5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2017

This is an excellent tour including access to several rupestrian churches that are closed unless you have a guide, and ours was fantastic. Cosimo has spent most of his life in Matera, and knows just about everything about the city, the park, plants and animals, geology and geography, architecture, archaeology, local politics, and the history of the area. He is a wonderful guide and resource, and we feel lucky to have spent a few hours with him, climbing around in the rocks and learning about Matera. This tour is genuinely worthwhile and we had an excellent experience.
