This was a fascinating tour. We loved our tour guide. He was so knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in learning the history of Matera and the caves.

Beautiful experience especially thanks to the talented guide Antonia, who with her preparation, friendliness and a lot of passion, has been able to make this experience unforgettable

Very well prepared in all fields. From the history of the Sassi, to the traditions, to the curiosities, up to the art of the rock churches, a wonderful experience.
