Gianluca is a very knowledgeable and interesting guide. He paced our tour perfectly. We are so happy we decided to use a guide for this venue and we are extremely happy it was Gianluca. He is not only a fantastic tour leader, he is a patient and understanding person whom you come to like as a friend as well. And his English is nearly impeccable, another plus!

this is the time to visit matera, and there is no better way than by spending your time with gianluca; he is patient&kind&insightful&intuitive&knowledgeable, and offers a rare opportunity to see the 'sassi' by sunset from across the canyon; a view which is a must, and which will leave an imprint in your mind which cements the very experience&energies&inconceivability of matera...we spent 3ish hours with gianluca in the 'sassi', and it was a lovely pace and perfectly inclusive enough...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lindy! Very nice of you...I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour and the time spent together.

Gianluca was an excellent guide, and made our experience in Matera very special. We did a long walk around the old city, seeing it from many angles. Gianluca explained the history of the town, and gave us good information about the sites we visited. He also drove us to the other side of the ravine for a spectacular view of the sassi. Thank you very much, Gianluca!
