Since I started to travel around the world, I realized that travelling is not a special and unique experience unless you don't meet local people, sharing with them smiles and vibes! Sometimes coming back home with pictures of monuments, churches or amazing landscapes is not enough! Many years later maybe you forget it, but you will never forget an encounter and its emotions! Why I'm talking about it? Because when I started to meet foreign people in my town, Molfetta, and when I started to be a tour guide in my region, Apulia, my task was clear: I didn't want to offer just a description of a sightseeing, but above all, an authentic immersion in our local traditions, legends and food, in order to be a local authentic culture intermediator between foreign travelers and the welcoming people of Apulia.
I don't want to show you only our typical dishes but I definitely want to invite you to come with me to the market: you will touch, taste and smell our products, like mozzarella cheese or "burrata", meanwhile you will talk with the local person who made it!
Of course, you will have time to take picture of Romanesque church, or of ours secular olives trees listening to my storytelling about that and you won't flight back home without the memories of a local' s smiles and vibes :)
See you soon!
A Recent Review of this guide
I cant thank Giovanna for the terrific time I had in Matera. She is just perfect! A real sister and a friend. I loved her! She made me discover the true history of Matera. I dont usually take tour guides in my trips to Italy but I am thankful to find Giovanna by chance. She is one of a kind and someone you will never forget. I travel to Italy all the time and this is the best trip ever (I really mean it) was very enjoyable and energetic; we had good talks and so much fun together. Giovanna is a 10 stars!
