We did this tour almost a year back and it was amazing. We got really busy right afterwards and completely forgot to review it, even though I had taken notes so we didn't forget it. We were looking back at some of the pictures today and that's when it hit us; how inconsiderate we had been for not posting this sooner.
Stefano, the guide, was just superb. He explained every little detail and then some. As soon as we got on The Beast the trip took off to an experience that honestly was burned into our souls. Every time we buy wine we think about all the special things, labels, and details that go into it. And as funny as it may sound the same is true for olive oil. Who the heck would've thought we would also learn so much about olive oil as well.
Whether you are by yourself in the region or with someone else. If you have the time you must do this. And if you don't, I recommend you make the time. It is just one of those experiences that seems to live with you.
And make sure you ask for Stefano and that you look for The Beast.
