We took this tour while on vacation in Sardinia, accidentally missed our date but were graciously accommodated 2 days later. Guiseppe provided an excellent, most informative program on the olive trade and olive processing business. He was friendly, entertaining and provided answers to all of our questions about the olive industry. Olive oil and olive tasting coupled with local breads and sausage added completed an excellent experience. We enthusiastically recommend this tour
