Fabrizio and Davido made this tour interesting pointing out the historical sites as we walked around Palermo trying local delicacies. Great chat and great food including prickly pear, arancini and cannoli. This tour helped us to orientate ourselves in Palermo on our first day and we subsequently went back to some of the places to eat on an evening.

Fabrizio was a fantastic tour guide! We were in a group with two other couples and had such fun roaming the streets of Palermo eating and enjoying all the city had to offer! Very fun tour, very knowledgeable guide and would highly recommend him!

Thoroughly enjoyable tour lead by Fabrizio. Enjoyed trying all of the street food and exploring the city a bit on foot without having to worry about getting lost!

An excellent introduction to the main Palermo historical sighrs but also an outstanding and thoroughly enjoyable introduction to the market and cuisine of Sicilian food, specifically from Palermo. It was really great to have good guides - English and Italian to cater for the 2 very small groups. They were able to share their love of Palermo's history and cuisine and the food we sampled as well as thesites we visited were fantastic.

It was a great tour. I enjoyed all of the food. I wish there was more food, but this isn't a big enough issue for me to drop the star rating. Thank you to the tour guides. It was a pleasant walk. It was great that we got to see some sights on the tour as well. Definitely consider if if you are coming to Sicily

Great tour with two inhabitants of Palermo. They know a lot of the history, are very friendly and take care of their customers.

Thanks a lot for the tour through the old market. We enjoyed the taste of Palermo and the stories about the churches and the history.

A wonderful tour to get to know Palermo, its sights, culture and of course the great markets and the famous street food.
The tour started at the Teatro Massimo and lastet 3 hours. Fabrizio and Manuela were great guides who showed us around their city with a lot of knowledge about the history and sights of the city. They have been very friendly and made it an enjoyable and fun tour, like friends showing you around.
I highly recommend to take the walking tour on the 1st day you arrive in Palermo. The tour gives you an idea of the city, and how to tour it on your own on future days.

Delightful view of the local streets, markets and by-ways of Palermo as only locals can do. This wife-husband duo gives you a very granular look at their town. Seeing how locals live, eat, shop and recreate is the focus of this tour. The street food is plentiful and tasty. The courtyards and back alleys are charming.

This was an interesting tour, we saw some parts of the city that we would otherwise have missed. Be warned, you taste a lot of fried foods. They are delicious but can be a lot.
