This was the absolute best way to be introduced to Catania. Our guide Anna was very knowledgeable, friendly, and open. She showed us the best of Catania while also taking us down the less beaten path. We were so much more comfortable navigating the city after our tour. I definitely recommend this tour to be the first thing you do when you arrive so you have a solid base to launch the rest of your time in Catania from.

The tour was excellent. Our guide was so helpful and knowledgeable - she shared information not just about street food, but also about the history and culture of the city of Catania, as well as those of Sicily itself. We recommend Anna, our guide very highly.

We actually missed our tour (due to our own inability to drive/navigate in Catania), but the communication before and while we were trying to find the tour we’re wonderful, and I wanted to be sure to commend the company for that! They even gave me the guide’s cell number so we could try to coordinate and meet up with them during the tour. Kudos for good customer service!
