We paid a lot more than we usually do for this tour and enjoyed the tour. Our guide Francesco is very knowledgeable about the culture, history and art of the area. We saw amazing churches mostly and had some walks around the 4 cities/towns we stopped at. He included a visit to a town where his family spends most of the summer and heard many stories that were amusing and personal about the town. We treated him to lunch at a restaurant which served wonderful fish. The only down side is that for the money we spent on this tour, the car should have been more upgraded. There was a driver and a guide up front and us in back. We were disappointed with the lack of comfort but the driver did perform well.We were cramped into a economy size car and it was often hard to see out the windows due the smaller size of the car and the windows.
Good tour, the guide Anita has a very good knowledgeable of the history of the Salento. The cost oc €169 each was a little steep but we figured it was worth it in the end as driving yourself during this busy time would be quite stressful.
