An informative visit to a genuine old olive oil factory. Our guide had a genuine passion for the local olive oil produce and local food in general. The olive oil tasting at the end of the tour is worth the very small entry fee and is supporting the preservation of the history of Parga.

We arrived just as the oil tasting was starting so we were invited to join in and then had our own private tour with the owner at the end as we were the only people left. He is very passionate about his subject and it was a very interesting hour or so being shown around the museum and learning how... More

I visited this place yesterday, on the last day of the holiday after almost forgetting. I am glad I remembered as it was a most informative visit and I certainly know quite a bit more about olive oil than I did before. I will be making sure I only ever use extra virgin olive oil in future! The tasting session... More

All were off the chart and I bought them all... More

We went to the Greek cookery evening they held. It was fab we learnt to cook Greek meals and they send us the recipes afterwards. It was just a good evening and everyone was so friendly Would definitely do this again when we are back next year

The tour ends with tastings of olive oils and related products and how to appreciate them better. Lots of exhibits and info about old Parga and an old way... More

We went to buy some olive oil as Parga olive oil is supposed to very good. We were not allowed to buy any before sampling the oil. This gave us the chance to try them all. They were so delicious we bought the gourmet oil and a lemon flavoured oil and one infused with oregano. The lady who served the... More

A cloudy wet day saw us seek refuge in Paragaea. It was like travelling back in time as we explored the old traditional back breaking ways of producing Olive Oil. Our female tour guide was extremely learned on the science and chemistry of Olive Oil production.....and the restored olive pressing equipment and original machinery and fabulous building was a wonderful...
