Very Professional bike company with excellent tour guides

Almost 2 weeks ago I was in Ostuni, when I went on a half day bike tour through the olive groves and along the Adriatic in Puglia. It was a leisurely ride with beautiful views of the landscape and excellent information provided by the tour guide regarding the agricultural production of the region, the process entailed in the olive harvest and processing and a brief history of the aquaculture of the region. The company is extremely flexible in arranging tours to fit one’s preferences and very accommodating in terms of transporting cyclists to and from start and end points. You will not be sorry you went on a bike tour in Puglia if you go with this company.

Great tour guide, beautiful city

Puglia is breathtakingly beautiful and worth having a tour [of] by foot in the inner city and by bike on the outskirts to see as much of it as possible. Daniele, the tour guide, was very responsive, helpful and knowledgeable about Puglia. I had the luxury of being the only person on tour at the time and so it was very much a tailor-made tour. If you’re looking for a laid back tour, with a helpful and well versed tour guide, I’d recommend Madera Bike Tours.

Great Fun

We all loved the bike tour which lasted about 2 hours. We were looked after very well throughout and we were taken to see superb and varied Masseria. We particularly liked the very old masseria were we were shown round by the family. The children loved the 2 week old calves and were thrilled to see the 5 day old foal. We bought some of their cheese which was delicious. We were three generations of the same family. The little one was in a seat on the back of a bike. The 7 year old loved the bike she was given. The pace was chosen to suit us all. We will be back.

Best thing we did in Puglia

Simply a must do!! Fun, off the beaten track, authentic, and best of all, Daniele’s passion for his region, knowledge and sense of fun and adventure. And did I mention an amazing value? I wouldn’t do a bike trip with anyone else! He made history come alive and connected to current issues in the region. Can’t wait to go back to Puglia and bike…there are many different bike tour options, wish I had planned to do more than one!

Great Way to see the Regional Park

Daniele told us most of his bike tours started in the cool of the late afternoon/early evening. We (Mad Dogs and Englishmen, etc) requested a 9.00 am start. Daniele indulged us and took us on a 3 hour bike ride through Olive Groves to a Masseria and on to a megalithic site. His commentary throughout the ride was very informative and interesting. He is very knowledgeable and his concern for the environment is obvious. This is a great way to get under the skin of Puglia away from the beaches, Trulli and churches.
He also made an appointment for us to visit Masseria Brancati and the olive oil museum in the afternoon which we also recommend.

A very nice bike tour in the countryside

Our group of ten, including kids and teens, did a great bike tour from 5 to 8pm with Daniele of Madera Bike tour: first the coastal dunes and swamps followed by the olive yards and masseria at the back. A great evening with lots of interesting information and tips provided by a highly motivated Daniele. Highly recommended. Prefer the late afternoon in the summer as Puglia can be very hot.

Lovely Bike Tour

This was a lovely bike tour through the Ostuni countryside. It is a leisurely ride easy enough for even children, and is about 2.5-3 hours. Daniele is informative and passionate about conservation. We explored the sea, the countryside, and some beautiful masserias. I have limited Italian, but he was kind enough to translate for me when needed. I highly recommend this tour while in Ostuni. Just don’t forget bugspray. Thank you Daniele! – Sante and Jennifer

Authentic Puglia

Daniele led us on an enjoyable and educational tour of the dunes, olive groves, masseria and farms of this area. He is an excellent tour guide and his love of the landscape made our exploration of it a pleasure. We learned so much about the diversity of the land from the coastal dunes to the Valle D’Itria. The ride is leisurely and safe. A must do to see authentic Puglia.

Nice country stroll

Even though we were only two wanting to go biking this day, Madera Bike Tours managed to take us for a nice tour on small and narrow country side roads, while learning about local agriculture and traditions.

A fun way to learn about the Ostuni area

Great morning with Daniele riding through the olive groves and masseria with cheese tasting enroute. Daniele was very informative and his passion for conservation came across strongly. Would thoroughly recommend this easy bike rid
