This was a great week's activity holiday. We went in early May and had: * super weather - no rain * interesting towns and visits ('Name of the Rose' castle; mediaeval fair at Altamura; troglodyte Matera, fishing port Monopoli) * abundance of wild flowers * a nice group of 10 * great food and drink * and fun cycling! Puglia was really nice and refreshingly un-touristy. The cycle routes were well planned with generally very little traffic except when approaching / departing the towns. Nice mix of inland and by the sea. Our highlights were: * cycling on lanes with wild flowers and nice views * stops for fab Italian ice-cream * a couple of local 'taster menu' evening meals * good opportunities for landscape photography (but I missed the large wild boar in the national park!) Excellent planning, English and style of leadership. Good choice of restaurants and food experience - bread, pasta, olive oil and wine. And, ladies, not only knowledgeable and charming but good looking too!

The experience was cultural, gastronomical, social, vigorous and safe. The penultimate ride into Monopoli was so picturesque I felt like we were on a movie set being filmed. The final day just came together weather-wise combined with archaeological site visit, beach visit and beautiful Adriatic costal ride back into Monopoli.Ernesto was and excellent tour guide, very good with both the tour participants and locals alike having excellent communication skills in both Italian and English. He was very helpful, always available to answer multitudes of questions whist at the same time appearing to stay in the background. It made a great change to be so well looked after not only during cycling but also during the evening when we were taken out in to the best restaurants to we ate and drank the best food and wine from the region, all caringly suggested by Ernesto. How wonderful it was for me not to have to think, plan, arrange or organise anything for a whole week and how lovely it was to be looked after so well by such a charming, humorous, knowledgeable, cultured and eloquent person.

The trip was a fantastic combination of cycling, sightseeing and amazing food! We visited some beautiful little towns and it felt like we were off the main tourist trail. The cycling was hard enough to feel like you'd done something to justify that extra gelato but not all consuming.
Ernesto was a brilliant leader. Knowledgeable, enthusiastic, approachable and always had a smile on his face. I couldn't fault him.

beautiful mix of biking and culture... leader was exceptional...
the hotel svevia was sub par and we had a very unpleasant experience re: one of the showers had human waste residue in it..... the manager was mortified and sent flowers and wine and apologized profusely but despite this occurence which could have been a one-off this hotel did seem a bit sub-par even for a 3 star and compared to the others..

the restaurant we went to in arberbello with the "famous" chef from television was over rated and he was a bit obnoxious..

although we didnt need it your publicity said that a van would be available throughout but we actually only had a support van with us on one day.. . not an issue for us but just thought it was a bit misleading..
the tour guide was an amazing, accommodating and highly knowledgable individual.. Ernesto... he was also very careful to watch for all members of the group ensuring no one got lost and that everyones needs were met.... really exceptional guide.... organized dinners for all of us together and the group was quite cohesive...

thanks it was a suberb holiday and good value!!!!

Vancouver Canada
This trip exceeded my expectations in every way. The tour leader, Ernesto Benfari, really went above and beyond to give us a real southern Italian experience, complete with local history, anecdotes, and information on the local customs, architecture, geography, flora and fauna. The food was amazing!
