  • 3-hour olive oil farm tour and tasting from Seville
  • Visit an olive oil factory, renowned for its high quality oils
  • Stroll through olive groves to learn about olive cultivation
  • See the oils being made and taste a selection
  • Buy your favorite oils at the factory shop (own expense)
  • Entrance fee and hotel pickup and drop-off included
After morning pickup from your Seville hotel, settle inside your air-conditioned minivan and leave town for a small olive oil factory, where one of the Mediterranean’s most-loved culinary specialities — olive oil — is made.
After approximately 20 minutes, arrive and meet the factory owner. Then, enjoy a leisurely stroll through the sun-dappled olive groves. Inspect the trees and learn about the history of olive-growing. Olive oil has been produced in Andalusia since Roman times, and olives are still harvested here by hand as they were then.
Having seen the orchards, explore the factory to watch the harvested olives being made into oil. Although the factory produces only a few liters of this ‘liquid gold’ each year, its oils are considered some of the world’s best. See the different stages of production, and then visit the tasting area to sample some varieties.
Try a selection of subtly bitter, sweet, and spicy oils, and swap notes on their mouthfeel and flavors. Complement your tastings with a local appetizer for the complete Andalusian experience.
If you wish, buy some favorite oils (own expense) from the shop before your trip concludes at the original start point in Seville.

The tour was excellent and I highly recommend it. We began in the olive grove with information about the cultivation of the trees and methods of olive harvesting. We then moved into a small museum with models of harvesting and production equipment used through the ages. Next was the grading and bottling of the oil- surprisingly similar to winery procedures. We finished with a tasting that was fun and instructive on how to identify the best quality oils and we also some unusual taste combinations. Our group of 3 generations agreed that the tour was a highlight of our trip to Southern Spain!

William was a most attentive guide and clearly passionate about his work. This was a wonderful beautiful location deep in the heart of the Seville countryside, helped enormously by the fabulous weather.
A picturesque property where envy of those living here is likely.
A special surprise at the end of the tour made a really good couple of hours even better....orange infused olive oil with chocolate ice cream!!! Dreamy.

One of the best tours we have ever been on. The small group was the three of us. We went to the Hacienda Guzman. It was olive harvesting season so we saw the product in the making. Our guide was from the estate and was outstanding. She explained everything from the various types of trees to the current production to the history to the estate itself. This was worth twice the cost and I would do it again in a minute. Great.
