A Recent Review of this tour

Our trip on the 28th - to Lecce, Otranto and the Salento coastal sites - was also excellent, another 12 hours of Gianluca's time when we saw and learnt a lot about sites that have long interested us. When we think of that region we shall think of him, and all the knowledge of a very good and experienced local guide.
