There were only two of us, so the tour was all the more interesting. Not only did we eat all the delicious delicacies of Catania, but we also got a great city tour. Our tour guide Anna was extremely friendly and patient and told us a lot of interesting facts about the city and Sicily in general. Great, I can only recommend!

Fabulous experience!

It is a really well organized tour. Our guide, Ambra, arrived on time and was able to pass on her passion for the city and its food. It helped us to get to know Catania from the point of view of its inhabitants and not just looking at it with the eyes of a tourist. The path of flavors was really interesting ... It really deserves! Thanks again to Amber

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!
