Very good guide Kostas, price-performance ratio for half-day tour not good

March 18, 2018

The trip was well organized, picked up in the morning at the hotel and a smooth drive to the olive oil company and plantation area. We got a good overview of the process, and everyone was welcoming, despite feeling a bit rushed. The average score is mostly because the experience is extremely overpriced. It doesn’t justify the investment for ~45 minutes of drive back and forward and ~60 minutes of explanation of the process (not even a real demonstration as the production only arrives in the afternoon, something that could have been easily communicated and arranged for a better experienced), with a nice tasting, but 80€ per person quite a stretch to be honest.
