Our stroll through Palermo’s fresh markets and street food vendor community with Alessandra was worth every cent, minute and bite. Alessandra shared fascinating history and cultural insights, and makes us determined our first visit to Sicilia will not be our last. Grazie.

Walking through parts of Palermo's historic city center with Marco (owner and terrific tour guide) is like eating a delicious Sicilian meal with family: history, culture, stories, humor and wit. Instead of a pasta primi, it is street food from family owned businesses, with a secundi of a glass of "sangre" from the oldest pub in the city and a dessert of knowledge and laughs from a local expert.

Marco doesn't shy away from any topic. He truly loves his work, his city, the food and sharing it all with you. You could easily spend the same amount on a restaurant meal or indulge in a Streaty walking tour of Palermo. I highly recommend the latter. If you are still hungry after the tour, do the former.

This tour and our guide Laura was absolutely amazing! It was fun, educational and the food was really yummy.
Laura was an excellent host, she was very knowledgeable on both the food and the city itself. We found the group size was perfect too, as we met some new people but you didn't feel part of a big crowd.
If you are going in peak summer like us, I would absolutely recommend taking a hat etc as you do spend some time sat/walking in the sun.

Our guide, Angelo, was amazing! He was very passionate about Palermo and it’s street food tradition and it showed. He made us laugh the entire time and provided a good variety of experiences with types of food/drink and establishments. Would definitely recommend as the local foods are some of the best ways to experience the city.

Our guide for this 3 hour tour was Angelo, an exceptionally well-informed and charming native of Palermo. We enjoyed learning of the city’s history and current issues and meeting with the many characters of Angelo’s world along the way. There was of course delicious, freshly prepared food and even cooking instructions for the more unusual ingredients! A fantastic and fun way to spend a few hours.

This Street Food-Tour was a fantastic experience! Marco is a real foodlover who knows how to create a great group dynamic and with his knowledge he gives an authentic insight into Parlemitan market life. His enthusiastic and funny nature made it even more exciting to listen to his interesting explanations about streetfood and Palermo itself. He took us to places where the Parlemitans still cooked according to original and traditional recipes and we also got a glimpse into the kitchen. Marco managed to make me fall in love with the city a little more and for the rest of my holiday I walked through the streets of Palermo with a different view. So if you want to experience what Sfincione, Sangue, Arancina (and a lot more) taste like and especially if you want to get to know the best Gelateria of the city, then I highly recommend this tour.

What a delightful way to experience the sights, sounds and foods of this amazing city! Raffaela knows her city: the history, the beauty, the struggles and the FOOD! I would never imagine tasting spleen - but when it comes with a history and a love for the foods that feed the people, I did it! And it was delicious!! The markets are alive - we had the feel as tourists but also as vendors and local shoppers as she explained and showed us the inner workings of these central markets. We are so glad we signed up for this tour. We had such a variety of foods and drinks and finished with the best gelato ever! It was an incredible experience!

I am not a “foodie” but my wife is. She booked the tour but I thoroughly enjoyed it! The food was excellent and our guide, Angelo, was very passionate, not only about the food, but about Palermo and Sicilian culture. He took us “behind the scenes” to see the “mamas” cooking the arancini and he introduced us to people along the way. The last taverna was great fun with lots of animated conversations among the regulars while we have pizza, wine, cheese and pistachios.
We paid for the extra tour of the Palermo Cathedral. The extra time with Angelo was well worth it.

A great tour - both very informative and so much fun. Marco is a born story teller and very knowledge about both the history of the city and the roots of all the foods we tried. Had a wonderful time and hope to do another tour with him and his company.
