Claudia gave us a very interesting and informative walking tour of old Palermo. We started with the Palazzo Reale and the magnificent Palatine Chapel, and went to other interesting places that were not in the usual "top 10 must see" lists. Her in-depth knowledge of the social, political, and religious history, as well as her commentary on modern life in the city, made the tour fascinating and we all felt we had learnt a lot. I would highly recommend Claudia as your guide in Palermo.

We loved our tour with Claudia! She is highly knowledgeable of the city of Palermo and you can tell she loves living there. We explored the city, ate a delicious dessert and experienced way more than we could have on our own. I highly recommend booking this tour if you are visiting Palermo!

I put for Claudia 5 stars as she had taken us to the best and unique places in Palermo , that you can't go on your own. Fluent English, very kind. Good general and history knowledge. We enjoyed our tour with her
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Naomi, thank you very much, you are so kind. I wish you all the best Claudia
A wonderful tour by Claudia! She is so knowledgeable about history, Sicily, the whole area — we got so much value for the time we spent. We have since enjoyed some of the sites and restaurants she recommended. This was our first day in Palermo and going by bicycle was a great way to get an overview of this beautiful city.

Claudia was a great tour guide. We saw a lot and felt like we had a very comprehensive insight into the main sights in Palermo. Claudia was friendly and shared lots of interesting insights.
We so enjoyed our half day with Claudia on the tuk tuk tour through Palermo, our group of 9 booked her again for the full day trip to Monreale, the Catacombs and Cefalu. The mini bus was terrific, Vito the driver excellent and once again Claudia was outstanding. She knows her stuff, is entertaining and is great company. She fit in very well with our group, engaged well with the children and was flexible with our requests and needs. Her lunch suggestion and booking was excellent. Thank you Claudia!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, too kind. It was a pleature for me to spend time with so nice people as you are.

Had a WONDERFUL tour. The guide was extremely informative and knowledgeable about Palermo and was also rather entertaining! Would Highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants a quick introduction to Palermo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kindness. I had a great time .
Claudia took our group of 7 adults and 2 children on an outstanding tour through the Norman Royal Palace and then through Palermo with our small flotilla of tuk tuks. Great fun for young and old. Claudia herself was excellent- very knowledgeable, very reliable and great company. She is entertaining and informative. We have no hesitations in giving her the highest recommendation.

Claudia gave us a wonderful tour of Palermo by bike. It was a fun and easy way to cover a lot of ground quickly so that we could see so many sights. Claudia was very knowledgeable about history and architecture. She made an extra effort to please by such things as telling jokes, getting special access into the churches, visiting an area where they have many bike shops because we are interested in that, going to a vegetable stand and getting prickly pear fruits for us to eat. It was a nice long tour.

Claudia was perfect for our first trip to Sicily. Both knowledgeable and charming she catered to our interests and mobility needs. It was as if she had an internal GPS the way she deftly navigated the streets. The highlight of our visit was the tour of the Cattedrale di Monreale with its biblical mosaics as the centerpiece of the experience. Both the Old & New Testament stories were depicted with grace. Look forward to spending more time with Claudia on our next trip to Sicily.
Tara B.United Kingdom
Guide was very friendly & informative and traveling by tuk tuk more fun than walking. The chat in the tuk tuk was more interesting to us with teenagers as it was about Sicily & Palermo rather than detailed historical facts (which she also knew). Only small criticism is it's quite expensive compared to similar tours in other countries..
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kindness. The price for the tuk tuk doesn't depend on me, but on their tariff. With me you had even a better rate. Also because we needed two of them, due to the laws here.

We were a private tour of 7 adults of Palermo old city, the Santa Rosalia, and luncheon in Mondello on the waterfront - all arranged by the wonderful Claudia! This was another great experience with "tours by locals"! Claudia worked with us in advance to arrange transportation into Palermo from Cefalu, where she met us exactly as planned. We saw cathedrals, monuments, markets, and got a great sense of the city. She had then arranged for a spectacular lunch on the sea and tour of Santa Rosalia! Perfect!
