Wonderful full day out to Matera and Puglia winery. Gio our guide was fantastic, sharing his knowledge of Matera and Puglia. He was very good answering all my questions. Both Gio and Julian our driver were friendly and very good company for the day. We started in the town of Matera and then walked down into the old town and historic area. We had a delicious lunch at a great restaurant in the old town. The food and service were outstanding. We stopped at a winery on the way home and had a generous wine tasting of several different varieties of wine all produced on site. Thank you Gio and Julian. My husband and I had a wonderful day. Thank you for your good company and for helping us learn more about Matera, Puglia and Italy. I highly recommend this tour and Green Italy Tours.

highly recommended experience, we had the pleasure of touring the city with Francesco and the small but very nice Michelino who kept us company throughout the tour. We really appreciated the modification of the itinerary chosen ad hoc as we had just concluded a first walking tour with the guide. we will carry this magnificent memory in our hearts. good guys!!

Comfortable and usable vehicle (as it happened) even in case of rain as it is equipped with a roof and protections. Kind and nice guide. During the tour, which lasts about 40 minutes, one of the house-museums among the Sassi is also visited on foot. They accept little dogs.

Our guide Gio was fantastic. He more than exceeded our expectations. Explained historical sites in Matera and was well informed. He also took us to a fantastic winery for a tour and testing. I would highly recommend this tour.

Staff very helpful: I had the wrong day of booking but instead of giving me a joke they made me do the out anyway. Which is worth every penny
