This has to be one of the best, if not the best "food tour" in all of Sicily. Carmel is extremely knowledgeable about the island as a whole and will turn you on to some extremely "local" but amazing restaurants and sites, This is a must do when in Sicily!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

Just returned from 6 nights with Sicilian Food Tours. I can’t say enough about Carmel and her tour. My husband and I had so much fun. Carmel was extremely accommodating, has a super personality, and wonderful contagious laugh. Meeting and dining with her family was so special. The lunches at wineries were fabulous. Cooking classes and more!! I had a wonderful time and highly recommend Sicilian Food Tours.

Carmel’s charm, planning and “personality plus” made our group of disparate travelers aged 23-80 happy and at ease throughout a creative, comprehensive and fascinating itinerary. If you enjoy great food and wine, and a mix of history, culture, laughter and local color, this is the tour for you. I’d visited Sicily before, but Carmel provided a personal connection to our experience by introducing us to her family and friends, who just happen to be incredible makers of gelato, pizza, pasta and restaurateurs throughout southeastern Sicily. Having traveled with Tauck, Rick Steves and National Trust for Historic Preservation Group tours over the years, I can honestly say that Sicilian Food Tours far exceeded my expectations and may have spoiled me for more conventional group experiences henceforth. Can’t recommend Sicilian Food Tours highly enough. Hat tip to Valter DiCecco for adding so much to our journey with his humor and chef expertise!

My second adventure to Sicily with Carmel was as exciting as the first. I was lucky enough to join Carmel on her inaugural Sicilian Food Tour, the experience was amazing. We were exposed to All aspects of Sicily it’s food, wine, scenery and people. This tour was like going home, we saw different areas of Sicily, ate more beautiful food, and met great people. Again Carmel’s wonderful family make everyone feel included and loved. It was a blessing to see Zia Maria, The cousins and their beautiful families again. You need to experience them to understand their generosity and friendship. We shared many laughs with fun loving Carmel who goes out of her way to ensure that the group is satisfied. I highly recommend this tour (love you Carmel).

I joined Carmel Ruggeri on her Sicilian Food Tour in 2013. Travelling through beautiful Sicily with Carmel was an amazing adventure and I can't imagine anything else comparing. Carmel's family and friends embraced us, welcomed us into their lives, hearts and homes with such warmth and passion it was truly something wonderful. Two things you should know....1. Be prepared to make lifelong friends and 2. Be prepared to laugh until you cry. We had the added bonus of having the incredible photographer, Gina Milicia, with us. Carmel and Gina together are not just your guides they doubled as a Sicilian comedy duo. They are two very talented, very funny women who will make your trip unforgettable. I feel truly blessed to have experienced Sicily in such true Sicilian style and will cherish it always. Sincerest of thanks to you Carmel.
