About
In just an hour you can visit the most interesting places in the old town and in the Umbertino village. Our slogan is "the best way to visit the city of two seas". In fact, it often happens that you are just passing through our capital, you stop only for a few hours, a fleeting meal and you are disappointed to have noticed a beautiful city but that for reasons of time we did not linger as it would have deserved because the territory is quite extensive, what better opportunity then to speed up everything by spending a pleasant hour letting yourself be guided aboard a nice Calessino bee? Seeing is believing.

      A must-do in Taranto!
      Let me first start with that this tour is a must-do in Taranto. Gianni, the owner, is very kind and extremely flexible. I had to change the day and time of the tour but he made it happen. My tour guide was Francesco. I couldn’t have wished for a better tour guide. He is from Taranto and that adds value to the tour. He showed me interesting places and told me facts that I did not know, even while reading the tourist guides. This tour and Francesco’s enthusiasm made my stay in Taranto amazing. I believe I should come back to Taranto to do another tour. Thank you guys, you are amazing. I highly recommend this tour.

      Pleasant Surpise
      I had no idea this even existed, though I wish I had. It is about an hour long tour around the city providing opportunity to stop and enter all the major sites. I had Roberto and the tour was in English. 5-stars. I'm glad I saw these driving around an inquired. The price is also fantastic!

      Gemma is the best!!!
      This tour is the best ever!! The little tuk tuks were perfect to zoom around the beautiful, busy streets. I lived here for 8 years and Gemma taught me so much about Taranto that I didn’t know about?!! She was so kind and was able to give my sister and me a tour in English! She drove very safely through the narrow streets of Italy and was able to show us all the hidden and historical buildings and museums of old Taranto. We love you Gemma and we’ll definitely do the tour again next time we come!!😁

      We had a great time!
      They gave us a ride through the whole city. There were the 8 of us and everyone enjoyed it so much! The guys in the calessinos spoke English really well, they knew everything about Taranto. It wasn’t even expensive. So we spent some quality time with them! Totally recommend!

      Tour of taranto
      We had an excellent tour of old Town taranto and some of the new town. Our guide took us into some very narrow lanes which we would not have seen on our own. He was very informative with decent English. There were taped English sections as well. He ended the tour taking us to a restaurant near to where we parked our car. Well worth the 30 euro fee.

      Great service and experience
      Originally we’d wanted to have a tour of the castle. Finding it closed and the next tour not for an hour, we hopped in a tuk tuk and had a great tour around the old town and new town. We were 2 couples in 2 tuk tuks and the 2 drivers did a great job making us feel like we were on the same tour. Very knowledgeable guides and an overall great experience.

      Good value for money!
      We met Carlo at the castle and joined him for a trip through Taranto after we had lunch. He was very good in explaing and we got a very good overwiew about the town and it's history. He started the explanation in good English and we finished it in Italian - the explanations were very good, in which language ever. Join him and you will have a nice tour through the town.

    Great little trip around old and new Taranto! We had booked 2 tuk tuks as we are a family of 4 and the kids had fun swapping between the tuk tuks. We managed to stop and see the inside the main churches and a few of the sites for photos. Would recommend this tour if you want to save your feet and enjoy the ride!

    We took the Tuk Tuk tour in earl May 2022. Our driver/guide was Andrew. He turned up on time and took us on a tour of this beautiful city. Along the seafront, down the alley ways we would never have explored on our own. Pointing out the range of architecture on display from ancient times to the present. Of particular note was the fascist era buildings. And of course the religious buildings interiors of which were as stunning as any we have seen in Rome or Venice. A great hour with Andrew. Highly recommended.

    Loved this! Picked up from cruise port and had a brilliant tour around the old town. Such a great vehicle to whizz in and out of the alleyways.
    And the church we visited blew me away,

    Great commentary from Roberto and he was so helpful offering to either drop us back at the ship or showed us where we could catch our bus back.

    Highly recommend!

    We pre booked this trip via trip advisor. The information received prior to travel was excellent the instructions on where to find them were good. The cruise ship ran a shuttle bus into the main square in Taranto which was perfect as this is where the Tut tuts are located . We were expected and our Tut tut was waiting for us . Our English speaking guide was fantastic, she was obviously local and very knowledgeable. The tour includes all the notable sites in Taranto along with its history. Tut tut was comfortable and driven expertly by our guide. Would highly recommend.

    Absolutely fantastic tour, terrific guide who told us so much about this fascinating city. Stops were just the right length for us to take in what we could see. Lots of "local colour" info to really give a picture of life here. Well worth booking!!

    We got off our cruise ship without a reservation for Taranto In Calessino. I had read the reviews and was sad they were all booked. We saw Fransesco waiting for another customer and we decided to talk to him. He made our trip happen within an hour. It was the best experience. After we were finished, we were dropped off at the cruise ship. Perfect tour. You can't go wrong with this one. Thank you.

    Easy to book from home. Excellent tour - would never have covered all on foot. Roberto, our driver, was very knowledgeable as well as pleasant and polite. His English was excellent. Recommend to other visitors.
