      Awesome. Delicious. Love Bari and Anna Rita
      We had the awesome pleasure of Anna Rita Maracchione as our guide. She was so much fun and very flexible as I had very bad allergies and needed a pharmacy before we could even start My husband is quite the character and she seemed to enjoy his antics. We walked thru old Bari and savored the unique tastes of Bari including gelato, focaccia, olives, cheese, meats sampling with a little vino plus a fried dough stuffed with cheese and tomato sauce. We also visited the street of the little arch where the ladies make the Orecchiette pasta. Everyone beyond Anna Rita at the Velo office was so friendly and gracious however Anna Rita went above and beyond and exceeded our every expectation. I should add I am 71 years old and she paced everything for my comfort. We highly recommend Anna Rita and this private walking tour.

      Walk back in time and savour the sights of an ancient port city
      Excellent tour guide. Beautiful ancient port city. Very interesting tour that is good value for money. We bought our ticket from the Information Centre (not directly the company shop - which was our mistake) but they did not tell us it was a bilingual tour (we speak English). The guide worked very hard having to translate into English AND French, which did mean having to wait for both groups to hear the information. It was lovely to stroll the cobblestone streets, enter the cathedral and watch the old nona’s make pasta.

      Best Bari Bites and History!
      At the last minute we changed from a two hour to three hour tour and were so glad we did! Our guide, Barbara, was charming, funny, knowledgeable about food, history and Bari. We loved it. The foods we tasted: focaccia, pasta dell’assassino, sgagliazze (fried and salted polenta) and gelato were all delicious, with just enough walking in between tastings. We were lucky to have a very congenial group of co-travelers as well.

      Fun rickshaw tours in Bari with the best guides
      We took a rickshaw tour with Christian and it was just amazing, Christian was supernice, telling a loads of things about Bari, making the best restaurant recommendations, taking us for the best ice cream in Bari and well, he was kind of a magician to make the rickshaw tour interesting for our 5-year old kid, as well, who doesn't speak English. :-)

      Great for limited time in Bari
      Chiari was a great guide and showed us around the old town in Bari. We only had 2hrs so it was perfect. We even stopped for the best ice cream in town! We were also interviewed by the local news....I hope we made it on TV!!

      Food/history bike tour - a great way to get a taste of Bari Vecchio
      What a great way to get a "taste" of old town Bari, combining bicycling, food and history. Chiara was a wonderful tour guide. She treated us as individuals and as a bit of a family. She is good story-teller. I wondered if the food part of the tour might be underwhelming, but not so. There was plenty of good food. I even went back to the salumeria we visited for a some lunch food for the next day. One bit of caution - be sure you have decent cycling skills. Some of the streets are quite narrow and you have to take care to avoid pedestrians.

    Amazing tour of Bari! Our guide Carmela was personable & friendly and shared a lot of interesting history about the city. We also went for a delicious ice cream during the tour! The bikes are comfortable. You see a lot in 2 hours & you have the option to leave a deposit and keep the bikes until the evening - we did so and cycled around the city and to the beach! Recommended if you are in Bari!

    A super great triple-thumbs-up experience. We had one day in Bari and made the most out of it only from this awesome bike tour. Our guide was sweet Anna. She taught us the traditions and little secrets of the area. Saw Donna Carmella from close making the traditional Orecchiette pasta. Met a local performer and we all participated with local instruments creating gorgeous Italian music. What a great experience. A must in Bari.

    We had a great time on this bike tour! It was so fun to bike around the old town and the lungomare along the sea. Overall, we biked around 2.25 miles, so it was not very demanding, yet we learned a lot of information from our guide. We also appreciated that we were offered the option of helmets. Thanks for a great time!

    In February we visited Bari and chose to do a bike tour of the old town. Our guide Francesco was fantastic, very knowledgable, friendly and catered to our interests and speed. We loved riding through the old streets and seeing how the locals live. This is a beautiful city and so glad we took the time to stop over. We were lucky being February it was quiet and easy to cruise the streets. All the staff were so friendly and helpful, they also organised another tour for us in Alberobello. Loved our time spent here.

    First I would like to thank Giada for her dedicated presentation on the nice parts of the city. We made a tour through Vecchio and Murat and learned about the history. Actually the cycling route itself through the small streets was already a nice experience. Keep up the good work I would say!

    Nice small group of about 10 led by Paco and assisted by Adriano. Very informative and paced just right. Learnt a lot in a short time and time for some street food before the end. Good recommendations for additional visits which we took up. This gives you a nice overview of Bari old town - I suggest the morning visit as you can end with lunch at the many eateries. All staff very friendly

    We had the tour with Adriano, who is native from Bari and lived in the historic center for a few years. He knew his city (which was a labyrinth to us) like the back of his hand.
    We got to learn lots of insight about the history of bari and how the daily life happens there.
    Adriano was very friendly and cared to give lots of advice for the end of our stay.
    Highly recommended!!!
