What people are saying about Bari

Emanuele is a very nice guide who explains everything in several languages (also in German). Very entertaining tour. All in all, Bari has fewer sights to offer compared to other Mediterranean cities, but the tour is still interesting. Since the tour is relatively short in terms of kilometers, it is advisable to continue using the bikes afterwards for individual trips (it's free). I think booking through the local office would have been cheaper. Research in advance would have been rewarded :)

Enjoyed our sightseeing trip on the bikes- lots of information on the city from our lovely guide. Was fairly easy cycling & not too far with plenty breaks. Kept the bikes for an extra couple of hours so we cycled to a lovely beach. Managed to have a swim, dry off & cycle back before catching the shuttle bus back to our cruise ship. The shuttle bus dropped us off literally 2 mins away from the bike shop- an unexpected bonus!

Amazing tour of Bari! Our guide Carmela was personable & friendly and shared a lot of interesting history about the city. We also went for a delicious ice cream during the tour! The bikes are comfortable. You see a lot in 2 hours & you have the option to leave a deposit and keep the bikes until the evening - we did so and cycled around the city and to the beach! Recommended if you are in Bari!

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!

Our guide was fantastic! Very informative and friendly.
