Exceptional experience

We were amazed at the level of knowledge and passion for the product that came through during the tour. What a great privilege to watch the process of making olive oil from start to finish. The kids were thoroughly entertained as well and we all left extremely satisfied (thanks to the tasting at the end). I can’t recommend this experience highly enough.

Be charmed and fall in love with olive oil

A little detour but with so much to gain when learning so much about the humble olive. My daughter and I really enjoyed this tour, which in the end was just for us. Not only was it an interesting interlude in our trip to Spain, but we got to taste some amazing oils. Even if you aren't interested in the history and harvesting of olive oil, you will, I am certain, be charmed by this visit to a family-owned enterprise.

Really thorough, informative tour, well worth it!

Guide works at the mill and was really knowledgeable about the industry and process. Tour ran over and he stayed extra time, explained all the products in the gift shop, and even helped me figure out how to get to my next destination. Great experience and I learned a lot about olive oil production.
