My husband and I stopped by after our visit to the cave. The olive oil was fantastic, and we were given a tour by both Brenda and Joanna, who were absolutely hilarious and very friendly. The scenery around the factory is idyllic, and the owners also run a nearby villa. I would definitely come back on my next trip to... More

You can't visit Crete without learning about the art of olive oil. Joanna greeted us with a warm welcome and gave us an interesting tour about the traditional and modern ways of olive oil production. We had a great time !!

We showed up on a Tuesday afternoon. We were the only ones there. Joanna came out and greeted us like family! We learned a lot about the history of olive oil production. You get to taste the wonderful love oil and purchase if you wish. We had a wonderful time and we highly recommend it.

Great visiting and seeing all the latest ways of olive oil production as well as a glimpse into the old ways of the past. The Korneiki olive oil is one of the best there is.

Because we were curious how olive oil is made we decided to go to this factory. It is easy to find and there is enough parking space to be found. There are tours with a small tourist train if you don't want to go there by car yourself. The staff is very friendly and has a lot to tell about... More

Very informative tour of olive oil production from the early times to modern day. Our host Joanna, was very personable, pleasant and knowledgeable. We felt at home and we had the opportunity to taste some amazing olive oil which was produced on property. Definitely worth the visit.

We made the visit here based on the other reviews on trip advisor. We were shown around by Brenda who was a great and engaging host. It was great to see the olive oil process and how it has changed over the years. You can purchase the oil at great prices with no pressure to buy. We enjoyed a great... More

Absolutely tasty, fresh and locally made. No chemical stuff in it. The smell of the olive trees was present everywhere. Really nice place to visit. I also recommend local bakery for the tasty Nut's biscuits-delicious. You can get them in each of the Cretan bakery. Enjoy :)
