We really loved this tour with Fulvio! He was very knowledgeable and informative. We got to see a lot of hidden sights and have some great laughs while on this tour! I would highly recommend this tour that shows you the great sights and great food of Palermo!

Se si vuole conoscere Palermo e avere una piccola idea della bontà e qualità della gastronomia siciliana questa è la migliore occasione. Non é solo un momento per scoprire le peculiarità dello Street Food in Sicilia (e questo sarebbe già di per se straordinario) ma anche di scoprire la storia e la vita di Palermo. La nostra guida non ci ha solo fatto provare i diversi manicaretti siciliani, ma ci ha dato anche una informazione dettagliata della storia, dei monumenti e della vita a Palermo. Da un vero palermitano, che conosce anche molto bene la lingua inglese, non si poteva desiderare di più. Inoltre, ancora tanto grazie per averci fatto scoprire la via dove si producono le vere coppole siciliane.

We did this tour August 16th 2021. It was wonderful. Fulvio is a very charming host/chef who knows a lot of Palermo's history and food. We tasted local dishes and drinks while walking through the streets of Palermo. See you next time in Palermo Fulvio. Ciao.
