We are a family of 4. We requested the guide for Matera and Giuseppe was a very professional and prepared guide. He has been able to enhance aspects of Matera and its history, little known and unusual. A tour that fully satisfied us and that we will carry in our hearts.

Mio marito ed io abbiamo preso parte ad una delle visite guidate da Giusy, la nostra guida, con partenza alle 5 del pomeriggio. Giusy è stata bravissima: ci ha raccontato storia e aneddoti legati alla città e ai sassi, portandoci anche a visitare una casa-grotta e una chiesa, dove un uomo nato nelle case-grotte ci ha raccontato la sua storia e ha cantato canti popolari, il che ha reso la visita ancora più folkloristica e coinvolgente.

Bellissimo tour. La nostra guida ( Giusy) davvero preparata sulle nozioni storiche ma anche " umane" di quella che è la storia dei sassi di Matera. Tour non faticoso nonostante la morfologia dei sassi con interessanti pause a contatto con le persone del luogo e le loro testimonianze. Consiglio di farlo alla sera per godere della Matera al tramonto e soffrire meno il caldo.
