We were picked up in time and drove for 30 minutes. We started the tour learning about the olive trees, the type of olives and the work involved during the whole process of obtaining the oil. We visited the olive oil museum and after we did the oil and wine tasting. I absolutely love the tour and our host was very knowledgeable and friendly. This tour is a must if you visit Granada.

What a great day we had on the Olive Oil Tour! A knowledgeable tour guide showed our small group the olive groves, giving us the interesting details about olive trees, types of olives etc. The setting at the base of the Sierra Nevadas was spectacular. We were driven to the old (15th-century?) mill in the little village of Niguellas and given a very interesting tour, after which we moved on to the olive oil tasting/wine tasting which was interesting and fun. Lovely tapas of bread, cheese and iberico ham were provided with the wine tasting. You can buy the products you have tasted (both wine and oils) on site. Highly recommended as a day tour from Granada and the surrounding areas (Nerja, La Herradura, Almuñecar for example).Note that we ran into another tour group at the mill and we could see that other tour companies maybe have much larger groups - this made Olive Oil Tour preferable since it seems that they keep the groups small. Thanks to our guide for a wonderful experience!

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.
