    Fabrizio was the best! He took us around Palermo pointing out all the important and also less known landmarks, and giving us interesting facts and stories along the way. The Capo market is where we enjoyed tasting the many street foods of Palermo. ArancinA, panelle, patate croquette, pani ca meusa (don't knock it till you try it), cannoli and Sfincione. Go with an empty stomach. Fabrizio was very engaging and we completely enjoyed the time with him.

    It was a very interesting walk throughout the city! Fabrizio told us a lot of historic details about the buildings and the food we tasted along the way. Also our children (14 and 17 years old enjoyed it a lot!

    Palemmo’s best street food tour with Fabrizio

    , Aug 2020
    Fabrizio is a wonderful guide, he came to meet us at our apartment and straight away his enthusiasm, humour and fantastic knowledge brought the city to life. We had great food . So good we went back the next day to have some more “Arancino” . He even extended the tour to include the cathedral and would of continued had our kids not needed a break after more than 3 hours. I would certainly recommend him and this tour . Thanks Danny and family

    Our tour guide, Fabrizio, was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. There were 4 of us on the tour, the perfect number to receive his personal attention. We tasted the foods that he had planned for us on the tour, and then each time I had a question about what we were seeing or walking past, he patiently explained and we stopped, he purchased the item, and then we tasted the additional items!

    This was an excellent way to see the markets and sample the food that Palermo had to offer. The guide was one the most excellent person to lead this. We took our time and sampled many of the food offerings in the market. Well worth the cost/time.

    We had 9 family members traveling. Our tour guide was prompt, he engaged the kids during the tour and was very knowledgeable of the history in Palermo. I know that you might feel like you could do this on your own,but we were able to follow his lead, listen to great stories, try delicious food, and laugh with one another while we walked through the city without stumbling through a map! Great job. We would do this again.

    The only reason this tour didn't receive 5 stars is because the style of our guide left us wondering if she loved her city or if this was a job. We love to 'experience' a place walking and tasting and she delivered on this in a big way. The local market was certainly a highlight and the breakfast pizza was the perfect way to get started.

    We were fortunate to be the only ones on the street food tour for the day so Manuela was able to give us a private tour of Palermo. She was very knowledgeable of the history of the area, the buildings, and the street food. A great tour for the first day In Palermo. I would recommend her and the tour to anyone.

    This was NOT what we expected. We did the Sunday morning tour and our guide, Valentina, was very good. As a cultural tour it was excellent but forget the street food thing and you will definitely need to have breakfast before you go. Although we were taken through the wonderful markets all we got to have was a very small sampling of panelli, a tiny square of pizza, one very good arancino and some flat bread - that was it apart from a very small cannolo at the end of our tour. No opportunity offered for the glass of wine, beer or water and our guide was non-plussed when we asked what happened to that option. The coffee stop was definitely not included either. This tour was not value for money and don't go there expecting a great food experience.
