I wish I could give Giorgio more than 5 stars! It was a fantastic tour of Alberobello and Matera. He even stopped at some beautiful sights along the way. We learned a ton and the day went so fast. I cant speak highly enough about the quality of tour we received.

Matera and Alberobello are our top dream destinations, and Giorgio gave us a memorable experience! He is knowledgeable, super polite, friendly and kind. He took us into the real Trulli house, which is amazing! We had wonderful coffee and lunch in Matera. We learned so much from him about the cities. He drove carefully and tried his best to make our travel experience as smooth as possible. We would definitely recommend Giorgio as a guide. He's the best!

Giorgio is superb. He is informative, fun and a great conversationalist. We enjoyed every second of our tour and the 3 hours passed too quickly. Giogio covers many locations in Puglia and Basilicata, so you can arrange more than one tour with him when you are in these areas. I recommend him 100%.

We changed our plan and went to Alberobello with Giorgio. It was an experience we will never forget! He was a safe driver, fluent in English, an expert on the region's history. But, much more than that! He shared his passion for the Puglian area and the people by taking us off the beaten track. We ate lunch with a family who live in a Trulli home, sampled cheese and wine from a local family's farm and were surprised by singing and dancing in the street! Giorgio is the best! -mio Italian cugino!

On a scale of 1 to 5, we give Giorgio at least a 6! He was very, very knowledgeable and he was a ton of fun. We toured Matera, where we were staying, and Alberobello. Without Giorgio, the history of Matera would have been lost and the history is fascinating. Giorgio not only gave us the history of Aberobello, but brought us into the trulli homes, allowing us to engage with the town in a special way. We were in Europe for five weeks, using several guides. Hands down, Georgio was the best.

Rich information, Friendly, feel welcome, fun and brilliant man. Giorgio is now my most favorite guide. He will make time for me and you and be sure we understand the history. Even though he made the efforts for me because I'm deaf. I highly recommend him to be your guide. Thank you so so much Giorgio!! ����. They are so beautiful towns

Giorgio made our day in Bari and Alberabello truly special. He is an excellent tour guide who is obviously very much respected by the local people in both towns. We feel very lucky to have had this experience and we have learned a lot about the way of life of the people, the history of the old town of Bari and the Trulli houses and the families who live in them and, of course, the food and wine!! Giorgio imparted all this knowledge in a very relaxed and interesting way - he is a lovely guy!

Giorgio met us at our hotel and from there we walked the streets of Bari, thru the shopping area to the waterfront, the fish market and old town. We learned to make orecchiette, enjoyed local antipasti and gelato as he explained the history of the old town. It was a delightful afternoon learning about Bari's history. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Giorgio.

This was our third day touring with Giorgio. He spoke great English, was extremely knowledgeable, and was entertaining as well. Giorgio was easy going, he added personal touches to the tour with meeting locals and making stops at local markets and shops. He made it feel like it was our personal tour and we could adjust it accordingly. A big thank you to Giovanni and Giorgio (our two tour guides) for a fantastic trip thru the Puglia area.

Giorgio is a terrific guide. We spent a wonderful day with him showing us the beautiful sites and introducing us to many kind and generous people in the area. During the day we made a few stops to sample some of the local foods and were very impressed by the variety we found in Puglia. Giorgio is a kind and enthusiastic guide that is a great ambassador for Puglia. we look forward to returning and asking Giorgio to show us more of Puglia.

Highly recommend if like us, you don't have a car and pushed for time to see these amazing places in Puglia. Giorgio was a fantastic guide - knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating when we asked to include a last minute detour to Grotte di Castallana. He's well loved by locals and showed us a warm and inviting side to Alberobello (avoiding the mass tourists!) and a very engaging tour of Matera. Grazie mille again!

Giorgio is an excellent guide, very personable, very informative, very knowledgeable, and communicates very well in English. The tour itself was excellent. Although Alberobello was the highlight of the tour for me, the other towns were very interesting too, well worth visiting.

GIORGIO is the bomb! An amazing introduction to Bari with an amazing guide- Giorgio clearly loves his city and that joy is infectious. We met people, learned while strolling, tasted the best local dishes and mostly loved meeting him- and his beautiful baby and girlfriend! We have done many many tours like this and Giorgio is the best we have ever experienced!!!! Thank you. To anyone considering this trip- take it!!

This tour was AMAZING! It was my favorite day in Italy so far and I have been here for 12 days! Giorgio was incredible and so friendly! He also knew SO MUCH information about the area which made it extra special. The stops were delicious and we met lots of very nice locals at each of them. My favorite thing about this tour was that Giorgio felt like one of my friends. We all laughed together, drank together, and ate together. I will never ever forget this day. Thank you Giorgio! Indimenticabile!

We had the most amazing tour experience today around Puglia with Giorgio.We have done tours in other parts of the world but nothing like the incredible care and attention to detail that Giorgio showed us, especially to our two kids, Ollie and Milla.The incredible access we got and the warm receptions in and around Puglia were clear highlights and the best part of the experience was that we got to go to places where there were no tourists were so we felt like we got the ultimate authentic Puglia experience

We had a great tour with Giorgio in Matera. We learned so much more about the town than we could have possibly figured out walking around on our own. Giorgio was very knowledgeable and accomodating to our abilities and interests throughout the tour. We enjoyed it so much we tried to book him for another tour in another town but unfortunately he was already booked. Thank you Giorgio! Hope to come back for another tour soon!

Will highly recommend this tour. Giorgio is very knowledgeable, articulate and passionate about Bari. Insightful and hilarious in equal measure, Giorgio's engaging and earnest tour is an immersion into Bari that you must embark on. With the local anecdotes, stories and observations, Giorgio draws you into this world and you feel enriched by the knowledge and connected to the land. Apuglia comes alive in memorable detail on this tour.
