I was there in September and I can recommend the yellow hop on/ hop off bus. Everything was fine and you can reach the city and sea easy. The Guide Giannis was always very friendly and eager. He also gave me some insider tips to make my stay in Athens more beautiful, thank you for that! The next time I travel to Athens I will definitively book the ticket again

I wanted to take originally the red bus cause I know this company from trips in other countries. They had no more service for the beach tour, were higher priced and finally booking a ticket directly on their website failed anyhow. I read some reviews on get your guide and booked the tour with the yellow bus, which went all smooth. There was an issue with the data transfer of my ticket but the guide at my first stop was very helpful and fixed it. Later when I reached the Acropolis, I wasn't sure if I had enough time to go up right away and make it for the beach tour connection, or visit afterwards. The guide there, Giannhs, gave me very good advise for my schedule that day, so I made to see everything I had planned. He even gave recommendations what is most worth to get off and see at the next day. Overall, I'm glad red bus didn't work since it's a local company and everything was just perfect.

Upside: The people who are running it are very attentive and informative. Dimitri(?) was the reason I purchased the ticket. He was great. It was nice to have access to various parts of Athens. The buses are timely and frequent enough. Downside: Some of the buses were dirty. There was trash on the floor and dirty seats which made me cringe a little bit. Some of the buses had internet, some didn't. Some of the headphone jacks didn't work. I tried to purchase a ticket online but the terms of agreement said you had to print out your ticket. I didn't have a printer because I'm traveling so I had to buy on the bus. I lost a little money on it. The 24 hour route is enough.
