Good introduction to the city
Petr_M, May 2023
Francesco was interesting, informative and fun. He gave us a good introduction to the city. All the main sights in Milan are quite close to each other, so there isn't a huge amount of walking involved.
Sara was our guide. We...
Leslie_S, May 2023
Sara was our guide. We had a private walking tour and learned so much about Milan. She brought us to places we never would have found. Very knowledgeable and great personality. 100% recommend!
Local Experience in Milan
Heta_S, May 2023
Salvatore was a great host, with a wealth of information and a good sense of humour. He showed us the 3 faces of Milan and shared lots of little facts that only a local can. The tour was well planned and executed.
Wonderful Tour
Jeff_S, Apr 2023
Our guide had tremendous knowledge. She told several interesting stories. We had a excellent view of one of the world’s most famous paintings.
Beth_O, Apr 2023

No communication with starting point.
Vivia_J, Apr 2023
Couldn't find the starting point. No clear directions. Not even with google maps. So disappointing 😞 I lost all the money!!!! This was a very bad bad experience. Will not book again.

Great guide: Armando was professional & friendly. The 2 1/2 hr walk went by in no time at all!
Margaret_R, Mar 2023
Seeing the Sforza castle & how immense it is, was amazing! We also walked through La Brera & picked up some good tips on restaurant.
Highly recommend
AnaCristina_F, Mar 2023
Saara gave us a super history lesson! It was very special. We already knew Milan and she took us to new places, totally unknown and surprising for us. Very good!! Saara has a lot of knowledge to pass on to tourists. We highly recommend this tour.
Perfect way to see Milan

Clarissa was an amazing tour guide! She was very informative and kind! An Excellent overview of Milan.
Fantastic overview tour of Milan
Monica_C, Jan 2023
We only had one full day in Milan and Salvatore led us on a comprehensive tour of the city which included highlights like the outside of the Duomo, Sforza Castle, the Galleria, the opera house and hidden gems like residential areas where we saw the Vertical Forest building, Corso Como shopping area and the canal district. Salvatore had a dry sense of humor and was very knowledgeable about the city’s history. We traveled by metro which allowed us to cover a lot of ground in 3 hours. He also gave us excellent recommendations for lunch and dinner restaurants. I would highly recommend this tour if you have a limited time in Milan or if you want an intro to the city to get your bearings.
Great option for a small group or couple
Erika_E, Dec 2022
Salvatore was an amazing guide! My husband and I prefer a private tour so we can customize when needed. Salvatore took us to the main attractions in Milan, as well as less touristy areas. It definitely felt like we were exploring Milan and what it has to offer. I recommend this option if you have a small group or simply just want a more private option.
informative and a great experience overall
alejandro_p, Dec 2022
we had a really great time during our guided tour; Alessandro was such a nice guy, he took us all over the major and hidden sites of Milán. Informative, friendly and very open to any kind of questions.

This was a very nice tour where we saw the highlights of Milan. Francesca was very knowledgeable about Milan. We walked all over the city and she even provided a dinner recommendation. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Disappointed Tourists
Frank_K, Oct 2022
We’ve taken several of your tours and have always enjoyed them. This one was very disappointing, was not aware it was a walking tour. Had I known I would never have taken it. My husband has a difficult time walking. And our guide was Ok, we did not get our snack or drink as was listed on tour package, then he just left us on own to get back to our hotel. Very upsetting! Hope the trip we booked in Rome will be better!

Fun and Informative Tour
Eileen_K, Oct 2022
Armando was a well informed and gracious host, showing us some parts of Milan we never would’ve seen ourselves, as well as interesting history about main sites like the Duomo. We had a great time!
Fantastic Tour of Milan
Renee_C, Oct 2022
I had time for only a short visit to Milan, but I feel like I got a great taste of what the city has to offer. Elisa was a wonderful tour guide who tailored the tour to give me a full experience of the city on my short visit. She knew so much and supplemented what she told me with pictures and even gave me a map of the city so I could find my way back to the train station. Her enthusiasm for the city was contagious, and I want to visit again! Thank you!
Wonderful Private Tour
