Hi, this is Riccardo. I've got a tour guide license in Italy in 2018. I graduated with a degree in foreign languages, I won 2 European grants in Spain, so in 2011/2012 I studied in Madrid a Master in teaching a foreign language. I've also did one school year in Greece, thanks to another European grant. I have worked at the tourist information offices of Bari and Madrid. I teach Italian in Spain, and Spanish and/or English in Italy. I love mediterranean food and I enjoy giving tour guides in Madrid and in south Italy, to share my passion for history and culture.

Riccardo has outstanding knowledge of Bari. He makes sure that the history is well explained to the participants before the tour begins. It was an informative and interesting tour overall. Would recommend.

Queremos agradecer a Riccardo ya que se mostró muy predispuesto a hacer el tour con nosotros a pesar de que éramos los únicos 4 participantes. Mantuvimos una charla amena y nos acompañó a recorrer esta hermosa ciudad, brindándonos datos interesantes.

Free Tour bewertet xD First a thank you to Ricardo for taking his time and make a free/donation based tour possible. But sadly I have to say it was one of the most horrible tour I ever had. I accompanied a friend and have done a tour before in Bari. - Facts of the tour where partly wrong - Questions wiped out and not answered - Took a picture while the bell was very loud at 12 on a Sunday. Did it very bored and just to skip the „quietness“ it felt. No one was ready for the pic. - He continued texting me after sending the pictures. With a kiss emojis. And asking how long I stay in Bari. I found that very intimidating. - never asked if we have questions. Maybe it was his first tour. We don’t know. Here some things to improve: + research facts once more + Be ready for questions + Be honest if you dont know the answer, this is not a professional tour and everyone will understand. Maybe google them while we walk and give answers later + Recommendations of Bari are always a plus + maybe a tour on Sunday morning when every goes and leave the church isn’t a good idea.
