Really enjoyed our first olive oil tour and tasting experience, located on the outskirts of Ronda. Easy to find and excellent reception facilities just above the parking lot. The introductory video provided a short (5 min or so) overview and history of the farm, and then we set off with our guide and speaker/earplug, which was needed if you lagged behind the tour guide a bit, whereas if you stick close to the hostess there is no need for the ear piece. The tour guide offered a multi-person golf cart for those who could benefit from the lift for the 40min walking tour of the farm property through the various fields. Upon returning to the main building, we were ready to partake in the olive oil tasting experience, for which the hostess guided us through and provided some tips on pairing the different types of oils. Great value in this unique experience!

This tour is more than just an olive oil factory tour. The place is gorgeous! You can feel the touch of Philippe Starck everywhere and the grounds are breathtaking. You also learn about the process of extracting the olive oil and how to differentiate between different kids of oils when you do the tasting. It was definitely one of the highlights of our Marbella holiday. 100% recommended.

very interesting. the experience of an olive oil tasting was also new and put olive oil in a different light.

Very good tour and tasting. Interesting insights into an organic olive plantation!

So beautiful & our guide was very nice and informative:)
