Very interesting and pleasant way of visiting Lecce. For a group of 6 persons we rented three rickshaws with guide. The guides were very enthusiastic and explained everything in English. We laughed much. The tour lasted 1,5 hour and we saw the highlights of Lecce. We also stopped for a coffee which was a treat of the company. Afterwards they sent us pictures. Everything was perfect. We enjoyed every minute! Thank you.

Miriam was an excellent and friendly guide. Upon our arrival our reservation with Get Your Guide had not been passed on to the office. But the people of Velo Service still arranged it so we could have our tour. Really nice people and so many interesting facts about the beautiful town of Lecce!

It was a truly lovely experience being ridden round Lecce and getting an excellent timescaled history briefing at every stop . The guide Miriam was really lovely company and helped us with our extremely little knowledge of the Italian language and spoke clearly in excellent English . We felt extremely safe and comfortable with Miriam from start to finish . We both had the loveliest time this afternoon and can highly recommend others doing this and can certainly highly recommend Miriam as a guide .
