My husband and I booked a 2 hour tour with Teresa on very short notice. She was kind enough to accept & made every effort to fit into our tight timeline. She obviously loves the city & is very knowledgeable with the facts & adds some personal elements as well. We wished we could have spent more time with her & the city of Matera. Would recommend Teresa for the tour

Four English speakers were taken on a two hour tour of Matera by Cosimo. He was a wonderful guide and had perfect English. His knowledge about his town was fantastic. His grandparents had lived in the Sassi so he had a great feeling for the hard but close communal lives were lived in this difficult landscape until the 1950s. He brought the town to life for us. I would definitely recommend doing this tour

Teresa was a great guide. She was interesting and very knowledgeable about the Sassi. Her personal stories made the place come alive.

Teresa was fantastic; great communication, on time, she knew every nook and cranny in Matera, was patient and friendly, spoke excellent English, and took us to all the best spots. I could not imagine a better experience with a guide and highly recommend her.

We booked an entire day private visit to Matera and the rock churches with Maria Teresa and it was worth every penny. Maria Teresa is a young, very friendly and native guide. Her English is great and she provided with in-depth knowledge and information based on first-hand experience of her grandparents. The visit was split in two sessions: in the morning we visited the "sassi" and the town and in the afternoon we visited the rock churches from where we enjoyed the view on the city and the layers of history. Maria Teresa also showed us a documentary on the city and of its residents that was eye-opening. We had a full experience and strongly recommend her - her passion, drive, sincerity and love for Matera will make you experience unique.
