Matera is a hidden gem. The local guides were informative and helpful in getting your bearings around the city. Some of the tour is not easy walking: stony pavements, uneven surfaces and ancient block paving. But the walk around the city is well worth it. A visit to the Cathedral is worth while with very early frescoes.

That tour was a waste of time and money. Ten minutes of explanations and the rest of the time we were walking by ourselves and the guide was resting

Due to the size of the red buses, some streets can't be reached. But the open bus in this sunny city is the best way to discover the Stones City.

We did 2 tours with this company. Yesterday, we went to the national park which we enjoyed but today was the city tour. We boarded the bus at 12.10pm and got off at 12.30pm to visit a cave dwelling. We then had 40mins free time to look around the Sassi (old town) before we boarded the bus again at 1.10pm to return to where we were picked up which took about 10mins. There was no commentary on the way back at all so really the whole tour lasted about 20mins. It was a complete waste of €15. Don't bother doing it.

Our guide was brilliant! The tour was only intended to be in Italian, but she was well versed in English and duplicated all the info just for us. The tour took us over the river, past the stone quarries and up to the top of the cliff overlooking the old city. Below us were the caves, occupied for centuries by the local people, right up until 1950.
