A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Our charming and knowledgeable guide, Salvo created a connection between us and Palermo, we met his friends as we moved around and felt welcomed and at home. We were greeted with smiles everywhere. The drinks were good, the food varied, interesting and it added up to almost too much. We had a wonderful evening and recommend it unreservedly.

I always do a food tour when I arrive to a new city. It’s so helpful to have locals give the ins and outs/do’s and don’ts while eating local fare. Angelo was wonderful! Super knowledgeable, personable and fun. I had the best arancina of my life and could not recommend Palermo or the food tour more highly.

A great food tour of Palermo - markets, tastings, and also some local history and stories. Our guide Raffa had so much passion and enthusiasm so that even with some bad weather halfway through the tour, it was still a great day.

Great tour through Palermo you get shown everything and you can taste the local specialties... And you also get shown the city!

Angelo was a very passionate guide about the food and culture of Palermo
