We had a wonderful time during this tour. We had a friendly and warm welcoming. Our tour guide was the best. Truly recommend if you wanna have fun and if you are curious how it’s made the quality olive oil production on the same time. If we come back to Corfu we will visit this mill again.

My husband and I booked this tour last week when we were on a cruise. First, it's important to say that we were NOT picked up at the time we had confirmed. Thankfully, we were given their number in the confirmation email. My husband called and spoke to one of the sons who acted as if he was not aware we were scheduled. He had scheduled a group of 4. He told us that his father would pick us up and to stay where we were. I called again and the son got snippy with me. An hour later, my husband found the 4 people inside, who were waiting just as long, and then the father arrived. These people have no sense of time. The tour ran long and we weren't able to do anything else that we had planned outside this tour. No apology from anyone. Having said that, we were able to pick olives, see lots of very old olive trees, sample olive oil and how it's made and see the wild oregano mounds. The son showed up very briefly to give his little talk and then left. A woman gave the rest of the tour.

An amazing experience, George is as fun as he is knowledgeable! We took away great tips and facts that will inform how we get our olive oil in the future. The whole family was so welcoming and the tour itself felt really personal. A great way to get in touch with other elements of Corfu other than tourism. Also the picking up and dropping off is really handy!
