Memorable walking tour
Nov 2021 • Couples
Excellent tour. Walking the narrow market streets, sampling local food and drink led by Marco. Marco is knowledgeable, amusing and a top guide. He is a font of local knowledge, we met local "characters" stall holders and bar flies. This tour is something we will always remember. If you do one thing in Palermo, do this!

Brilliant Palermo experience
Such a brilliant experience. The warmth and humour of our guide, Marco, made this the most fabulous tour. The food and drink were fabulous, and the stories about the food and drink were too. Cannot recommend this enough. Hope to come back to Palermo and try and different out with Streaty another time.

A must see… don’t miss this tour!
Our group absolutely enjoyed every minute of this tour. That was in great part to our outstanding guide Angelo. He was entertaining, a wealth of knowledge and so personable. Our group was just visiting Palermo for the day. This tour provided a great insight into Sicilian cuisine while adding a lot of information about Palermo history and culture! I can’t say enough good things!
