Manuela was very knowledgeable about Palermo and the history of Sicily as a whole. Very pleased with our tour and experience! She showed us some awesome sites and explained others so we could explore on our own. She took us to get the best cannoli I have ever had and the story behind the nuns who made these desserts was great! What an excellent start to our trip and cannot wait to visit again! Thank you Manuela for being amazing!

Very knowledgeable guide. Calm and thorough. Pleasant. We wish we had more time with her. We were pleased with this first day introduction to Palermo. The trip helped us decide our week in Palermo.

Manuela provided my wife and I with an excellent introduction to Palermo. She gave us a real sense of the sites and history of Palermo and Sicily, and we look forward to returning one day. For those taking this tour in the future, make sure you stop at the convent for cannolis. Overall, a very informative and pleasant morning.

The guide was clearly identified when we met at the agreed point. Throughout the tour he was personable and gave us not only the history of the sites but several personal stories about the individuals involved. I would recommend the tour and it is even better if you can take it at the beginning of your visit as it gives you a sense of where the different sites are and how to maneuver around the city. Watch out for the bikes!

We always find it helpful to start a visit to a new place with a guided tour. In this three hour walking tour Manuela told us a lot about Palermo and its history. Afterwards we were much better prepared to wander around on our own and visit some of the places she had pointed out.
I would point ot that on Wednesday afternoons the Capo Market closes early, and therefore, if the Market is of special interest, take the tour at another time.
Also those places on the itinerary that are shown as "Admission Included" are actually free, so there isn't any admission charge.

I hired Manuela to lead a tour of Canadians through Palermo. The guide was well-informed and very pleasant person on this 3 1/2 hour tour. We saw the highlights, including markets, churches and interesting locations. Manuela was very pleasant and knowledgeable and she showed us a couple of places that we would never have found on our own. Highly recommended
