This tour is a MUST DO while in Palermo! The tour guide Salvo made the entire experience one of the best days/tours we experienced on our Honeymoon. He was a native from Palermo, and had so much inside information about the city and the Italian culture. We absolutely loved it. I recommend this tour as a must do while you are in Palermo. It allows you to see the whole city in one swoop!
A Highly reccommended Tour in Palermo, I would suggest getting in on Day 1 of your stay, as it will set you up for the remainder of your stay. The Tour includes walking all around the back street markets and also historical sites of significance. Our guide was terrific and she obviously had a great rapport with many of the street vendors. We tried many of the Palermo delights which even included a picnic in a backstreet Taverna with some of the locals trying the local brew. This is the MUST DO tour of Palermo.
Great tour! Marco was very engaging and made the tour very interesting, plus the food was great.
Very enjoyable and informative. Marco was entertaining and an excellent guide.
An amazing variety of street food that perhaps we wouldn't have tried otherwise. My husband is now having withdrawal symptoms as he went on to have arranchine every lunch time for the following week .My favourite was the English soup ice cream in a bun ! Marco was wonderful and it different Gave us the confidence to try more street food later.
We really enjoyed our tour. The food was delicious and our excellent tour guide, Marco, who is obviously passionate about his city,
gave us an invaluable insight into daily life in Palermo.
Thanks Marco for a great morning.
Amazing! Marco was awesome! So knowledgeable about not only Sicilian street food but also liked the fact that he gave us some history facts along the way. Oh and if you're a vegetarian just let him know ahead of time.
This tour on our first morning in Palermo was a wonderful introduction to the lifestyle of Palermitans. It was not only about food but about history and local character. Salvatore was like a friend, so learned and well informed: we felt very privileged to have him as our guide! Be sure to come on an empty stomach! Highly recommended
The meeting place was easy to find and Marco, our guide, was super friendly with a great sense of humour. He made everyone in our group feel included and special. We were very pleased we had booked this tour as it is a smallish group. Our guide was very knowledgeable and encouraging in the sampling of some of the more unusual street foods. He also showed great tact and people skill when having to deal with a disruptive outsider. We had plenty to eat and learnt a great deal about the history of the market and the foods. We would recommend this tour.
Excellent guide, excellent locations, a truly memorable experience. The highlight of our trip!
Amazing tour with an amazing guide! Very friendly and became a friend if the group. Took us around the markets with passion making us all thoroughly enjoy the food and his energy! 5 stars fro streaty food tour with Marco!!!
One of the highlights of our trip. Fun, informative and a great way to orient yourself to Palermo. Definitely recommend. Marco was a fantastic guide with lots of energy and information. We loved it!!
Amazing and delicious! Our tour guide was very experienced and never rushed us anywhere. I highly recommend this tour.
This tour was so much fun and we ate quite a variety of food. The quality of food was amazing, too--coldest beer I and #39;ve ever had at the bar we visited, best cannoli ever!! Loved the check off list we had. Marco was our guide and you can tell he enjoys his job. I highly recommend this tour.
We booked this tour 7 months prior to our arrival because we wanted it to be on my husband's Steve 65th birthday. We requested Marco as our guide we read the fabulous reviews he received and if possible to celebrate the birthday during the tour somehow. First request answered. Marco is a wonderful guide who is so passionate about the markets we visited, the food we tasted, the history of Palermo and the people we met during this street food walking tour. He loves what he does and it shows throughout. Second request answered. Marco put Steve front and center with several food stands we visited and it became a party for all on the tour. The personal highlight for me was the birthday drink. They made this drink filled with several ingredients no alcohol, put a large tray under it that he had to drink over it. Then after countdown 1-2-3 they added baking soda which made the drink explode. Steve had to drink it. Everyone was rooting him on to drink it down without spilling any. Marco stood there in disbelief because he has never seen this before. Steve drank actually chugged the entire drink without a drop spilled, turned around to the crowd, bowed and then let out a belch that the people in Rome heard. Thank you Marco for a fantastic tour highlighted with great birthday memories.
There were only two of us on the day that Alessandra took us around Palermo, so it was a brilliantly personal tour of the local markets and street food. I loved it - especially the visit to a tiny bar where we got to meet the locals. Don't miss this tour if you are in Palermo.
This tour was our favorite- everything about it was top notch!!!
Fantastic tour! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the local area, history and food. She took us to places that we would not otherwise have been to, such as a local tavern. All the food was delicious spleen sandwich aside!. The tour was a great way to see the area and was a comfortable pace for young and older people. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
We had a fantastic food walking tour with Marco. He was funny and very knowledgeable with lots of information and anecdotes along the way. We had seen him in a recent Rick Stein UK chef programme in the UK and were delighted to get the same person to take us round.
There was lots of street food to try at interesting stops in the markets washed down by a couple of drinks in a local bar.
I can't recommend this too highly - in fact it's a MUST when you visit Palermo. Much better than the culture for me!

Completely relaxing, full of the local tasting and interesting stories and culture flavor. Our guide Marco is super great, funny, knowledgeable, and engaged everyone in his telling stories, making the tour around the town really entertaining. It is definitely the highlight of my stay in Palermo.
