Experienced guide, good compact tour through Palermo’s history of the mafia and the fight against it.

Linda is a friendly and experienced guide. The tour was educative and compact to get a good overview about the topic (mafia’s influence on the city and the society and the fight of the citizens’ against it). We enjoyed the information, the pace of the tour and Linda as guide. We would recommend the tour to visitors who are the first time in Palermo.

Glacial paced walking tour

Probably because it was out of peak season but the tour was painfully slow paced as the guide had to do the Italian tour and English tour in one.After sticking with it for an hour and 40 minutes and only just getting to the 2nd stop I eventually gave up and left and got on with my day!Guide was ok if a little dry.

Yes! No Mafia makes a solid case for community action against criminal activity ... the tour was very enlightening.

Yes! It was a great tour. It went beyond the movie versions of the Mafia and told the stories from a Sicilians perspective. The “No mafia” movement began with a small committed group who stood up to the fear of criminal activity ... and the community began to protest the criminal activities, when the socio-political events of the day strengthen the anti-mafia effort.

After this tour you will have a much clearer view of the mafia and the recent developments to stop these practices in Palermo.The guide was very knowledgeable.However, I experienced the 3 hours as quite long as there are no visits included to e.g. the Palace of Justice.
