    You can choose a short or long tour of the old city and we chose the shorter one but we’re not disappointed. Our driver Olivio was incredibly skilful zooming round the tiny streets but he also had a great command of English and was very knowledgeable and passionate about his town. For a 21 year old he was a very impressive young man. The ride is a bit of a rollercoaster but we never felt unsafe. The tour was a very quick and an easy way to orientate yourself in this beautiful white town.

    Alberobello is a marvelous interesting place to visit if you have the opportunity to visit the region of Puglia. The people are so friendly and helpful. They truly love their city of Alberobello. The food in this area is beyond superb. The trulli are lovely and so is the history. Lovely little shops to visit and after dinner, the main town square is such a treat to stroll and have an after drink cocktail, espresso, or gelato. A MUST SEE IN ITALY!!! Further, the beaches are fantastic!!

    Amazing day tour of the 3 best parts of Puglia! Stefano acted as an entertaining & informative driver, friend, and even videographer for the end of my IG Alberobello reel haha He gives you the information while driving so you have the freedom to fully explore independently at these bustling and gorgeous destinations. I got tons of awesome pics and reels from these locations, but tripadvisor won't let me post any links to the reels of the locations we went to because they say it is somehow irrelevant and think I am trying to promote some type of secret business or something? lol Anyway hopefully I can at least upload some photos/screenshots from the reels below (it appears Tripadvisor is also blocking me from uploading any photos of the tour haha but still demanding I leave a review 🤔) Anyway, this is the only tour that will get you to all these destinations in one day, ideal if you don't have a ton of time in your itinerary to spend in Puglia.

    We had another great tour with Valeria, this time in Ostuni! She was so patient with us as we got lost on our way to finding her, (LOL) and then showed us around this beautiful city with great knowledge and passion. We didn’t want to leave once the tour was over, so Valeria showed us her favorite places to get dinner and drinks. What a magical time it was. Treat yourself to a tour with Valeria today! Buon viaggio!

    Beautiful city giving exactly what you would expect - lovely views. A town steeped in history and should be seen in conjunction with Cisternino and Alberobello for comparison.

    This was an outstanding trip, largely because of the courtesy, knowledge, and motivation of our guide, Gabriele. Once the trip was registered and paid for, he reached out to start planning the day. It could not have worked out better, from my standpoint.

    My adult son and I traveled in Italy for a few weeks, and wanted to see some of the sites outside of Bari, including the trulli houses. The customized tour caught my eye, as it allowed us to solve two problems with one solution: spending time in Apulia and getting to Matera, which was our next destination.

    Gabriele provided us with an excellent day trip. While he listened to my interests, he also brought forward suggestions of his own, which I encouraged, since he is from the area and a very knowledgeable source. We were picked up in Old Town Bari, and went to Polignano a Mare, Locorotondo, Alberobello, and ultimately Matera where he dropped us off. That is too much for a day trip, as it was nighttime when we got to Matera, however, it worked out perfectly for us.

    Gabriele was sensitive about balancing private time with shared time during the day, offering to leave us for lunch for an hour, for example. However, the opportunity to connect with someone who lives in the area and to learn about what modern day life is like for them, is a major benefit to a tour such as this. We had lunch together and talked about all sorts of things, including world affairs!

    There are so many ways in which our Apulia trip was better with this tour than it would have been otherwise, for instance if we rented a car. The knowledge of where to go for a special view, or the unique history of a place, or the conversation that Gabriele was able to have with proprietors of cafe’s and shops and restaurants, all of that made for a greatly enhanced experience.

    While this was a big investment for us, it was a highlight of our trip. Shared by four people, it would be a bargain. Even just for my son and myself, I could not be happier with the outcome. And now, we have a new friend in the Bari area. Grazie Gabriele!

    Our tour guides, Monique and Andrea, were wonderful. The daily activities and sites they took us to were amazing. The accommodations and food at Massaria San Martino were excellent. The restaurants our hosts selected had a variety of delicious food. Harvesting grapes followed by the organic wine tasting paired with local cuisine was an outstanding experience as was the mozzarella cheese experience and our add on cooking class. I am looking forward to see what this dynamic duo are going to put together next.

    We were very pleased with the customized itinerary of Apulia arranged for us! The guides were so knowledgeable of the history of the region and each brought their unique perspective and personal interests to the tour. They were such different personalities and so interesting and pleasant to spend time with. The drivers were also great. We felt personally safe and well cared for by our entire tour team. We so appreciate the effort Francesca put into packing in as much as possible from our wishlist. I think the only thing we realized the last day was how challenging it was to do Matera and Alberobello in one day. In retrospect, we could have skipped Cisterino and made 1 day of Martina Franca (which we especially loved!) and Alberobello and another day with more time in Matera. Even though we booked close to last minute in high season Tours of Puglia gave us a wonderful 4 days with fabulous guides and for that, we say, grazie mille! Also, terrific value for the price paid.

    This was a wonderful trip through beautiful countryside with visits to fascinating towns. Donatella, our guide, was knowledgeable and wonderful. An added benefit of this kind of tour is that the driver can drop you off and pick you up in the center of each historic town. If you drove by yourself you would have to park very far away in most cases.

    I highly recommend this trip for anyone interested in exploring a lovely and historic area of Italy. Gaetano is a fabulous guide with a heart as big as all outdoors. Your eyes will grow big when you see all the fabulous food, and I loved staying on my own little trulli.

    The last minute cancellation meant one of our four precious days in Puglia was no longer planned. We were left with no way to see the valley as we didn't have a rental car and were relying on this tour to show us the beautiful towns. Beware
