Fabio was terrific. He kept all 8 of us Canadians very entertained and well fed with all the samplings he introduced us to. As well he is very knowledgeable, paced his tour to make sure questions were answered, the group were of different ages and he was respectful of needs and interest of the group and shared his wisdom about Lecce and other areas in Puglia. We would definitely recommend him to others. He also knows quite a bit about Canada.
