The tour was fantastic! It turned out to be a customized private tour of an outstanding value during which I had several firsts for me including tasting Figgie the India, visiting the convent confectionery, and visiting a mosque converted to a Christian site, as well as tasting some unique Sicilian treats from the confectionery. So this was a tourist sites as well as the food tour which I really appreciated. Salvator also provided many insightful recommendations of places to eat and visit in follow up. Our three hours went very quickly and Salvator did manage to tire me out by the end which is unusual for me! I highly recommend the store given by Salvator.

A tour with charm

Dominik got in touch with us immediately after booking to introduce himself and to arrange pick-up at the hotel. That worked very well and he showed us his city in perfect sunshine. We asked a lot about the country and its people, he responded very pleasantly and knew a lot to report. Certainly you shouldn't expect a tour that is steeped in history from a local, but a tour with charm, heart and many small highlights. Well done, thank you Dominik

It was amazing and it exceeded my expectations!!!

My tour guide was amazing. My time in Sicily was limited and I had a rather ambitions list of attractions to explore. She called me the day before of the tour to ask my about my preferences and she planned a schedule that covered all the things that I wanted to see. She even offered to use her scooter and she took me to amazing sites. She made me feel very comfortable and I had a great time with her. I strongly recommend her.
