We were spending 3 days in Lecce (our first visit) and decided to contact Espressino for an evening walking tour and orientation on the night of our arrival. What a great idea! Robert and Lili were amazing showing us the sites, giving us tips on what to see and where to go. But the food...they know exactly where to go for the best typical foods and we enjoyed so many on our tour. If you're going to spend some time in Lecce contact Lili and Robert!

We spent two weeks with Espressino travel in September 2021. This was one of the best holidays we have ever had, and we cannot recommend this amazing experience highly enough. Puglia itself is a dream destination - the cities, beaches, food and hospitality are incredible. Espressino's local knowledge and relationships with people across the region makes all the difference. They have a great passion for the region and are deeply knowledgeable, making the experience all the more special. Before the trip, Espressino took the time to discuss our needs, likes and dislikes so everything was tailored well in advance of the holiday. Unfortunately because of issues around COVID, we had to make various changes and our hosts were flexible and assisted us with everything from quarantining to PCR testing. Espressino's boutique experience took all the stress out of holidaying in a new place, and the care and attentiveness of our hosts was exceptional. All the hotels, restaurants and beaches were curated for us. If you have the opportunity, treat yourself to the Espressino experience, it exceeded our expectations in every way. Thank you!!

I wondered, when I signed up for the Umbria tour with Espressino Tours, whether it would live up to the tour of Puglia that I took with them two years ago. I needn't have wondered at all - it was really no surprise that Robert and Lili did not disappoint. They expertly and seemingly effortlessly guided us through some amazing cultural sites of the area, providing a local history and art expert who helped us delve even more deeply into the most significant of these. Once again, Robert and Lili have made many warm connections with local chefs who plied us with delicious food and wine, whether in their homes or in their restaurants. The cooking classes were lots of fun. It was truly eye-opening to see how one chef prepares amazing meals in the smallest of kitchens, and we will not soon forget how privileged we felt to be welcomed into the lovely home of another. Cheering on our favourites at a medieval drum festival competition, truffle hunting in the magnificent hills around Pettino, plus several delightful surprise activities (which I am not going to give away) rounded out our week. I can now say unreservedly that I have had two "trips of a lifetime."

We shared this trip with 10 other friends. I would call it an experience as opposed to a tour. Lili and Robert of Expressino Travel effortlessly (it seemed to us) and gracefully led us through day after day of food, culture and cooking. They have a wonderful relationship with the people of the region which allowed us a very personal experience. After a day or two Lili and Robert were just one of us - except they worked harder. Our accommodations at the Mantatelure were outstanding. Cooking with Gianna Greco and making pizza with Maurizio were highlights for me - as well as the sailing adventure out of Monopoli. Masseria Brancati olive trees and picnic alfresco lunch and the farm to table feast and tour of Masseria Le Stanzie were fabulous. Every event was personal and lovingly offered. Truly the best vacation Emil and I have ever experienced. Lecce is a beautiful town and we could very easily spend more time there. Thanks Lili and Robert and Espression Travel.

Our group of 12 had a fantastic time on this tour. This tour was all about the culture, food and fabulous people of the Salento region of Italy. Lili and Robert with Espressino Travel shared their unbelievable knowledge and experiences of Puglia with us each and every day! There was a surprise around every corner and every day exceeded our expectations with a new adventure! The highlight of the trip was meeting and spending time with local influences such as Gianna at Lecce's cooking experience and Maurizio who taught us to make real Italian Pizza! Everyday, we ventured out to a new location to meet special people, hear about Italian history and culture and eat amazing food. From the amazing Olive Tress at Masseria Brancati to great wine at Castello Monaci to our sailing excursion on the Adriatic Sea and the farm to table feast at Masseria Le Stanzie, the trip was an unforgettable week in Italy with our good friends!
