Youth in action!

This was a fascinating tour. Our guide, Valeria, was knowledgeable, friendly, and patient with the many questions from the group. You get to know and appreciate the brave work of the people of Palermo, especially its youth, while walking leasurely along the beautiful city. A morning well spent.

Brilliant - so worth it!
Lynsey_W, Nov 2022
Totally mesmerised by the story and storytelling. I had read good reviews online before but genuinely enjoyed every single section of this tour! So interesting and emotive from the ‘horses mouth’ as they say. Would recommend to anyone and can’t wait to tell people the information I’ve learnt!

Thank you so much!
No mafia- well your your time!
Denise_P, Oct 2022
Our guide, Stefano, was so knowledgeable and passionate . I learned so much about the mafia, the history, and also about the great work, no mafia is doing. It was fascinating and highly recommended!!

Thank you Denise!
A waste of time
Anne_S, Oct 2022
Nothing, the guide could have made this a very interesting experience if he condensed his talk and stopped continually repeating himself like we were some nitwits. He made us stand for more then half an hour while he continued to constantly repeat himself. It’s really a great way to quickly lose the interests of the tourists who paid quite a bit of money for excellent information about the fight against the Mafia that could have been delivered in less than half the time.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thanks for your opinion Anne, we will try to improve this aspect.
No Fear

Fabulous and Unique Tour of Palermo
Sandra_S, Jun 2022
What a memorable experience! Valeria was one of the best guides I have have had, and I travel quite a bit. She was knowledgeable, passionate about her city, and a simply a delightful human. By the tour’s end she accomplished her mission- we all got a glimpse of the vibe of Palermo and it’s current struggles and triumphs.
Our tour guide was very...
Kate_L, May 2022
Our tour guide was very knowledgable and informative and open to answering all questions. Saw parts of Palermo that wouldn’t have passed / known the history of on our own. But beware the tour TOOK FOUR HOURS. Plan accordingly because I was not aware. Would benefit from having a more structured plan as it felt like a lot of rambling at points.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hello, We are really sorry that the tour lasted so long: although we know there could be so many thing to share, time is very important for a good experience, and travellers have their own plans that we need to respect. Thank you for sharing!
Terre_L, May 2022
The guide was very informative. But too much standing and her talking. Repeating the same stuff over and over again. Not moving fast enough from place to place. 3 hours is way to long . Should be 2 hours. For the most part boring. Sorry!

Glimpse of the legacy of la Casa Nostra.

Tour guide was informed, passionate, and spoke excellent English. Group of 6 people a good size! Palace of Justice was powerful historical experience.
Wonderful tour

Experienced guide, good compact tour through Palermo’s history of the mafia and the fight against it.
Swetlana_H, Oct 2021
Linda is a friendly and experienced guide. The tour was educative and compact to get a good overview about the topic (mafia’s influence on the city and the society and the fight of the citizens’ against it). We enjoyed the information, the pace of the tour and Linda as guide. We would recommend the tour to visitors who are the first time in Palermo.
Do it!
Heinz_K, Aug 2021

Informative and Thorough
Lauren_L, Jul 2021
Very informative tour and we learned a lot, however a little slow paced (aka 30 mins talking per stop).
Glacial paced walking tour
Paul_S, Feb 2020
Probably because it was out of peak season but the tour was painfully slow paced as the guide had to do the Italian tour and English tour in one.After sticking with it for an hour and 40 minutes and only just getting to the 2nd stop I eventually gave up and left and got on with my day!Guide was ok if a little dry.
