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!
The best safari we’ve been on and we have been on a lot! Costas our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable nothing to much as long as we were having a great time! Lunch was so tasty better than the norm with lots of choices. If your going to do one trip make it this one!
This trip was excellent and very informative for those wishing to learn more about Greek wine. The whole event was very relaxed and we enjoyed the wines and food on offer. I would highly recommend if you like wine and a nice day out in the countryside.
Our guide Stelios was great! - Informative, sympathic, relaxed and a good driver. The price is worth the tour. Stelios was able to speak a pretty good german! :)
