Schedule not always respected by the guides
DIDIER_J
, Aug 2022
Take Care, the schedule are not respected on site. The visit started at 10:00 instead of 10:30 and we have been informed at 9:44. As a result We missed the visit in french and we did it in english with our daughter who does not speak this language.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
We are so sorry for this inconvenience. The schedule is always respected and when there is some change the client is always informed. In this case, our mistake, a colleague didn't inform you about this change, and then was too late.

We were booked for a 10.30am tour and arrived with 15 minutes to spare. On arrival we received a text from the tour company asking us to go to their office. We were then rushed to join another tour which had started at 10am. The tour company should have been better organised. The tour itself was informative and interesting albeit very hot (July)

Grazie a Francesca, guida competente e simpatica. Matera deve essere conosciuta nei suoi rioni, nelle sue chiese, nei suoi ipogei per essere apprezzata ancora di più.

Bellissima esperienza con Giuseppe

Ottima la nostra guida Giuseppe!!! Ci ha accompagnato rispondendo a tutte le nostre curiosità. Abbiamo potuto ascoltare la testimonianza di Eustachio, che da bambino ha vissuto in un sasso. Abbiamo potuto capire quale grande riscatto abbia vissuto Matera, da "vergogna nazionale" a capitale della cultura nel 2019!!
