Our day trip was great, we were brought to alberobello in a very comfortable minivan with AC. Our driver was Conny. The journey there and back was great. The walking tour in alberobello was great. Our guide was Giusy, she brought us through alberobello and explained the history of the trullis. We got to visit the garden of a resident who owned a trulli, which was a nice touch. We visited the trulli church, where giusy explained the frescos, all before heading to a local shop to taste olive oil and taralli. We ended up buying a few things there too! We had about an hour of free time to wander alberobello on our own, before being picked up and brought back to matera. Thank you for the great trip!

Milena was very thoughtful to text us the night before our tour to suggest that we start a bit earlier to miss the crowds and the heat of the day! We took great photos and had the town to ourselves.

I loved Milena. She was very acknowledgable abour every single fact in Alberobello. She took us to places that were not crowded and gave a lot of insights and reccomendations.

Visiting Alberobello in the company of a guide allows you to optimize your time and better understand the particularity of the place.

Super fun to eat locally and completely at home with a local resident. really special
