    Madera Bike Tour
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Starting out  from Montalbano we’ll reach the olive grove plain and the ancient Traiana road that in the past connected Rome to Brindisi and today links Fasano and Ostuni with a paved cycling path, with hardly any traffic, full of spots of interest that describe what rural life used to be like. During the tour we explain the history of the olive oil, from cultivation to harvest of olives describing the different production methods depending from on its final use: from the lamp oil to the high quality extra virgin we’ll tell you about the history and the passion developed over the centuries, always in tight connection with the local community. On the trail we will visit an hypogeum oil mill with old millstone and presses, a fortified masseria farmhouse, a modern mill and a centenary olive field. Is possible to arrange an extra virgin olive oil tastings.

We are 2 families travelling with teenagers and we did the bike tour where we cycled along by the olive groves and then had olive oil tasting. Daniele was our guide. He was very informative and the tour was really interesting. The olive oil tasting was excellent. We really enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend this tour.

We spent a lovely morning on the Extra Virgin Olive Oil Bike tour. Daniele was a great guide and made it interesting and enjoyable and the cycling not too tricky along the old tracks away from traffic. Now we are much more knowledgeable about olive oil and its production and have a small can of the Leccino oil to savour at home. Would thoroughly recommend this tour!

We had such a great time on our tour. Daniele is a fantastic guide and gave us a really insightful tour of the olive groves and countryside around Montalbano. The history of the trees, the Masserias and the production of olive oil is fascinating.

The olive oil tasting was fantastic, although we appreciated that there are different qualities and characteristics with olive oil, the tasting really opened our eyes to what we should look for.

We had a great time and highly recommend this tour.

We had a wonderful time with Danielle doing this bike trip. We stopped a few times and got extensive explanation about olive trees, olive oil, masseria's and the region. We did some cheese and oil tasting. Danielle is a very friendly, entousiastic guide. Overall, this was a top activity, we warmly recommend it!

Luckily the rain stopped just as we started our tour. Beautiful countryside, safe, flat cycling. Stopping frequently to hear Daniele's thorough knowledge of the local area and to take some wonderful photos. Stopping to pick wild flowers, eat fresh peas, mulberries, rocket. Highly recommended tour.

We had a fantastic tour with Daniele during our holiday to Puglia. He had all the right kit for our various children - helmets, child seat for our 2yo and a bike tail for our 4yo to sit on. The kids loved it! He made it so easy to book and made good recommendations based our our children’s ages. We did a half day tour through the olive trees, just stunning. It was a great distance- plenty of opportunity to stop along the way to see local landmarks, but we felt like we’d covered a decent amount of ground still. I particularly enjoyed his knowledge of local herbs and fruit, he took time time to point out things like carabs, wild asparagus, thyme etc. Thank you Daniele!

My husband,daughter & I loved our bike ride with Daniele today! He is a fantastic & enthusiast guide through this beautiful & very different part of Italy. His great knowledge of history & passion about his local area is obvious. We learned so much about the olive growing business as well as lots of interesting information about the land,the ancient trees & historical sites. Riding bikes through this area at a leisurely pace was a very special experience!
Highly recommended!

We have just returned from a week in Puglia and one of the highlights was a bike tour with Madera tours. We were two families with 5 children aged 9 to 14. Danielle our tour guide was fun, knowledgable and kept everyone interested even in the heat. He then arranged a meal at a local bakery. Great day out and couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you Danielle.

We are so happy we took this tour! Danielle is wonderful & friendly guide! The family enjoyed the visit to the olive farm, learning about 1000 year old trees, and wrapping it up with a delicious tasting! The kids (9&13) were able to keep up with the biking as it was only 10 km.
