What a fun, entertaining, experience! I would highly recommend (ask for Angelo to be your guide). We enjoyed meeting the people in our group, getting to indulge in Sicilian street food, learning some history and thoroughly being entertained- it was just the right amount of everything! Thank you Angelo!!


We had a blast on this tour with my four cousins. Salvo was our tour guide
that afternoon. He was knowledgeable and very patient with us as he took us to some of the best places in Palermo. Definitely worth booking and a great way to get aquainted with Palermo.
Thank you Salvo!

WOW WOW WOW... this tour is a MUST.. We really can not stress how amazing it was. Salvo you deserve a pay rise!!

Firstly, Salvo thank you sir you was INCREDIBLE. We loved it, it was such a fun experience, so relaxing and so interesting.

You do not need to just love food to enjoy the tour, it was great any questions we had Salvo answered them. Any recommendations asked for Salvo helped us out.

We are vegetarian and don't drink, we thought like normal food tours there would be items we would not be able to eat. Salvo made sure that there was a substitute even if just for us. We felt so special.

We can not write words for how great and fun the tour was, it was supposed to last a few hours, without any complaints or ask for money the tour was extended and we all left with not only a full belly Arancini Ke Belly? but a new love for Sicily thanks to Salvo!

The street food tour gave us so much insight into the history of Palermo, it’s people and their food traditions. It was an excellent way to learn our way around old Palermo and Alessandra, our guide, was so delightfully fun and energetic! We highly recommend doing this tour as soon as you land in Palermo.

I would highly recommend this absolutely fantastic tour. The guide was excellent and involved my son aged 7 in everything we did.


We did this street food tour the first day in Palermo and it helped us as we ate elsewhere. Not only with knowing what to eat, how to eat it, and where to eat it on the streets. But, also with restaurants for after the tour. I had the best seafood pasta thanks to their list or recommendations. This tour gives a great insight into the food culture and traditions of the Sicilian people. Our tour guide exuded passion for his great city!

My husband and I had a wonderful time on this tour. It was our first day in Palermo, having arrived the night before, and it was the perfect way to get acquainted with the city. We got much more than a few tastings. We learned so much from our guide about the markets, and the lifestyle of Palermitanos. We recommend this tour very much!

25 years ago I worked in a restaurant in Palermo, and this summer I returned for the first time together with my husband and two children (11 and 14). I wanted to give them a quick guide to central Palermo and a glimpse of sicilian fast food. And I got so much more: we spent 3,5 hours (that seemed like 1 hour) accompanied by a very enthustiastic guide and my family was introduced in the most perfect way, not only to Palermo, but expecially to the very tasteful sicilian fast food. Who would ever have thought that an 11 year old would like snails and enjoy pani ca meusa! And that a 14 year old wasn't bored for a single second! And she is usually VERY critical... So when we finished the tour by eating the largest brioche with icecream and she stated

Our group of 4 had a fantastic time! The food and drinks were delicious and plenty to qualify as lunch. Our guide Salvatore (Salvo) was excellent! He was very knowledgeable about the city and very entertaining and kept the whole group engaged. I would highly recommend this experience.

This is an excellent tour, well worth it. Our guide Angelo was so enthusiastic and showed us lots of extras around the old city. Do it early in your stay so that you can go back to the markets and eat more of the amazing food!

Salvo was our guide, and gave an excellent walking tour of the best sites for street food in Palermo. Lots of local color and flavor. A very entertaining Sicilian experience!


Marco was a fantastic guide - very knowledgeable, funny and very handsome. I highly recommend his tour. We saw many highlights of Palermo.


Best street food walking tour ever. Marcus was funny, knowledgeable and friendly. Weve recommended this tour to all of our friends travelling to Sicily.


Our guide, Salvo, did a fabulous job! He went over and above getting us extra foods and drinks that weren't included on the foodie passport. He also went over the allocated time for the tour explaining more about the city, which all of us were more than happy about! Definitely recommend this tour to get a good feel for the city and its amazing food!

This tour is a MUST DO while in Palermo! The tour guide Salvo made the entire experience one of the best days/tours we experienced on our Honeymoon. He was a native from Palermo, and had so much inside information about the city and the Italian culture. We absolutely loved it. I recommend this tour as a must do while you are in Palermo. It allows you to see the whole city in one swoop!


A Highly reccommended Tour in Palermo, I would suggest getting in on Day 1 of your stay, as it will set you up for the remainder of your stay. The Tour includes walking all around the back street markets and also historical sites of significance. Our guide was terrific and she obviously had a great rapport with many of the street vendors. We tried many of the Palermo delights which even included a picnic in a backstreet Taverna with some of the locals trying the local brew. This is the MUST DO tour of Palermo.

An amazing variety of street food that perhaps we wouldn't have tried otherwise. My husband is now having withdrawal symptoms as he went on to have arranchine every lunch time for the following week .My favourite was the English soup ice cream in a bun ! Marco was wonderful and it different Gave us the confidence to try more street food later.


We really enjoyed our tour. The food was delicious and our excellent tour guide, Marco, who is obviously passionate about his city,
gave us an invaluable insight into daily life in Palermo.
Thanks Marco for a great morning.

Amazing! Marco was awesome! So knowledgeable about not only Sicilian street food but also liked the fact that he gave us some history facts along the way. Oh and if you're a vegetarian just let him know ahead of time.
