Owner description: Around the Sassi of Matera on a classic "Ape Calessino".
Reviewed 29 June 2018

There are several 'tuc-tuc' drivers in Matera but if you want the best it really HAS to be Vito!

A local whose Grandparents lived in Matera there really isn't much he doesn't know about the city and its history.

He is professional, knowledgeable and speaks excellent English. He shows you things that you have passed but not seen and hidden areas that you would not know existed if you hadn't visited them as part of his tour. This tour one of the best you can take in Matera.

If you are visiting look out for him in the red 'tuc-tuc' you may have to book-but it really is worth it!

As a little surprise for my husband I arranged a 45 min evening tour with Vito. He arrived punctually and we wizzed around Matera in the fun Ape. We heard an insight into the fascinating history and saw the city lit up. Well worth it.

Vito was punctual, professional and really informative, bringing the tour alive (in the fun Ape) by reference to his own family history. Speaks very good English. Caves were fascinating. Highly recommended.

It was great experience to “stroll” around narrow streets of Sassi village in the small “tuc tuc” like car and having Vito telling real stories heard from his grandmother who has left in a Sassi and is still alive at 90 years. Vito has provided very interesting information about the history as well as advice on best place to eat and what to eat. And last but not least his English is pretty good.

Vito was very knowledgeable about the area and history. We took two tours with him one during the daytime and one at night. He brought us to different places and showed us tons of things.

I highly recommend him.
