Alessandro is very knowledgeable about the area and gave a very insightful and thoughtful tour. He met us at the agreed time and place. We were traveling with a 3 year old and a 1 year old. He was extremely helpful and good with the children. Their safety was clearly a priority to him and we very much appreciate that. Our group of 8 adults on this tour highly recommend Alessandro.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Charles and Rebecca, I'm happy you manage to enjoy the tour and to shot some picture. Me too I'm a traveller and a father and I know what means travelling with 2 small children :-) By the way, they are so cute. A big hug to you and your wonderful family.
Alessandro was a great tour guide He was able to do the tour for us at short notice. He picked us up and drop us off at our hotel. His knowledge gave us a great insight to the people, town and it's history. We were able to interact with the shop and home owners which also good to learn more about the town. I would recommend Alessandro to anyone wanting to do a tour of the Bari region
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm happy you enjoied the tour and to interact with local people: you such a friendly and easy going persons. A big hug from Puglia.

Alessandro was very considerate in accommodating our requests for our tour to Alberobello and surrounding area, and helpful in making the most of the time available to us, including identifying train links. He was informative, and we thoroughly enjoyed his company and the tour. Alessandro is very personable and has a good sense of humour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pauline and David, it's has been a pleasure to spend a few hours with you. Mee to I enjoied a lot your company ... and thanks for the sense of humour: it's such a nice compliment from an English couple as it's so important for you.
Sr Alessandro talked a lot but no courtesies of opening car doors etc. We were two women in late 70 years one with walking difficulties. took another route back and demanded €140/160 extra on return to Palace Hotel. This is not acceptable policy as we were not asked if we wished to pay more for this tour. Upsetting behaviour from Sr Alessandro who has spoiled our long awaited visit to Alberobello.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: honestly I was expecting from you a message of apology confirming the transfer and the extra hours weren’t included and telling me you were going to send me the balance. I think is fair a total amount (for 2 people) of 220 eur for a 6 hour tour with 150 km of transfer included. I didn't help you with the doors as your sister, from the first moment, has helped you to lift your leg to enter in the car. I thought It was better to pick up and drop off you many times in order to save you from the steps.

Our guide Alessandro was excellent; passionate about the history and beauty of Alberobello and surrounding area. Our visit was greatly enhanced by his personal charm and knowledge of the city. His English is very good. I would recommend Alessandro!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot. I really enjoied your company and I hope to meet you in the next future to show some other destinations of Puglia region (i.e. Lecce and Salento area, the wine areas of Primitivo di Manduria and Negramaro, etc.)
We booked Alessandro for a full day tour to visit Ostuni and Alberobello. Alessandro is a very knowledgeable guide. He knows almost every single big and small streets in the cities, and he knows which is the best restaurant for coffee and snacks. He told us a lot of history about two cities as well as the whole area of Apulia. I will no doubt to book Alessandro again next time if I am visiting Apulia. Thanks Alessandro.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I suppose you come back to Toronto right now. Thanks a lot Lawrence for your feedback and I'm glad you liked Ostuni, Locorotondo and Alberobello. I hope I'll be able to show you some other place in Apulia in the next future. Say hallo to all your family.

We had a wonderful tour with Alessandro. He was waiting for us on the pier when our ship docked, showed us the less 'touristy' streets of Alberobello and the uncrowded villages of Locorotondo and Martina Franca, took us to a quaint trattoria for lunch, and got us back to the ship with time to spare. Thank You, Alessandro, for a perfect day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks for your comment. i'm glad you enjoyed the tour. it has been a pleasure to meet you. i hope i'll see you in the next future (lecce is wonderfull too and the salento area is really interesting).
Guy BestUnited States
Alessandro is very knowledgable and friendly guide. His 8-hour tour of Alberobello and surrounding towns was excellent. He was prompt when meeting us at our cruise ship and his commentary gave us an understanding of the history and culture of the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Guy and friends, it has been a pleasure to meet you and I enjoyed the time spent with you. A big hug and I hope to meet you again in the next future.
