Alessandro was an excellent guide, we could not have been happier. We did a modified Alberobello-Monopoli-Polignano a Mare half day excursion, which was great. He was very flexible on setting up the itinerary and timing, incredibly knowledgeable, and is very good at sharing what is so special about this unique corner of Italy. We could not recommend Alessandro more highly!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Greg for your nice feedback. I hope to share again with you some more stunning places in Puglia.
Our family really enjoyed our tour of Monopoli, Polignano a Mare, Alberobello and Grotto de Castellano with Alessandro. I think he showed us sights that we would not have normally seen on our own and he shared some interesting information and insights about the area. The place he suggested for lunch (Pescaria in Polignano a Mare) was fantastic as well as his other recommendations in Monopoli. Thank you, Alessandro!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rouella, thanks to your for your kind rating and feeback. I'm glad you enjoed the tour and the culinary experience: their gourmet fish sandwich are so tasty and unique. I hope to meet you again in the next future to show some other place in this wonderfull region.
We had a very enjoyable tour with Alessandro during our trip to Puglia in June. Alessandro was very pleasant and knowledgeable. A great source of cultural and historical information. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your nice rating and feedback. I hope to meet you and your family again in the next future: there are such a wonderfull places to visit in Puglia.
It was a perfect tour for our group. Alessandro showed us all the beautiful places of Alberobelo and gave us interesting information. Thank you for the great experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gudrun, thanks to you for choosing me for you cruise excursion (by the way, in a while I'll be in the same cruise ship ... me and my family deserve a holiday sometime :-) A big hug to you and your friends and I hope to see you again in the next future (in 2017 there will be Brindisi as port but with MSC cruises; from there it's possible to visit Lecce and some other interesting places)
Marcia KordaUnited States
Alessandro was an excellent guide and driver for our visit to Alberobello and Polignano a Mare. In Polignano he took us to a cafe where we had an amazingly fresh seafood lunch as well as to the beautiful rocky cliff overlooks that the city is so well known for. In Alberobello we saw many Trulli houses and visited one of his friends who opens their home to visitors so we could see how people live and furnish a round Trulli home. We had an amazing time! Thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marcia, thanks for your feedback. I'm happy you enjoied the seafood lunch and to interact with my friends of the trulli in Alberobello.
Sherry WadeUnited States
Alessandro showed us the interesting and picturesque village of Alberello in a comprehensive walking tour. He took us to a wonderful meat and cheese shop for lunch so we could enjoy the local products including the wine.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sherry, thanks for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoied the tour even if it was a short one because of the cruise. Please say hallo to your travel companions.
Raul RiquelmeWESTON, FLORIDA, United States
We traveled with Alessandro from Bari to Alberobello in August 2015, it was a very enjoyable trip. We never felt that Alessandro was offering a service, really like a family trip. Allesandro is very friendly, he showed us the best of Alberobello and was always very aware of my two young children and us. Actually more than a guide was a friend. Alberobello is a beautiful city, really a perfect picture of Italy. 100% recommend traveling to Alberobello and do it with a professional guide as Alessandro.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Raul, thanks a lots for your nice words. Me too I felt really at easy with you and your family ... probably because you're such a easy going people and because I love children and I imagine my boys like yours in a couple of years :-) A big hug to your wonderfull family

Andrew VerbUnited States
Alessandro was a wonderful find. We booked him last minute and he put together a really unique tour for us. He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the area. I I highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrew, it has been a pleasure to be your tourist guide as you knew what you want and it has been easy to give you the best suggestions for a tour personalized on your needs.
Alessandro is such a good guide, so knowledgeable and thoughtful. He gave us so much history in an interesting way, adding to the pleasure of our visit to Alberobello. All 4 of us certainly recommend him to anyone in that area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Christine, I'm happy you appreciated the tour of Alberobello, my tourist guide services and my way of explaining Apulian history and culture. I relaly enjoied the few hours spent with you. I hope to meet you and your travel companion again in the next future.
Absolutely loved Alberobello!! The trulli were spectacular; the town was like a page from a fairy tale, you would almost expect a leprechaun to walk out the door in front of you! Alessandro was very knowledgeable, explaining the history of the area. A quick visit to Polignano completed our day! My only regret is that we didn't have more time!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm still laughing thninking about the immaginary scene of a leprechaun walking in Alberobello: your described very well the atmosphere you can find in Alberobello. I hope to meet you soon for your next cruise (actually there is Bari but also Brindisi and Gallipoli as cruise ports) or for a long stay in Puglia region. It's been a pleasure to spend a few hours with you and your travel companions.
