Tours/excursions in Puglia region

Looking for tours or coach tours or escorted tours in the Puglia region between December and January months. Any suggestions? Or where to find? Thankyou Ing55

1. Re: Tours/excursions in Puglia region

I'd be surprised if there were any locally-organised bus tours at that time, as there wouldn't be a market for them. I would expect day trips like this one getyourguide.com/bari-l721/… to be running only in the summer.

Of course foreign tour operators may have organised groups going to Puglia then, normally starting from the countries they are based in - but out of curiosity I checked the French companies I use and they don't do them either at that time of year. If you want one starting from a particular (e.g. English-speaking) country, you would have to look at brochures of British, Irish etc. companies, but again, this one is May-October: http://www.newmarketholidays.co.uk/Details.asp?dlc=18336&hps=5&fNPC=NMP). See also goaheadtours.com/pgi/puglia-southern-italy

That leaves you with private (custom) tours, which you can normally organise at any time although there may be a minimum number of participants. See e.g. http://www.experiencepuglia.com/ - http://www.toursofpuglia.com/ - http://www.toursbylocals.com/Bari-Tours

Thankyou qaminari for your help... it looks like my husband and I may need to take the private tours for that time of year as I have been finding it hard to locate any other type of tour operators. Ing55

from my research Angelo at Experience Puglia sounds like an excellent option. You may find him available at that time of the year...for our time he was booked. Communication was good and lots of reviews.

If a private tour, the tour could be arranged at any time, even during December or January.

For example, Experience Puglia runs guided winter tours.
