Tour that I recommend to everyone, Matera deserves a guide to better understand what you can admire, and having it in the place as it was with Adriano who lives with his family in a stone was truly a pleasure. Adriano transmitted with emotion and great pride that I share how Matera was and how it is today, which were the passages in the history of a territory so important for the center of the Mediterranean where it is located. Thanks again Adriano and your proposal which deserves to be lived.

Visit managed very well. Excellent and perfect guide Andrea Moselli. Prepared, very good at creating interest for each area visited, great ability to manage the group. Area of organizational improvement: in the message with the info concerning the meeting point for the departure of the tour, a different name was indicated compared to the point itself (Infosassi instead of MateraInfo).
