Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have have been doing self guided bike tour for over 15 years.
This by far was the best experience with a bike tour operator.
Aging gracefully, in our 60's we did the e bike tour, Amazing Puglia. We were able to customise to a slightly shorter trip.
Very professional and helpful from the very start.
E bike's we good, no issue's, a few years old but worked great. Make sure you confirm the bike size you need and stick to your guns. In the end they came thru with a size large for me.
Using the map app was wonderful and truly well done. maybe two or 3 errors the whole trip. There web site advises bringing a booster charger for ones phone, which we needed.
At the end of our trip, I forgot to remove my own pedals before they took the bike away. My mistake. I called and the next morning they delivered the pedals before our morning train out of town. What wonderful service.
Note on your last day they pick up the bikes before supper so you cannot use them again that evening or early the next morning.

excellent trip- the bikes exceeded our expectations, and the accomodation was well thought out and perfect for our needs. If we go again we probably would take on a more demanding route

Very impressed with Apulia bike tours. Everything went smoothly and the quality of the different bikes we all hired was excellent.

Apulia Bike Tours did an amazing job putting together a fantastic itinerary that included great accommodations, perfect routes and helpful suggestions and recommendations for stops, sites and restaurants. The entire team was responsive and great to work with.

Fall is the perfect time to visit this area of southern Italy. It is relatively uncrowded by tourists at this time of year, temperatures were warm but moderate and the local people were truly welcoming. The area is rich in history, with several castles, fascinating art and its own unique culture. There was plenty of room at the beaches, and they were absolutely beautiful with crystal clear water. The wonderful staff at Apuliabiketours.com bent over backwards to accommodate our needs. Guests who are thinking about this tour might consider buying the package with upgraded hotels. We found that some of the economy hotels we stayed at were very basic indeed . . . 2 1/2 stars at best. Some of the bikes were showing the need for additional maintenance, as well. We were also shocked by the large amount of trash that could be found along some otherwise very scenic routes. That is a challenge for local authorities to address.

We did the Baroque and Sea Tour. The start of the tour was quite disorganized since Apuliabike neglected to send us the essential app beforehand and, on the morning of our departure, we were unable to log on. This caused a lengthy delay and we were forced to use someone else's itinerary until they could correct the problem the next day. This should have been sorted out well beforehand! The app was excellent; easy to follow and would give vocal alert when we went astray. The app also had lots of info about the destinations and the route. The app would get us from town to town but would not get us to the designated hotels. We had to use Google Maps for that. Google Maps does not work well in Sicily! We had paid extra to get "deluxe" accommodation (4-5 star hotels) rather than the "economy" class, but at least 2-3 of the hotels did not meet that standard. Expecting to spend time in a villa at a seaside village, the designated hotel was 8km. outside of town! Despite these issues we enjoyed the bike riding in the bucolic countryside and the beautiful Baroque villages that we visited. Much of the itinerary was along the coast so we got to swim in the Ionian sea on several occasions. The itinerary took us on backroads, allowing us to avoid the narrow main roads with no room for bicycles and drivers who "owned" the roads. The good: excellent itinerary away from major traffic. The bad: disorganized start to the trip, disappointing hotels,

We did the Tour FROM SASSI OF MATERA TO SALENTO with gravel bikes. The selection of cycle paths, the navigation with the App, the quality of the bikes, the support and contact with Apuglia Biketours... Everything was perfect, very professional and uncomplicated.

Our group of 5 adults just completed the Grand Tour Puglia…amazing! The trip was well thought out and we really feel like we saw a lot of Puglia. Apulia Bike Tours did a great job from the route, our bikes and the accommodation, as well as being available when we needed them. We chose the lower level of accommodation and were more than satisfied with the places they chose. We were using e-bikes which we were thankful of as the route was quite challenging. The route was downloaded onto an app which we quickly got used to , also there was so much info provided on the app about what to see and do as well as dining suggestions. We started near the beginning of May and were treated to a beautiful display of wild flowers! Definitely recommend this trip and Apulia Bike Tours!

The ride was beautifully organised. The operators are very responsive. The bikes were first class.
The routes were excellent and very peaceful off the main roads
The villages we visited were interesting and lovely .The accommodation was good to excellent on the 3 star option
It was the best organized bike trip we have been on and Sicily is such a great place to bike with interesting villages and lots of backroads

Our group of three circled Apulia from Alberobello, Gallipoli, di Leuca, up the east coast to finish in Poilgnano. The lodging selected by Apulia were excellent - very unique and comfortable. The routes were well designed. We had a mechanical bike issue, and the company worked diligently on the weekend to resolve it to make it rideable. We also encountered torrential rainstorms and wind resulting in road blockages and dangerous conditions. The company quickly arranged transport at our cost to allow us to skip a miserable day of riding. I am currently planning a 2024 trip with Apulia due to my great experience this time. I have used other tour companies around Europe, and Apulia is among the best.
