Greetings - We are staying in the Monopoli area in May and hope to hire a private driver to transport us to Matera for one day and return. Someone mentioned Giampiero Lentini as a private driver in the Monopoli area. Does anyone have any info about him or another driver? We will be renting a car for the week but just wanted one day of leaving the driving to someone else.
In addition, we are looking to hire a private walking tour guide in the Matera sassi for 2-3 hours that same day. I tried to reach English speaking tour guide Amy Weideman but got no reply (twice). Michele Zasa, from what appears to be the same guide company, did reply and is available. I've seen mention of Gaetano from Guida Turistica Matera. Does anyone have any info about him or another guide? We thought it would be better to hire a local Matera tour guide rather than a driver / guide from somewhere else.
I thank you in advance for any assistance. Take care.
