This was a lovely tour and the time allocated to each area visited was perfect. The optional boat tide was refreshing and we were very lucky with the weather and our tour guide Salvatore who gave us a lot of information about the places visited and more. The bus for this tour was very new and clean and also we loved the stop on the way in Bauli.

Maria Teresa was our supurb guide through the 2 neighbourhoods of Matera. She was knowledgable, patient, kind and totally worth the drive to Matera. A++
