Did not happen as cancelled 5 min before time due as we were waiting for guide
, May 2019
This walk was booked 3 months in advance. It took a lot of phone calls and emails to get the local guide organisation to agree a meeting point (our hotel). Viator was asked to help but were unable to do so. Therefore I was not happy when the activity was cancelled 5 minutes before the due meeting time. I will not go through Viator again as they were helpless. I would also urge anyone organising anything in the region/country concerned to get their hotel to do so for them. We learnt the hard way as the 3 activities we organised via Viator were fraught with problems. In the end it was the hotel staff who saved our days in Matera and made sure we had a great time.

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!

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.
