Greek tour companiesPlanning a 14 day trip to the Greek islands in May and hope to use a tour company. I have contacted True Greece, Travel2Greece/Travel line and Fantasy tours.
Does anyone have recent expierence with these guys? Or a suggestion for a different company tht does a great job?

1Tour companies have to keep different kinds of people happy. Even Rick Steves had to upgrade.
Do your own research a la youtube documentaries.
And eat and sleep at your own learning pace.
Solo is absolutely best. For many reasons.
Locals are reluctant to interrupt travel groups.
You have friends out there you haven't met yet. Avoid the ones who call you,"My freind" too much.

2Where are you from and why do you want a tour company? This forum is generally frequented by more independent travellers, not people that take tours. Having lived in Greece for 7 years, I can think of nothing a tour company can do for you that you can't do yourself. Unless of course you are not confident enough to travel independently or like having someone else decide what you see and do.
Of course if what you mean by a '14 day trip' is in fact a 2 week package holiday then that's up to you. The use of the word 'tour' doesn't mean 2 weeks in one hotel to me.
