Dopios.com, a community marketplace that connects travelers and locals launches in San Francisco
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.

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.
