How can I book a private trip?

Depending on your requests and on when and how long you are willing to visit Puglia, we will put together a personalized tour. We will send you our suggestions and prepare a personalized itinerary to let you experience the best of
southern Italy. We will recommend where to stay and what to see using our deep knowledge of the region and local culture.
To book a private tour is very easy. After we receive your email, we will send you back a quote based on your requests and preferences. If interested, let us know and we can answer via email or arrange a Skype call in order to answer all your questions.

Who will guide and drive me in Puglia?

One of our team member and a professional chauffeur will drive and guide you to the beautiful spots and let you discover the best itineraries and any tour or experience you could wish for.  We are experienced travel guides and will be glad to help you discover the heel of the italian boot.

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.

Who is a private tour for?

It doesn’t matter how big your group is, whether you are a solo traveler, a couple, a family, or a small group of friends. We will be the ones that you can trust to plan a tour of Puglia.

What does a private tour include?

On a private guided tour of Puglia, you will have a personal driver and guide at your disposal. We can provide to you the best accommodation according to your budget and preferences. Besides our day trips we can offer whatever you might be interested in, for example we can drive you to the best beaches in southern Italy or go together to a streed food market. In essence, a private trip of Puglia includes whatever you might need and whatever a local Pugliese like us might suggest to you in order to have an insider knowledge of this land.

How does it work?

You can a have a quick look at our range of trips and activities and figure out what to do while in Puglia. Just tell us when and how are you coming to Italy. If by plane at the airport of Bari or Brindisi or maybe by train. Tell us what your interests are.

Do you prefer food tours rather than cultural tours? Are you into history or food traditions? Would you prefer a stay in the countryside such as a “masseria” (a XVIII century farmhouse for example) rather than a hotel in a small quaint hilltop town such as Ostuni? What about an italian coastal town close to the best beaches in Puglia? Are you looking for luxury 5-star accommodations or small and cozy hotels?

Our tailor-made tour suits best your individual needs and expectations, timeframe, and budget. We advise you, and you decide.
