I am very happy to give a nice 5 stars to this experience because we were lucky enough to have a guide who loves his work and who loves the city of Catania, so he simply conveyed everything to us with a beauty and a descriptive ability that was a nice to hear it. After the end of the visit we went for lunch with the guide to Piazza Scamacca, a kind of covered "central market" born from an idea of young people from Catania, and which includes various gastronomic corners, each of which offers a certain category of food ( pasta, desserts, sandwiches, meat) both from Sicily and from other Italian regions (eg Panem offers 21 different sandwiches, each inspired by an Italian region). Highly recommended experience if you don't have much time to get around Catania and want to spend a couple of hours letting you tell the story of Catania and Sicily.

Ivan guided us who was kind, professional and very clear in the exposition. He guided us through the streets of the city, leaking knowledge and love for the territory. A very pleasant experience for adults, children and teenagers.

Totò the very prepared and engaging guide. Very interesting tour, not "commercial" and well calibrated for the two hours foreseen.

Fantastic tour, which we would thoroughly recommend. We got a great feel for the city and our guide was superb

Beautiful city and very comprehensive and specific explanation
