  • What a great tour! It 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 many more. I would definitely do another Greeking.me tour! Excellent quality, service and very informative.

  • Our multi-generational group of 6 (4 adults, 2 kids) had an amazing experience on the Olive Oil Tasting in March. Prior to the visit, the team at Greeking.me was extremely professional and responsive, adapting the itinerary to our needs. Additionally, the guide was truly amazing. Would definitely recommend this group!

  • The project of Perivoli, where we had the workshop was an inspiring and passionate permaculture venture. Host Anna was warm, knowledgeable and humorous. We learnt a great deal about the olive in general and Greek olive oil in a pleasant walk through of the property and a sit down presentation which was very engaging with tasting activities. Highly recommended!
