Giorgio is passionate about the people of Bari and it comes across clearly during his tour. He provides priceless and authentic insights and experiences in old town Bari. Highly recommended!
I've hired a ton of Private Guides over the years both in Italy and beyond but I've just never had anyone quite like Giorgio. His knowledge of the history and culture of Bari, combined with his passion for the people, the food and even his job were simply phenomenal. Funny... he seemed to know everyone we passed by and he was so friendly and engaging that I came away feeling like I knew them too :) Super-friendly, very smart guy. Grazie mille Giorgio!

Loved this tour through Old Town Bari and would definitely recommend it to others! As a guide, Giorgio provided an enjoyable & insightful introduction to the people of Bari along with important historical context. His style was very interactive and he helped us understand this area of Italy, but also other places that we visited during our trip. We didn't expect Bari to be a highlight of our travels, but it ended up being one of our favorite places to visit, due in large part to Giorgio's tour!

One of best guides ever. Friendly, warm and attentive. Concerned for us and our needs and interests. Giorgio was so nice that almost didn't matter what we were seeing. Gary Lotner
Giorgio is an amazing guide. He went over & above to share his love and knowledge of Bari history, cousine & people with us. We had a most wonderful, authentic experience. He allowed us to become a part of the community. Giorgio has fantastic people's skills & an excellent communicator who shared his love for Bari & Puglia with us. He is an absolute joy to be around and we highly recommend to take a tour with Giorgio to get to know the real Bari & Puglia. His English is fantastic. Thank you Giorgio

I highly recommend Giorgio! Seven friends and I were lucky enough to spend a few hours with him as our guide on the "People of Bari" tour -- he treated us to a wonderful insiders look at the marvelous old-town, and truly brought us into the lives of the beautiful, warm and welcoming people of Bari. We hung out at the fish market and sampled the fresh catch, walked the streets where everyone seemed to know (& love) Giorgio -- leading to fantastic interactions with great. A favorite day of a 12 day trip!

Giorgio obviously loves his town as well as the rest of Puglia. It shows in his enthusiasm and friendly manner which helped make the drive to Castel del Monte go very quickly. He took us into the real, everyday lives of people in Bari Old Town and set up food tastings, both of which were real treats. He's happy to talk about his culture and learn about others. And he's funny! Can't recommend Giorgio enough.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Helen, thank you for your feedback. It was a very nice afternoon and thank you for the little spanish class :) Hugs!
Jill CaronUnited States
Giorgio hands down provided the best tour of our 12 day Italy trip! The combo of the small group size & his incredibly intimate knowledge of the people & history made it a one of a kind experience. Making a pit stop for (a much needed) espresso at a tiny neighborhood cafe & noshing at the local market were experiences only exceeded by all the locals we got to meet with through him. His guidance also allowed us to make the most of our remaining time to cover the best Bari has to offer. Highly recommend
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jill, thank you for your feedback. I loved the time we spent together. Come back soon to Apulia.
Kelly G.United States
Giorgio was a fantastic guide. He was so knowledgeable and made the tour of Bari to suit our needs. We really enjoyed the places he took us to and felt like we were getting a peek into the lives of the residents and got to understand their unique culture and taste delicious foods. He was very easy to get along with and made it a memorable tour for our family. Do not hesitate to book with him, it will be a highlight of your trip! Do yourself a favor and book the lunch too!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kelly, thank you so much for your rating! I still remember how you enjoyed your time in Bari and it let me so happy and motivated. I hope to see you again in Apulia very soon. All the best Giorgio

The walking tour with Giorgio in old town Bari was like going back in time. This was a tour about people, the family life and culture. It seemed like he knew everyone in the narrow winding streets and they all welcomed us as his guests. It was more than learning about the old way of life but actually experiencing it with the people. Anyone who enjoys or is interested in the history, lifestyle, food and wine of Italian culture at its original roots will thoroughly enjoys Giorgio's tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mike, grazie for your feedback and for your words. You are that kind of "back to the roots" that I love so much. All the best!
Fabulous. Giorgio is an excellent well informed guide who is passionate about his city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Laurel! It was just amazing to meet you!

Joe BodakUnited States
An absolutely wonderful tour that focused on local residents of Bari's Old City, but also included the standard monuments and history. The opportunity to meet various residents and talk with them, with Giorgio translating, was priceless. Tasting a variety of homemade foods, and enjoying a home made pasta lunch prepared in front of me added to my enjoyment of this tour which I strongly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Joe, it was a great day. You are a motivating and happy man and I really enjoyed how you interacted with local people. I hope to see you again. Giorgio
