Loved everything about this activity! George picked me up at my location and is just a great guy and a great driver! He made sure to provide us with details about the different areas we drove through. Also all the other people, especially the tour guide were really kind and giving us a very warm welcome. The actual tour has a perfect mixture of information and tasting. It makes you feel how immensely important olives are for the Greek culture. It's mind-blowing how this high quality olive oil is so more intense in taste and smell compared to products from regular supermarkets. As the last highlight of the tour, George drove us to one of the oldest trees of the island - approximately 1500 years old! Considering the pick-up was also included, it was a pretty good price.

Just a great experience. Everything was just right. The drive from the hotel to the destination was very entertaining. Upon arrival we were immediately given something to eat and drink. The tour of the mill was very exciting and had a lot of humor. Which was mainly thanks to George. The tasting at the end was the highlight for me. In addition to the fine oils, there were homemade specialties that we were allowed to taste with the olive oil. On the way back we were able to get some information about the island and the inhabitants from our pleasant driver George. Will definitely visit the mill again next time.

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.
