We were delighted by this tour. Francesco is fully fluent in English, and his knowledge of Palermo was incredible. We feel like we got the best gems on this tour, and just enough info for us. Turns out, he’s a high school history teacher! He showed us things we would have never seen without him: a 500 year old monastery garden and bakery, neighborhood churches, special touches everywhere. He’s incredibly professional and a great communicator. We asked him near the end how long he’s been doing this and we shocked that we were his first tour. He was impressive, I’d book him again in a heartbeat.

Ritti was wonderful. The best part was that she was not a local. She has been living in Palermo for less than a year. She showed us her favourite tourist sites with enthusiasm and shared some of her favourite local spots that she found was the most appealing as a new local. We would highly recommend her.

The tour was fantastic! It turned out to be a customized private tour of an outstanding value during which I had several firsts for me including tasting Figgie the India, visiting the convent confectionery, and visiting a mosque converted to a Christian site, as well as tasting some unique Sicilian treats from the confectionery. So this was a tourist sites as well as the food tour which I really appreciated. Salvator also provided many insightful recommendations of places to eat and visit in follow up. Our three hours went very quickly and Salvator did manage to tire me out by the end which is unusual for me! I highly recommend the store given by Salvator.
