    This tour and tasting was the highlight of our trip. Terrific local insights into olive oil and the farm is stunning. The olive oil tasting was absolutely delicious and paired with so many fresh, yummy treats that were homemade or picked directly from the farm. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!

    This was the best tour we've ever been on. Costas was a dream host. It was a very special experience that we will not soon forget. We learned about all of the olive trees, their fruit, the olive harvesting process, and the history of the land. As a very special added bonus, we visited during harvest season and went to see the olive oil being made. This was a highlight of our trip to Greece and if you ever have the opportunity to enjoy this tour, please do. What an experience!

    The tour with Costas on his olive farm is a MUST DO when you’re in Naxos. Costas has a passion for his craft, and it shows in every moment of the visit. He guides you through the farm, explains the property and the growing process, and ends with a lovely tasting of different olive oils. One of the top experiences I’ve had on any vacation, hands down!

    The tour of this olive oil farm is a MUST DO if you are on Naxos. Costas is wonderful and we learned so much during our tour about what it takes to have a thriving olive oil farm. We even got to eat some figs straight from the tree and feed his donkey who is featured on the olive oil's logo! I was happily surprised by the delicious snacks we received at the end of the tour so that we could have an olive oil tasting and pairing experience. I highly recommend this experience and will be back to visit Costas and the farm on future trips!

    Costas and his olive farm was spectacular! The tour was beyond what we thought we were coming to. Amazing food and learned enormous amounts. Very personal from a family run business. His food he homemade for us paired with his olive oil was some of the best we’ve had. Do not miss this amazing experience. Unforgettable.

    We had such a great time touring the olive grove, which Costas & his family have run for decades. It was much more beautiful than we expected. Costas was very kind & knowledgable--it was great to hear about how the farm & area have changed over the generations. The olive oils & food pairings were also amazing!

    This is an absolute must-do experience in Naxos, and I cannot speak highly enough of it! Not only was the location stunning, but Costas was the best guide. His passion and knowledge about the farm (and animals on it), history, and the olive growing process was amazing! Costas provided a wonderful olive oil taste testing and cooked us a beautiful and delicious meal. We also got to meet several adorable animals along the way and enjoyed a gorgeous sunset. The experience truly made our trip to Naxos special and would love to do it again.

    A magical experience that I would recommend to anyone who is passing through Naxos. Costas is very knowledgeable and passionate about his olives and sustainable agriculture. His tour is informative and the walk through the village and the property gives an insight into the authentic lives of the people of Naxos that you may not otherwise experience as a visitor/tourist. The tasting in the middle of the olive grove was absolutely idyllic and the food pairings prepared by Costas were delicious, he walked us through exactly which oils pair best with which flavors. I love how the tour group was smaller and more intimate, as well. Overall a lovely way to learn about the island’s agriculture and meet other travelers, and we were each gifted a bottle of his own oil!

    So glad I did this! A somewhat random selection for me, but great to see a part of Naxos away from the touristy areas. Costas was a delight: passionate about what he does. Place was beautiful. Food after our tour was excellent, fresh and local, and experience sitting outside among the olive trees to eat was lovely.

    This was a fantastic experience, one of the best that we have done. Costas is very knowledgeable and earnestly shares his knowledge of and approach to farming. The carob eating donkey and the extensive snacks (almost dinner) at the end, with innovative ways to use olive oil, were both unexpected surprises. Beautiful farm and the tasting was excellent. We loved it.

    This experience surpassed all my expectations — and they were high after reading such great reviews! The olive farm is an idyllic spot tucked away in the mountains, an easy drive from Chora and a nice contrast from other areas of the island. Costas was knowledgeable, friendly, and shared insight about so much more than olives. The tour was imbued with historic details dating back to the Venetians and personalized with Costas’ own family history on the site. Highly recommend visiting the farm to get a glimpse of this hidden gem!

Costas is so warm and friendly and his family’s olive farm is a beautiful and magical place. You will learn a lot about olive trees and the history of olive oil production. And the little feast he prepares is bountiful, so don’t eat right beforehand! We took the evening trip and got to witness the most beautiful sunset. Book this ASAP! And BE SURE to message or call Costas for directions. Don’t be like us and think you can find it on your own. Any G00gle maps will send you to the wrong place.

    I can’t recommend Costas’s tour highly enough! He is incredibly knowledgeable about the farm and its plant life, not just the olive trees. The tour begins with a walk through the orchard, where he gave detailed descriptions about the trees, varietals, and the process of olive oil productions. After that, you get to taste a variety of olive oils with tasting notes and other key facts. The food he makes to accompany the olive oil is also delicious, with a fava bean purée and beet dip being particular highlights. We learned a lot and had a wonderful time!

    We a great adventure. My advice is not to eat beforehand or afterwards for sure a whole. Costas prepares a lovely meal in a gorgeous setting in his orchard. Walking around during the first half is educational and fun to see the different varieties of trees. Tasting/Lunch in the orchard is a delight. Just do it

    One of our favorite Airbnb experiences we’ve ever done. Costas is a wealth of knowledge about Olive farming (and about farming in general). For being so young, it’s absolutely incredible how knowledgeable he is. He is informative without being overwhelming. His family property is really cool with a huge variety of plants that you wouldn’t expect. We plucked delicious ripe figs right off the plant. He also made us a huge variety of dips and foods, all using produce from his property and his olive oil of course. He also gave us gifts of his olive oil to take home. I highly recommend you do this experience. You won’t regret it!

    What a great tour through Naxian farming culture and success. It may not what you normally think of when you go to Naxos, but totally what you should do. We got a ground level tour of the farm, as well as a great dinner & olive oil tasting. I never thought or had olive oil that fresh. Ever. Definitely worth your time & participation.

We learned a ton about the olive oil making process from Costas and he surprised us with a delectable spread at the end to go with the olive oil tasting. To top it off, his brother was playing a concert in an old building owned in the family and he invited us to join him at the concert. What a complete delight!!!

    Costas was an excellent guide explaining his farm and olive orchard. He really took us through a special hidden part of Naxos. His deep understanding and passion for olive oil comes through in his narration of the trees and the extra special tasting experience. He did a great job walking us through different types of oils and brought us a feast made almost entirely from things grown on his farm - it was some of the best food we had all trip (and that's a high bar!). It really felt like a hidden gem and secret garden and the cherry on top was Costas taking us to the 17th century old mill and farm buildings he and his father restored. 10/10 would recommend for any and all groups. So worth it.

    Costas gave a wonderful tour where he taught us about olive oil production, farming, and Naxos. It was amazing to hear not only about the fruits, vegetables, and oils that he makes, but also about his own life and family history. His passion for his farm and community is so evident. He also served us a delicious fresh dinner made with ingredients from the farm, as well as picked us up/dropped us off in the center of town, as we didn't have a car. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Naxos!

    My girlfriend and I had high expectations going into our tour with Costas, and we can say that this experienced lived up to the hype. We had an amazing time exploring his farm, learning about olives/olive oil, and sampling fresh produce. The highlight was tasting various olive oils and then having a feast made with all fresh ingredients from the farm (potatoes, cheeses, tomatoes, green beans, tzatziki, eggplant dip) plus ice cream topped with citrus olive oil. Amazing! Costas was very welcoming and couldn’t have been a better host!
