We highly recommend Giorgio of Palermo Street Food Tours! Giorgio was recommended to us by an Italian-American friend in NY. We're so glad she did. We enjoy street food whenever we explore a new city internationally. Palermo ranks as one of the best street food cities in Europe. We did a night time tour during the holiday season. Not only did Giorgio give us great history on Palermo, its people, culture and its food (arancino vs arancina debate!), but he listened to us and adapted the tour to fit our interests. Specifically, we had become interested in Arianna Occhipinti and Occhipinti wines after seeing her featured on CNN's "Searching for Italy" with Stanley Tucci, the Sicily episode. Next thing we knew, we were sitting down enjoying a bottle on the patio of a favorite trattoria of Giorgio. Well-traveled Americans owe it to themselves to get beyond the usual suspects (Roma, Florence, Venice, the Amalfi coast) and head down to Sicily. Wonderful people, food, and history. Even rent a car. It will build character!

Giorgio was a very insightful tour guide, he not only showed us places for street food and where to go in the market but he also gave us tips on good restaurants, bars and cafes in the area. He made sure to include the history of Palermo and the food itself. We could not recommend Palermo Street Food enough!

The tour started with being easy to book. Giorgio was very responsive to the booking and the concerns I had about booking on a Sunday - it turned out not to be an issue. The meeting place was easy to find and Giorgio was a bit early which was nice. Another couple that had scheduled the tour canceled so my wife and I had Giorgio to ourselves. Prior to starting, we received a good overview of what we would be seeing, our planned path, and the planned approach to eating street food in Palermo. As we walked, Giorgio provided a running commentary on the culture of Palermo and its historical development. Early on we went past Teatro Massimo and we mentioned that it would be nice to see an opera as we had done in other opera houses in Europe. Giorgio immediately detoured and got us to the ticket to explore whether it could be done - unfortunately, the timing was off. But it is a great example of the interest he takes in serving his clients. We explored the markets and tasted many of the offerings described in his promotional materials. But there was more - Giorgio suggested trying prickly pear fruit and it was very tasty. I expressed a desire for some tasty olives for our apartment and he directed us to a great selection then arranged for them to be vacuum wrapped so they did not leak into my backpack. Overall, Giorgio provided service well beyond our expectations. I would recommend his tour to anyone visiting Palermo that is interested in culture, history, and, of course, food.

Great tour with the flexibility to try/buy as much or as little food as desired. Unlike most tours, you pay a lower tour fee, and then for whatever you want to eat on top of that, which could be as little at €5. Giorgio was an engaging guide and happy to answer questions beyond the strict remit of the tour, which was great. Highly recommended.
