We went to Tasting Crete with friends from Germany who absolutely loved it. Not only did Giorgos tell us interesting facts about the origins of the olive oil, but we also got a really good glimpse of the whole process of olive oil extraction. The highlight however was the actual tasting itself with some expected and some surprise elements. We also had 3 children (between 7-9 years old) with us who found the whole experience also very entertaining. All in all a highly recommended and very different activity for when you are in Crete.

George was an exceptional host and exceeded my expectations! My sister & I enjoyed the entire experience of Cretan Olive oil tasting & paring. George thoroughly covered the truths & myths of different olive oils & showed us new & exciting foods pared with them. As of this day, we are no longer “butter” people.
