In addition to street food, we received a lot of information on all aspects of Palermo from our authentic and friendly guide Angelo, who led us through the alleys with passion. The insight into life on the market was an experience! Street food has to be imagined as very simple - probably freshly prepared - dishes. The tour was enriched by a lot of information about history, architecture and people, which was the main pleasure for us.

Atmosphere and information: great :))

We really loved our tour with Angelo, we got a very good impression of the city and learned a lot about Sicilian history - very entertaining and personal. We ate delicious meals, dived into the city and laughed a lot ... The time passed quickly. A great idea to get to know a city! Angelo, many thanks to you!

Made me see and love Palermo in a way that would have been so different without this tour and wonderful guide Angelo. He knew and cared so much about Sicily, it made you want to see and learn more. We started with the 3 hour food and history tour but decided to stay for the other 2 hour historic tour, that’s how good and interesting Angelo was. We learned so much, and we tasted fantastic food, thank you so much Angelo.
