    Just returned from Biking in Puglia. The trip was an experience of a lifetime. The guides, Irena, Eduardo and Glyn were amazing and always did their upmost to make the experience the perfect one for us. The bike routes brought us along the coast, thru olive tree groves and showed us a beautiful countryside that is a hidden treasure. The accommodations and places we dined at were amazing.. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!!

    Recently came back from a family Puglia trip. Unfortunately, this trip did not live up to the B&R reviews and expectations. Big disappointment. We've taken adult only trips with B&R which were great. We've done the Loire Valley family trip - fantastic! Highly recommend it. However, If you have children and are thinking about Puglia with B&R, please reconsider. Apparently, this family trip has been put together recently and that is felt throughout. One of the guides, L, was exceptional, pulled the whole trip basically. Another guide was abrasive with children throughout the trip, held wholly inappropriate conversations around the kids, was impolite, rushed us in the morning, etc, etc, etc which made all of us traveling families wonder what he is doing there in the first place. For children's activities this guide was suppose to supervise, we simply did not feel comfortable leaving the kids with him. In the past during our B&R trips, the whole experience was exceptional, pre, during and post trip. If there ever was a hiccup, the Canadian home base team handled it swiftly and in a wonderful way. We loved B&R so much so that we would plan our vacations with B&R itineraries in mind, gushing about the trips to anyone who would listen. So, to bring our 11 year old and to have this experience was beyond disappointing. The way this was handled by "the middle management" this time was subpar. If you have children, our advice would be to consider another company. At least for the Italian B&R portfolio.
    Butterfield & Robinson commented on this review
    Hi Marina, Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback, and for the kind words about B&R’s portfolios and your past recommendations to peers. We’re sorry to hear about your experience with one of our guides in Puglia, and understand the importance of suitable and appropriate behaviour from our guides, especially around children. B&R has established a set of standards and level of service for the traveller experience that we trust runs across all itineraries in all of our destinations. To hear traveller feedback suggesting otherwise is disappointing and we have used this opportunity to address and amend the performance of this guide. We hope you will accept our apology and think fondly of your previous experiences with B&R. We believe this was an anomaly and would love to see you back on the road with us in the future.

    Amazing trip cycling around Puglia from Brindisi to Bari. The two guides went out of their way to make sure every experience was exceptional. All our needs were anticipated and always looked after. Everyday we were delighted by the agenda. For busy people used to the responsibility of making the right decisions, we had no qualms about handing all the planning and decision making over to the tour company and so that we could just live for the moment knowing all the best decisions had already been made for us.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Do I need to be an athlete to do a B&R trip?

      Not at all! Our trips are not athletic contests. If you walk or bike to stay fit, or if you swim, play golf or do another aerobic activity, you shouldn’t have any trouble on our trips. We’re not distance walkers or pro cyclists out to challenge your limits. We bike and walk simply because we believe they’re the best ways to get a true sense of the region you’re visiting. Our trips span a whole range of activity levels; choose the level that fits you best and then set your own pace. And whatever level you choose, you always have options—add an extra few kilometers, take a shorter loop back, or just spend the day by the pool catching up with a good book. And wherever you are along the route, you can always catch a lift with the B&R support vehicle. If you get in a little exercise before you leave (we send some training suggestions before your trip!), you’ll have no trouble going the distance.

    • What kind of support can I expect along the way?

      Behind the wheel of the B&R van, your guide provides support along the day’s route, offering refreshments, picking up your purchases (it’s not easy walking or biking with ceramics or several bottles of olive oil) and giving weary travellers a lift. You will see the van in action as it sweeps slowly back and forth along each day’s route and occasionally positions itself at pre-arranged checkpoints that you pass en route. The guide may also use the van for certain trip support duties, such as shopping for the perfect picnic. Where some trails aren’t accessible by vehicle, your guide(s) will pre-arrange rendezvous points each morning, allowing you to make your day as long or as short as you’d like. Plus your guide(s) are just a phone call away; we provide their cell numbers on the first day of trip.

    • Do I have to carry my own luggage or gear?

      Nope. On a B&R trip, you never carry your own luggage. Everything you need during the day fits into your handlebar bag or a small daypack that you can bring on the walks. All other luggage is transported by local baggage handlers or the B&R van. Your luggage will be waiting in your hotel room when you arrive at the end of the day.

      I was able to review many different tours, prices and length at one site which saved me a lot of time in researching my options of which tour to pick. The filters helped to narrow the search.
