Amazing local guide

It was an excellent experience all round. I normally like a quick guide on the first day to get properly orientated and see what I would like to return and explore in more detail. This option was great because we could choose when it would start, how long we wanted and it was reasonably priced when most other private tours are v costly unless you are a big group. We had a real local person and in our case Antonella was superb - she went way beyond what we expected - we received an email before the tour date asking if there was anything speicific, we sped round the city centre in 2 hours, she pointed out places of interest incl food choices, she was so helpful in so many ways and it was a great warm welcome. It isnt a type of tour which is heavy on history, dates & info but it did exactly what I wanted which was get a feel for the city to explore more later.

Antonella was a spectacular guide for this city. As a resident she knew all of the wonders of Catania. After the tour, my wife wanted to purchase baking pans that cannot be found in the USA. Antonella knew where to purchase them and took us there. A great day.
