Great night time tour!
Dec 2021
Streaty was very flexible - we decided to change our (private) tour day and they were very accommodating. Our guide, Agata has a lovely personality and told us interesting stories as she led us through the Catania streets at night. Our tour even included the square with the Christmas market which was a nice touch for the holiday season. We visited places we never would have found on our own, and each food has a 'story'. Many tourist sites are closed on Sundays so a food tour Sunday evening is a nice way of still touring around while churches, museums are closed. Both my husband and I really enjoyed this experience and would recommend it. (Make sure you arrive for the tour with an empty stomach - there is no shortage of filling foods to sample.!)

Passion, enthusiasm, and knowledge in abundance
What a fabulous food tour. Agata our guide was so interesting and knowledgeable and took us to places we would never have visited. The fish market was amazing (although a little quieter than expected, apparently, as there had been such a big storm the night before), the streets cafes were great and every single food sample was not only delicious but very generous. We certainly didn’t finish the tour hungry. Agata’s English was superb and knowledge, enthusiasm and obvious passion for all things Sicilian, were clear for all to see. Do not leave Catania without doing this tour.

Top notch food tour with friendly faces.

If you're even thinking about going on the Streaty food tour with Agata.... don't. Just go ahead and book it. This was my 3rd tour. It was an absolute pleasure meeting Agata (our guide) being able to hear her impart her wealth of knowledge on all things Sicilian. Agata weaves a plethora of cultural and historical facts into the tour. I personally enjoy the history aspects of the tours as much as the food - which is obviously absolutely delicious.

A tour that shouldn’t be missed. Catania is lively and beautiful at night. I highly recommend it! Thank you, Agata!
Agata was very friendly and highly knowledgeable of all things Catania and Sicily. She spoke excellent English and took us to out of the way places in Catania. The street food was delicious (although I couldn’t get myself to try the horse meat, although everyone else found it delicious) and well varied. Even though it was an evening tour, it was quite warm and Agata gave us many opportunities to rest and drink.
Agata went above and beyond, in that after the tour, she assisted us to get our car out of the parking lot that we were locked in. We would probably still be there if it weren’t for her.
One suggestion, it would be very helpful if the tour guide had an iPhone to be able to easily share pictures back and forth…definitely would have facilitated sharing.

What a great tour! Agata’s knowledge, enthusiasm, articulateness and pacing are a model of a cultural tour. While the food is central, she adds historical and aesthetic insights that deepen the experience. Highly recommended.

Street Food Glory!
Wonderful time learning about Catania street food with Agata! She knew so much about Sicily and Catania, as she is a local, so she was able to add depth of personal experience to the food and history of the area.

The fish market was fascinating! We wondered through fish merchants selling the days fresh catch, locals bartering, and locals greeting one another. Agata knew many of the vendors and we tried so much! The sardines that are cured in salt and wrapped around capers and peppers in lemon vinegar! YUM! What a unique experience.

Agata showed us a surprising underground river in lava caves and introduced us to exceptional granita with brioche!!!

We just loved the whole experience. Agata was so beyond wonderful, she became a friend.

10/10 would recommend and do again!

Fantastic tour!
I had a really great time on what ended up being a private tour as I was the only one booked for that day! Sonia was really lovely and in addition to taking me round the different spots to try all sorts of delicious bites, she also made the effort to take me to some other places around Catania to give me a great overview. Sonia was very friendly and knowledgeable, and she seemed to have a good relationship with all the vendors which made it even more fun because it meant that the vendors were chattier. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone :)

Interesting and tasty Street Food Walking Tour in Catania
Nov 2019
We met Agatha near the Duomo and proceeded to visit the adjacent Fish Market...it was one of the most memorable experience to see fishermen, Fish mongers, and street vendors interacting in a crowded space. We were treated to a freshly fried fish and calamari, following by samples of arancino, Cipollina, local seltz water, and finally a dessert called granita o minnuzza. We were given a guided walk in the neighborhood which was colorful and vibrant to say the least. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would strongly recommend this activity to visitors of Catania.
