Bruna sp? was our guide and was extremely knowledgeable about the town, and history of the region. Was not aware that this included only the Sassi portion of the Matera area. The other area on the opposite side of the valley needs to be accessed by car, separately. Fascinating story how the Sassi part of town has been occupied over the years, right up until Bruna's mother and family were moved out in the 1960's. A must see!

We had an excellent guide who gave us a full history of the Sasso caves. She was able to answer all of our questions and focused on the highlights of the area.

The guide was very pleasant but she could have had more in depth knowledge of the city. The walk was at a good pace and not too demanding for our elderly companion. The guide's knowledge of the rupestre church was excellent.
