With over twenty years experience travelling around Southern Italy and Greece, BB Travel has a wealth of hands-on know-how of this special area of Europe. We are a completely bespoke travel agency because there is not one itinerary that fits all. We are that trusted friend that can give you the advice you need: with the latest insider tips for anyone wanting to explore the regions of Puglia, Sicily and the Greek islands. Based in Sydney our understanding of the Australian traveller is the cornerstone of our business.
We believe in sustainable and responsible tourism that gives back to the local communities we visit and love. That is why we never deal with a middleman or with chains. All our hotels and villas are family-owned, our food and wine experiences are booked direct with the producers, and our excursions are organised through small independent local operators.
All of our suppliers have been handpicked so we can guarantee the same customer care throughout our portfolio.
We also donate to a number of local charities and carbon offset all our tours so that we can minimise our footprint on this beautiful planet.
