We were not rushed and had time to take plenty of pictures and choose the places we wanted to go. She gave us some great... More

We are 'cultural tourists' everywhere we go, and always seek educated knowledgeable guides for our tours. Antonio Manicone led us through Matera and we were extremely pleased. He is first class in every way and we endorse him should you want detailed descriptions. Thanks Antonio!!

We were lucky enough to have Theresa Barbaro as our guide today in Matera. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the city was wonderful. The fact that she has lives here and her family has made it all the more interesting. Don't come to Matera without doing a tour as it gives you an appreciation of the city. The tour is... More

Antonio Manicone accommodated us at quite short notice and was a wonderful guide for the Sassi. We learnt so much more than we would have just wandering around by ourselves with a guide book. He speaks excellent English, was generous with his time, extremely knowledgeable and gave us choices about what to see rather than just a packaged tour. He... More

Marta was our guide, walking us through this World Heritage site. We started in purgatory, rather the church named after that place, in the baroque section of the city. Her explanations were complete, knowledgeable and maintained our fascination in what we were seeing. She highlighted what was in front of us and pointing out the unnoticeable. She then took us...

The tour covered the important parts of the town and the guide gave us valuable tips on what to see around town and how to get there. she... More

Did the morning two hour tour. We arrived the pervious day and realised how much of detail we had missed and would have but for the tour. Theresa spoke good English and took us around highliting the facets of Matera and gave us a lot of good precise information. She started on time and we ended on time. Would surely... More

If you need someone open minded who love and know Matera you can stop searching the web. WIth Marta you can plan your visit exactly as you need. Whatever you would like to explore - form history to local food, she is the proper person. Napisze również dla rodaków, że Marta mówi po polsku i jej usługa jest warta rozsądnie... More

We also were advised to take a tour of this wonderful and unique town. It would be so easy to miss the detail and context. We booked this tour and enjoyed Marta's company for three hours around the historic sights of Matera. She was a delightfully enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. Brilliant!
