This trip far exceeded my expectations. We had a blast. Even though I am a novice biker, I never felt like a novice. Our leaders were encouraging, and made sure that I was comfortable in whatever I chose to do.

We saw Puglia in a way that we would never have done on our own. Our leaders were awesome. Their primary goal was our comfort and enjoyment. They couldn't do enough for us.
Cathy DiBonaventura - Philadelphia, PA

The leaders really made this trip an exceptional adventure. The beauty of the countryside coupled with the leaders' local knowledge and sincere concern for each of us to share and understand all that the region offers made this a lifetime experience.

I've spent these last two days telling everyone that my Puglia trip was absolutely perfect. The leaders, were wonderful, extremely professional and yet lots of fun and engaging. I will always remember them telling us to "embrace the chaos" of Puglia and we did. I learned about Italy and also learned a great deal from my fellow travelers. I was traveling alone for the first time ever and the Backroads format made everything work - a great balance of group activities, the freedom to spend time alone and the opportunity to challenge myself physically - all in a beautiful environment.

This trip was unforgettable! Of course, the weather cooperated, but we had so much fun. The riding was sometimes challenging and I finally met a hill I couldn't walk (very well)! Celebrating my 69th birthday on a bike with great people, superb guides, and gorgeous scenery couldn't have been better! I am always hesitant to try a new bike, but these were beautifully maintained, very forgiving, responsive, comfortable, and easy to get used to. I had thought about bringing my own bike, but yours were better.

Fabulous trip! The group was perfect and our leaders could not have been better. They were the greatest!! Their caring, compassion and knowledge was outstanding. They truly made our trip terrific! I so enjoyed learning about the area and meeting the people.

My husband and I have been fortunate to travel to Italy on several previous occasions but never have we so thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in every sense of the word. From our adorable and wonderful leaders, to the food and accommodations, to the beautifully exotic countryside of Puglia, we LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF OUR TRIP.

This was our "vacation of a lifetime"... we LOVED, LOVED, LOVED our Backroads trip! The bar has been set so high with this trip, that we wouldn't think of trusting an "active vacation" to anyone else - and we could never have put that agenda together on our own...a real value in "action-packed" travel!
Holly Childs - Morgantown, WV

This trip was definitely one of the best!!! The biking was great (many types of terrain,) the food was delicious and the scenery was simply breathtaking... On a personal note, I have to add that Backroads has really become an integral part of my life. It only took one trip to get me hooked. I love the research and anticipation before the trip, meeting new people and experiencing so many different things.

Backroads, you've got it right.

This being my fifteen trip, I can honestly say this is the best dynamic product in its field. The guides, equipment, food, support, follow up are without compare. It is always a delight to meet the guides, intensely trained to care and run such efficient trips. The guests are always varied on my trips which keeps it interesting. A winning combination that I will continue to participate in, hopefully for years to come. Just keep up the excellent work and in twenty years I'll still be there, maybe I won't function as fast but I know they'll find me somewhere along the path. Thanks Backroads for your attention to constant change and improvement, not that you have far to go!
