The estate was in a bit of a funny location but I was pleasantly surprised with the tour and surroundings of the estate. The tour was very informative and interesting. We got to see the machines used and the process of producing olive oil. There was opportunity to taste the different oils and there were also olives and pastes to taste. You can buy at the end aswell. Tour guide spoke english. The toilets were the floor style ones where you have to squat. Atmosphere was friendly and welcoming.
Very nice Tour in German with Information about past and todays manufacturing of olive oil. The guide was very nice and showed us the whole manufacturing process. We just went there spontanous and got a Tour immediately. At the end of the tour you can taste different olive products (oil, paste, Raki, olive Marmelade,...) and buy them relatively cheap.
