What people are saying about Matera

everything went out in a perfect way. Met the guide a few minutes before the start. She could answer every question and the tour was full of interesting and sometimes surprising facts about this fascinating city. Thanks again Lucia for a great tour. I can just recommend it and would book everytime again....

The tour was very informative and not your average kind of information. You could see that the guide studied the town extensively and dug up information not easily available by doing just a google search.

Our guide Lucia spoke very good English and stayed with us for longer than the stipulated time. She made the walking tour very interesting and fun. I highly recommend her.
