Katrina was brilliant! We thought we'd be tired out by the walk, but it went by in no time. Really interesting tour, and we had a great time chatting to Katrina about life in Bari. She also gave us some great tips for places in Puglia and local restaurants / bars.

We had a great afternoon. Our guide Paco told with enthusiasm and took the time to show us the "highlights" of the old center. We couldn't have asked for a better ending to this tour (making and tasting oriecchette).

The guide was really helpful,patient and pleasant. The pasta cooking and tasting as well walking in narrow alleys where they still sell hand made pasta and sweets was really wonderful experience.

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

Interesting tour with a friendly guide and a very nice pasta workshop. .
