Become an expert in olive oil with this tour. Spain is the biggest oil producer worldwide and Andalusia is the region known to have the biggest number of olive trees, so if you like olive oil and want to know a bit more about it, you came to the right place. Our tour will start by visiting a centenarian olive plantation, where I will teach you about how to harvest the olives and the traditional tools used in this procedure, a unique experience! After that we will drive you to an Andalusian country house which has its own oil mill, where you will learn about the process of oil production. Lastly you will enjoy an olive oil tasting to whet everyone ’s appetite before lunch. After this visit we will go deeper into Montes de Málaga and we will have lunch in the oldest inn in Andalusia and enjoy a typical plato de los montes. This place is called the Bandits Museum and it is a special place with lots of history. After lunch we will visit the villages of Alfarnate and Alfarnatejo, located in what is called the Pyrinees of the Axarquia. Both are beautiful villages in the middle of the mountains and surrounded by olive trees. This landscape is complete opposite of the one on the coast.
My name is Cipriano Ramos, I studied a Degree in Translation and Interpreting and a Masters in Tourism Management. I’m passionate about tourism and Andalusia, and thanks to my degree I can express myself perfectly in English and German. I'll show you the olive oil plantation of my parents, where I've harvested since I was a child, that's why I'm an olive oil expert. Also we visit a local family that produces the best organic olive oil in Spain (they have got lots of awards for their olive oil). I've been my whole life traveling through the mountains of la Axarquía and now I want to show this magic place to everyone. In addition I count on the help of María, she joins sometimes to my tours to help and take pictures and also she does the office work, we both take care to provide you with an unforgettable stay in our lovely area.
