Pagabit, you're asking for rather specific cost advice ... so it will help us if you are also specific. I'm an old journalist so I always ask for W's -- When, Where, What, etc.
WHEN: - u don't say. I hunted up your other post and it said "summer"... that's 3+ months. Taverna (restaurant) prices don't change w calendar, but room rates do... June higher than may, July-Aug-early Sept ar highest. It even helps if you can give the WEEK u have in mind, because some folks will helpfully do some rate-browsing in order to answer...
WHAT - i.e., What length? -- is it 8 or is it 10? And are u counting arrival day (u only can really do that if you land by mid-morning) or departure day (can 't really count at all). This affects costs - must u fly/ rent car. Also, what do you want to do? Just mainly enjoy beaches, or more? museums, ancient sites, hiking, water sports? Some r free, some cost €
WHERE - "some of the islands" could apply to over 75 options! Mykonos & Santorini are highest costs of all ... an unknown place like Kynthos might be a bargain, but does it attract you? Again I hunted your other post, and you mentioned Skiathos and Skopelos. These are not as often visited by R. Steves regulars... they're better known as Brit favorites... & they often attract "package-tour" bargain hunters from there, mainly going for sun & sea, not sites. The Trip Advisor forum for these islands contain many threads on specific costs, by budget-conscious UK travelers.
HOW? As in, How many? from "s" I'm guessing there are at least 3, but is it 4? 5? This will affect what rooms you can get -- in Greece you can't get those USA Quality-Court specials, where a "double" can be 2 queen beds in a room by the pool... in Greece triples r possible, more usually means several rooms. In Athens, fortunately, the booking dot com agency now not only offers hotels but also pvt apartments (with same guarantees & free-cancel provisions). Sometimes a group of friends can get an apt v. close to Acropolis for less than multiple rooms in nearby hotels. But this very much depends on DATES, another reason why specifics help us to help you.
