Our tour was excellent! A 3 hour guided tour with Agata in which we learned not only the basics of the Sicilian cuisine, but also tips and tricks about how to get around Catania/Sicilian culture. Agata is extremely friendly, she speaks great English and has traveled most of Europe. She is very passionate about her job and exactly this type of attitude made the experience of the participants unforgettable. Many thanks, will definitely create a new habit of booking food tours when traveling abroad.

Unfortunately due to the weather and the rough seas, 3 out of 4 of our party were seasick, so we asked the captain Diego if we could cut the trip short and return to land. Diego and his colleague were great and dropped us of at a small marina just outside Catania, having called ahead for a taxi to meet us and take us back to Catania.

We had a wonderful day with guide Alessio who was very knowledgeable and as a bonus is a Montalbano fan! He took us to all the most iconic places in the series, which was great fun and as the weather was glorious we were able to swim in Salvo's part of the sea.

Lovely people, nice food and very nice yacht.What more could you ask? However, remember to take a jacket as even on a hot day it can be chilly at sea.

Great experience, super professional and fun guide, great day out!
