Anita was very welcoming and knowledgeable. We learned a lot about identifying quality olive oil and felt her passion with the subject. We were visiting Mykonos during our cruise and wanted something different than normal to experience. Anita helped us find a private car to pick us up from our Port to travel to the restaurant for the tasting. We feel we won't be able to enjoy our local supermarket olive oils anymore after experiencing such amazing olive oils from the Mediterranean. We only wish we could have purchased some, but our ship didn't allow us to bring liquids. Anita was kind enough to leave us with a small gift that we could bring back onto the ship, though. I will be recommending anyone visiting Mykonos to look for this experience, or find a similar one for other places. There is a lot about olive oil that most people don't know anything about.

The Olive Oil tasting with Anita was a very special and rewarding experience during our time in Mykonos. Anita is a wonderful hostess and her expertise on EVOO was nothing less than outstanding and eye opening. I highly recommend this experience for anyone visiting Mykonos. The products, the experience, the company and the local atmosphere was exceptional.
