We had a wonderful tour with our awesome guide Γιάννης. He provided so much interesting information about the history and culture of Crete along with what we would be seeing at the winery/olive oil factory. Effi was also wonderful explaining how the olive oil is made and then educating us on all the great wines her company makes We highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves wine and/or Olive Oil. 5***** all the way.

We had an amazing time and experience in this tour. The host of the tour Andreas, made it super interesting and entertaining, being professional sommelier he shared his knowledge with the group and made wine tasting even more enjoyable. Though it would be great to add to the tour actual walk through the grapevine field and wine making facilities.

We had a great day out on this tour, the first winery and olive oil tour was particularly good, and we bought a bottle of their bio olive oil and it is far and away the most delicious I've tasted. Totally recommend, they also really don't push you to buy things it feels very relaxed and informative. Andreas was a good guide very knowledgable about wines and made it fun. Be warned, the lunch is more of a series of small snacks, I could have easily skipped the second winery, and had a nice lunch in a village taverna instead. I didn't think the wine was as good, and the tasting element was a bit lost.
