What people are saying about Bari

The boat trip was excellent, we enjoyed it so much. We had a friendly and talkative guide, to sum up: recommended boat tour. The pick up point is 10 min by car from Polignano, but be aware in case you are not travelling by rented car, you have to walk 40 min or take a taxi, which is better to reserve priorly.

Umberto and his girlfriend were great, super The only thing is the directions to the meeting point we’re not crear, it should say Bari port, Vitoria port! Other than that amazing!!!!!!
