What other guests say about our tours and locals
A great overview or Palermo
"Luca met us at the small bar restaurant where we just tried some arancini and we started the tour from there. He took us through amazing streets of Palermo, explaining what is like to be a Sicilian and the problems Sicilians faced throughout the history being ruled by so many different rulers and omg what a multi layered (literally) history that is. I am so impressed by this city, its architecture, churches, thin balconies :). So many churches. So many! Since it was our lucky day and quite a few churches were open he took us inside of some and they are so magnificent. Luca has many interesting stories to tell and he took us also into the back streets to show more of the off beaten path places, some that would be dangerous to walk through some 30 years ago. He showed us good bars and restaurants to go to, where to get the best ice cream and cannoli, how to navigate the streets and orientate between the mountains and the sea. I can warmly recommend Luca to pick as your guide through this magnificent city."MihaAbout local LucaPalermo, February 23, 2024
"We were absolutely amazed by the tour Karolina had us made! She’s so kind and cheerful…she immediately made us feel at ease! She’s well prepared and very well knows also the most hidden spots. Grazie Karolina!! Elisabetta and Claudio"ClaudioAbout local KarolinaPalermo, December 30, 2023
Very friendly, kind, and knowledgable
"Luca was an amazing guide and really made our trip to Palermo special. He took us off the beaten path and to lots of secret spots that you wouldn't see on your typical tours. We covered so much in such a short amount of time! You can tell he's super knowledgable about Palermo and its history. He also gave us further guidance about restaurants and bars that were worth checking out. Luca was super kind and friendly, and we'd recommend his tour to any one!"CatAbout local LucaPalermo, December 29, 2023
Passioned Foody with historical insights
"We had a great time with Michelangelo. He showed us not only the well known markets but also some hidden places with real street food. Michelangelo had a flexible schedule and it was always possible to try something in case we wanted to. His knowledge about the city and its history was very interesting. Some personal experiences and stories of him made the tour even more memorable. I highly recommend a tour with him!"Alina-NaomiAbout local MichelangeloPalermo, December 25, 2023

"We did drinks and bites tour with Salvatore and had a great time! He told us little tidbits about Palermo’s sites we wouldn’t have known on our own. Nice to have a local’s perspective- highly recommend! Thanks! "Amanda About local SalvatorePalermo, November 2, 2023
Fabio was extremly good
"We have used the services of local tour guides 3 times now and without a doubt Fabio was fantastic , best yet. His knowledge of local history and religious sites was explained in a way that it was easily understood and not too much information to take in, over a short period of time. Often one is overloaded with info that by the next day half is forgotten."HelenAbout local FabioPalermo, October 25, 2023
