We met our friendly guide-cum-driver Dmitris at the tour agency office and were taken to Anoskeli olive oil factory where we were given a tour of the facility before adjourning to the tasting area to sample their olive oil and a few of their wines. On this tour we were also accompanied by a local sommelier Andreas who shared his expertise with us. We were also taken to visit the oldest olive tree, and the olive tree museum next door. It was very interesting, lots of exhibits and tools on display. Lastly we had another round of wine tasting at a lovely restaurant Salis. Another a lovely outing, thank you Dmitris!
Marvelous day and one of the trip we still look back at and wish to re-live the day over and over again. Everything was perfect from the beginning to the end. Starting with a very punctual pick-up and introduction of the day. Nasos is a super entertaining and attentive guide. You get to see not a touristic countryside with very carefully chosen places to eat All in all a day full of memories with an amazing guide. This trip and experience is definitely a must!
A great tour to learn about olive oil and taste wines, which we probably can only drink here in Crete on holidays, but best of all is seeing the places where it’s produced and meet the people behind. All the guides were really nice, very knowledgeable and helpful to explain why Crete is such a special place if it comes to food and drink! Highly recommended and be taken at the beginning of your holiday!
Dimitris was a very knowledgable and helpful guide. Everything was organised very well with timely pick up and drop off. The olive oil factory, ancient olive tree and vineyard tour were all efficiently and easily presented with enough time to enjoy each of these places, together with the personal touch from the guide. Highly recommend.
The guide was very informative. The first winery was educational, natural and the wines good. The second winery was very commercial, small group became a large group and shock horror a Canadian guide. Wines except for the dry white were very ordinary. Surely you can do better than this place.
