Dora was great. She drove us out to Craco to visit the abandoned village. Well worth the drive and the fee ($100 for 2) She spoke excellent English. Highly recommended !

Fully enjoyed the walking tour of Matera with our guide who was very knowledgeable but never over did it. I would recommend the walking tour which was exceptional value for money when compared to other guided walks in Matera. Thanks again to Dora for also waiting for us as we were an hour late due to some travel problems getting... More

Dora and Michele, the owners and operators of Ferula Viaggi, recently gave me a tour of the incredible city of Matera and the surrounding region. They were affable, creative, knowledgable and witty. Their expert English conveyed a wealth of history and culture to me. As residents of Matera, with a long family history there, they have an intimacy with the... More

After reviewing Ferula Viaggi's website, I arranged the tour with Dora via e-mail before our departure from the USA to Italy on 17 February. We arrived in Matera by car on the morning... More

My husband and I did this cycle on a self guided basis through Bike Basilicata (Ferula Viaggi) - the bikes were excellent and well maintained, comprehensive route notes supplied along with contact numbers if required. Found we did need to stop often to find street names, places and occasionally distances were a bit inaccurate but it was great fun, excellent... More

This tour was really a slide of paradise - I have never eaten so much in my life! I came on this tour with my mom and brother, and it was a great family reunion for us. Michele, our guide, knows all the ins and outs of Basilicata. We experienced wonderful hospitality, beautiful tours, comfortable hotels (exceeding expectations!) and best... More

I booked a self guided bicycle trip with Bike Basicilicata (Ferula Viaggi) and had an excellent time touring Bascilicata and Puglia. The locations were excellent - small towns with plenty of character. The cost was much less than comparable other bike trips, plus I like dealing with local companies, like Ferula Viaggi, which is based in Matera. They were very... More

I came across Ferula Viaggi via Lonely Planet when i planned my Matera trip, LP speaks highly of it and I decided to give it a try. I booked two programs :Matera, the underground city and Bread of Matera and mozzarelle. My tour guide Michele is a Matera native and has great knowledge and passion toward his town, great sense...
