I have read all your answer very carefully but i still need some way of 
getting it done.

All my Greek website visitors say they are from Europe/Athens which is 
the ISP's location and not user's homeland.

Well it worked for me but as many other told me it wasn't accurate for 
them too.

Please try this:  http://www.maxmind.com/en/geoip_demo

and tell me if maxmind's database can pippont you city's location.

Thank you.
