I am an experienced & licensed local tour-guide for Matera/Basilicata and have been listed in Lonely Planet for almost 20 years now. I live in Matera.
Hi, I'm Amy Weideman and I would like to invite you to experience the town of Matera & its ancient Sassi neighborhoods from the unique perspective of a non-native "local" & native speaker of English.
The "Essential Walking Tour" begins with an overview of the town's fascinatingly rich & complex history. You'll discover what makes this place truly unique, as you visit some of the Sassi's historic landmarks and take in the breathtaking panoramas of one of the oldest human settlements in the world!
