Olive Oil tasting & Farm-to-Table Lunch
Mediterranean Diet: Food & Style

Spend a morning with us and connect to our authentic local life beyond massive tourism and staged tourist space! It is said that Greeks in rural areas live longer thanks to daily working physical activities, consuming lots of olive oil paired with fresh non- processed food and and slow paced life for low stress.

Our tour begins with a drive inland Naxos, to the unspoiled -off the beaten path- tiny village of Kaloxylos where time stands still…  On the way, while driving through the oldest olive grove of the island with over 800 years old olive trees, we discuss about food and the tastes of Naxos. On arriving, we follow picturesque alleyways leading to a 100 year old olive press factory. Connect with our local centuries -old local tradition, taste local olive products and learn about olive pressing techniques. Then, just as the Greeks do, enjoy sitting outdoors for a glass of local wine and more local “farm-to table” finger food including our famous Naxian cheese. Continue with a walk through the village to reach the olive grove fields and hike through a peaceful natural environment where we discuss all about the historic presence of olive trees on the island and the current techniques of harvesting. Learn about our “liquid gold” and its nutritional benefits. Our nature walk will lead us to Chalki village, quaint old capital of Naxos where we enjoy a memorable Mediterranean  gastronomy experience with traditional dishes, more local wine and homemade desert. End our revitalizing morning with a visit to the over 120 years old- family liquor distillery and savor our local digestive drink!

They said after this tour

This is how you become a traveler, not a tourist. You leave ceiling like you’re leaving family. Vegan friendly, just ask
I chose this tour after communicating with the owner. Her attention to detail, ensuring we had vegan options at each location was amazing. If you are looking for something to connect you with the culture of the island, this is what you want. You won’t see large bus tours, and you won’t deal with large group of people. You will connect one on one with each owner of the locations that you visit. You can’t help but leave, wanting to help them. The food is amazing. We really enjoyed the walk to each location and seeing where everything we ate was grown and cultivated.

Just what you need after the hassle & bustle of Santorini
This is a must do tour for a real Greek experience. We were amazed with this tour. Elizabeth was an excellent tour guide, Knowledgeable, personable and passionate about Naxos culture. We learnt about Greece/Naxos food and fauna and how the richness of Naxos environment creates so much nutritional foods. We passed by all types of fruit beating trees that provide seasonal produce. She also pointed many of local plants and their uses. The 2 stops we made for food were at a small local restaurant and the other was in an olive farm. Both amazing!! Best tour we’ve taken in our stops on the Greek islands!

Naxos eating local
Had the best day on Naxos with the Mediterranean Diet Experience Tour. Our tour guides Katia and Elizabeth were delightful and so knowledgeable. Really can feel the love and pride they have for their island. Took us to see local restaurant and olive oil farm as well as giving us the history of the village. I would highly recommend!
