What people are saying about Bari

My daughter and I absolutely loved the orecchiette making session and walking tour. I had read a review that said the pasta experience was not long enough but we thought it was perfect for the time frame and content of the tour. I’m a pasta maker back home and I loved it. Chiara, our guide was excellent. Vibrant, knowledgeable with a great sense of humour. Highly recommend!

Our guide Allessia was amazing. She was friendly, patient, and a fun spirited tour guide. My tour group was mostly made up of Italian speaking tourists but I never felt neglected as Alessia always split the time equally explaining the history of Bari in both English and Italian. I am so grateful I got to explore Bari with her. 10/10 would recommend!

Great city tour through Bari with great explanations and interesting visits. The highlight was the pasta course with a real Italian Nonna. We made the famous Orechiette together and were able to eat it afterwards. At the end of the tour there was also delicious ice cream included. Definitely recommended 👍

We had an amazing time! Our guide - Nicolas - was absolutely fantastic! He told us so many interesting stories, took his time explaining the food and its history in detail, which made everything so wonderful. He was funny, kind and very knowledgeable. We strongly recommend the tour and the guide!

Beautiful and experiential experience. We thank the velo service company which allowed us to do the activity even though a group had not been formed. A round of applause to Carlotta, who is very knowledgeable and friendly. I recommend 100%
