I wish I could give Giorgio more than 5 stars! It was a fantastic tour of Alberobello and Matera. He even stopped at some beautiful sights along the way. We learned a ton and the day went so fast. I cant speak highly enough about the quality of tour we received.

Matera and Alberobello are our top dream destinations, and Giorgio gave us a memorable experience! He is knowledgeable, super polite, friendly and kind. He took us into the real Trulli house, which is amazing! We had wonderful coffee and lunch in Matera. We learned so much from him about the cities. He drove carefully and tried his best to make our travel experience as smooth as possible. We would definitely recommend Giorgio as a guide. He's the best!

On a scale of 1 to 5, we give Giorgio at least a 6! He was very, very knowledgeable and he was a ton of fun. We toured Matera, where we were staying, and Alberobello. Without Giorgio, the history of Matera would have been lost and the history is fascinating. Giorgio not only gave us the history of Aberobello, but brought us into the trulli homes, allowing us to engage with the town in a special way. We were in Europe for five weeks, using several guides. Hands down, Georgio was the best.

Rich information, Friendly, feel welcome, fun and brilliant man. Giorgio is now my most favorite guide. He will make time for me and you and be sure we understand the history. Even though he made the efforts for me because I'm deaf. I highly recommend him to be your guide. Thank you so so much Giorgio!! ����. They are so beautiful towns

Giorgio was a wonderful guide. His lovely personality and excellent English along with his love of the Puglia region and connection with the locals was invaluable giving us an extraordinary experience we would never had had if we didn't have Giorgio by our side!

Highly recommend if like us, you don't have a car and pushed for time to see these amazing places in Puglia. Giorgio was a fantastic guide - knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating when we asked to include a last minute detour to Grotte di Castallana. He's well loved by locals and showed us a warm and inviting side to Alberobello (avoiding the mass tourists!) and a very engaging tour of Matera. Grazie mille again!

Giorgio was personable, informative and gave us a great day in Alberobello and Matera. He knew al the locals in Alberobello, which made for a fun experience. Had lunch in a cave in Matera! A day we will always fondly remember.

We, a family of 5, had an amazing tour with Giorgio. He listened to what we wanted to do and shared an abundance of knowledge he had about the history of Bari. He was very energetic and happy to guide us through each spot, taking us through the not so crowded areas which made the tour that much more authentic. It was well organized, he was punctual and very accommodating. We felt very comfortable asking him many questions to which he knew every answer. We would definitely recommend Giorgio!!

We had a great day out with Giorgio!! He answered all our many questions and brought us to taste some really delicious food. Also, he knows everyone in Alberobello and that made the experience really special. Would definitely return for more tours together :)

Matera (being the 2019 European cultural capital) and Alberobello are well known names by now .. both being very atmospheric in their own right.. it is within that background, that it takes a guide to elevate it to something more human and not just a collection of monuments. Giorgio, being the person he is, is very able to fit that role admirably .. and his passion shines through in any discussion. This was a full day filled with history, frescoes, trulli and FOOD. Superb recommendations and tour !

We had an unforgettable trip around Italy and Giorgio made that trip even better! Giorgio has passion for what he does and he is willing to go the extra mile for us - e.g. we were supposed to visit only Matera and Alberobello but he suggested us to visit Polignano a Mare on our way home and it was outstanding! Giorgio is an knowledgeable guide and a respectful and easy-going person. Thank you especially for making an effort to talk to my parents in "portunhol". Wish you all the best with your family!

Giorgio is the best tour guide we have ever had! He was prompt, extremely knowledgeable, and very friendly. He communicated with us ahead of time to understand our goals for the tour, and he was very flexible about accommodating our specific interests. He went out of his way to personalize our day with stops for local tastings and to see special places not known to tourists. We would not have enjoyed our tour as much if it had not been for Giorgio's enthusiasm for the area. Thanks, Giorgio!

We had a very short period of time in this incredible region of Italy and wanted to make the most of it. WE could not have gotten any luckier with Giorgio. He picked us up, got a feel for what we were looking for and quickly planned out an incredible day. His pride in his home town of Bari and the entire region and the enthusiasm he showed in sharing it with us was quite genuine and was exactly what we were looking for. Don't miss out on this incredible region and this incredible guide!!

Giorgio was better than the best. He was personable, informative, and fun to spend the day with. He knew everyone and everyone seemed to know him. Our tour included many unexpected extras — food and wine tastings and a bit of the Bari old town even though we had only booked a tour of Matera and Alberobello. You MUST book a tour with him. Excellent!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joseph, it was just an amazing tour! Thank you very much for your mood (and for your feedback)!!! All the best!

I would like to call Giorgio a perfect host and an ambassador for Apulia instead of an outstanding guide. He is friendly, Polite, smiling, has deep knowledge about the region being a locals and most importantly know how to keep the child engaged whole day . He prioritized our interests still provide detail enough information to understand the history , food and culture of the region. He is highly recommended for guided tours across the region.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dibyendu, thank you very much for your feedback. I am very happy that you appreciate my tour. I loved our tour because you were great guests, very interested and easygoing. Your son "Giovanni" is simply amazing and I am happy to ear news from him often. See you again in Apulia! All the best!

Oh what a fantastic day. We chose this tour so we could have the "local" experience and Giorgio did not disappoint. Arriving on time, Giorgio drove us safely & comfortably to visit Alberobello & Matera. Giorgio's flexibility to accommodate several "espresso", wine, cheese and olive oil stops, while sharing his knowlege of the region and giving us many "unique" opportunities that only a local could arrange. Don't miss this tour with Giorgio. Excellent local knowledge and excellent English.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linda, I am very happy because of your satisfaction! It is very important to be flexible, even because this part of Italy is not very famous and you can't leave it with a "classic" visit of the monuments. The beauty of this area is people and real life and this is what I love to show. Ok, espresso wine and olive oil are amazing and it makes it easier for me! :) All the best and... Grazie!
