I had the best time in Puglia, with Monique and Andrea, our wonderful hosts at Travel Puglia. Fantastic and fun. Our stay at Masseria San Martino was very special with attention to detail, friendly staff and great breakfasts. Each day we took to the road to visit and learn about the many remarkable sites throughout Puglia. So amazing. There would be personal time in the afternoon, for wandering through shops or relaxing with a coffee. Then back to Masseria for a quick dip in the pool or an aperitif before going out to dinner in a yet another great restaurant. I loved it, and will be back for the third time!

I have just returned from spending a magical week in Puglia with friends organized by Travel Puglia. Everything about the carefully crafted itinerary, accommodation, food and the hands-on experiential elements exceeded my expectations. This can be attributed to Monique and Andrea, our incredible hosts and guides who, shared their passion and expertise of all things Puglia with us, ensuring that we could experience and savor this unique part of Italy to its fullest. They looked after every detail, ensuring that our time included the important cultural and historical components, independent time and surprises along the way. Monique and Andrea were warm, welcoming, professional and lots of fun. I look forward to returning to Italy to travel “beyond Puglia”.

Puglia is a region I had heard of for years and am so sorry I didn’t visit sooner. there is so much to see and the owner/guide is the best at combining popular destinations, diverse options and individual choices. Monique included so many of the most popular and interesting sites and yet made sure my requests were met. She helped explain traditions, “food eccentricities”, language differences, hired the best city/region guides to get a full, true picture of the history and culture of the region. And such a great personality! She is the BEST!!

We booked this tour at the last minute and were so lucky Monique and Andrea could accommodate us. Puglia exceeded our expectations!
From fortified seaside towns like Monopoli, Otrano and Polignano a Mare, to beautiful baroque Lecce and stunning Ostuni. From ancient Matera with its rambling streets of the Sassi to whimsical Alberobello with its conical roofed Trullis, Puglia was a visual adventure.
The accommodation at San Martino Masseria was elegant and very comfortable. The owners were very welcoming and most hospitable.
The food and wines of Puglia were an unexpected highlight of the trip. The freshest of vegetables, handmade pastas and breads, mozzarella and the divine burrata. Fruity whites and full bodied Primitivo red wines enhanced the gourmet experience.
Monique and Andrea educated us in the art of mid morning espressos (the Appulian way with almond syrup over ice), and afternoon aperitivos. They shared their knowledge of and passion for this ‘less travelled’ region of Italy. They were well organised and professional yet warm and friendly. We had a fabulous week and would not hesitate to recommend Travel Puglia to our friends and family.
Hoping Monique and Andrea might offer some travel beyond Puglia in the future.

Our tour guides, Monique and Andrea, were wonderful. The daily activities and sites they took us to were amazing. The accommodations and food at Massaria San Martino were excellent. The restaurants our hosts selected had a variety of delicious food. Harvesting grapes followed by the organic wine tasting paired with local cuisine was an outstanding experience as was the mozzarella cheese experience and our add on cooking class. I am looking forward to see what this dynamic duo are going to put together next.

Travel Puglia is a great way to explore this area of Italy.Monique and Andrea are tremendous hosts and provide a comprehensive overview of the region. The meals provided are first rate and the wine good and plentiful. Our accomodation was most comfortable and the owners very obliging. All in all we had a tremendous week in a beautiful part of Italy.

Having travelled with Tours of Tuscany back in 2014, we knew (there were 3 ladies) that Monique would provide us with an excellent experience and she and Andrea did just that. Not only did we see the many villages of Puglia, we got to harvest grapes, make mozzarella cheese balls, some participated in a cooking class while others whiles away their time at the beach. Each village we visited offered something unique and the food…don’t get me started. Their restaurant choices were outstanding along with the menu. Our accommodation at the Masseria San Martino provided us with a lovely setting and excellent hostess in Teresa. I really can’t say enough about our trip..truly a wonderful experience (somehow we got the nickname the 3 Charlies from Andrea..what fun). We await the next offering by this fabulous duo.

We went to Italy’s Amalfi Coast for a family wedding and fell in love. Our itinerary was booked through Travel Puglia and we couldn’t have been more pleased. Monique and Andrea were incredibly intuitive guides on so many levels. The tours that were booked were well planned and exciting. Their mission was to provide an experience with a uniquely personal touch…they totally succeeded. Because of our experience we fell love with Italy and definitely plan to go back.
