There is a mixed view on taxi service at Athens. Some drivers gave payment receipt and were very co operative and some took extra passengers in the front seat and some even diverted from the shortest route. All the taxis were neat and clean.
make friends with your driver!!! They will take you to the best spots off the beaten path!
I ended up "hiring" my driver for the time I was in Athens, felt safe and took all the headache out of getting around.
