PRLog - Sep. 24, 2012 - dopios, or ‘local’ in Greek, is a community marketplace where travelers can discover authentic experiences created by locals. Users can get travel tips before they go, plan adventures for their next vacation, and meet new friends. dopios is taking travelers beyond the guidebook and plugging them into the real experiences of their destinations.

Dopios allows travelers to search for local experiences by destination city, and then filter the results by their personal travel style to make finding the perfect adventure even easier.
For example, the night owl may want to partake in Underground experience with Gystilyn who will take you to the Speak-Easys, Hole-in-the-wall pubs and art spots of SF, while the outdoorsy may prefer a hiking experience with Alexandra. A traveler may also choose Rob-Nasty Rocker to meet the The Bay Area Hip Hop Dance Community or even have a simple walking tour in Mission District with Christina.

CEO and Co-Founder Alexandros Trimis explains how the idea originated: “We noticed that every time we got home from a trip and were showing our pictures to family and friends, we’d skim through the one’s of the usual tourist sites and then stop. We’d see a picture of one of us with an interesting looking character, or a quirky shop filled with unique treasures. The difference? It was no longer just a picture - it was a story. dopios provides the opportunity for travellers everywhere to connect with locals and create their own stories.”

In addition to experiences, dopios also offers free travel advice from locals including: what to pack, where to stay, how to make sure your cell phone will work, or how easy it will be to find free wifi. dopios is currently offering travel experiences to Athens, Greece and has just launched in San Francisco planning to expand their list of destinations over the coming months.
