What people are saying about Apulia

Top tour, I can only warmly recommend it. Super guides, great equipment and driving the Segways through the narrow and crowded streets of Bari is simply unique. The tour was advertised for 1 hour ended up being 4 hours. The guides really took the time to explain everything in English and German and were super relaxed. Do this tour it's an experience.

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.

Umberto and his girlfriend were great, super The only thing is the directions to the meeting point we’re not crear, it should say Bari port, Vitoria port! Other than that amazing!!!!!!

Very nice trip on a very nice boat. Vito is an enthusiastic and funny guide, I would definitely book this trip once again. Thanks for the great experience!!

It was an amazing day on the sea. I highly recommend. Our captain was superb!!!!
