What a fabulous day! I particularly enjoyed Polignano as our tour Guide Alexandra was fantastic! She was full of joy and enthusiasm and very friendly and informative. We stopped at various bars and tasted the local specialities , special coffee and snacks, which was unexpected and truly delicious. Poglinano itself is so beautiful! I will definitely stay there next time I visit Puglia. I strongly recommend a visit to this stunning place. Alberobello was very different but equally as beautiful in a different way. Our guide was very friendly and informative. A most unusual place with a fascinating history and feel about it. I thoroughly enjoyed this all day excursion, well organised and great value for money.

Brilliant. Beyond what I expected as a solo semi-retired unsophisticated traveller. ☺️ Not surprised though that the whole experience was so good, as Enzo was great from the start - with communication and ultimately delivering. My 3 co-travellers were so lovely also. All up:10! 😊🌱🎉🇮🇹

Grazia was a super guide. She took us round matera and then alberobello and explained to us history too. All very interesting. I really recommend as you need someone who knows the place well especially to roam in the narrow streets of matera.

We had a great time on this trip, it showed us enough to get a taste of both places and she did a great job of pointing out scenic and important points along the way. Would really recommend this tour.

Excellent. I never would have been able to visit all 4of those places in one day in my own. With a bit of history, directions and recommendations in each place. It was a really great day.
