Dora organized the trip of a lifetime - she coordinated with genealogy experts to explore where our family was from in Basilicata and set us up on tours in Naples, Pompeii, Basilicata, and Matera. We actually met distantly related family members when we visited the small village of our ancestors! In addition, Dora organized extras like the amazing wine cellar... More

For the third time already students and lecturers form Vienna have held a landscape ecology field course in Matera. Every time Mrs Dora Cappiello participated in organising the whole stay – including accommodation, excursions in the regional park, shuttle service from and to the airport of Bari, rental cars and excursions by bus. Additionally, she always provided us with help... More

I contacted Ferula Viaggi for private tours of the Sassi area of Matera as well as a day trip to the medieval city of Altamura and the mysterious Castel de. Monte. Dora guided me both times and I was impressed with her enthusiasm for the area (she is a native of Matera) as well as her wealth of information. Her... More

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our recent cycling tour which you put together. It was fantastico! A great way to see real italy at work, with back roads, all the different agricultural enterprises, and small villages. Certainly you are much more involved, than touring by car, and choosing the occasional place to stop. A masterstroke to pair... More

We booked the two-hour walking of Matera through Booking.com. Our guide Dora was exceptional in her knowledge of the history of Matera. Her English was very good and her passion for the history of the Sassi was clearly demonstrated. An added factor which made it all the more real was that her parents & parents-in-law were born here. Although it... More

They accompanied us on three days. Dora was the translator for our family visits. They also gave us a detailed history and sociology perspective of the area. They receive... More

My wife and adult son and I were in Matera the day before our bike tour and booked a private walking tour of the sassi (cave houses). The tour was truly excellent. Cosimo was our guide and his knowledge of and passion for the history of Matera was evident throughout. He really brought to life the unique history of the... More

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.
