We picked Vito because of the raving reviews, but for a while I thought we would not be able to get him for the tour of the Sassi di Matera that we had hoped to do. After a few unanswered emails, finally a WhatsApp call...More

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...More

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...More

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.

Very pleasant, fun and informative tour. The Ape car is very comfortable and comes with a blanket (should it be cold!). Vito is a great guide and passionate about his hometown. Highly recommended!

When we visited I wasn't well and the weather was very cold so our hotel recommended Vito because he provided a door to door service. This is the best way to get an impression of Matera because his little taxi can get right up into...More
