She was very good: extremely knowledgeable about eras, dynasties, sites and art in a place lived in for a LONG time--Lecce in Apulia--with multiple layers for everything. We had a walking tour on a rainy day, and she was undaunted and flexible. We enjoyed her company and the tour. The only thing between her and a 5 rating for me might be more experience with more different people (or I could be wrong), but she was highly competent and easy to be with.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for you nice review! I hope to meet you again, maybe in a sunny day! :-)

Frederica did a nice job of giving us a good overview of Lecce. She is very knowledgeable, communicates well, and showed up before the scheduled tour. Would recommend Frederica for your tour of Lecce.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your very nice review! I hope to see you again, maybe to discover another corner of my beautiful region!

Tour: The best of Itria Valley in one day, Bari, Apulia, Italy
Date: Nov 10/17

We drove for several hours today with Federica explaining the historical sights as we toured Lecce, Otranto, and Gallipoli. She gave us good reason to applaud our choice to visit Puglia for the first time. She made the towns and countryside come alive for us. Federica is personable and showed admirable flexibility in adapting to a delay we caused by a parking lot fender bender and the time of year. We will ask for Federica again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your very nice review! :-) I looking forward to meet you again to show you others corners of my beautiful region!

Federica was an excellent guide: friendly, knowledgeable, and accomodating. One caution: when you have North American guests, who need to travel to their destination, they need to be given extra time to commute. As well the parking near the Porta Napoli was a nightmare was very difficult. Despite the logistics we had a wonderful visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your review! I'm just sorry that today Lecce was particularly busy, is not always easy to find parking and without GPS can be even more difficult! My bests regards and I hope to see you again in the future!

Tour: The best of Itria Valley in one day, Bari, Apulia, Italy
Date: Aug 17/17

My tour of the Itria Valley with Federica and driver, Orazio, was outstanding - a day to be remembered always. Again, Federica displayed a pleasant nature and deep knowledge of the area. While we were on a tight schedule, there was also a certain flexibility to suit my needs. I would highly recommend Federica as a guide in the Salento.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your wonderful reviews! :-) Remember that you have a new friend with me in this area of Italy! My bests!

Tour: BrindisiandOstunishorexcursion, Brindisi, Apulia, Italy
Date: Jun 21/17

We enjoyed Ostuni but found Federica to not be as enthusiastic and pro active as we would have liked. It seemed expensive to have to pay for a driver and guide separately for four hours. We also had confusion about where to meet as boat docked elsewhere. We had to track her down to find her instead of her being at new location or contacting us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Cynthia, sorry to be seemed not enthusiastic. You accepted in advance to pay that sum for guide+driver, was not a last minute extra. Here guides are not allowed to work as a driver, who do this, has both licences or works against law.

Federika ws a delight. Very sweet, knowledgeable, agreeable, willing to show us whatever we wanted to see, tolerated my photography (time consuming) and even helpful in selecting photography opportunities. We spent the entire day with her and was able to cover three major sites (Ostuni,Alberobello, and Polognaro al Mare. We cannot recommend her highly enough.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many Thanks for your wonderful review! I hope you will follow to enjoy this beautiful region :-)

Wonderfully informative tour given by Federica last Saturday morning. We enjoyed it so much and she adapted to our needs so very well. There was no hurry and it was really relaxed and we really loved our walking tour and her lunch venue recommendation (there could not have been a nicer venue). Thank you Federica!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many Thanks for you review:-) Hope to see you again!

Federica was wonderful in accommodating a customized tour to Lecce to visit relatives we had never met in person. She was always very prompt in responding to questions and making the necessary contacts. She helped translate during this exciting and emotional visit. She is also extremely knowledgable of Lecce's history and culture. We give her a 5-Star rating and highly recommend Federica for your customized Lecce tour. Mark S.

Federica is wonderful. She knows Lecce, history and local areas. Her English is good and her pace was perfect. This two hour tour is a must and should be done at the beginning of your trip to Lecce.
