Tour: #149438, Matera (the European capital of the culture 2019), Matera, Basilicata, Italy    
Date: Oct 16/17

Gianluca spared no effort to show us as much as possible, providing a walking tour around Matera and then a car tour to the Dolomiti Lucane and Castelmezzano. We are a fit older couple, but Gianluca made sure that we didn't have to exceed our limitation. One example is the tuk-tuk he organised for us on the spot for one of the longer uphill journeys in Matera. He was very generous with his time and made our short stay very satisfying.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elizabeth! I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour of Matera and Dolomiti Lucane, and the lovely village of Castelmezzano. Above all, I'm glad you appreciated my efforts to show you everything in the most comfortable way for you and Joe. I'll keep nice memories of the two days spent together and your company, you're very nice people and great travelers. A big hug and...greetings from Puglia!

Had a great day with Gianluca. We spent most of the day touring Matera, then prior to returning us to La Cattedrale B&B in Monopoli he was willing to make a stop at Polignano a Mare. Gianluca was very personable, had extensive knowledge of sights seen, and was more than willing to accommodate all of our wishes. As a side note, he spoke English very well. Would have no problem using him again, when I return to Puglia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Anthony! Very nice of you...I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour and time spent together visiting Matera, and I'm glad you appreciated the stop at amazing Polignano a Mare. You're very nice people and great travelers, hope to meet again in the future. A big hug to you, your wife and your sister. Greetings from Puglia!

Gianluca went out of his way to make sure that our tour was informative and fun. He paced the tour to accommodate 3 "mature" friends pausing for questions and information so we could catch our breath(:. We would recommend Gianluca highly. Thank you Gianluca!

Gianluca is a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who gave us a first-rate tour of Matera and the Sassi. His English is excellent and he is well versed in the history and culture of Basilicata and Apulia. He was thoughtful and considerate in agreeing to reschedule the tour to avoid heavy rain. We recommend him highly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr Coleman....very nice of you! I'm so glad you've been able to enjoy Matera. A so short stay and heavy rain...that's why I've rescheduled the tour with pleasure, we had a lovely walk up and down Matera and its "Sassi" You deserved to enjoy in full the unique feelings that this town transmits...I'm happy you'll keep a nice memory of it, you're nice people and good travelers. A big hug to you and your wife. Greetings from Puglia!

I would rate Gialuca with five stars out of five. He was knowledgable, courteous, and patient with the elderly and a young child. His enthusiasm for the uniqueness of the sassi of Matera rubbed off on us, and made the day memorable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr Mallano....very kind of you! I'm so glad you've enjoyed Matera and "tasted" the special feeling that this town unique in the world can transmit. It happens to me too, I always feel a special feeling when I'm in Matera...I know it very well but it amazes me every time. A big hug to you all…you've a new friend here! Greetings from Puglia!
