The tour was segmented into to fairly equal chunks, with small interludes whilst you walked to the next station. This allows you to absorb the clearly presented information. Very informative, and you will perfectly understand the company's aims and ethos by the end. The partnership between the company and the growers espouses great shared values. You truly appreciate the quality of the products by the time you have tasted a number of oils at the end. The endeavour to increase sustainability is also admirable. The guide is so informative, clear and professional. You will leave feeling you have shared in a very impressive operation.

Our second visit to TERRA CRETA was just as wonderful as our first back in 2015. The guided tour was really inspiring and pleasant, and the people was awesome and obviously possess a wealth of knowledge on olive oil craftmanship.
We will definitely come back and we recommend Terra Creta in the highest terms.
The olive oil produced by Terra Creta is magnificently made to the highest standards, and the taste is second to none. We ♥️ this place.
We look to recieving our olive oil which Terra Creta will kindly ship to our home.
Kadeau!

My husband and I loved this experience! The tour was very informative and they provide great visuals to break down the different components of the olive oil. Our guide was highly knowledgeable and willing to answer all of our questions. They let us taste most of their olive oils and olives etc which was great. They also have lower prices on site if you buy directly from them. Great experience and good price. Hope I can find their products in my country!

Every time we come to Crete we make sure to drive out Terra Creta. I’ve tasting olive oil in Italy, Israel, and across Greece and this is my absolute favorite brand. We love buying it directly from the source. This time we didn’t call ahead for a tour but happened to walk in as another group was there and the company had set up a full spread of tastings not only of olive oil but of different types of olives, balsamics, etc. You can buy their basic oils in many Cretan groceries stores but going on site lets you taste their newest and more elite oils. You may want to call or email ahead to see when they will have a similar tasting set up, and the tour is def worth doing if you haven’t done it before. They also sell wine skins and fancy bubble wrap packets at a very reasonable price.

I truly love olive oil and use it everyday, but this is the best experience ever learning so much more about the process itself and especially how the quality of the oil is ranked in the world. Terra Creta offers extremely tasteful oils with many awards among the best oils in the world. The local guide was very clever guiding us through all the different phases and parts of the production. Highly recommended to visit Terra Creta! Generous tastings are included- absolutely a must when visiting Creta! A highlight of our visit.

Well worth doing the hour tour if you’re in the area. We turned up without tickets and got into a tour easily at 2.30 at the end of September. We learnt a lot about how olive oil is produced and the factory is worth seeing in itself. Fascinating facts from Stavros about the olive oil industry in Crete and can now distinguish between a good quality and low quality olive oil! We’ll be back to stock up on more oil on another trip I’m sure!

The tour guide explained the process of harvesting, making olive oil, and tasting good quality olive oil in a clear and interesting manner. The tour was well organised and interesting. We had our young grandchildren (aged 4 and 7) with us and they especially loved the tasting part at the end of the tour. Highly recommended!

Lovely location and very friendly staff. The tour itself is rather simple but the process well explained. The tasting was very good! There was lots to try and also a large selection of olives. For the price, this was excellent value. The only reason we gave 4 and not 5 stars was the basic nature of the tour itself - don’t expect a full day out but a great and very cheap way to spend a some time.

We loved the Olive oil tour! I highly recommend this for anyone wanting to learn about olive oil production and nutritional benefits. Lia was a fantastic tour guide and very knowledgeable. The tasting was so fun and we got to try Terra Cretas full line of products afterwards. Put this on your list of must see when visiting Chania!
