Missed the tour—great communication

We actually missed our tour (due to our own inability to drive/navigate in Catania), but the communication before and while we were trying to find the tour we’re wonderful, and I wanted to be sure to commend the company for that! They even gave me the guide’s cell number so we could try to coordinate and meet up with them during the tour. Kudos for good customer service!

Unbelievable, great, so don't miss it

Our guide Ambra was absolutely perfect and fantastic - She represents pure passion for Catania. We were a little group of 4 persons, so it was a very private tour filled of amazing food, a lot if historical informations and many humor. Our guide shows the city in a very interesting way. Many thanks for a great day and this amazing experience - we have enjoyed it.

A fantastic way to see the city and discover its culinary delights.

I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. We covered much of the city on foot learning about its history and savoured some diverse foods. We would never have found these hidden treasures without the tour. Make sure you start with an empty stomach though!!
