What people are saying about Bari

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!

We loved our Street Food walking tour in Old Bari with Manuela! She was a wealth of information and her English was easy to understand. It was fun walking the narrow streets, seeing several churches, learning the history of the area and tasting original Barese foods: Focaccia salami cheeses fried polenta breads a little vino and gelato! Great 3 hour tour!!

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!

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!

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