Very kind operators. We found the tour canceled due to not reaching the number of people. Ready to find an alternative for two, problem solved in a very short time, we had driver, guide and entrance to Castel del Monte. Already tried in the past, Get Your Guide is confirmed as a guarantee for the tour operator circuit to refer to.

The castle was massive and quite interesting when we learned about all the symbolism in decoration and such. The guide was well-informed and when we got to the town of Trani, he made sure that we found a great place to eat lunch and knew where to meet our driver before leaving our presence.
