Description

Cook like a local. We believe that eating is a personal activity but cooking craves company. Food has the power to communicate our beliefs, our experiences and our sociocultural backgrounds. Learning how to cook stimulates all of your five senses. Chopping aromatic herbs, combining unique spices, mixing up fresh local ingredients. While at the same time connecting with others.

What else? At the end there will be a heavenly creation awaiting for you.

| 360° food experience |

Description

What does it take for a specific kind of food to end up on our tables at its final fully eatable and super tasty form? Months, even yeats of growing and maturing, waiting patiently to reach the pick state of flavor. Then, comes the harvesting or extremely detailed picking part, cleaning and preparing to be processed and some much more. These all sound interesting but compared to experiencing the whole transformation with your own eyes, seeing the different stages and tasting along… Well it’s just magical.

What else? Learn the history of Greek foods in a 360° kind of experience. No more questions of how it got here, because you have already been there!

TRAVELLERS TESTIMONIALS

  •   I highly recommend booking a tour with Alios Tours! My husband, 14 year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our history and food tour of Chios town. Danai is the perfect guide, extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. All the stops were interesting. We visited places and tasted food we probably wouldn't have discovered on our own during our time in Chios. Danai was also super helpful in giving us tips for restaurants to try and the best beaches to visit. We would have loved to book other tours with Danai but unfortunately our stay in Chios was too short! We will have to come back again soon! More

  •   We didn't know what to expect from the Greek cooking class, but we were so glad we signed up on our trip to Chios! It was during our second day on the island and was a timely introduction to Greek cuisine. The location of the class was beautiful with grapevines hanging from overhead arbors. Danai was a great host- she was very warm and friendly and had everything efficiently organized so we spent all our time cooking without any of the cleanup. She also was very knowledgeable about the local herbs and culture and weaved it into the experience. We prepared a variety of dishes: stuffed zucchini, eggplant salad, tomato with eggs, Greek salad and stuffed cheese pies- all delicious and prepared with fresh, local ingredients. After, we ate our dinner under the grapevines with some local wine. I highly recommend Alios Tours for your Greek cooking experience! More

  •   The cooking class was spectacular and Danai was an amazing and personable host with a lot of knowledge. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and couldn’t ask for more. The table was nicely set for two afterwards. Highly recommend!

  •   I've come to Chios every summer as a child, and my fondest memories were being on a boat with my grandfather, who was a sailor in Chios. I knew coming back I had to find a trip for my family to have the same amazing experience of seeing the island from the water. When I read about this tour I was elated to see the sailing/snorkeling trip. Even though I had issues with it booking twice (totally a computer error) Danai was on top of communication with me and fixed it without any hassle. They day of the trip was truly magical. The boat was gorgeous, the food was delicious and, most importantly, the crew, Nick and Maria, were completely delightful. My 16 year old niece went along and was terrified of boats before this trip. They were so good about calming her fears and making us all laugh. I can't recommend this trip enough!!! It was THE highlight of our time in Chios...and I can't wait to return and try more of their tour options! More

  •   We took a sailboat out for a full day with friends and family (10 people). Some locals and some were first time visitors to Chios from the US and we all had a blast. The crew, Nick and Maria were as professional as they were fun to hang out with and fluent in English.The boat (The Nemesis, lol) was beautiful and in excellent shape. As clean as can be.
    Danai and the Alios team made the whole process really easy to book and truly went above and beyond making themselves available. We listed a nut allergy as a dietary restriction when booking the trip and we could tell the crew was not only informed of it but was attentive and planned ahead for it.
    All around an excellent experience. Would 100% recommend. More

  •   On 26/06/2019 we went on the Kampos Food Tour. Our Guide war Danai, and she was very knowledgable. We were picked up at our appartments, and driven around Kampos for around 4-5 hours.

    Some of us had been going to Chios atleast once a year for around 20 years, while others had never been to the island before. Wer all agree that this was a very worthwile tour, and we all learned a lot of new things about Kampos and Chios in general.

    The stops were all very interesting, even for those of us who had already been to some of the stops several times over the years.

    I would difinitely recommend this tour to anyone who are interested in history, food and/or agriculture. More
