My husband and I took this tour accompanied by the guide Isabella who knows immediately she proved to be competent, courteous and nice to her, we saw and visited through the beautiful alleys of old Bari some of the places plus some of the most subjective and most suggestive places of this beautiful city I suggest everyone to undertake this tour especially in the evening at 18 because with the temperatures it is a bit milder than the Apulian Augustus, it is appreciated more without getting too tired and above all you begin to glimpse those beautiful colors that only the sunset can give

Very nice tour of Bari! We had already been here for a few days, but despite that we still saw many new beautiful places. The tour guide will show you the real local things, just like taste the food with the locals! Incredibly delicious too! You see a different part of the city not from the tourist point but also more from the population. The tour guide was super enthusiastic and proud of his city! Very nice to see! We had a super fun tour and would really recommend it to everyone!!

Good experience. Some restaurants were closed for a holiday so we had to improvise but we had a lot of good food and conversation.

This tour will enhance your understanding, appreciation, and love of Bari in so many ways. I can't recommend it enough!

Very nice, Annarita our guide showed us beautiful and particular places by putting passion and competence.
