Absolutely amazing day out. Was very interesting and exciting to see and learn about parts of Palermo I would have never thought of going to or visiting as a regular tourists. The cultures of this city are so interesting and the food is a fantastic and wonderful way to see how well it’s integrated and influenced the city. Would recommend to anyone who wanted to see the true and friendly side of Palermo. Our guide Alessio (I hope that’s correct!! 😭) was so warming and welcoming and an absolute delight to follow and hear his own stories of his city. Felt so comfortable and was wonderful to have this experience.

The tour was very cool. Our guide Angelo was a great guy. There were many different specialties from Sicily. Also a lot of things that you didn't eat. I thought that was very cool. I would just suggest making another stop at the beginning. A lot of history was told, but the second stop was only after 90 minutes. The time could be optimized a bit here.

Great local knowledge, history and guide personality. Really felt a high degree of passion from the guide for food and Sicily - was a privilege to be walking the city with him. Would have been even better to get an overview of how much food we were getting & offered more vegetarian options as we went depending on preference where possible.

This tour was AMAZING! Salvo was very engaging adding little details along our entire tour and had connections with all our drops along the way. Friendly and courteous to ensure we were all accommodated

Very entertaining. Roberta was warm, refreshing, funny. We don't want to miss the three hours.
