My mother and I were exceptionally satisfied with the tour Le Baccanti put together for us. We had a wonderful day as we toured through Lecce and the wine region nearby. The service Le Baccanti provided for us met our expectations, and we felt like we were touring and tasting the best the region has to offer. In our opinion this tour was planned very successfully, and helped us get a better understanding of the cultural and sensorial heritage this part of the world is lucky to have. Thank you to Le Baccanti for this great experience! I would recommend this tour to all of my friends.
