It’s always interesting to listen to those who are passionate about what they do and that’s what you get on this tour! An entertaining few hours listening to how George and the many generations of his family cultivate, harvest and produce olives and the resulting oil. It was a much more interesting topic than I thought it was going to be but when people work to produce the high quality of produce that these guys do, it always is. George was super friendly, lively and easy to ask questions of (he always knew the answers too, which always helps lol). Can totally recommend this tour to anyone and everyone!
Had a fantastic time on the governor’s tour yesterday (18 May 2022). The whole experience was an absolute highlight of our holiday and we haven’t stopped talking all about it.
The pick up and drop off service was ideal for us and with the tour include the price was so reasonable!
We had such an entertaining time – the tour guide was such a laugh and provided us with so much history and knowledge of not just the olive trees but the whole island.
The oil tasting was an additional bonus with our taste buds being stimulated and satisfied with the final gorgeous product of the Governor’s extra virgin olive oil. Can’t wait to use it properly at home!
