"Share with us your passions"
The company was conceived at the beginning of 2017 from the idea and the desire of two business and life partners, Angelo and Simona, stemming from their passion for hospitality and being at the service of their guests.
Thus, was born "Mate in Travel”, an incoming agency specializing in the creation of tailor-made experiential trips to Matera and the entire Basilicata region, as well as to nearby Puglia.
As the very meaning of the brand "Mate in Travel" expresses, our philosophy is to be good travelling companions, and with our reliability and professionalism, we will accompany our guests throughout their journey. Our specialization is the creation of personalized itineraries through tours which include different passions: wine and food, arts and culture, photography and wellness.
Our Mission is to excite the visitors using the beauty of our territory and the passion for what we do while maintaining the values of courtesy and professionalism and we believe this is what makes us stand out.
