What people are saying about Apulia

highly recommended experience, we had the pleasure of touring the city with Francesco and the small but very nice Michelino who kept us company throughout the tour. We really appreciated the modification of the itinerary chosen ad hoc as we had just concluded a first walking tour with the guide. we will carry this magnificent memory in our hearts. good guys!! Giorgio and Cristina

Comfortable and usable vehicle (as it happened) even in case of rain as it is equipped with a roof and protections. Kind and nice guide. During the tour, which lasts about 40 minutes, one of the house-museums among the Sassi is also visited on foot. They accept little dogs.

Staff very helpful: I had the wrong day of booking but instead of giving me a joke they made me do the out anyway. Which is worth every penny

Excellent solution to give a glance to the splendid Matera especially if you are with children!

Very nice way to see Matera and learn a bit more about the village.
