We were visiting from New York City. This was an excellent tour! Very informative, and our guide (Adriana I think was her name? She wears glasses and spoke English and German on this tour) Was fantastic! A perfect amount of history, and she really knew how to engage everyone on the tour! Would highly recommend this tour!

We arrived too late at the meeting point and were assigned to the group by an employee - great explanations in the old town - nice pasta experience with a lot of fun and subsequent tasting (but not our "own works" - because these were all just first attempts )

A tour you cannot miss when in Bari! Our guide was Carmela, super nice and helpful, she shared a lot of detalis about the city! Loved the whole tour!

If you're into history, it's a good experience, the guide was a historian, so you got full value for money.

The service was of high quality, mainly our guide Manuela. Perfect English, good presentation.
