People tend to make these trips and we were spoiled with two of the best! Secondly we really enjoyed the food. I can definitely say I enjoyed the best Pesto pasta of my life. Courtesy of Emilio. However the absolute stand out for us was Michael the legend! The creme de la ..."

    I travelled in July 2019 with my wife . This was an exceptional tour and it went far beyond all expectations I had before! We were accommodated in a wonderful Masseria (farmhouse) few kilometers away from Lecce, owned by a lovely couple Clara and Emilio.... Read more

    A culinary experience should focus on food. One winery visit, although good was insufficient to qualify as a focus on food & wine. A single glass of wine only included with dinner. For $600 per day per couple this was not value for money. The family is... Read more

    Soleto Travel commented on this review
    kind customers, First of all, thank you for your review, we regret that your experience during the tour did not meet your expectations, although fortunately this tour has received practically unanimous positive feedback over the years, we realize and seriously consider your non-positive feedback. We are sorry that some things were not highlighted during the tour, given the friendly and personal approach we give to this product we would certainly have tried to satisfy your requests, given the positive feedback received from your traveling companions on this tour , However, I must point out that the tour, in addition to the tasting and visit of the winery, also included a cooking class, an olive oil tasting visit and explanation of the procedure used for its production, dinner in a traditional pizzeria as per itinerary, the dinners at the farm with chef Emilio and the possibility to customize the menu and the dishes, to order in the morning what you want to eat for dinner, always with fresh, organic local products, and this is an added value for us on this tour . Unfortunately we regret that you were our customers during the week of August 15th, when the pasta factory and the mozzarella factory were closed due to the summer holidays, unfortunately this is the worst week of the year, however we have made up for this by offering aperitif, traditional ice cream tasting , and visit to an artisan chocolate factory. Regarding the value of the tour, considering that it is a private tour, with private trips, long distances to be covered, the quality and quantity of the food offered, and the richness of the experiences offered also and often not on the itinerary, we think it is correct . We are sorry, however, that the freebies that were offered during your stay, as well as the free transfer from Mtera to Bari have not been mentioned, sometimes even reducing our profit, but always aiming at customer satisfaction,this is our policy and that of the people who work with us. Best Regards Omar Gubernati Director Soleto Travel ltd
