Our guide, Nicholas, gave a fantastic tour of Bari. It was informative and personable. We passed through a few larger tour groups during our walk, and I felt like we were having a better experience than they were. He was completely fluent in English, which was perfect for two dumb American college students who had little to no grasp on the local language. Some advice for other travelers, we were three young men in our twenties, walking fast and far, and we got the full tour of Old Town, The Beach Front, and a considerable hike (at least 45 minutes, probably an hour) from our AirBnB done within 3.5 hours. Take that information how you will, but I can't imagine needing more than 4 hours for an extensive tour of Bari. I can't stress enough that this tour was of high quality, given by a professional in his trade, and on top of that we booked it last minute (within 36 hours, and I can't imagine that Nicholas had more than 24 to prepare). Highly impressed. Full recommended.

Turisti in Puglia excellent at communicating with us. They let us know so what to expect throughout our day and provided us with detailed information. Our driver arrived early (which was perfect for us as we were at the pick-up point early). The driver was courteous, kind and professional. Our on-site tour guide met us as soon as we arrived and immediately began sharing his wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend this tour and this tour company.

A very interesting guide with a very good level of English who will explain the history of the city to you with passion and answer your questions with precision and barely hidden enthusiasm. She will take you through the typical streets of Matera on a 2-hour guided tour. It should be noted, however, that visits to buildings are chargeable and not included in the reservation.

The best walking experience I have ever had. Kath is the best, friendly and professional.

He was extremely helpful, interesting and flexible. He adapted to our needs.
