- The week was planned to give us a wonderful balance of interesting rides and an insight into the culture of Puglia, with many excellent meals to give us a taste of the local offerings. Don't expect to lose weight on this tour.
Ernesto is a superb guide, treating us as responsible adults but always available to help in any way that we needed. He was informative and knowledgeable.
The highlight of the week was the time spent in and around Monopoli, a beautiful seaside resort, where our accommodation was of a very high standard. I was tempted to miss the flight home and to stay for the rest of the summer.
Our tour was the last full week of April and we had one day when the weather was decidedly chilly (think February in the UK) so don't just pack for sunny days.
Although the tour is graded as easy, we did seem to take in a fair number of hills. Also, we cycled on every day . . . so no free days.
As a regular traveller with group holidays, this is one of the best trips that I've been on.
