We chose the 6 pm excursion, so at the end we also saw the sunset on the stones of Matera, a splendid thing. The tour is very nice, with panoramic views, rock churches (from the outside, but you knew they were not open) and full of information on geology, archeology, history, botany and curiosities (excellent Francesco, the guide). Convenient shuttle transfer from the center of Matera. Highly recommended!

Beautiful experience, magical and suggestive. To be recommended and above all to be done with the guide Gianni, an attentive environmentalist and historian. It involves you in any topic and the enthusiasm with which it describes the area is contagious ... The sunset in front of the Sassi is spectacular ... Go there and you will be captivated!

Very interesting tour and engaging and knowledgeable guide. The only thing to note is that the name of the tour "tour of the rock churches" is not true because we have only seen one and from the outside. The title and description of the tour were not entirely realistic. We saw more ... beautiful but more
