What to expect?

  • The name Kampos (campus in Latin) is found in travelers’ accounts since 1673, and it means valley in Greek. Kampos is a protected area by the Greek Ministry of Culture as a historic site and traditional settlement. During our Kampos Food Tour, we visit a traditional mansion and see what’s hidden behind the walls while enjoying a Greek coffee with traditional delicacies in a famous citrus grove.

  • We continue to a mansion built in the late 17th century, and learn all the secrets of how to make Greek sweets from fresh fruits, and we taste the handmade marmalade of a family-run local business.

  • As we drive through the narrow streets of Kampos, we end up at one of the first microbreweries in Greece and the only one on Chios. Remember, you will taste a secret beer that is only produced on Chios!

  • We now move to the outskirts of Kampos, where laborers used to live. We visit 2 unique farms, and we meet the owners, who share their story and the uniqueness of their products.

  • Our tour ends with a dinner at the most picturesque tavern of the island, where we enjoy a view of Kampos, the Chios strait, and Turkey.
