Fabrizio was a great tour guide! He had a lot of knowledge and facts to share, even when we had questions that weren't part of the guided tour. There were also a lot of hidden gems he explained in detail that you would miss unless you had a tour guide explaining it to you. Also he recommended great places for us to eat afterwards as well!

It really was a nice tour in which we learned a lot about Palermo. The history, the food, the monuments, the markets; too much to mention came by. We even learned a few Sicilian words! At the end we were tired but fulfilled.
