Our family of 5 (+one dog!) absolutely LOVED our tour with Mauro. We have experienced multiple tour guides in the past, but none were as knowledgeable, entertaining, enthusiastic, and friendly as Mauro. He had the answer to every question, ranging from very up-to-date information and stories of his childhood in this ever changing city. You will never feel bored! If you would like a superb local experience of this beautiful city AND to make a wonderful new friend, you should definitely choose him!

Mauro was a breath of fresh air! He was animated, and full of life. He is passionate about his city, Palermo. He is very knowledgeable about his history. He gave us a great overview and showed us the best of Palermo, which is what we asked for. He definitely set the tone for the next 10 days of our Sicilian adventure. I am traveling with my husband and daughter and son n law. Mauro would be could for any age group.

We've taken many tours. The afternoon we walked with a Mauro in was by far, the best. He has full knowledge of the culture and history of Palermo but that's not the only thing that makes him special. You're conversing with a man who is interesting, funny, and knows how to bring Palermo and Sicily to life. The highest rating.

My tour with Mauro was a highlight of my visit to Sicily in May, 2019. In fact, my tour was more like a conversation between friends as we walked from one significant site to the next, Whether describing the architecture, the historical or religious significance of a site , or the daily life of a citizen of Palermo, Mauro was able to capture the spirit of Palermo and make this a very enjoyable morning in Palermo.

Mauro liess uns teilhaben an seiner Begeisterung für Palermo mit seiner Geschichte, Kultur, Architektur und Kulinarik. Er unterhielt uns mit interessanten Geschichten. Wir haben die Zeit mit ihm genossen und empfehlen ihn gerne weiter.

Mauro was great�� Fun and entertaining when he needed to be, serious and insightful at times , his passion for his city is so evident throughout the tour. Appreciated his sharing of things which were dear to him like the Church of Sta Caterina. It became much more real when he recalled memories and stories of his youth. Thank you for a most memorable experience ������

Mauro is an excellent and charming guide to Palermo. He has a real sense and love of his City and its history, introducing you to unknown streets, crafts and sites that only he knows is a great experience. He seems to know everyone which makes time with him very personal and authentic. I cannot recommend him more highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Gerard! It was a pleasure to spend time with you!

I've used Tours by Locals on many occasions and can state, unequivocally, that Mauro provided the best overall experience for me. His knowledge is immense and his energy level unwavering. I was amazed by his breadth- history, culture, geography, language...there was not one question he could not answer nor expand on. You can't go wrong with Mauro!

Mauro has to be about the best tour guide I ever had. His passion and knowledge of Palermo was immense. On top of that he understood the needs of our group without us having to tell him. We were a group of 11, 7 were children ages 8-18. All the kids loved him, his excitement is very contagious. I highly recommend him for any size group and all ages!!
