I couldn't have asked for more help in searching for relatives in Bari where my grandfather was born. We talked with strangers and were helped by so many people. We found a street with several mailboxes with my unusual last name listed, and knocked on many doors! I may have met relatives, I don't know since I had so little information. But Alessandro took me to the old areas, piazzas and churches where my grandfather would have grown up. Emotional and very satisfying. A big THANK YOU Alessandro!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Diane, i'm glad you appreciated my efforts to find your roots. Sometimes is better to experience the places where your grandfather spent his childhood than to find a far relative without anything in common with you.

The tour was perfect!!! we were all super happy with our experience in Bari. We saw the important things in the city then went wine tasting which was perfect we were able to experience the city and then went for some shopping. He was excellent. 10 starts
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Erica, it's easy to work with you and your friends: you are so nice and you know what you like. I've spent such a nice and relaxing day with you. Thanks a lot.
Alessandro took us to visit St Nicholas sanctuary and explained its history and religious significance. Then we passed by the Norman-Swabian Castle and Alessandro explained both architecture and history. Near the castle we took a mouth-watering ice-cream before commuting to the narrow streets of old Bari where women work pasta by hand. We had a chance to purchase some orecchiette. We really liked Bari and Alessando.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really liked you and you and Manuel: you're such a nice persons. I hope to meet you again in the next future together with your wonderful family.

Alessadro is fabulous. He knows Bari inside and out and takes you through every nook and side street. He also knows the restaurants and provides great recommendations to enhance your stay after your tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karen, thanks for your feedback and I'm glad you enjoy also the restaurant (honestly, is one of my preferred one where either the meat or fish either the vegetarian menu are excellent).
Jennifer (Carotina) WittmanUnited States
Alessandro was a great guide with lots of detailed historical knowledge of Bari city center. He was so accommodating and really made my short tour of Bari after a long day of travel a WONDERFUL experience. I wouldn't hesitate to call on Alessandro the next time I'm in the region. He's got a fantastic, upbeat personality and was a pleasure to tour with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jennifer, mee too I enjoied a lot the hours spent together in the odl town of Bari. I hope you took the cue from the tour for your TLC (Thyroid Loving Care) which is very interesting.

We were a group of 12 english speaking on an Adriatic cruise and had had lots of good private guides eg at Trapani, Kerkira, Split, Koper, and Kotor. Alessandro had a strong accent and 'lectured' us rather than interacted with us. By the end he improved slightly by we would only rate him 2 or 3 out of 5. Anne Heads, group leader who had previously visited Bari twice independently.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Honestly, I tried to do my best (I did exactly the itinerary you requested). Unfortunately you changed several time the meeting point on the previous days and a few minutes before the tour: that's why we start the tour later and I need to do everything quickly. I like to interact with people (and the old ladies who make pasta in the old town too) but it takes two. It's a shame because, as tour leader, you could let me know your travellers' needs before or during the tour when I asked your rather than now
Dennis CrawfordUnited States
Our guide Alessandro was excellent; passionate about the history and beauty of Bari. Our visit was greatly enhanced by his personal charm and knowledge of the city. His English is very good. I would recommend Alessandro!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dennis, thanks about your feedback and I'm very glad you like my services and Bari with its old pictoresque town and the Murat area.
Thomas KastnerUnited States
Alessandro is a very knowledgeable and personable tour guide. He pointed out many very interesting historic facts and architectural details as he took us through the intriguing city of Bari. This tour allowed us to see the highlights of this beautiful city, and with Alessandro by our side, we had an insiders perspective that gave us a glimpse of many of Bari's hidden gems. While our 3 year old daughter was not on her best behavior, Alessandro creatively taught her to freeze like a statue!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Thomas, thanks for your feedback. It has been a very nice day also for me. A big hug to your wonderful family.
