What we offer is a unique, amazing and very interesting experience that you may live during your vacations. This is not a museum or exhibition but something alive and real. Surely after a visit you will never see honey or honeybees the same way again.
The aim and main idea of this tour, is to let people know about the very interesting life of the bee, the importance of this insect to our lives and also to promote our motherland and its ability to produce highest quality traditional products. These products, through the years, have lost their real economic and qualitative value. Through this effort we want to bring them back where they deserve to be.
Price : an 8€ small jar of honey as souvenir per person. Kids under 15 years old free.
