Beautiful and exciting experience of the Polignano caves !! Our guides (one who spoke Italian and the other English) perfectly explained everything we were visiting !! Aperitif with taralli and a glass of bubbles appreciated !! Finally, a nice dive off the coast away from the chaos of the coast !! I would have stayed on that beard all day !!

I never had a food tour before but love bike tours. The combination was great! Teresa was energetic, knowledgeable and very accommodating! The food was delicious! The tour was just perfect for us. So much better visiting on bikes than walking in the heat. Strongly recommend!!

Very nice discovery. We loved the visit and especially the very warm welcome from our guide and his family. Tasting at the top, we were able to taste many things from the farm, mozzarella, burratta, ricotta, Italian ham, pear etc.

Lots of detailed information about the historical sights, nice guide, nice ending with local coffee and cake.

Super crew in maneuvers with the boat, prepared and very nice. Braviiiiiiiiiii !!!!!!!!!
