They had to employ horses to reach... More

In Parga on honeymoon we visited the Old Olive Oil Factory just up the hill from where we stayed. We had a friendly, knowledgeable and informative guide, and the exhibits were modern and well thought out. There were visual displays as well as opportunities to listen to summaries, so it catered to all tastes of receiving information. Plus the actual... More

We decided today to visit the factory based on Trip advisor and it was wonderful. The staff was very good and they provided us so much information. We tasted also an olive oil and we spent very interesting time.

We spent a very interesting hour visiting the museum and shop. The staff were incredibly knowledgable, especially the olive oil tasting. Educational and excellent value for money.

We went to visit the olive oil factory based on trip advisor reviews. I must say I don't regret it at all. You will find there very interesting facts about the process of olive growing, harvesting and oil production. The most interesting parts, however, was the tasting of olive oil and their delicious dressings. We came back for some goodies... More

This lovely little museum is well worth the €3 entrance fee. Very interesting to learn about the differences in olive oil production 'then' and 'now' and very informative tour guide. Good to finish off with a tasting too. No hard sell at the end for the shop. Don't miss this during a visit to Parga!

This is an old olive oil factory, though not now in use. It features a display of museum quality equipment, plus tasting the produce of the family press some 10 km from Parga. We were given a tour by a very personable and knowledgable young lady, who, we gathered, is a member of the family that own the factory and... More

We just visited this tour and it was very interesting tasting the different oils and learning about the change in how it was processed back in the day and what happens now. It gives you more of an appreciation of how much time and effort goes into it and why it's expensive. The guide was really lovely and friendly and... More
