We really liked the tour! The guide Valeria gave us a lot of interesting information and even modified the tour a little since we had already seen a lot of the city before. A unique experience!

A very effective way of visiting places outside of Palermo if you don’t have your own transport. One comment, the guide could have provided a bit more information during the trip.

Catherina is a guide 20, all the time aware of the group and attentive to everyone. The driver is also great. An excursion 10 with a guide 10. Thank you!

Great tour to do if you are only in Palerfor short time. We did this with 4 teenagers and everyone enjoyed it. Good value for money
