Graet tor and round trip. Impressed by multi-language skills of guide who filled us in with al lsorts of information.
This was a good way to get to Palermo and Cefalu in one day from Taormina. It and #39;s minimal time in Palermo but does give a flavor for the city. Cefalu was beautiful. The guide didn and #39;t seem to know or share a lot about Cefalu (may have been a language issue) but was pleasant and helpful.
A thoroughly enjoyable and informative day.I would encourage any visitor to Sicily to take this trip.
The road traffic accident delayed us but we did not feel that we missed anything at all.
I was staying in Messina the other side of Sicily and I wanted an easy way to explore the capital of Palermo. I was so happy when I found this tour option. It is a VERY LONG DAY! You do leave at 6am and you do not return until 7pm that night, however for one person wanting to get a glimpse of the other side this was good. I enjoyed seeing the historic heart of Palermo and you can definitely see why Cefalu is a thriving beach town for Europeans. A great way to explore.
good tour, but be prepared - it's a long ride.
This trip was a little bit hard it was a long day. But still Palermo and Cefalu' are both places to see! In Palermo we had a local guide and she was pleasant. Our guide for the trip recommended us to have a lunch in a restaurant in Palermo Restaurant and Pizzeria 59. I must say it was the worst! The food was bad. For example on our antipasto plate there were two cold frankfurters - straight from the package. They still had some slimy gel on them!!! And the place was also expensive. I would never recommend that restaurant to anybody.
But otherwise the trip was alright!
This was a very fast way to see a little bit of both places. We were lucky enough to have an actual tour guide Rossana give us a quick tour around Palermo with a lot of information. It was nice to have a local guide. The sights were somewhat interesting but as I mentioned it is a very quick overview. We had lunch at Restaurant 59. It was very good, but as some others mentioned, it is expensive. I ordered lasagna with a side, and Coke Light as a beverage, and the Coke Light came in a very tiny bottle so I ordered two, not realizing that it cost 4 euros a bottle! Then there is also the cover charge of 2 euros just to eat inside, but that is very typical of most places, so I can't fault them for that. I will say the lasagna was worth what I paid for it, but if you eat lunch there you may want to order something else as a beverage. I also had the tempura style vegetables and those were good. After that, we were off to Cefalu, which I thought was much more scenic than Palermo, and even more scenic that Panarea and Stromboli which I had visited earlier in the week. It was a long day, but nice to get a taste of what these two places were like in case I want to come back for a future visit. The only somewhat negative point is that the tour was conducted in three languages, which makes the explanation times a bit long and cumbersome. We were a large enough group that we could have had an English-speaking guide and German-speaking guide. There were a couple of Spanish speakers who got by with Italian. Other than that, it was a nice tour.
the trip is well organized, good guide, we had very little time for Palermo cathedral
This is a MUST DO trip if you are staying at the eastern side of Sicily and do not have time to go to the Western part. Palermo is a beautiful city with a lot of history and in my opinion it would be a big loss if you come alI the way to Sicily and miss visiting Palermo. I would like to thank our tour guide Rosalia Tramuto for such an enjoyable and informative tour. Our only concerns about the tour was 1- We had to pay for the head phones which is not logical as I never had to pay for head phones in any guided tour I bought. 2- If I were a Siclian I would not want any tourist to see that market place anyway. It is a dirty and stinky place where they sell meat and fish in open air with flies all over them. 3- The tour drops you off and picks you up in front of a restaurant. It is a little expensive but I must admit that food is great. You may try some other place for a cheaper lunch. But no matter what, I strongly reccomend this tour to everyone. Worth it!
