We had a wonderful 3 days tour. The personalised tour met all my desire & dreams come true. Gianluca is flexible, friendly, patient & accomodate your every wish. Thanks for the 'generous time' spent, we had great lunch everyday; thanks for showing us all the great view points & nice photos taken; thanks for contacting the 'owners' & sending us to the B&Bs (with the heavy luggages); thanks for making this a safe & memorable trip. Love Puglia & miss you much!

I highly recommend Gianluca. He was such a pleasure to work with, and went above and beyond to make sure everyone had a fabulous time. He is flexible in the plans, making sure to make minor adjustments on request. He is also knowledgeable and made the entire experience fun for everyone. Of all the guides I have worked with, he has been my absolute favorite. Thank you for making this trip extra special!

There is no way to find a better tour and tour guide. Gianluca is prompt, patient and extremely knowledgable. He speaks excellent English and goes out of his way to accommodate your every wish. He is a true gentleman at all times. His tales and history of Puglia are so interesting. There is not one question or request he doesn't satisfy. After our three day trip, we were sad to leave him. He certainly made our trip to Puglia one of the best we have ever taken!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rudelle and Frank! Very kind of you. I'm so glad you had as much fun as me...we spent three lovely days around Puglia and Matera. And we had such interesting and funny conversation...thank you again! A big hug by your friend Gianluca from Puglia! Ciao!

Gianluca is a dream tour guide. He takes great pride in his work and sincerely wants to make sure you experience and see all that you want to while on tour with him. He was accommodating, helpful, friendly and kind. He's knowledgable about the history of the region and passionate about the region's art, cultural and architectural treasures. He made my trip in Puglia a spectacular experience. I will definitely be calling on Gianluca for future trips to Puglia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jenn! Very nice of you, I'll keep nice memories of the days spent together visiting Puglia and enjoying its local culture, food, etc. A big hug from your friend Gianluca and...greetings from Puglia!
Gianluca is very knowledgable of Puglia and provides the appropriate amount of detail. With our input he designed the tour which allowed us a wide range of experiences and was obliging and flexible to meet our needs at all times. Without Gianluca's expertise and experience our trip would not have been as successful or enjoyable as it was. Thank you for a great effort. Highly recommended to travellers in the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Peter! You're great people and great traveler, your feedback makes me very proud as tour guide and traveler as well. We spent three lovely days visiting Puglia and Matera...and had such interesting conversations about places to see, different cultures, food, etc. A big hug to you and your wife...you've a new good friend here. Greetings from Puglia!
If there were more stars, I would have rated Gianluca much higher. He made our visit to Italy so pleasant taking us all over the beautiful Puglia. Besides the three days fantastic tour, he also agreed to pick us up from Train in Bari and my daughter who came from US- My daughter missed her flight and Gianluca took us to our place 1/2 hour away from Bari and picked her up late at night. He also picked us up from Lecce to Bari, took our daughter early in the morning to her flight and us later. Thanks
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mark, and thanks to your family. You're wonderful people and great travelers, I had such a lovely time...I provided all transfers with pleasure, you deserve the best and I'm so glad you've experienced Puglia and Matera and its best. Thank you so much, a big hug to you all from you friend Gianluca. Greetings from Puglia!
