    2.0 - Rather poor

    The tour guide was very knowledgeable . Saw puglia as an introduction but thought it was an expensive tour for what you got .. dissatisfied with only breakfast included in the meals for whole week , the accommodation was disgusting and not always in the center of town . Don’t know where my money went ? Won’t do an exodus tour again ..
    Exodus Travels commented on this review
    We would like to thank Marilena for her feedback, although we regret that she did not enjoy her tour in Puglia and that it did not meet her expectations. We are sorry that she was disappointed with the accommodation; the hotels used on the trip are all of a good standard and we have not received feedback of this nature in the past, nonetheless, we will keep a close eye on feedback relating to the accommodation in the future. We feel it is worth mentioning that on Exodus’ website, clients have given this tour an average of 4.8 stars out of a possible 5 (on the date of publishing) and we feel this is reassuring, however we are genuinely sorry that Marilena’s experience was not so positive.

    5.0 - Excellent

    This 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.
