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.

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!

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!
