  • Excellent place to learn about olive oil, its history on Istria, and to taste how extra virgin oil should taste. Very interesting place, very informative tasting session.
  • Very pleasant experience. You should definitely do the tasting. The audio guide is not really needed.
  • The history and true nature of olive oil. Very informative .
  • We had a wonderful experience visiting today. My kids were tired and grumpy, and I honestly didnt think they would want to do the tour. The lady was so nice and helpful. The kids ended up having a really nice time and even learned some about olive oil! Win-win!
  • Amazing if you want to know all about actual olive oil and how to do proper oil tastings. Your mind will be blown. Guaranteed.
