What people are saying about Bari

Wonderful full day out to Matera and Puglia winery. Gio our guide was fantastic, sharing his knowledge of Matera and Puglia. He was very good answering all my questions. Both Gio and Julian our driver were friendly and very good company for the day. We started in the town of Matera and then walked down into the old town and historic area. We had a delicious lunch at a great restaurant in the old town. The food and service were outstanding. We stopped at a winery on the way home and had a generous wine tasting of several different varieties of wine all produced on site. Thank you Gio and Julian. My husband and I had a wonderful day. Thank you for your good company and for helping us learn more about Matera, Puglia and Italy. I highly recommend this tour and Green Italy Tours.

Our captain was excellent. He allowed all who wanted to take turns piloting. Unlike many of these trips where the sails are for show only, we were under sail all afternoon. Took short break for wine, great snacks and swim. Would highly recommend this tour and especially this captain. By far this was the highlight of our 6 week European adventure.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about the history of Bari. Navigating our way round the tiny cobbled streets was fun and ended with a lovely gelato.

The tour was awesome. You have plenty of time to experience Matera and Alberobello. Tour guides were so knowledgeable, answered all questions. Highly recommend tour.

Es war ein sehr schönes Erlebnis bei dem ich viele Spezialitäten der apulische Küche kennenlernen durfte. Vielen Dank an meine wundervolles Gastgeberin!
