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

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.

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!

We liked the visit a lot, we have discovered bari vecchia and the guide has been super nice and well prepared
