What people are saying about Jaen

The tour was very extensive and informative. A lot of effort was made to show us all the important processes and we were able to take a lot of information with us. Despite the impending major event, everyone took the time to answer all of our questions. If you want to understand/see the process of olive oil production, this is the place for you; the tasting was also very informative. 100% recommendation!!

We were lucky and were the only participants on 10/11/22 (10/12 is Spanish national holiday). So we had a very relaxed guide who always answered our questions in detail. The explanations regarding the entire production process were also detailed and very detailed. We were completely satisfied and can definitely recommend this tour.

Very interesting visit. Unfortunately an English speaking guide was unavailable for our visit but they let us know well in advance and offered a full refund but we decided to go ahead and enjoyed despite the slight language barrier (we live in Spain so have some Spanish).

José was a wonderful guide, excellent host explained us everything about olives, oil extraction. Mariza was also very kind and taught us a lot about different oils and the tasting was amazing! We really enjoyed the tour!

Very interesting ! The CEO himself gave the explanation. Very expert explanation.
