Stopped by on our way to a beautiful beach. Was worth the detour! Lia was the tour guide and did a fantastic job explaining the whole process of how they make olive oil and the different types of olives and oils. It was very informative and the olive oil tasted incredible. I would definitely recommend if you have any interest at all.

We went with a group and we all found the tour very informative and were impressed with how involved and sophisticated the setup is. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed learning about the process of making olive oil and just what "extra virgin" signifies. Well worth the trip.

A great tour guided by Mr. Kostas, a very nice person who treats the guests with a lot of hospitality. The tour of the Terra Creta factory and the tasting of olive oil must be on your list of places to visit during your stay in Crete. It's amazing even if you are not an olive oil addict. You will learn the process of production of olive oil, from the tree to your table. For us, this tour was worth visiting and we will make it again next time when we will be in Crete. We highly recommend it to everyone visiting western Crete!
Best regards,
Christian & Andreea
