We had a fabulous tour with Iolanda! She knows the city like the back of her hand, happy to let our itinerary unfold as we went along. She was not worried about spending a little extra time with us! It was fantastic visiting the food markets with her, she knows the best places to sample the local fare. Her French is even better than her English and her love of Palermo is infectious. I believe we gained a friend for life. We would definitely hire Iolanda again on our next trip to Palermo!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much!

Personality plus. We loved Lolanda. She was smart, funny and great to be with. Besides being the best teacher of local history and knowledgeable beyond belief we had the best time. We would highly recommend her. She made us feel like we had a friend for life.?

Iolanda is a lovely and funny tour guide. This was our first tour in Sicily and we loved trying all the local specialities at the different markets along side learning about the history of Palermo. I don't think we would have seen as much as we did if we didn't have Iolanda guiding us around.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your suggestion Emily. I spent a very nice afternoon with you and your lovely family! Enjoy your trip in Sicily and thank you for choosing my "streetfood" in Palermo. Iolanda

So sorry for the delay. Our group of 4 friends had a wonderful time in Palermo! Iolanda was prompt, informative and put her heart into making our visit a success. We enjoyed city highlights and many types of delicious street food, combined with a good dose of local color. Iolanda, please relay a message to the kind lady that made the cannoli for us. We sampled them all throughout Sicily, (including the famous ones) hers were hands down the best!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Patricia!

Iolande was a fantastic guide who gave us an amazing insight into Palermo and Monreale. The trip to Monreale was well organised and having the flexibility to come back in our own time was important for us as we like to spend time just soaking up the atmosphere as well as learning about the place. This allowed us to spend more time at the Cathedral and have a leisurely lunch. In the end we spent most of the day in Monreale and got our own taxi back. This was a special and memorable trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for choosing my tour. It was great to spend time with you surrounded by the beauty of the mosaics of Monreale.

A private, full day tour on my first visit to Sicily that was exceptional. Iolanda's deep knowledge of Palermo's fascinating history and enthusiastic communication was spellbinding. So much more than the typical guide's facts and figures delivery. It was what, when, why, how in abundance bringing history to life.Tailored as we walked to suit my interests and answer my many questions. Introductions to local people - an artist, a tailor, market traders all contributed to a perfect day. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Paul, for me it was an honor and a privilege to be your guide in Palermo.
