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

Abbiamo scelto l'escursione delle 18, quindi sul finire abbiamo visto anche il tramonto sui sassi di Matera, una cosa splendida. Molto bello il giro, con scorci panoramici, chiese rupestri (da fuori, ma si sapeva che non erano aperte) e ricco di informazioni di geologia, archeologica, storia, botanica e curiosità (ottimo Francesco, la guida). Comodo il trasferimento in navetta dal centro di Matera. Consigliatissimo!
