    The tour was great. I feel though that it would have been better especially for us if they had of used the voice boxes so we could have heard all the relevant information. Our guide was way ahead of us and we missed so much. Some older people do not walk as fast as the tour guide especially when it is hot.

    If we didn't arrive a few days post tour, would not have seen any of palermo. Mafia tour was more a donation and not sure if we learnt much as truth
