Anita was by far the best guide we have ever had. She is extremely knowledgeable about Palermo's history, art, architecture and culture. She put together a very well organized 4 hour walking tour of Palermo's historic center and it's most significant sights. She shared information in a clear and interesting way. She also gave us great advice on eating like the locals and how to spend our subsequent days in Palermo. We highly recommend Anita.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sylvia, thanks a lot for your kind words! Anita

Mark HollowayUnited Kingdom
Anita is a brilliant guide. Her love of Sicily and huge knowledge of the island's history make her perfectly qualified for this role. Her introduction to Palermo gave a clear picture of the city's complicated history and took us from street food snacks in the old market to the glories of the Palatinate Chapel. The whole tour had a coherent narrative and structure that ensured we learned a massive amount in a short time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mark, thanks a lot for your kind words. I really enjoyed having been with you!

At the end of our holiday we were a little tired, Anita listened to us and our needs and tailored a tour to show us many highlights, historical, markets,food stops and rest stops :) that highlighted the BEST Palermo had to show. Anita is a real asset to the tour industry of Sicily. With a wonderful, warm and light hearted personality we were delighted with our tour, we can't thank you enough.

Extremely pleasant and very knowledgeable.
Anita was very personable, is fluent in English and very passionate about sharing her incredibly comprehensive and deep knowledge of Sicilian history, culture and the sights that she showed us. The personal contacts she'd pre-arranged details with, and the favourite spots she picked to pause for refreshments added further value to what was a very enjoyable and educational day!

Doris ToddUnited States
Anita was OUTSTANDING!She greeted my group of 14 travelers on the pier where she had arranged for taxis to take us to our starting point in Palermo. Anita is very fluent in English, very gracious to everyone, patient with their questions and considerate of those who move more slowly than others. In the middle of our tour Palermo had a torrential downpour (very unususal for Palermo), but no one turned back. We were so impressed with her knowledge and her communication skill. She is an abosolute winner!
Steven McKayUnited States
Bianca was wonderful. Her knowledge was encyclopedic!

Barbara LustbaderUnited States
Anita was not available so she had her tour guide colleague Bianca give us our tour. Bianca's English was perfect and she has a good sense of humor. She is extremely well educated and answered all of our questions, which was not always easy, as our group had 4 professional people including 2 lawyers asking very detailed inquiries. She presented the information extremely well. She was alert to groups needs, entertaining, amazing stamina and genuinely concerned that our group had a worthwhile tour.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Bianca gave the tour with the customers approval beforehand. Bianca is an licensed guide and will be joining ToursByLocals shortly.

My wife and I loved Anita so much we actually took TWO tours with her. Her English is perfect. The walking tour of Palermo is a must. What an unbelievable way to experience the treasures of the Palatine Chapel and the craziness of the Ballaro market. By the end of our stay, we had fallen in love with Palermo in large part due to Anita. We highly recommend her and look forward to future tours with her.
