I thought this would be a simply, short kind of tasting/tour. However, I could have stayed much longer. The history is amazing, our host was incredibly personable and informative, the orchard is spectacular. I loved it.

The proprietor of our hotel arranged this tour for us after I asked where I might buy the lemon flavoured olive oil that was on the table at dinner one night. We spent over two hours being educated, entertained and amazed by the very passionate, engaging Corrado, the owner of this beautiful property. Walking among the ancient trees was lovely... More

How can you miss visiting a location where olive oil has been produced for 3,000 years? They've done a lovely job creating this tour - just the right length at about an hour, with a visit to the olive trees, the underground olive oil mill and the "modern" masseria mill above. In the afternoon, the light on the 1000-year-old+ trees... More

Organic, very beautiful place. If you really want to know about... More

We even got to see a 3,500 year old Olive tree - incredible. Angelo took us into the olive groves and showed us so much,, we... More

I am not the sort of person who spends hours at these sorts of attractions but I am glad my wife suggested this one? Absolutely fascinating and very professionally conducted in an intimate way. Who would have thought that olive trees and their produce could reveal so much?

My wife had wanted to go here from the moment we landed in Puglia, but I wasn't too keen on how she had described it, I eventually relented and have to say it was a great hour we spent. The guide was great, the tour interesting but not too long and reasonably priced at 20 euros for a family of... More
