Our guide, Oreste, was very knowledgeable not only on the underground tour but also the wider history of Catania.

Oreste was friendly and approachable.

Allowed the tour to be taken at our pace.

Would recommend to anyone wanting a deeper knowledge of Catania.

Fabulous tour with Oreste - would highly recommend! He was very knowledgable and was great to listen to...he also went above and beyond to get us back to our departure point to Taormina - giving us a lift through the busy city traffic. Absolutely fantastic morning! Thank you Oreste again 😁

Oreste was an amazing tour guide for our group. He was punctual. If you wanted to know more that didn’t even concern the tour, he had answers. He went out of his way to show us more about Catania. My 9 year old learned a lot so that says a lot about keeping a child’s attention! He ended this tour with a surprise for us. Definitely very pleased with him and I would recommend this tour to both young and old alike.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I really don't know how to thank you for these beautiful words. That’s a pleasure for me when I can involve children, who are always the most sensitive and attentive. And then, of course, it’s a pleasure to hear that you appreciated the passion and care with which we work to make your visit pleasant! Thanks again!

My guide was very knowledgeable about the area's history. It was amazing to see all the culture in the city and although one of the underground sites were closed we got to see the roman bath area with its history. You need to take one of these tours to appreciate the history of Catania

Oreste was our guide through this beautiful ancient city. He did a magnificent job of sharing, educating, and interacting with us. Our tour was tailored to us. And was magical. So many beautiful churches and reverent ruins. The resilience and strength of this city was awesome. We both fell in love with Catania through Orestes guidance. What a unique and outstanding experience.

A Wonderful Introduction to Catania!
Aug 2019
I took this tour on my first day in Catania and it was a lovely way to learn abut the city, as you get to see places that show the history of the city over the centuries. Matilde was such a lovely guide-so friendly and knowledgeable, since she has lived her whole life in Catania. It is always great to be able to learn about a place from a true local. The site we visited were fascinating and many of them are not ones I would have found or be able to access on my own, which made this that much better. it was a very hot day (since it’s mid August), but we took a nice slow pace and a break when needed for a cool granita. Overall great experience and would recommend.
