Can anyone recommend a tour guide for Sicily, specifically Palermo?

We are heading off to Sicily for a 12 day trip starting at the end of February.

I have booked a tour guide for Agrigento, but am looking for one for Palermo. Right now I am thinking that we would like a guided tour of the city's highlights and also of Monreale.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
Sally

YES I CAN!!!!! I just spent 2 days with the best guide I have had in Italy so far on my trip. Her name is Marina Di Grista, her email is [email protected], and cell is 335 8443973. Be sure to put "request for guiding services" or something in the reference part of the email - she said she gets a lot of junk. She was wonderful - very knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging, fluent in English and French.

Have fun!

Cyn,

Thank you so much! I had given up hope of an answer here. And I also just spotted your trip report. I'm looking forward to that as well!

Thanks again,
Sally

I can't remember their names; but we had 2 excellent driver/guides, and a foot guide for Agrigento. They all were from Initaly.com an excellent source for all types of independent Italy travel.

Longboatkey,

Thanks for the web link. I hadn't even thought of using them. I emailed Cyn's guide already but if that doesn't work out, I will look into your suggestion further!!

Thanks again,
Sally
