Despite the August heat, Alessandro was always happy to show me the beautiful area of Puglia. I feel very fortunate to have visited with a private, very knowledgeable guide. What beautiful cities with incredible histories. I really enjoyed the stories he told that you wouldn't read about in a tour book. Thanks for a very memorable experience Alessandro!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to you for such a amazing days spent together: you are such a nice person. All the best. A big hug from Campomarino di Maruggio (along the west/ionian coast of Puglia where I'm enjoing the deserved vacation).

Our first foray out of Brindisi was to a millennial olive tree grove where we thought of those farmers of 1,000 years ago. Soon we were in Ostuni where we discovered Babbo Natale, an annual Father Christmas bicycle ride just forming in the town square, with a hundred costumed Santas, all smiling and waving. Today's adventures included touring an olive oil mill and tasting. Alessandro provided insight into art and church history via the ancient frescos in each town. His knowledge base is quite impressive.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ron and Wilda, i'm glad you enjoied the tour ... and the parare of bikers dressed like Santa Calus was so funny :-)

My family and I had a WONDERFUL day with Alessandro! We felt like we were traveling with our long lost cousin. He customized the tour exactly how we wanted and we had a fantastic time. I definitely recommend doing some sort of food tasting--that was one of the best meals we had on our entire trip. If I could give more stars I would :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Danielle, me too I enjoied a lot the day. It's so easy to work with you: you are such a well traveller people and you know what you like. A big hug to all your wonderful family from your long lost cousin :-)

Allessandro is extremely personable and informative. We enjoyed our day in Ostuni, and would definitely recommend a private tour over the group tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Trulie, I'm glad you enjoied the tour and you noticed the difference among a private tailor made tour with a stardardize one. I hope to meet you in the next future to show some other place in Puglia.
Great guide, we had a very nice day in Ostuni. Did his best to shows us as mach as possible in the short amount of time we had. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Corina, thanks for your comment and rating. I enjoyed the time spent with your and yoru friends. It's a shame your cruise docked only for a few hours ... it's a good chance to come back and to spend some days in Puglia. I hope to meet you in the next future.
