Although we initially registered for a tour on September 4th and were not informed about a cancellation, we took the offer to join it the day after and it turned out to be a great decision. The Instructor - Ambra, was charming, pleasant , knowledgeable and spoke English fluently. She gave us great explanations on food and history and introduced us to Sicily unique gastronomic treasures that otherwise we would probably have missed. The tour was one of the highlights of our vacation. Highly recommended.

On our month long tour of Italy this was one of the Best tours we took! Our guide was knowledgeable of the city and also the food we tasted. It was obvious she knew the products and the history of them in the city but also that she shopped and ate at the stops. We really felt she was sharing things she loved about her town. She also allowed us to linger over things that we found interesting and move quickly when we wanted. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Catania!

Our guide Basil, was very knowledgeable about Catania. As well as taking us to some yummy places to try street food, he explained many aspects of the city, the history, architecture etc and answered all our questions thoroughly. It was a very hot day so it was lovely to finish with Granita.

We took this trip a day after we arrived in Catania and it was a perfect choice. Our guide, Vasile, was very kind, knowledgeable and shared a lot of interesting stories about the city and its history. We tasted some delicious food, like arancini, pecorino, olives and granita. We highly recommend it!

Basil was an amazing guide and procurer of street food. He was generous and knowledgeable and funny. He adjusted to our pace and answered lots of questions. The horse meat was delicious. You should not eat breakfast before the tour.
