My wife and I are from New York. We took a cruise in the Mediterranean and one of our stops was at Bari in Puglia. 10 Days before our arrival, we contacted Antonella Mele to arrange an exciting day for us. She suggested a tour through wine country at Alberobella via E-Bike. That's right- an electric bike. Antonella picked us up at the cruise port in Bari, and gave us a clear and fun English explanation of this sites during our one hour journey to vineyard country. Once there, our E-Bikes were waiting for us. My wife and I, Antonella, and the bike guide, set out on a 3 hour tour of the area via bike. We rode through pathways not accessible by cars through vineyards smelling the grapes and olives. It was beautiful, serene, and special. Along the entire journey, Antonella explained the Truli houses and made it so much fun!! Once done, she walked us through town at Alberobella, sat with us at a cafe, and then headed back to the ship. Perfectly organized, safe, and definitely an experience to remember.

Antonella was our tour guide for 3 days in Puglia. She certainly knew Puglia well and how to present its attractions in an interesting way. Her English was faultless. She was always punctual and no matter where we were she seemed to know where the nearest pharmacy or post office was situated. She really helped make our stay in Puglia memorable

Antonella has such a deep knowledge of the Puglia region that she can breathe life into its history in a matter of moments. (Her explanation of the taranta dance that once afflicted young women was marvelous!) And she knows all the ins and outs that aren't in the guide books--the *real* place in Polignano to get the best gelato, or the restaurant tucked off the beaten track in Alberobello that isn't a tourist trap. Add to that her charm, and you've got the best of Puglia in one package. I can't recommend As Soon As Puglia's services highly enough.

Antonella from As Soon as Puglia made Puglia come alive before our eyes. Her stories and descriptions are captivating, and her love and passion for Puglia are obvious, and infectious. What's more, is that Antonella made it so much FUN! She has a natural wit and sense of humor that translates beautifully in her touring. You honestly feel like you are traveling with a charming friend who just happens to know fascinating information about Italy. What could be better!
