Another great visit
Oct 2021
Last visited in 2019 so no need for the informative tour again. We were there for the shopping and lunch! And both did not disappoint. Lovely salad with fantastic homemade bread at super price. A range of interesting gifts and, of course, excellent various olive based goods to taste. Plus on this occasion a pleasant informative chat with Thanasis and Angela.
Well done Nikoletta - an excellent attraction well worth a visit by car.

Much better than I expected
Sep 2021
This is a delightful little attraction. Information about olive oil pressing and some of the old equipment. Not too much to over burden you. The people in the cafe/shop are so nice and friendly. You can sample lots of their products and you can also eat some of them in The cafe. Highly recommend the olive oil cake. The stuff in the shop all priced very reasonably. Really like the olives stuffed with gherkins which we bought.

Interesting little place, free entry
Sep 2021 • Couples
This isn't too far from Naxos town (by car) and was a change from just twisting by the pool. It was open 10 am to 6pm when we went and we just turned up. Entrance was free. The museum is small but really well restored and the lady who explained how olive oil used to be made was friendly and informative. After the 10/15 minute talk, we then went next door to the shop and tasting area where we could try different flavour olive oils, stuffed olives, olive cake and jam. There was no hard sell which made a refreshing change. We bought curry flavour olive oil (husband reassures me I will like it!), a tea towel and some normal oil but other people bought nothing so no pressure. There is a nice area outside too, next to a picturesque church. There is not much else in the town to do.

Love the Olive
Sep 2021
The experience actually begins after rounding a turn along the coastal mountain road and the stunning view that appears of the green valley. It requires a moment to pull over, and take it all in. Then the trip down to the Eggares Olive Press Museum. We had a great visit with Thanasis and Angela Nannas who provided told the story and then offered samples - olives, preserves, and oil. As a home cook, I loved this culinary excursion.

A wonderful experience for all ages. Nikoletta was wonderful in showing us the history of her family in making the best olive oil in Naxos! The staff working there was also wonderful and extremely pleasant! We got to taste olive oil in the most unique flavors like chocolate, truffle etc! They also have a great selection of all natural hair, face and body products made from olive oil and the quality of superb! Save your money to shop for some great olives, olive paste and of course olive oil to take home! Make sure to stop by check it out yourself!

Nice place to visit
Aug 2021
A friendly young man showed us around in the museum. It’s only a small showroom about the history of the olive oil production. The tour is for free and includes also a tasting of olive oil and other products out of olive, The english of the man showing us around was really good and he did a really good job.

The tasting was simply amazing
Jul 2021
Wonderful tour (excellent English) - not too long for our 13 year old and a lot of good information about how old style olive presses used to work.

But really the highlight is the tasting. We'd never had things like Olive Marmalade or Sweet Olive with Yoghurt which were just divine.

Of course there were different flavors of olive oil and olives to taste. My son was particularly excited about the chocolate flavored olive oil...

It was a pretty drive up from Hora (naxos town where the ferry arrives).

We didn't try the cafe, but it looked good if you're looking for a salad or other simple things.

Definitely worth the visit!

All of the employees were so friendly and welcoming. The tour was quick and interesting and the samples were delicious! We tried everything! Olive oils, marmalades, olive oil cake… great stop, not far from town, for a unique experience and goodies to take home.

Nice and informative place
Jul 2021 • Family
Very interesting place. It's rather small but very informative. We were told how olive oil was produced and how it is produced now. The guide was really friendly and explained everything well, without any hurry but very relaxed. There's a little shop attached, where you find plenty products made of olives (olive oil), you can also taste different oils (f. Ex. Orange flavor), spreads, cakes etc.
We also enjoyed some coffee and homemade lemonade. I would recommend ordering the homemade orange cake made with olive oil (very tasty).
