A most informative tour , thank you Kosta. From tree to bottle all is explained in a friendly way with all our questions (clever or stupid) answered equally. There is so much more to this than olive oil and we'd encourage anyone to visit this tour who enjoys their olives.

Very interesting and well planned tour of the factory which told us everything we'd been wondering about oil production, such as what the bags hanging in the trees were, how the harvest was organised - as well as some gossip about working with Cretan farmers! Our tour guide Lia was terrific and the tasting was great fun. Well worth a... More

Went to buy some local Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It would have also been possible to go for a tour to see how they make the products. Excellent quality, best in the World!

If you consume olive oil, or more importantly, if you don't, read why you should up your intake! Our guide, Lia, was superb and told us what we needed to know about this product. Hadn't realised how well controlled the production is here in Crete and we learnt how to differentiate between different oils. There is an opportunity to buy... More

I am very fond of olives and olive oil but have never stopped to consider the intricacies involved in the making of truly high quality produce. Crete olive oil is the mother lode and it is easy to see why! Lia was a charming and most informative guide and showed that just two people can run a plant making thousands... More

Costas gave us the tour; he was very friendly and patient with our many questions. Their operation is very impressive. They have contracts with many olive tree farmers, across the island. One neat fact is that the leaves that are left over from the cleaning / stripping process are vacuumed off, and then dumped into farmers' trucks lined up outside;... More

It was a nice visit, but it felt like it's not open for the public. We went only to the shop. You can try the different oils and you can buy them there, it's much cheaper than in other stores.

We visited Crete last week and booked a tour at Terra Creta last minute. The tour was very informative and interesting. Our guide, Lia, was very nice and knowledgeable. Gives a great insight into the production process of olive oil with a tasting session at the end. Can highly recommend this to anyone.
