Unfortunately there were so many things I didn't like, that I will share only the three main points, which might help others to consider a visit:

First of all, employees didn't wear masks in facilities, though "official signs" were hung up. The tasting possibilities were in a way, that every visitor could have touched all the samples at the same time and therefore spread bacterias and more. Since we are currently having a pandemic, I would have wished a better solution for this.

Secondly, everything is purely focused in a commerce way with all possible authenticity, which such a place could have had, is lost. Starting from the short welcome talk/monologue to the whole way the "tour" is built up.

Last but not least, I overheard the employees gossiping about me and my partner, since they thought we could not understand Greek. As a Greek I am more disappointed of their attitude against tourists/visitors then what they have said about us. The two male employees clearly lost sight on what they rely on and see visitors just as cash cows. Next to a general appreciation about all prospects/visitors, I hope they get their values straigthen, since they represent not only their company, but are also part of a whole island as well as country related on tourism.

After overhearing the trash talk, we didn't want to try or buy anything anymore. Therefore I can't say anything about the produced products. Due to the displayed prices, I just hope, that they are as good as the prices high.

To sum it up, I rather try to find a smaller unknown local olive oil producer, who appreciates people being interested and buying his products.

This is more of a shop inside a factory than a museum. It has a few old exhibits (including a 1500 year old olive tree) as well as a few factory machines. There were some olive oil freebies to try but they were more like samples for the things you could buy. I would've liked to see a quick tour of how the olive oil is produced but there wasn't one. A good stop if you're around, have about 20 minutes to spend and want some olive oil products but not worth going out of your way for it.

Wonderful experience. The staff were friendly and informative. The olive oil we sampled was top notch, served with home made bread, you are able to sample everything they sell. Considering the quality, it wasn’t expensive. The added bonus is that the packaging is designed to be leak free in cans so that it can be transported home easily. Smaller sizes make excellent gifts.

We visited Aristeon as part of a Royal Caribbean Enchantment of the seas visit to Zakynthos. We spent about an hour here. A member of the staff provided a nice tour of the history of olive oil in Zakynthos, their company, and how the olive oil was produced. We then tasted all their olive oils. The olive oils were excellent and we bought as much as we thought we could manage. One note the metal cans can leak in your suit case. The glass bottles did not.

We came here as part of an organised trip. On the face of it I didn't think it sounded too exciting, but I'm so glad we went! Very interesting to learn how olive oil production works within the local economy, and very comforting to know how the business is working to high ecological standards. There is zero waste - everything is utilised in some way. Very ingenious. Plus, the olive oil products produced are extremely high quality.

We had a very good guide, who explained everything to us, showed us how the press works and then we had the opportunity of tasting the oil. Their oil is only from Zakinthos olives and it is delicious; in fact, it is the best olive oil I have ever tried. My only regret is that I bought only one litre , as there wasn't enough room in my luggage. If you visit the press, which I advise you to do, buy Aristeon oil. The price is good. You can also buy it in UK( I only found it on internet, not in shops) but the price is double.

I wanted to go purley to taste the oil, my hubby wasn't intrested. After the trip however it was all he could talk about. We took the fun bus trip round the countryside, past a ceramic workshop, through the olive orchards and to the oil press. The guide at the factory was very enthusiastic and knoledgable. We got to taste oil, bread, olives and home made wine. The latter blew your head off!
It was a really intresting trip and a nice break from the party life. It was a nice chance to see proper greece.

Well here we have another useless attraction for the summer visitors. OK it is interesting to have someone tell you about the way that olive oil is extracted etc. and the products that come from it, except that the olives are not off the trees until November so you can't actually see anything happening. You may as well read about it in a book. There again, of course, it gives the owners the chance to ply you with goods to buy. You had better get rid of it while you are on the island because unlike the old days, you can't take it home with you on the plane. I wonder if everyone who has bought the oil remembered that. If you are going on the island tour you will probably be taken to the olive plant, so it doesn't really matter.

We took the small train the the olive factory present journey, on arrival we where shown the olive procedure from raw product to the the tasting of the finish product and I must say we tried the lemon and orange olive very nice, a great place to spend an hour.
So we brought one of each, returned back to kalimaki on the next day whilst in the tourist shop we saw the same products at a cheeper price, we brought at the olive factory expecting to have a discount for buying it their, so be warned go and visit the factory but buy your olive oil on your resort in the tourist shop.

We dropped in here after visiting Keri. This isn't just a museum, but a fully working olive oil factory. The entry and guided tour was free and lasted about 20 mins with great spoken English from the guide. After the tour we could help ourselves to tasting the various oils with breads, and try the cosmetic products. Did I mention this was all free?! We were so impressed we bought a 500ml bottle of the top quality Dopia oil for 10Eur and it tastes amazing!
