No one ever explained how to get back to the cruise port. Not once were we told to get on a bus with a green plaque in the front window. It was very frustrating!! The busses themselves were nice but I don't understand why you would put advertisements on the windows. That made it very hard to see what we were supposed to look at. Overall, it was a frustrating experience. Very poor communication.

Very straightforward from buying ticket online to finding meeting point, it was refreshing to alight this cool air conditioned bus on a boiling hot day. The riveria route was beautiful and really helped me find my bearings so I was able to navigate independently around the coastline after the trip.

Being in the middle of summer we felt that all the buses should have had the rooftop cover. Many of your buses didn't. Your rival companies all did. Also many times the bus was late in arrival.

Variety of tours, overview from recording. The staff especially at the acropolis stop were very helpful and considerate

Two of the drivers went out of their way to help us. One driver stopped especially for us when he saw us running for the stop where there would not be another bus for an hour. Another driver took us to a stop out of his way to connect with the other line as he'd run late due to traffic and was aware we had missed the last connecting bus from his last stop.
