Super interesting and educational experience. We learned a lot about olive oil and the Cretan culture. Several oils were tasted with suitable small dishes and one could see the influence of the oils on the taste of the food. We were guided through the evening with great passion and a lot of experience and had the experience all to ourselves. The ambience under the old olive trees and surrounded by sheep and goats was simply stunning. Here we can experience a picturesque sunset that we will not soon forget. Definitely recommended for those interested in culture with good taste!
This was an amazing experience. Aspassia, our hostess, was a delightful, friendly and experienced lady. She explained all about the different kinds of olive oil and had us sample a few. This was then followed by wonderful Cretan plates to sample with the different oils. We went back home to check all the information on our current olive oil bottles :) I would definitely recommend this activity to anyone who is looking for a nice, relaxing afternoon in an olive grove.
Great and informative evening with Aspassia. You can feel she's doing it with a lot of passion and loves to share her passion and knowledge with others. We loved the food and how she explained the tasting. Beautiful location as well. We can recommend the tasting for people interested in food, nutrition and the history of olive oil in Greece.
Super friendly, super personable guide with lots of information! This is followed by a tasting in the shade of olive trees. Definitely to be recommended.
Such a beautiful setting and loved learning & tasting different olive oils.
