Salvatore exceeded our expectations!!
"Salvatore was an excellent guide through Palermo. He chose 3 excellent places for us to have a variety of local typical bites and delicious drinks!! Salvatore gave us so much history on Palermo as we walked through the town center. His stories were very engaging and interesting!!"TenilleAbout local SalvatorePalermo, September 2023
Great intro to Palermo!
"Karolina was a wonderful guide! Easy to communicate with before the tour and met us on time. She provided great insight into each place we visited, and stories along the way between stops. She adapted the tour as we went along. It was wonderful to stop for breakfast made by nuns, and to taste some amazing street food as we walked this beautiful city. We will be recommending Karolina to friends who plan to visit. "MichaelAbout local KarolinaPalermo, September 2023
