Enjoyed this tour although I would have been happy to see more graffiti and have less talk. However, the guide was very informative and his English was very good. The tour took us down alleyways and roads that we wouldn't have know about. Interesting to hear about the background to some of the graffiti. Overall a good tour.

Stephen was great. It was a hot day and he kept us in shady areas. We enjoyed hearing about the artists and history of Palermo.

Fabulous, well versed and knowledge faultless. A must do to appreciate not just street art but how it is part of the national psyche. A genuine must do
