    A really enjoyable morning! Fulvio the Chef was a brilliant tour guide who showed us lots of weird and wonderful traditional Italian food from the markets. We didn't like all the food but there was such a good amount and a wide selection that we were stuffed by the end! You get a really good value for money in food drinks and experience. Fulvio also had a lot of knowledge about the area, telling us interesting stories about the history of Palermo including the mafia, the fountain and the old town square. Taking the tour with a local is highly recommended as we were taken to places that tourists wouldn't usually go. By the end we were a little bit hot and bothered so make sure you wear plenty of sunscreen, drink plenty of water and wear a sunhat to protect yourself! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone else who wanted to try something fun interesting and different!

    We enjoyed an excellent tour with Fulvio through the back streets and markets of Palermo. We savored samples of food that we would not have tried otherwise, and overall had an enjoyable tour. There was ample food, and lots to see and take-in in the colorful markets of the City. Fulvio was knowledgeable on both food and history, and overall our experience was excellent. We too had a little trouble finding the meeting spot, as another reviewer mentioned. There is not a green pharmacy sign, but rather a group of shops across from the steps of the Theater Massimo (that has a Cannabis sign presently). That should be corrected in TripAdvisor and is not the tour leader's fault. I highly recommend this tour.

    It is unfortunate that we did not have the positive experience written about by the other reviewers. In fact, we had no experience at all. We were told to meet at a pharmacy across the street from a landmark. Specifically, we would know the pharmacy by its green cross. We spent an hour looking for the tour without success. We canceled and later saw that the address for the meeting spot was not a pharmacy and did not have a green cross. A frustrating and wasted morning.

    Fulvio gave an amazing tour of Palermo that incorporated history, culture, and food. The highlights included the Baroque church (San Joseph’s) and and the “Shame fountain.” The food was all around incredible and included interesting and authentic street food only found in Palermo. Bring your appetite! Fulvio’s sense of humor and openness to talking about some of the developments and challenges in Palermo is what made this tour special. Would recommend it to anyone looking to experience real Palermo.

    We tried a fantastic variety of local street foods and snacks, each more exciting than the last. Fulvio never fails to entertain, and with his commentary and guidance I felt I had an authentic and delicious taste of Sicily.

    Fulvio was so knowledgeable and fun! His expertise on the history of Palermo and it’s cuisine was impressive. We tasted and learned so much and our tour with Fulvio was a highlight of our time in Sicily. Highly recommend!

    Our guide was Fulvio, a chef who also does cooking experiences in his own home, so was well versed in how good Sicilian food should be. Fulvio was a great guide, friendly and laid back. We did quite a bit of walking but was at a fairly gentle pace and the chatting made the time fly! We sampled a variety of street food including arancini, panelle, sfincione and croquettes. My favourite was the ricotta & herb sandwich. We also had the chance to try the famous spleen & lung sandwich - my husband was eager to try this, but I was not! After some encouragement I am proud to say that I did try it! I particularly enjoyed visiting the market, seeing ricotta being made and watching the stall holders shouting in the traditional way to draw attention to their wares. The tour ended with a stop at a gelateria which was amazing. We even went back for more gelato the next day. Along the way Fulvio shared some stories about the history of some of the famous monuments in Palermo and we got to have a look inside a couple of pretty churches and a gallery of the work of a local sculptor as well as seeing the original city doors. This gave us a great taste of the city and Fulvio recommended some places we should explore if we had time. After telling him we struggled to find good tea in Sicily he told us about a Chinese tea shop which which turned out to be a great recommendation! A good length tour and being in the morning left us the afternoon to explore more. The only thing to note was that the meeting point mentioned on our booking (a pharmacy) no longer exists, but if you go to the address listed you will be in the right place, we had no problems. We arrived early and Fulvio was already there. Thank you!

    We had a great time on this tour. The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable about the area and the food markets. We tasted all different kinds of food and had a nice lunch at a local spot. A lot of walking but the pace was slow enough that we didn't notice how far we had walked.
