The old olive oil factory is hidden away in the back streets of Parga, but pretty well signposted. It's well worth the effort to seek it out. The guided tour begins with a video explaining the importance of the olive historically in the region. You are then shown the different stages and "machines" involved in processing the olives. Finally, there... More

When I've heard about this old oil factory I did' know what to expect. After I visited, I did't regret it because was worth it. The guide was very nice and explained everything about the factory. At the beginning they showed us a video about how is the entire process of olive oil nowadays. The best thing it was olive... More

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

Find it just up the alley next to Johnny's place and it's signposted from there. + the girl giving the tour was a delight and it was her first tour. + the tasting goes through two types of EV oil; tapenade; mustard dressing; lemon EV oil and orange EV oil. 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

A great insight into olive trees and olive oil manufacture. Starts of with a 15 minute video followed by a tour of the factory following the process of olive oil manufacture. 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
