We had a wonderful tour of Alberobello with Lorenzo! I was a total nonce and added the tour to my calendar in the wrong timezone, so we were a half hour late...but Lorenzo was incredibly kind and waited for us to arrive to start the tour when he could've simply cancelled on us. I felt like I learned things on this tour that I wouldn't have heard of otherwise, and I found every moment thoroughly interesting. If you are heading to Alberobello, start your day with a tour with Lorenzo!

The tour itself was extremely informative and we loved the Trulli's, however we expected it to be a tour in English only and when we got there four of the women needed our guide to repeat everything in Italian as they were Spanish, so it was longer than we expected and became a bit boring. You should not mix languages.

Our guide (Milena) did a fantastic job in our walking tour of Alberobello. She helped bring the history of Alberobello and the trulli buildings to life! We highly recommend Milena as your guide for this area!

The tour was awesome. You have plenty of time to experience Matera and Alberobello. Tour guides were so knowledgeable, answered all questions. Highly recommend tour.

We had a great tour our Guide did an amazing job he was very informative.
