Angela hosted a wine tasting for a group of 19 of us and did a tremendous job. Witty, insightful and warm, she made the wine tasting relaxed, informative and fun. We learned a lot and had a good time in the process. Afterward I asked her about finding a special wine for my brother's birthday - once we agreed on a budget, she personally went to the winery and purchased 2 wonderful bottles that I'm sure would have been impossible for me to find on my own. And then she personally delivered these to our hotel. Over the top service from her and experience for us.

Angela provided a wine tasting event for our group at the masseria at which we were staying. Her flawless English, her delightful sense of humor, her knowledge about the wines, and her willingness to answer basic questions from those of us with (far!) less knowledge all combined to make the program a real pleasure. When we dined afterwards, we knew just what regional wines to seek out at our restaurant!

Andrea provided us with a great trip and took great care of us. We asked him to provide us with a very customized tour -- some self-guilded biking, some automobile touring -- and he gave us just what we wanted. He took our bags from place to place, even when had the car. The biking was enhanced by the GPS he provided. He also let us borrow a separate GPS for the days we were in the car. Each of the hotels was great. Highly recommended.

Superb hotels, many with ocean views; scrumptious pasta, seafood and wine at reasonable prices; relatively quiet roads with unexpectedly polite Italian drivers; and interesting conversations with locals --- all thanks to the great planning of our self-guided bike tour by Andrea and Angela of Path. A private cooking class at a small trattoria in Ostuni and wine tasting with Angela in Otranto were delightful additions. When a derailed train threatened one of our touring days, Andrea personally escorted us on a revised path to make sure we didn't miss anything important. Angela and Andrea are knowledgable and responsible with a good sense of humor and were able to adjust on the fly as needed. Their unique background in Puglia let us experience the best of the area. Biking was easy to moderate and the right amount for us, even if a bit hot. Many thanks to Path for a great vacation!

I had a wonderful Vespa trip with Path just before Easter!:). I turned up totally stressed & left completely refreshed! Path organised a great itinery and opened the rich world of Puglia for me, including its culture, history & natural beauty:). Local food and wine was always fabulous!:) Can't wait to go back & so fun to ride a Vespa like a proper Italian!:) Andrea x
