Not enough history.
Sail Date: December 2018
Not enough history. The tour brought us through a poor area in which children were throwing fireworks at us. I'm not kidding!!! The police were around the corner and did nothing. Bizarre!!!

Splendors and Flavors of Old Bari The description of this tour was very misleading. It says “you'll board a very comfortable little train to explore the city in all its glory”. In reality, only a few minutes were spent on the tram. The bulk of the 3 hours was a 1.7 mile walking tour of the old town. The “tasting of delicious local products accompanied by a glass of wine” consisted of a few thumbnail-sized pieces of crackers/breads and a single sip of wine from a small disposable cup. The street full of pasta-makers was interesting, as were the historic buildings and basilica. Take bottled water or have a few euros in your pocket. The few small shops don't take cards or dollars.

The difficulty rating was a 2 however the brochure did not mention the steep hill climbing which was very difficult for some of us to do. This excursion should have been rated a 3.

Sail Date: November 2014
The first port was Bari. The tour was okay, but it was translated into English and then French. So they tour took longer than if it was one language. The guide's English was okay.

Our tour guide was amazing, but unfortunately, Bari really isn't that cool of a city. There is a Norman Castle, which we saw from the outside and two cathedrals. The cathedrals were pretty, but nothing to incredible. One is dedicated to St. Nicholas, so if you are Catholic or Eastern Orthodox, this might be a cool stop for you. Read Less

Granted it was on a Sunday, but absolutely nothing open other than the cathedral. Dirty. Lots of locals just "hanging out". Our tour guide seemed to be very apologetic about Bari..."but you should have seen it before everything was pillaged and moved to Naples". 6 of us on the trip and definitely the low point. Read Less
