Dora Cappiello is a walking history book of Matera and the entire area. Her manner is easy and comfortable and exceedingly knowledgeable! We really got a true sense of so much of the history of Matera and saw by car as well as walking so much of the area. She and her husband also did some family research for us... More

We did the Matera walking tour with our guide Dora Cappiello. Wonderful lady with excellent english skills. She escorted us to all the wonderful sights of Matera, which is small enough and relatively easily to experience by foot.

Matera left us (my two sister and I) breathless - not from walking the hills - but the great beauty of the city. The stone buildings, walks and road ways, the mountains of homes, the cave museum and our wonderful Hotel Sassi. Dora, our tour guide was very knowledgeable about her city. Our visit to Matera was part of our... More

We booked our tour to include a visit to Matera and our ancestors village of Avigliano. Our guide was Dora. She was so knowledgeable about her hometown of Matera. We, my two sisters and I were treated to such wonderful sights and experiences. I can't say enough about how fascinating the Sassi area was. It was a trip of a... More

Anne led us on an individual and very enjoyable walking tour of Matera. She was very informative and pleasant company. Her English is excellent. We are pleased to recommend her. Comfortable shoes are a good idea in this hilly town. We'd also suggest reading "Christ stopped an Eboli" which will give you some insight into this ancient town.

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

On Sunday, 19 February 2011, my family and I took a five hour walking tour of Matera with Dora of Ferula Viaggi. We had a wonderful time. 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
