A Luglio sono stato a Bari e ho pensato di approfittare di questo tour per conoscere meglio la città e vederla sotto un’altra prospettiva. Devo dire che l’aspetto storico relativo alla origine delle difese cittadine mi ha davvero sorpreso.
Fabio, la guida eccellente che ci ha condotto in un incredibile viaggio nel tempo, ci ha raccontato aneddoti unici mentre ammiravamo gli esterni della Cattedrale e della Basilica di San Nicola. La visita al Castello Svevo poi è stata una piacevole scoperta e mi è sembrato di scivolare in un’altra dimensione temporale. Un’esperienza davvero piacevole che consiglierei di fare se vi trovate in zona!

Ho usufruito del tour nel mese di giugno. Ho potuto ammirare alcune chicche della città vecchia godendo dell’ottima preparazione della guida turistica e della bella accoglienza offerta da tutto lo staff. Che dire un servizio ben reso che consiglierei a tutti.

Consiglio vivamente questo tour da pugliese. Ho prenotato questo tour per alcuni amici e ho voluto accompagnarli e mai avrei immaginato di rimanere emozionata dalla competenza e dalla professionalità di tutto lo staff.
Dal Castello alla muraglia e ai vicoli suggestivi di Bari un crescendo di emozioni.
Top!

Domenica scorsa abbiamo trascorso una bellissima giornata per i vicoli della città vecchia. La nostra guida Luana è stata molto simpatica, coinvolgente e professionale, ci ha illustrato le meraviglie della nostra fantastica città. In particolare ci siamo soffermati nel centro storico il vero cuore pulsante del capoluogo in tutte le sue molteplici sfaccettature. Ottima organizzazione. Lo consiglio vivamente ai turisti e ai baresi che vogliono fare un tuffo nel passato tra i vicoli, le mura rigorosamente bianche, la gente allegra e il clima che riesce a coinvolgere chi la visita.

Las guías fueron encantadoras, todo el tour fue en Español porque una de ellas lo hablaba perfectamente. Un tour muy ameno, perfecto para entender un poco de la historia de Bari y sus lugares principales.

Me gustó que el free tour fuese en italiano y después fuese traducido al italiano. Vimos lo más significativo del casco histórico, pero es cierto que se hizo un poco pesado, ya que todo eran datos históricos, que no está mal, pero alomejor hubiese estado genial que mientras recorríamos las calles nos dijeses lugares para comer, o sitios a los que merece la pena entrar pagando.

En general muy buena es experiencia con las dos chicas italianas.

La guía Franchesca fue muy amable y la traductora nos ayudo muchísimo. Muy recomendable. No es una caminata extensa y cuentan curiosidades que hace más divertida la experiencia.
