The guide Daniela was excellent

I am perplexed that the guide had not had precise information on the tour requested by us: he knew that we had chosen a tour of the Cathedral, 4 songs and markets of Vucciria and Ballaro '!! Fortunately, he then performed what we requested in an excellent manner and with great availability
