Green Italy were outstanding in their organisation and attention to detail. The tailor made tour for a group of 6 friends, with particular interest in wine tasting and architecture, exceeded our expectations We highly recommend this organisation

We arranged two separate tours with Green Italy, one with Giovanni the other with Valantina. Both tours were fantastic and both guides very informative, friendly and accommodating. Would thoroughly recommend and would use them again should we ever return to Puglia. Anyone visiting the area should not miss out on Matera, truly magical and amazing and you should take Valantina as she knows a great restaurant to have lunch (See photo).

If I could rate higher I would. What a FANTASTIC experience and the highlight to my Puglia vacation. Gracious hosts at an authentic working farm. Very well organized and you feel as though you are learning/dining with family. Do not hesitate to book this experience. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend! Best meal I’ve ever had in any part of Italy! Thank you to Giovanni and Francesca for making all of this possible!

We cannot recommend Giovanni and his team enough for their incredible on our recent trip to Puglia. Ostuni and surrounding areas can be difficult to navigate at times but Gio and his team make it a lot easier. We were in town for a wedding so needed transport at some awkward times but this was never too much trouble. We had a great full day Salento Wine Tour with Valentina which we would highly recommend if you are looking to explore different areas of Puglia and sample he local wines. Our lunch in Gallipoli was one of the best meals we have had - unbelievably fresh local Seafood.

This was one of the BEST EVER tours we've done on all of Travels...!!!! Valentina was the most AMAZING Local Advisor and made this magical trip even more amazing....She has so much knowledge of the region and has the best personality. We had such a laugh on this tour and as it was just me and my husband with Valentina it made the day such good fun as it felt like 3 friends on a day out...!!! We got to visit Cisternino which has amazing views and a cute little square, Alberobello where we walked through the Trulli and visited the Trulli Church which was just as amazing as we'd hoped it would be. We also visited Polignano a Mare where we had the "caffè speciale" (Gelato, a Secret Liquor and Lemon Rind - Just try it You'll Love It) and a Gelato of course..!! We had a walk around and a watch the crazy people jumping from the rocks into the Sea which was a lovely end to our day trip. Valentina also gave us some recommendations on what to do in a remaining few days in Puglia so we also got to visit Monopoli and sample a delicious Octopus burger. Thanks so much Valentina for also taking photos throughout the day of us and sending them to Gino , you're the Best....!!!! (Carrie-Anne & Gino)
