We loved our tour and Barbara was superb. We felt well informed and like best friends by the end of our tour.

Barbara was excellent and really enjoyed the trip. It was informative and well organised although it would have been nice to spend some free time in Monreale.

Manuel was the most personable person we met. He was informative, funny and thoroughly entertaining. His English was perfect and by the end of the day we felt like family. He made us so comfortable and entertained we retained his service again. Consuela was very good and maintained our interest throughout the tour. The Catacombs were strange but fascinating and she explained everything although obviously uncomfortable in this location. In Monreale she was at ease and as well very informative. She is an expert guide but it was Manuel that was the life of the party. If you want to enjoy your time in Sicily, I highly recommend you retain Manuel who will not only entertain you but show you places you would not know to see. He is also great at suggesting local authentic restaurants where you will find real Sicilian food which is delicious.

Barbara is a brilliant guide. I'm really glad this tour was on my first day in Palermo because she gave us a fantastic introduction to the city.

An absolutely fantastic tour and our tour guide, Barbara, made this tour our favorite of our holiday. She was so friendly and had so much to tell us about all aspects of the tour - from the glorious decor of Monreale Cathedral to the unusual sights in the Catacombs. A must if you are in Palermo.

So thrilled with our experience and tour guide! Barbara was simply FABULOUS! With curbside pick-up in the crazy city of Palermo, she started the tour off with a pleasant smile and cooled off car! She is so passionate about the city and it's history we enjoyed learning from her and listening to her stories. The catacombs were interesting and a must see if you visit Palermo. The city of Monreale is lovely and quaint you feel removed from the city. The history of the monastery was very interesting and the setting provided great photo backdrops! We ended the tour with a delicious gelato or two!! Thanks to Barbara this was a highlight of our Palermo trip!
