  • We did the boozy brunch option. We got picked up and taken to the estate. We got offered a nice coffee on the terrace before the tour. The tour was fantastic very clear and passionate about the making of olive oil. The brunch was excellent fresh produce and a good selection of Cretan wine. Beautiful setting under the shade and olive tree in the garden. Then a quick drive to the oldest olive oil tree. Fantastic experience you have to try. Very family orientated everyone was so so nice!
  • Very knowledgeable tour guide, I did not know that my knowledge of olive oil was so poor! The estate is also beautiful. We had some drinks before the tour with some very good olives, and cheese. We wanted to order some food but the kitchen was a little ‘stressed’ and we did not get the opportunity. This was the only downside. However the oil was really good and we bought a few bottles. I would recommend and advise you book.
