    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.

Great way to spend a morning!
Sep 2020 • Solo
So happy I booked this tour on a whim; had a great morning with Daniele (ended up on a private tour because a group cancelled), we rode to several places where we would stop and he would explain the history of the area and olive oil production. The tour was not only fun, but super informative and a great way to discover the area.

Brilliant bike 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.

Fantastic Bike Tour in Puglia
Oct 2019
We had a fantastic day touring the ancient olive groves and masserias with our guide Daniele. We were a family of four, with a nine and twelve year old. I would highly recommend this tour with kids, which takes you off the beaten path on quiet country roads. The region is beautiful. We made stops along the way to find out about the local history and geography from our knowledgable and personable guide. We also picked up some delicious cheese at one of the farms we visited.Thanks for the great day out Daniele!

Wonderful guide through beautiful scenery!
Oct 2019
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!

Sep 2019 • Family
We booked this tour last minute to explore off the beaten path and we were so glad we did! We bicycled thru scenic paths of ancient olive groves, working farms and ended with a tour of an olive oil factory. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Puglia because we were able to see things we never would have known were there. The guide was friendly and very knowledgeable of the region and everything Puglia has to offer!

Aug 2019
This was a highlight for our Puglia trip. We enjoyed the cycle ride - not on difficult roads and with plenty of stops. But it was the enthusiasm of Daniele for the history of the region and delightful interactions with local people which was so special. Will never look at an olive grove the same way again

Family bike ride through the olive groves
Aug 2019
We had a great evening cycling through the beautiful olive groves of Puglia with our tour guide Daniel. We had lots of stop-offs to hear about the landscape, coastline and olive groves as well as exploring some caves. We also stopped off to pick some fresh figs which kept the kids going! A great fun and informative few hours in the beautiful countryside. Very flat, easy cycling for all the family. We were a group of 9 with 5 children aged 9 to 13 years old and Daniel pitched it just right keeping everyone involved and interested. I'd definitely recommend this tour to see and hear about the real Puglia.

Family bike tour with Madera
Aug 2019
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.
