|Subject: Re: Help with Greek Islands|
I have not done that trip yet but hope to some day. I did do a little investigating and it seems that you don't really need a car on the islands for an island hopping trip.
Here are a few planning sites from our Zine links library: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TheTravelzine/links

Also it seems that if you plan to use B&B's, you need not book except during high season. Hosts meet the ferries with brochures, etc. and take you to their homes.
As for seeing the islands, I saw a Rick Steves episode about the Greek Islands and there seems to be a good infrastructure of guided tours that you can take.
I know that Lucy and other Ziners have actually done the trip, so I will wait for further comments from Ziners with experience! I am also looking forward to your trip report.
