Gianluca was an excellent guide in our trip to Matera and, later, to Castelmezzano. He was thoughtful of my limitations in climbing many stairs and found a way to see all there is to see in Matera without any problems on my part. He recommended an excellent restaurant in Bari too! I highly recommend him for any tours based out of the Bari area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Peter! I’m glad you enjoyed the tour and time spent together. And it’s been a pleasure to recommend you a local restaurant, one of the typical places where we “locals” go. You’re a nice person and a great traveler. Greetings from Puglia!

A great day with Gianluca. Starting in Bari, we headed west to Castelmezzano. But beforehand, he detoured us to devour the best foccacia we have ever experienced in Altamura. A wonderful lunch in Castelmezzano, especially a chickpea and orecchiette dish, very local. Throughout the day, he provided us with local stories, historical context, and attended to any requests. The day ended when he dropped us off in Matera. Excellent guide, great personality, highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David! I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour and the day spent together. It was a great day to me too, you're very nice people and great travelers. A big hug to you all. Greetings from Puglia!

Gianluca is a fantastic guide! It was very easy to communicate with him to arrange the details of pick up (with luggage) for the start of the tour and transfer to our second hotel afterwards. The time keeping was perfect and Gianluca's English is great. We saw some amazing sights on the tour; Matera is a fascinating and unique place to visit. We would never have known about Castelmezzano which was beautiful. We can definitely recommend Gianluca and his tour for a wonderful day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Eileen! I’m glad you liked the tour of amazing Matera and Castelmezzano, a lovely village off the beaten paths. I had a wonderful time with you, your husband and your son...you’re very nice people and great travelers. Greetings from Puglia!
We spent a most enjoyable, interesting and educational day with Gianluca G. This tour exceeded our expectations and we heartily recommend using this charming tour guide. The highlight of our tour was the visit to Castelmezzano.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Neil and Lorraine! I'm so glad you enjoyed our tour of Matera and the amazing Castelmezzano. I really enjoyed your company and time spent together, you're very nice people and great travelers. A big hug. Ciao!
We loved our day with Gianluca. He was highly responsive throughout, from first enquiry to the day of our tour. On the day, he was punctual, flexible, and happy to adapt plans to suit us. He is knowledgeable, communicates well, and is a genuine, honest, engaging and likeable person with a strong customer service ethos and sense Dl humour. He picked us up fromBari Airport to take us Matera, via Castelmezzano and the Flight of Angels. Very good value for money. We would book him again without hesitation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tracey! I’m so glad you enjoyed the tour and time spent together in the amazing Matera and Castelmezzano. I’ve been more than happy ti adapt plans, and give you the opportunity to experience the “Flight of Angels”...you’ll remember it forever. You’re very nice people and great travelers. A big hug to you and Milla. Ciao!
What a wonderful day with Gianluca. Gianluca took me to many views and experiences of Matera Sassi, that you would not generally get to see on a normal tour. I loved Castelmezzano, what a beautiful little town. This has been a very special day. Thanks to Gianluca!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sylvia! I’m so glad you enjoyed the tour of Matera and its amazing Sassi, as well as Castelmezzano...it’s not without reason that has been listed as “one of the most beautiful places of the world you’ve never heard of” You’re a very nice person and a great traveler. A big hug. Ciao!

We hired Gianluca in May 2018 (sorry this is delayed, we've been traveling a lot!). He was all professionalism, responded very quickly, easy to communicate and interact with, very flexible. We had a very grand day (we had him pick us up in Matera and tour Castelmezzano and Pietrapertosa, which we could not have done otherwise). Highly recommend his tours. We would have booked him more days, but alas, he was booked for our other days already 3 months in advance! Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Martha! I'm glad you enjoyed the tour, I'll remember with pleasure the day spent together. You're very nice people and great travelers. A big hug from your friend Gianluca. Greetings from Puglia!
Really lovely tour. 5 star
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mario, you are 5 star travelers! Greetings from Puglia!
