Excellt Opportunity to Learn about the food in Catania

Excellent informative tour hosted by Ana. There were only 2 of us on the tour so obviously that allowed Ana to give us her full attention. It was also a beautiful warm sunny day in February. The choices of venues were excellent

Disappointed....

The two young ladies that were our guides, were charming. I have been on many Food Tours throughout Sicily and Italy. I am sorry to say this was not one of the best. I understand it is not Rome, but the food presentations were truly poor.

Great way to start your holiday

We love food tours and this one did not disappoint. Anna was very informative and passionate about the food of Catania and helped us to get our bearings on our first day. Thank you Anna, highly recommended

OUr guide, Ana, was very knowledgeable and personable throughout. There were only 7 of us plus Ana and everyone got on and shared info etc. My husband and I have holidayed in Italy and Sicily for years now and love food tours but this one is the best we have ever been on. We even went back to two of the places afterwards during the remainder of our stay in Catania. Different foods and drinks tried - all very good quality. Definitely would recomend this tour.

Interesting, informative and great fun - excellent tour guide Ana ( the tour was in English but she was fluent in many European languages as well) a local born & bred - enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about the long history of the city its culture & food. Eating in the food markets , trying local wine and soft drinks. Just don’t have breakfast first!

Good idea but not gastronomic!

Coming from a cruise liner we had booked and completed a number of old city tours. We were especially looking forward to the street food experience as this was a first, BUT we were in a group with 30 which is double the size of the other tours, and although we asked to be with an English guide four non English speakers were included. The guide Anna did her best, but the large group did not help organisation and timing of food or getting around the streets. Unfortunately this was not a great experience, this concept could work with better planning and attention to what has been offered. It was also unfortunate to have very negative people in the group that complained about everything! One plus, the food we tasted was very fresh and tasty.

Bad experience

Guide seemed overwhelmed with group siza. She went way too fast and without a flag or headphones she lost our group at the stairs. I doubt that she even missed six of us as she never counted

Variety of local food spots accompanied by the fair tour guide

Really enjoyed the itinerary and selection of spots/ tastings. Was really nice food-wise. Guide I would say was very experienced from historical perspective, however, food knowledge and communication-wise did expect a little bit more from the guide. Overall, the feedback is definitely positive and worth, but some things can be improved from the guide.

We were met by our host Anna and we were very lucky to be the only ones on that particular tour as it became our own 'private' tour with just my husband and I. Anna had advised that the previous day there had been 8 people! We visited the fish market which is certainly a sight to behold! Anna was very informative and her English is excellent and she was very happy & knowledgeable to answer any questions we had. We would certainly recommend this tour as it's a good way also to become aware of your surroundings and also you end up surprisingly full with all the nibbles that you try along the route!
