What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The first view of Matera old town from the Sassi Hotel - this town is a hidden jewel. The wildflowers of the area which has not been subject to herbicides. Finding out the making pasta by hand is really quite difficult!

What did you think of your group leader?

Angelo was knowledgeable and friendly but perhaps needed to anticipate the questions of the group. This he will learn as he deals with further groups. Good at getting consensus in the group and arranging meals together etc. 

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Not really - the trip fulfils the description in the brochure. 

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Having Susie as the observer from Exodus was an added bonus! It is comforting to know that this is company policy to send an observer on the first trip and she helped the group leader improve the quality of the experience.
