Excellent tour of Southern Italy!

All the arrangements were excellent. The travel element including the comfortable car when traveling solo and providing a very knowledgeable guide and driver...Bruno ....for just me,made it all the more interesting and informative. The hotels were good too... the only disappoint met was the weather, it rained incessantly for most of the week, alas! I will certainly recommend your company
