What people are saying about Palermo

Great but communication could have been better!

I absolutely loved the trip to Etna and Taormina. Despite half of our group opting for an English-spoken guide, our driver only spoke Italian. This wasn't a problem- as a group, we managed to get by. My one criticism would be regarding the pick up time. I had to chase for confirmation of a pick up time from the host the night before and eventually was told this would be 7am. However, when I left my apartment at 7am on the day, the driver waiting outside seemed angry- saying that I'd been keeping him waiting for a whole twenty minutes prior to this. Aside from that, we had sufficient time in both areas. 2 hours in Etna, which was just enough to get the cable car to the top and return. Then we had another 2.5 hours in Taormina. I had researched a lot in trying to find the most cost effective trip to Etna from Palermo, and this was by far the best option!

Great way to get immersed in Sicilian history and food

I love doing food and history walking tours when I travel - I find they are a wonderful way to learn more about the city you are visiting and the local cuisine (and helpful to orient yourself to the city). This tour was interesting - we mostly tried the street food from one place in the Capo market (arancina, panelle (a fried chickpea batter "cake", pane con la milza (oh my this is boiled and then sauteed spleen and lung from a cow served on a soft roll with very salty cheese - I would say this is for folks who like liver or kidney), sfincione (like pizza with no cheese), crocche (a potato croquette), and cannoli. Our guide was very knowledgable - I learned that there are actually tour guide schools and our guide spent 2 years studying his curriculum. I would recommend.

Palermo 3-Hour Street Food and History Walking Tour Reviewed by Sharron, 09/28/2019

Guide was difference between a good day and a great day

Etna was natural and beautiful and a bit of a challenge scaling, but well worth the effort . Toarmina was beautiful and the Amphitheatre is a real treasure. However the was made really great due to our guide and driver, Michael. He was very friendly, informative and gave good advice and tips about both parts of the trip. He was very punctual and gave us plenty of time and notice st Rach stop. Nothing was too much trouble and his conversation was also a nice distraction . Can’t give more praise fora great experience, Thanks Michael. From the Liverpool family

Super interessant, leckeres Street Food und super sympagthischer Guide

Fabrizio is super likable and knows a lot about his home city. During the tour we tried the typical food of Palermo and learned the origin of the names of the food that partly differ to the Italian names. It was also possible to ask him about the Sicilian lifestyle and he showed us his home town from a personal point of view which was very interesting. Of course the history of this stunning city is remarkable and we highly regret that we could not spend more time there. We promissed to come back and we can really recommend the tour with Fabrizio.

Very informative walking tour with some street food as part of it

I wouldn't say this is the most comprehensive street food tour (so if you are looking for a lot of street food, this is probably middle ground). But it was very interesting walking tour also with history and nice out of the way stories about various things, with a fair amount of street food as part of it, so I would say it was a good mix of both street food and walking history tour (if that is what you are interested in, which for us was a good mix). Guide was very interesting and informed also
