What people are saying about Apulia

Very friendly guys who guide you and are helpful if it doesn't work out. Tip is to really wear water shoes or something. In the caves, but also on the beach to get into the water, there are pebbles and boulders. You slip easily. Highly recommended!

Experience made with my two girls, Polignano from the sea is an even more beautiful sight! The guides are also very attentive to the needs of the smallest ones. Highly recommended

Enjoyable trip to see the caves at Polignano. A little more time to master standing up would have been useful (especially for us older ones!).

A fun and interesting activity Some difficulties in finding your balance on the wavelets, but a striking spectacle in the caves!

Mega experience, was great fun 3000 times better than with a boat.
