Great tour with a fantastic guide ( valeria). Interesting sights and commentary. Food was lovely including Bari street food ( fried polenta with salt) and the best gelato in Bari. Highly recommend. Our 13 year old daughter liked it too. We also booked the pasta making tour but it was very similar so cancelled within 24 hours with no quibble - great service!

We loved our Street Food walking tour in Old Bari with Manuela! She was a wealth of information and her English was easy to understand. It was fun walking the narrow streets, seeing several churches, learning the history of the area and tasting original Barese foods: Focaccia salami cheeses fried polenta breads a little vino and gelato! Great 3 hour tour!!

This was a fantastic experience. We were with a group of four other visitors which was perfect. Our guide Daniela was brilliant and explained everything from the herd of cattle to cheese production and the components of our lunch. Would thoroughly recommend!!

A very nice experience. A few tips. Taxis were not readily available in the town. Make sure you arrange in advance. Google translate is a plus if you don’t speak the language. Be prepared for a big meal.

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.
