There is of course the "soft option"
Why not look at booking with an independant "small" Tour operator. This is what I tend to do almost all the time these days - the 'reps' are usually local e-pats who live on the island and are there for your assisitance only ( no sales pitch and definately No welcome meetings, although they will visit your accomodation to see you are OK from time to time i f you wish) No tour busses - instead private taxis or pre-arranged hire car.
All in all a very civilised way to go. You can of course book your holiday here on the CTG, Agni travel will take care of your accomodation and transfares - and all you need then is to get a flight sorted out, simple.
