Christina was an amazing guide, showing us some of the sights in Ortega we wouldn't have known to look for, as well as taking us to some brilliant restaurants for delicious food. She was a charming person who gave great conversation to everyone there, and I work of highly recommend the tour to anyone who really wants to see the city in the evening

Ettore was an incredible guide! Walking over the market, tasting food at Borderi and cooking together at Zen & Jonico outside with a view of the sea was a highlight of our trip to Sicily! The winetasting with Giancorlo at Zen rounded the whole experience off.

Amazing experience! Paolo and Mikto made for an excellent combination between walking and sea-faring. Both were knowledgeable, professional and fun. It was also very personalized and bespoke. Highly recommend!
