Puglia: A great way to discover it

4
Brilliant idea to self guide ourselves around this little known area of Italy, which has so much to discover. The cycling routes were really well thought out and lots of fun to follow. A mix of challenging and easy, so something for everyone, which optional extra bits such as off-road sections. Stunning countryside and castles. A mix of hotels, some of which were excellent, most good.

Fantastic holiday

A great way of exploring the country, though some beautiful scenery staying in hotels that matched the character of the towns.

So glad we cycle during the month of October, weather was very comfortable. Fabulous cliffs with majestic sea views at every tops. Hotel selection was spectacular and authentic to region. Plenty of time to visit sites and explore during the day and left over energy to take advantage of nightlife of all the charming cities. Self-guided was simplyfie by accurate maps and practical stickers of an arrow on strategic intersections. Oh yes, we also made friends from all around the globe !

Fantasic scenery, wonderful trip

We are a couple who went on the self guided heel of Italy cycling trip. We loved it, it was such a great experience, waking up every day and cycling in such a wonderful part of Italy. The first couple of days through olive groves and vineyards and the next days by the coast (which was my favourite as the scenery was amazing and stopping to swim in the coves that we came across was so much fun. Everyday we got to a great destination, and it was brilliant, just to have a wash and then go out and explore such wonderful and historic places. The hotels are a mixture of old and new, always in good locations. Breakfasts were full of different fruits, pastries, breads (loads of it to set us up for the day) I couldn't resist Italian ice cream and made sure I tried it every evening to check that it was still as delicious as the last place.

Exodus Response

We are pleased that this client enjoyed the trip overall, but we were sorry to read the comments about the hotel in Alberobello. The 2013 hotel was in fact a series of converted trulli houses, which we thought was a nice touch, but it is clear that they were not enjoyed by many of our clients. We therefore made some quite significant changes to the itinerary at the end of 2013 and in 2014 we have been using different accommodation which has been well received.
