What people are saying about Bari

We took the tour as a family of four with two young kids and had a really great time. Our guides Carmela and Giallo were very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Bari and also managed to make the tour fun and engaging for the kids. The food stops were all excellent - go hungry as the servings are generous! Good value for money as well, I wholeheartedly recommend this tour.

Great tour with a fantastic guide ( valeria). Interesting sights and commentary. Food was lovely including Bari street food ( fried polenta with salt) and the best gelato in Bari. Highly recommend. Our 13 year old daughter liked it too. We also booked the pasta making tour but it was very similar so cancelled within 24 hours with no quibble - great service!

This was a great way to get an overview of Bari, hear some history and see the sights on a pleasant ride. Our guide Gaida was very knowledgeable and interesting. She gave us time to enjoy each stop. It also helped us find our way around the next day. Highly recommend!

We were 6 adults so we had 3 rickshaws;. Manuela, Valeria and Carlotta. They were excellent, their English was very good and they provided us with an interesting and light-hearted narrative. Great fun and somewhat educational. Recommend!

Our guide was fantastic! Very informative and friendly.
