We hired a private driver to take us around Crete for a day and Terra Creta was our first stop. Nothing else during the tour could compare. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and courteous. Learning about the making of olive oil and the he history and Grecian oil was so enlightening and entertaining. The tasting was excellent and informative. Everyone who visits Crete should make a point to stop at Terra Creta.

Terra's tours do a great job of showing the end to end of olive oil. The joy of the tour was seeing start to finish how olive oil was made and then the education of how to taste and assess the quality of olive oil.

This was a very enjoyable and informative tour. Maria is an excellent guide and spared no expense in providing a great, customized tour. I gave it four stars instead of five because I had to leave behind all of the olives and olive oil I purchased at Terra Creta at the Chania airport due to regulations prohibiting the transport of olive oil. I did not know that these restrictions were in place when I purchased at Terra Creta. Visitors should plan to consume any purchased olive oil before departing Greece or risking losing money and product as we did.
