The activity is well organized with private driver for two days and Michele was excellent friendly punctual and a third day in which he changes driver and there I don't comment on the delay and the lack of affability. The visits of the cities are guided and the guides are all very well prepared. The hotels are first choice except for the overnight stay in the trulli, which is nice but I found a poor assistance service in the wifi not working and in the breakfast to be had at the bar. Also, even though there is a kettle, the receptionist says we have to bring tea from home ... no comment. The high price wants to justify the private tour which is advertised for small groups. Chosen for last minute needs it is a tour too expensive for the service it offers
