Our guide Basil, was very knowledgeable about Catania. As well as taking us to some yummy places to try street food, he explained many aspects of the city, the history, architecture etc and answered all our questions thoroughly. It was a very hot day so it was lovely to finish with Granita.

This is an excellent tour which I would definitely recommend. The guide was very informative, we got to have a good look around Catania, and to try various Sicilian drinks and food as we went, the whole family enjoyed this tour.

We took this trip a day after we arrived in Catania and it was a perfect choice. Our guide, Vasile, was very kind, knowledgeable and shared a lot of interesting stories about the city and its history. We tasted some delicious food, like arancini, pecorino, olives and granita. We highly recommend it!

Basil was an amazing guide and procurer of street food. He was generous and knowledgeable and funny. He adjusted to our pace and answered lots of questions. The horse meat was delicious. You should not eat breakfast before the tour.

We took this tour in mid October and the weather was lovely It might get too hot for some folks in July/August.

It was a lovely way to see Catania which we thought was a great city and sample some really nice local food. You get to sample a lot, so come hungry. The two guides we had were very sweet and gave us some background on the history of the town which was nice. Since we were on a cruise we did not get a chance to come back and enjoy some of the areas/restaurants we saw, which was sad...would love to come back.

The walk is pretty easy, although as mentioned it might be too hot for some in the summer months.

This was a great experience. We really enjoyed trying foods we otherwise wouldn't have tried. We learned a lot about the local area. This tour is a lot of walking and isn't for people with any walking issues.
