How does a personal tour look like?

On your arrival day at the airport or train station, we will pick you up and drive you to the accommodation. On the second day, your driver and your personal tourist guide will pick you up at the hotel in the morning and drive you to the places to visit together. In the afternoon you will be back at your accommodation, where you can enjoy some leisure time on your own, have a stroll in the town, or enjoy the quietness of the bucolic Puglian landscape if you are staying in a masseria. This is a personalized tour, which means that no one else will join you during the trips so that we can guarantee flexibility with timing, plans, and so on. Therefore, during the sightseeing and the cultural experiences you will still enjoy your independence and be free to decide what to do with your personal leisure time.
