Roberto T.

Bari, Puglia, Italy

Here we are everyone, Ciao to all of you. My name's Roberto, I'm 41 years old, a native of Bari, Tour Leader with a great passion for Tourism and completely in love with my Land, Apulia.

Since I was really young, thanks to my parents that gave me the chance, I've been travelling all around Europe, North and South America and what has given me a great experience and memories of every trip, wasn't just discovering new places, but even more, getting in touch with local people. They gave me the chance to discover and learn about the places in a different and better way, from their local point of view, saying about history, art & culture and giving information and tips that I wouldn't be able to find in the official books guide. Simple trips that turned into a real cultural exchange. What a great experience!!!
I realized that the Tourism industry was my great passion, this is why in 2004 I graduated in Science and Tourism Economics at the University of Bologna. I wanted to be a professional. My passion became my job, so then my life.

I started working for international Hotellerie brands as well as for incoming Tour operators, but I felt it wasn't still enough. I wanted to do an experience abroad, so I left my country and lived in England for almost three years, improving my knowledge in the tourism industry and learning from a different cultural approaching style.
My dream was, one day, to go back to my land Apulia, and allow tourists which I like to call just guests, to discover all our amazing places, being personally by their side with the only purpose to let them enjoy a true and special experience that they absolutely won't forget or regret. So then, I opened my own exclusive ground transportation company providing private tours within Apulia and Basilicata.

Whether you want to enjoy a several days trip or just a few hours day tour, I will be pleased to be your personal Tour Leader - Driver. At the agreed meeting point, whether it is a hotel, a masseria, a bed & breakfast or just your accommodation address, I will be waiting for you, ready to conduct you to the planned itinerary.

Please note, I'm not a licensed tour guide for archaeological sites, museums and churches, but by being a Tour Leader, I will be more than glad to share my local knowledge with you, while doing sightseeing activities.
I love to customize each tour based on my guests' needs. I do work professionally by using my own fully equipped Van Mercedes-Benz up to 7 passengers, fully covered with special insurance and respecting all legislative aspects required by the Italian law.

Here I am, finally, at your disposal, ready, pleased and glad to let you enjoy a true experience in the heel of Italy.
