What people are saying about Palermo
Agrostina and Delassandro were fantastic tour guides/translators and friends. From the moment they picked us up they were friendly and engaging. They were helpful with the planned activities but also gave us the space and options to look at towns and places that we were not expecting. First we were taken to Ficuzza national park which would have been lovely to tour alone but was made 100% richer for Agrostina’s patient attention and translations. She arranged an alternative anti mafia tour which let us see the true face of Mafia influence in Corleone rather than the glorified Hollywood story, speaking to locals who were setting up resistance against Mafia bullying. Very interesting tour. Finally on our way home we were taken to Piana de Albanesi , a lovely little town with dual Italian and Albanian dialects. We were treated to THE most amazing Connolo in a fantastic cafe. Finally on our way home Agrostina helped us organise a boat trip got the following day, which was also amazing. TYX
Good tour of the city, highlighting it's history and important historical locations on both routes. We'd advise to start early as possible to take in both routes, and allow time to hop on, hop off at your preferred locations. It's a lot to take in so quickly, so bring a pen and paper to make note of locations which you'd like to revisit on route. The ticket is unlimited on both routes for 24 hours from your entry onto the tour bus. You can start at any point on the circuits convenient to you - both start/terminate at Teatro Politeama. Make note where your stop is, take note of the sign locations- they're not always clear & visible, as sometimes the bus has to stop close as possible, due to traffic/parking. If you 'Re staying a few days in Palermo - very worthwhile, it'll give you guidance to explore further. Both routes intersect at Teatro Massimo - there is good shopping and dining options within a short walk. Great history, architecture and buildings are sublime.
Great sights, great service well worth the money.
Our driver Michael is very personable and knowledgeable. The sights are well worth the money. You should be aware that you are purchasing the services of a knowledgeable driver who will get you to the sight, explain the history, and give you some tips for seeing the sight. This is not a "guided tour" which worked fine for us but might not be what you want. Our only complaint is that we didn't spend enough time at Monreale to really be able to absorb it. Otherwise the service was excellent.
Had a great day and this was a great way to see two cities in one day without a rental car. I reserved last minute and with some assistance from GetYourGuide, was able to confirm my pickup. However, it would be nice to have as a 3/4 day tour, with more time in Cefalù so you don’t have to choose between lunch, sightseeing, and the beach, arriving back in Palermo in the mid to late afternoon.
There were two routs and they were both very short, only 1 hour each. But, they were very informative and you see the main sights from the bus. Only problem was to find the initial bus stop. This mostly due to road construction. But, CitySightseeing Parlermo was not providing additional info on how the find the bus due to construction. Also the woman at the office was not helpful.
