There is a rain forefast on my booked date and i appreciate about choices (other days)offered that would fit in my schedule. Hassle-free communication esp on pick-up, good recommendations in each places covered on the tour, top transport (safety/music). Enzo did great throughout the tour, definitely not a "hectic type" of guide which is a good thing as you wont feel any rush on the tour. Yes there are specific time-frame in each places but he was clear and even shared location for you to return to meeting/pick up point on time.

Enzo is a great guide! He talks with a lot of passion about his native land and knows a lot about the area. He has original ideas about places he wouldn't normally go to. Furthermore, he is punctual, flexible and responds immediately to messages. He is a pleasant conversationalist with a lot of humor. I recommend the tour with Enzo 100%. I enjoyed it. Thank you again Enzo!!

This is the best option if you want to see both Alberobello and Matera in one day. Enzo also suggested we made a stop at Polignano a Mare which was absolutely worth it. Altogether it was an amazing experience with the nicest guide possible (good soundtrack as well). Highly recommend.

Enzo was the best! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area. Enzo was very knowledgeable and timely and made our trip so memorable. Thank you Enzo - looking forward to a return trip!

Exciting, very enjoyable and overall a great day sightseeing. Enzo’s recommendations for the places visited, the restaurant for lunch and his insights as we travelled were all excellent. Thank you Enzo!
