Giorgio was amazing. His knowledge of Palermo, Sicily, and world history in general was outstanding. When matched with his personal touch and incredible gift of story telling, it was the perfect combination for a perfect day for the 7 of us. God bless you Giorgio and thank you.
Giorgio was outstanding! He is extremely knowledgeable and able to convey the information in an engaging manner. He should be the template for all of your guides. I am confident that his field of study thoroughly prepared him, but more importantly he knew how to weave a coherent natrative. A good guide is always a good storyteller (though a good storyteller is not always a good guide). We will definitely tour with him again in the future.
Cetty was a great guide. She’s knowledgeable and professional, and is really fun to be around. She got to know me and tailored our tour to my interests as we were going. Her English is great and I really enjoyed our conversation. Palermo has a rich history and amazing sights. Cetty really brought them to life. Thoroughly enjoyed my tour!
