Luca made it easy. He worked with us on dates, times, length and itinerary to make a perfect tour for the 4 of us. Angela was our tour guide. She was timely, informative and interesting. We saw a lot and learned a lot! I highly recommend Guide Matera!

We took a 2 hour tour of the Sassi in Matera with Marta and it was excellent - she answered all of our questions and had tons of great information and insight into the area. 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 recommendations for things to do on our own, restaurants, etc. A guided tour is definitely a must in Matera to understand more of the history, and Marta did an excellent job.

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 cheap compared to other cities... Don't miss out and ask for Therese a lovely guide. Thank you

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 was also very reasonable. Finding information in Matera is not easy for a non Italian speaker. The information kiosks are privately run and have their own guides many of whom have very limited English and are expensive. We found Antonio through Trip Advisor and were very glad we did. He is very highly recommended. His wife does the Italian tours
