This was such an amazing tour, went with my friend and the host was lovely, super friendly and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this tour. When I visit again I’d definitely do this again

This was perfect for our first night in Sicily. 8 of us booked this and thoroughly enjoyed it. The wine, cheese and extras were delicious. Home made food and olive olive!

Perfectly lovely (and delicious) way to spend a few hours. The venue, the hostess, the fare—not to be missed. Relaxed and super informative.

We had a lovely time with this local guide. She lives in a beautiful apartment. We tasted several wines with great snacks.

Patricia was the most welcoming host. Lovely traditional Sicilian food and excellent wine. ❤️
