A Recent Review of this tour

Palermo Private Street Food Tour with Patrizia was a lot of fun. She was "5 Star" & so personable. We felt like we were just walking the streets with a good friend. We saw 3 different outdoor food markets - each with their own uniqueness. The foods we tasted were varied & many we wouldn't have tried without Patrizia explaining them to us. Can now say we have tasted spleen :) . The reason we didn't give this tour a 5 star was because we didn't think the price reflected the value of what was received.
