Where you'll be

About halfway along the route we will stop in front of Grotta Palazzese, one of the most famous sea caves of the town, on which stands a famous restaurant whose room has been created inside the cave. We will then head towards the rock of the hermit, a natural islet where several centuries ago a solitary lived alone. We will then visit the cave of lovers (also known as cave of the pigeons), where in a precise instant

Ce n’est pas Francesco absent pour raison de santé mais Michele qui a fait la promenade. Sympathique, ballade sympa sur petit bateau.

Francesco was very kind and helped us get to the pickup spot as we did not have our own car and were not familiar with the area. He was very informative and gave us info about each grotto we visited and the local beaches. We even got a chance to swim which was an amazing addition to the trip. I would recommend this tour 100% percent to any of my friends.

Da Francesco nicht selbst kommen konnte, durften wir Giovanni und seine Familie kennenlernen. Es war der perfekte Sonntagsausflug für uns. Giovannis Sohn hat uns vieles zur Küste, der Eremiteninsel, der Grotta Palazzese etc. erzählt. Die Städte vom Meer aus zu sehen, gibt einen herrlichen Überblick. Das Eintauchen an Bord in die kühlen Höhlen ist imposant. Das von Bordspringen eine super Erfrischung. Ohne diese Tour hätten wir den Strand Port'Alga mit seinen Höhlennischen ganz in der Nähe von Polignano nie entdeckt, zu dem wir anschließend gefahren sind. Hier sind Parkplätze (im Gegensatz zum Hafen) leicht zu finden und das Klippenspringen ist ein tolles Abenteuer für Kinder und Erwachsene!

Unfortunately we were unable to be met by Francesco who had an emergency to attend to. The tour was okay... unfortunately our new guide didn’t seem to speak any English so we didn’t connect too well or get told much about the areas we visited - but in saying that he seemed nice enough. It’s a short tour but gives you a little taste of the coastline and you can jump in for a quick swim. The boat is quite small with no shade so if you do book, you definitely need to be prepared for the sun and pack water to drink etc.

Francesco was very kind, he picked me up at the train station and took me to the docks. The experience was amazing. The caves were beautiful. Francesco did have to change the date due to the high waves but it worked out for both our schedules. Highly recommend.
