- KKimKeninWritten on May 5, 20185.0 - ExcellentThis was a wonderful trip. We visited many, many historic sites and towns, including Alberobello and it’s Trulli houses, Matera and the cave dwelling areas, the Castellana caves, old olive groves, and much more. We had a wine tasting and tour through a beautiful old winery, we walked the coast along Otranto and stopped for a picnic. We had a fun (and funny) pasta making lesson and a delicious dinner in that same restaurant. Overall, the food was excellent. Our small group of 7 or 8, plus our guide Giuseppi and our guide in training, Agatha, made it easy to get to know everyone. Giuseppi was very knowledgeable, friendly, and spoke excellent English. We feel that we now have a really good sense of Puglia. We highly recommend this trip.Show detailed ratings
