We booked this tour only a couple of days in advance after a different tour we had booked was cancelled. We are very glad we did! Since I had not cycled in quite a while I was worried it would be hard work for me, but the cycling was easy, some short uphill stretches but felt like we were going downhill or flat most of the time. We were also worried about the traffic in Palermo but we mostly kept to pedestrian areas on this tour and where we did cross roads Laura made sure we were safe, we felt like we were in good hands! The bikes were also well maintained and we appreciated the bottles of water and bags for the back of the bikes they provided for outer stuff. Laura was an amazing guide, very passionnate and gave us lots of information. We saw most of the main attractions in Palermo city centre (many more places than were listed on the tour page) and sampled some great street food. Laura did the tour in English for us - her English was excellent and she answered all our questions in a lot of detail. She had a great sense of humour and was very friendly. I would highly recommend this tour - we did it on our last full day in Palermo but I would recommend doing it at the beginning of your stay as Laura gave us lots of recommendations for places to see and eat and we wish we’d had more time to go to them after. We did manage to go to the Bistrot she recommended after the tour and it was some of the best, most interesting food we’d had in Sicily - grazie mille Laura!

Our tour guide, Fabrizio, was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. There were 4 of us on the tour, the perfect number to receive his personal attention.

This is not really "street food" but a tour of two markets where prearranged stops at market stalls where samples (large - don't eat a large Breakfast) given to the group - sometimes sitting at tables. We were even given a tour of a kitchen were Arinchini's were being prepared.

My wife and I had a wonderful time. we really enjoyed the host. He was very knowledge and a great sence of humor. But the best part was the food. I would highly recommend this tour to anybody who wants to enjoy the great food. .

The Sicilian pastries and ice cream are among the best in Italy, and what about the coffee, the real element of Italian culture. But how can you disentangle yourself from the huge range of bars and pastry shops that populate the city of Palermo? We have developed a process that allows for true gourmands to taste the best examples of pastry, from Sfincetta with ricotta to Setteveli cake, gelato, made with authentic raw materials without the use of industrial ingredients, and the best coffee at both the bar and coffee shop where we can take a close look at the roasting and selection of coffee that make up the blends. All of this of course, in addition to satisfying the palate and the mind thanks to the information given by the guide, will be surrounded by the beauty of Palermo’s monuments which will be introduced and explained by the guide along the way. There are about seven tastings: three pastries, an gelato, typical biscuits, a dessert wine and a coffee.
