We spent a wonderful 4 hours being enlightened by the wonders of Matera by Alessandro, who had spent much of his childhood in and around the Sassi. His knowledge and ability to deliver information in an interesting and engaging fashion is impressive, so much so, it's hard to believe that English is not his first language. His warm personality and humour made us wish we'd booked him as a food and wine tour guide, but we will save that excursion for our next trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot my kiwi friends :-) Despite the rain and the short availlable time we managed to visit the must to see in Matera. I'm looking forward to be your guide in some culinary tours in Puglia in the next future.
