What people are saying about Bari

Relaxed and light hearted tour of the main sights in Bari Vecchia with a sample of local delicacies. The guides Carlotta and Teriana were friendly and helpful and took their time to answer questions. Recommended if you are new to Bari/Italy and want a general introduction to the town in a friendly setting.

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!!!!!!

Teresa was an excellent guide. The entire tour ended an hour later than advertised - we did the pasta making one. Perhaps make this clear on the ad, otherwise highly recommended

We loved the tour. With a couple of surprises, and altogether a lot of fun. The Velo Services company and our guide Arianna very nice and attentive. A highly recommended tour.

Our tour with Alessia was fabulous. The food stops were excellent and Alessia was not only charming but also very informative. We enjoyed ourselves immensely.
