We were picked up at corfu town by George, the younger brother. He was very friendly and while driving to the mill he already taught us a lot about Corfu culture and nature. When we arrived at the mill some other tourists joined and we started the tour. He took us on a journey through time explaining and showing the process of making the olive oil from the past generations to the present. After this we were invited to go to the tasting room, where he taught us how to taste and appreciate the olive oils. Next he took us with the minivan to the olive grove where we saw the 'mother tree' more than 1000 years old. We got to know a lot about the business, olive oil, corfu culture and nature. He took this trip to another level and made it the best day on the island so far. 5 star day, i would recommend everyone!
Despite the merciless heat, we had a very great, informative excursion with a guide who, after a briefing on the trike, led us through the old villages and hilly landscape of Corfu. We saw the KaiserSitz, enjoyed an olive oil tasting, which was mentioned very well by the way, and also a nice, cool, small winery. Lunch in a small tourist-free tavern was also delightful, despite personal dietary restrictions. We received information and explanations for everything we saw at the 3 viewing stops. Just great. It was fun! If we are in Corfu again, we will be repeat offenders, promise ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ +
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.
Had a great time learning about olive oil and lovely tasting. Exceeded all expectations. Feel like quite the olive oil expert now.
It's an amazing experience with the great Host George!
