We only had a very short timeframe, so this tour was perfect for us. Nicola was an amazing guide who educated us on the different nuances of each area and showed us a little of everyday life in Alberobello by meeting locals and tasting Olive Oil and local snacks. Although a short time turnaround, we had a wonderful experience with Nicola. Thank you.

We loved our dinner!!! Lucrezia and her husband were so warm and welcoming. She was extremely understanding about a location mix up on my part which caused us to be late. All the food was spectacular and I'm so excited to practice what she taught me and make orecchiette for my friends once I'm home. Thank you Lucrezia!

Lucrezia and Stefanos were amazing hosts and made us feel like family. The best thing we did in all of Italy’s 3 week holiday. Lucrezia is an amazing chef and such a lovely person. Some of the best people we’ve ever met.

Super fun tour and original way to see a city differently, interesting stories about the trulli, wine and olive oil. Definitely don't forget the donkeys 🥰, in short, a great experience.

We had a great time riding through the countryside on the e-bikes. Beautiful farmland speckled with Trullis!
