The Alios Tours guided tours strive to offer a piece of history, as well as the hands-on experience, at all times. We are true believers that knowing the details of a place is what makes you really learn about it. You can’t say that you visited a place just because you spent a few days there. You have to get involved. When you experience first hand the elements that create a place to begin with, that’s when you actually get to know it. Chios is diverse and complex. It has a rich history, more than enough locally grown and produced products and its residents have stories to share that you won’t find anywhere else. All you have to do is be there!
