What a great tour! Nikos did a wonderful job of setting up a last minute Greek olive oil tasting, and combined it with a ride to the airport. The tour was very informative and it was really nice to actually see organic living first hand. They teach you about their olive trees, different qualities of olive oil and tastings, their chickens, composting, how they wisely use their water resources and their products that they use and sell that are organic.

The hand lotion is amazing. Our driver was very helpful and shared local information with us. I would definitely do another Greeking.me tour! Excellent quality, service and very informative.
