I have personally found Dolphin Hellas Travel Agency in Athens to be one of the most responsible and reliable in Greece. They are one of the oldest agencies in Greece and go out of their way to make sure their clients have a problem-free holiday. They can book hotels, cruises, tours, transfers to and from the airport, hotels, ferries and cruise ships in Greece and all the Greek islands. George and I dealt with Aliki there. She speaks fluent English and was VERY helpful. I liked having someone there, on the spot, in case we had a problem. We have used them on two separate trips. http://www.greecetravel.com/dolphinhellas
Another cool idea is Fantasy Travel's http://www.greecetravel.com/create-an-itinerary Create Your Own Itinerary page where you click to choose the islands and they number of days you want to spend on each, category of hotels, days in Athens, land tours or whatever and submit it to the travel agency. They come back with a price within 24 hours. See www.greecetravel.com/create-an-itinerary. I have never used them though some friends have and were happy with the arrangements.
We too hope to go to Greece (after the Olympic fury) and drive for a few weeks in the mainland. When we return from Paris in July, I'll start the planning. We leave in a week and we're getting excited. A week each in London & Paris! ......Heaven!
Hope this helps!
