An excellent informative tour by very knowledgeable and engaging hostess.

The visit to the ancient olive oil factory was very interesting and informative. The olive oil tasting was just excellent and the wine tasting was also very, very good. We had a great time. Highly recommended.

Thank you, Violeta, for a fascinating and delicious tour of the groves, the historic olive mill, and tasting. We learned quite a bit about the history and process, and what to look for when buying one of our favorite condiments and culinary ingredients. The local wine and cheese tasting was a perfect complement! I highly recommend this tour especially if you are not traveling through southern Spain with a tour as you can get picked up at a central location in Granada for the 30 min drive south. Wonderful way to spend half a day outside of Granada!

The Olive Oil Tour in Granada exceeded my expectations. We met our tour guide (very kind and personable) in the city and took a bus into the countryside. The first stop was an olive grove, where we learned about the gardening and harvesting of olives. Our second stop was at a historic olive oil mill that overlooked the groves. We learned about olive oil, types, growing regions, and misconceptions of labeling. The olive oil and wine tasting was both informative and delicious... I highly recommend this tour.

I booked this spur of the moment, while we were on the train from Madrid to Granada and was delighted that we could jump into a tour that afternoon. There was one other couple booked for the tour and the guide first brought the four of us to the olive fields, and then up to the old olive mill in Niguelas. She explained the water system (and the water in Niguelas tasted great!), and how the mill worked back in the day. After the tour we went for the olive oil and wine tasting, with lovely bread, meats and cheese. This was really fun and I wish I didn't have to worry about suitcase weight limits because I would have purchased plenty of oil and wine. Try the orange infused oil on bread with sugar! I think the whole tour, from pick up to drop off lasted about 3.5 hours. Our guide was very pleasant and informative, and there was absolutely no attempt to get us to buy stuff.

This tour is an example of a rare opportunity to see very old industrial equipment still in place and in workable condition--a village's olive oil production center (including a stone grinding room and two large wooden presses) that is intact after several centuries of use. Tour guide Violetta explained the workings of the machinery very clearly, as well as the production cycle of olive trees, the interactions of small farmers, and the processing of the olives. The tasting session was an added benefit. My late teens nephew really enjoyed the experience as well.
