Reviews for Matera to Puglia cycle in Italy


review 16 Sep 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The itinerary is beautiful, except for some bits where you ride in some areas devastated by the fires in 2017. Great to meet people from all over the world. Also, is very stunning to watch the sunset in the Atlantic.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Expect a very leisurely pace, less than 20 km/h in average and four stops a day, and do some hills after lunch. You should expect to arrive at the hotel at 4 pm or more by the plan. The average age of the group is 55-65 years old. Generally, good hotels are chosen, however, the Literary Man in Obidos is not worth it, except for its breakfast.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Do it with self-guided if you can cycle for 30 km around 2 hours non-stop and you want to do some exercise. The group is guided at a very leisurely pace and does four stops each day at least, adding some extra photo stops.
