Excellent walking tour of Matera. Incredibly informative and entertaining way to hear about the history of this interesting city from a local. Matera is a fascinating city but without a guide, we just would’ve wandered with no idea what we were looking at. 100% recommended!

Abbiamo fatto un tour a piedi con Marinella, guida esperta,appassionata del mestiere, simpatica e sorridente. In poco tempo ci ha fatto cogliere l'essenza della città e si è anche trattenuta più a lungo pur di spiegarci meglio alcuni aspetti di Matera. Consigliatissimo.

Matera è una bellissima città storica, che merita uno speciale approfondimento... Angela, guida giovane e molto preparata, ha saputo accompagnarci negli angoli più particolari e tipici, arricchendoci con le sue conoscenze e soddisfando ogni nostra domanda. Il tour privato è un’ottima scelta, super consigliato!
