Athens Guide was first published in 1998 as a bilingual (English & Greek) guide to Athens. Eight editions are published annually and distributed to hotels in Athens, and it is estimated that over 650.000 tourists per year consult it.
City Contact developed the Info Stand system in 1996, providing visitors with useful information through free publications about Greece. The company also created, in 2004, Athens Walking Tours (offering, e.g. Acropolis and museum tours, as well as culinary tours in the city), aspiring to offer Athens guests a high quality cultural experience during their stay in the country.
