Knowledgeable and informative guide

The guide continued with the tour even though I was the only tourist to show. I respect the dedication. The guide gave a great account of the history of the area & the buildings. She knew all sorts of interesting idiosyncrasies. Great tour. I felt I had a good grasp of Lecce by the time she was done.

Fantastic guide to a beautiful city.

Antonella was fantastic- friendly, interesting and super-knowledgeable and she made our tour a highlight of our trip. The tour went ahead even though there were only two of us. Lecce is a beautiful city with an amazing history and Antonella covered the history brilliantly and dealt with our questions clearly and confidently. We have had some brilliant such tours of many cities and this was as good as any of them. Thank you .

Fantastic Tour!

My Tour Guide was spectacular! As we walked down the streets of Lecce, she brought so many aspects of its history and pivotal moments to life. She was intentional, thorough and passionate with her explanations and detail! I now feel like I’ve truly experienced Lecce - being educated about so much of its history. Thank you!
