    The tour followed the itinerary as expected. Slow start in Naples and Bari, but built a strong finish from there.

    Our tour guide did not seem very animated about the Italian way of life . Our next Backroads tour , of Southern Italy BRA24919, had Annalisa , as our tour guide , and she was so much fun. Helped us make the most of our holiday .

    Should have had more time to explore matera and lecce. Should not use hotels that are out of town eg bari. Could have had less time in gallipolli.
