Wow! Just back from our 3rd trip in as many years with PCT. Each time Emanuela puts together a different and interesting tour. Cycling was great, weather was perfect, routes were interesting, including a few obligatory swimming stops, and the food, wine and hotels were just great. This year we actually had a few technical problems and found PCT to be just as helpful and responsive as we would have hoped they'd be. Huge shout out to Mimmo who always seemed to be a 30 minutes away whenever we needed him. Can wait to come back next year!

Just back from an excellent week, staying at Il Palmento, with daily route and bikes provided by PCT. Great routes on very quiet roads/ paths / strada bianchi, easy to follow with provided Garmin. Bikes in great condition and perfect for terrain. Restaurant recommendations were brilliant. It’s an excellent way to see the countryside of Puglia / Itria valley, and a lovely hotel to come back to in the afternoon / evening. The terrain is quite undulating, so be prepared for a decent workout, but rewarded with beautiful and varied countryside, delightful, usually hilltop, towns and fantastic food.

We had am amazing week of Puglia cycling in February. Our daughter and her husband teach and their spring vacation was in February, so asked Puglia Cycle Tours (PCT) if they could organize a week long trip then. It is a bit early in the season, but we had perfect weather - clear skies and perfect cool temperatures for cycling. PCT selected wonderful hotels in fascinating and beautiful towns, with cycle trips each day that focused on quiet country roads that were spectacular with mid-day visits to towns and archaeological sites. It is hard to find words to describe how much fun it was cycling in the heart of Puglia farmland with ancient olive trees among blooming wildflowers and early crops, then to realize that we were cycling on a 2000 year old Roman road. We rented road bikes from PCT. The only problem with them was that they were so good that now we are spoiled and not so happy with the bikes we own at home! Antonio met us on the first day and gave us a great orientation, including fitting the bikes and teaching us how to use their GPS routes and cell phone. We did a self-guided tour and kept in touch with them, messaging with the cell phone for effortless communications. I had a minor adjustment problem the first day and Mimmo came at breakfast the next day to fix the only issue we encountered. All in all a perfect family cycling vacation.

We decided that the best way for both of us to enjoy this trip was on e bikes, as our fitness levels were so different and we are a bit older! Happy we did, they were great bikes, my husband cycles a fair bit, me not so much. I did a fair bit of research, really wanted to deal with a small local bike tour coming. Extremely happy with all aspects of Puglia Cycle Tours. Bikes (helmets and saddlesbags) all great. Accommodations amazing luggage transport and support/assistance great. GPS was good (sometimes had trouble finding the line but always managed to get back on track) Suggest always having something on hand to eat in case lunchtime hits and you are not near a town, or it is afternoon and nothing is open. This happened our first day and this amazing local made sure we found the only open bar in town, he turned his car around and drove with us....all without any of us being able to speak each others language! Had a lovely lunch at colorful little bar. The first night we met up for a group dinner with about 8 self guided cyclists who had left the same day. We were all travelling and staying on the same route...and ended up dining and riding together some days. A great bunch of people to be with but we also did our own thing whenever we wanted to. Loved being able to get up in the morning and leave when we wanted, stop whenever and as long as we wanted. My only issue (and it's not really an issue) is we would have loved more time in many of the towns, they were so lovely. But it is an cycling tour! We did book an extra day before we left Matera, definitely glad we did that...what a place! And you are 2 nights in Alberobello. Guess we will just have to go back!!!

So well organized, great communication and excellent equipment. Custom day ride for us since only in Bari for the day. Pick up and drop off co ordinated perfectly. Our 50km loop was how I envisioned a cycle through the Italian countryside! Scenes from a movie! Beautiful weather. We had a wonderful wine tasting / snacks at perfect stop during the day. We cheated with the e bikes but these were so neat to try - glad we did. Thank you so much Puglia Cycle we highly recommend!
