Lively and fun..made us see Matera in a different light. As we went up and down the Sassi, didn't feel tired as his energy was infectious. Thank you for an enlightening tour.

Really enjoyed touring Sassi di Matera, an ancient city we didn't know much about before our visit. Giorgio provided us with interesting background information and historical details in a very engaging manner. His walking tour was wonderful and we appreciated his insights which helped us understand the history of the area. This city is unique with its stone buildings and cave dwellings; we would definitely recommend a stay in Matera - especially if you can book a tour with Giorgio during your visit!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback. All the best!

An amazing place to visit with our fantastic guide Giorgio, who was full of information and interesting historical details about Matera and the Sassi. Definitely a highlight of our trip through beautiful Puglia! A "must do" for any trip in the south of Italy. Could not recommend Giorgio and Tours by Locals highly enough! Many thanks Giorgio for an enjoyable and fantastic tour , and the gelato recommendation - best ever!!

Giorgio was very accomplished with his knowledge, was easy going and friendly and adapted the tour to suit us and gave us options within the tour, such as extra visits to patricular sights if we were interested in them. We felt that we were being guided by a personal friend rather than someone unkown to us. He was very passionate about this region of Italy and there is no way that we would have known what we were looking at or where to go in the streets of old Matera. Thank you Giorgio.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mike, thank you very much for your feedback and for your time. It was a great tour. Say hello to all of your family! Ciao!

Giorgio was absolutely AMAZING! Traveling with him was like traveling with a friend who knows all of the local people, traditions, culture, and spots. He took us on an unbelievable journey off the beaten path with great sights, drinks, and food. He was professional, friendly, and always willing to go out of the way to make the tour special. He's also a great driver and made us feel safe. I would definitely tour with him again and I hope to remain in touch. 100% recommended! Grazie Giorgio!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jason, thank you for your feedback! I am honored to be the highlight of your trip and I will be very happy to meet you again, some day! All the best! Grazie!

My family and I spent a half day with Giorgio touring Matera. He did a great job of showing us the whole town and introducing us to parts of the town that aren't in the guidebook. He also was able to present the culture of the area so that we felt it was like a friend showing us around and not just a guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great introduction to Matera and the surrounding area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bruce, thank you very much for your feedback. I am very happy that you appreciate my tour. It was great! All the best for all of you!!!

Our private tour of Matera was outstanding! Georgio was an excellent guide whose deep and passionate knowledge of Matera was extraordinary. He provided not only the historical background and significance of Matera and the Sassi but also gave us insight into the culture of the region, both past and current, as a part of Italy's south. Because he is from Bari, on the coast of Puglia, Georgio was also able to provide suggestions for the rest of our trip, which was extremely helpful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Leslie, thank you very much for your feedback. It was great! All the best!

Our group had a very informational day with Giorgio. He showed up at our start site right on time and made us feel comfortable with his leadership. He answered our questions and took time to explain things clearly. He went out his way to find a lunch site for us at the end of the tour and also getting use access to Matera underground in the off-season. We really enjoyed our time with Giorgio.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comment, mister Randal! Your words are the best way to start this new season! Grazie!
