What people are saying about Chania Regional Unit

This experience was lovely. The tour guides were very informative and the place was beautiful. We walked around the vineyeard and stopped under some shade for some further information. When we went into the factory unfortunately it was closed due to being out of season and this was a bit dissapointing but we should have done our research first. At the end we could try some oil and bread and this was really delicious. Overall I would highly recommend this trip.

Stavros was an excellent guide for both explaining the process and products of EVOO as well as the correct way to taste test! What a fun and informative tour of such a historically and nutritionally rich consumable! We loved olive oil before but we’ll look at it now with an even better appreciation.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was varied with several stops, including a folklore museum, a cheese factory, a winery and a fantastic lunch. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour for those who want to learn something about village life.

Excellent guide and very interesting. We learned many new facts about olive farming and olive oil production. Value for money and I can recommend a visit!

Christina’s tour was absolutely fantastic! She perfectly planned our day and was responsive and accommodating. It was the best!
