Stavros was an excellent guide for both explaining the process and products of EVOO as well as the correct way to taste test! What a fun and informative tour of such a historically and nutritionally rich consumable! We loved olive oil before but we’ll look at it now with an even better appreciation.

This experience was lovely. The tour guides were very informative and the place was beautiful. We walked around the vineyeard and stopped under some shade for some further information. When we went into the factory unfortunately it was closed due to being out of season and this was a bit dissapointing but we should have done our research first. At the end we could try some oil and bread and this was really delicious. Overall I would highly recommend this trip.

We really enjoyed this tour. I thought I knew a bit about olive oil, but learned so much more. Stavros was excellent at explaining the process from tree to bottle and taught us how to properly taste and assess the quality of various types of olive oil. I would highly recommend this tour. we were in a group of 2 adults, 2 teenagers, an 11 year old and a 7 year old and all enjoyed it. Bonus was all the yummy olives, olive oil, bread and balsamic vinegar we got to try. Tanya
