I had lovely “discovery-Bergamo” time with Matteo. He is a great guide and found a time for me on Monday. Which made it to be a private tour. The tour was great and I got to know Bergamo better: lots of nice curiosities about the city and traditions. I learnt a lot. I’ve also had great food recommendations, which were just top! Thank you for having time for me and making me discover your city! It has been real pleasure to walk with you☺️

Emanuele 10/20/2020

I would like to spend some words to speak about the walking tour organised by Matteo. First of all, the knowledge of Matteo about his city is astonishing. He told us a lot of anectodes related to hidden places of Bergamo Città Alta, as only a local person is capable of! He transmitted us his passion about his city and the history related to it, explaining all the concepts very clearly and professionally. Finally, at last but not the least, he is a really enjoyable person! We really spent a good Sunday afternoon with him and we went back home with a bunch of new stories and concepts about Bergamo. 100% recommended!

Response from Matteo
Thank you Emanuele for your words! As I told you, I love my hometown and I love to share stories! I'm very happy that you enjoyed the tour ! Wish you the best!

We loved Mateo! He’s a lovely guy, great tour leader and very knowledgeable about his home town. He showed us secret spots and details that we would have never found on our own. He also gave us a great recommendation for lunch, dinner and ice cream. Can’t recommend him highly enough!

Response from Matteo
Hey Hannah, thank you a lot! I hope you enjoyed our delicious dishes and the legends of magnificent Bergamo! Wish you the best!

Paolo 10/07/2020

We had a wonderful tour with Matteo. His explanations were very accurate and full of interesting details that we would have never known about, by just reading a guidebook. He was very passionate and very enthusiastic in showing us around his wonderful city. We also appreciated that he was very flexible about time and that we had the opportunity to have a tour also during the week. We definitely recommend a tour with him.

Response from Matteo
Thank you Paolo! I had a lot of fun with you and I hope you can remember the stories of Bergamo for a long time (and also the delicious typical dishes :D)! Wish you the best!
