We had a wonderful trip with Antonella this afternoon. After reading online about this trip it was one of the first things we decided we just had to do on our trip to puglia.
And even with our high expectations the trip did not disappoint! We booked the Monopoli countryside tour and visited some very special places around Monopoli. These are places you do not read about in your Lonely Planet. The guide Antonella brings you to Masseria where she will pick up the key of the owner to show some real archeological wonders. We visited an old underground olive press on the land of a very friendly family. The owner had restored everything himself by hand to the original state, a project that must have taken him years but he did so with a definite passion and an eye for detail. I will not tell you about everything else we visited because it is nice to be surprised, but you will definitely not regret this trip.
About the level of difficulty: as we are Dutch of course we are used to biking, but the tour is fine for everyone who is able to just ride a bike for a bit. Comfortable pants to wear are important though if you are not used to biking :) you want to be able to still sit during the rest of your trip hahaha. We would definitely book this trip again!
