A very good introduction to history of Catania under the shadow of Etna Our tour guide Matteo really gave us a really good idea of why Scicily is how it is today. We had the tour in English and a mixed age group we all seem to get exactly what we wanted from it without leaving anyone out. 🙌

Mateo is a treasure and we enjoyed our tour so much. He is a natural storyteller and his passion for the region is contagious. The tour was right on time, well organized, and interesting and entertaining from start to finish. The perfect introduction to Catania and Sicily; grazie, Mateo!

We really enjoyed the walking tour. Our guide was both informative and was receptive to the questions that everyone asked. We also felt that he really liked telling us the history that went along with the different places that we got to see. I would definitely recommend our guide and the tour that the took us on.
