A morning of historical architecture!
suzskop, Nov 2022
Our guide was so knowledgeable. She is an art historian and really loves her work. Since it was our first time in Milan, she also took the time to share other recommendations on where to go and eat! We had a great morning with her!

Paivi was very informative and friendly. We had a great private tour with her learning about Milan. She provided restaurant recommendations in addition to the tour.

Ana was an amazing guide- rich narrative and all the details that make the stories of Milan worth telling and seeing!
Awesome guide
Kathleen_K, Jul 2022
Anna was awesome. She explained everything in detail. She was so patient with our flight being delayed and us arriving late. She checked in on us throughout the tour. Highly recommend.
Bravo Valeria

Our tour guide, Valeria, was one of the best tour guides we've ever experienced. Other people apparently felt the same; strangers would walk up to us; Valeria would welcome them with open arms, and they would tell us that she was the best tour guide in Milan. And she was.
What a Treat
Jocelyn P, Sep 2019
This was a private tour by guide for four persons. We were delighted to discover that our private guide on a trip to Lake Como, Eddy, would be our guide around Milan. Once again, he did not disappoint. The tour of the Duomo included the rooftop tour. He was very thorough in his lectures about the construction and continued maintenance of the structure. We walked as a group over to La Scala and then to Sforza Castle. It was a lovely morning. It was also Fashion Week in Milan. This only added to the excitement. A very good itinerary with an excellent guide. If you only have one day in Milan, this is a great way to spend it.

Valeria was our guide on this tour and was absolutely AMAZING! She is so knowledgeable, friendly and professional. She highlighted our areas of interest on this tour to assure we received the maximum benefits based on our specific interests. I highly recommend this tour and if Valeria is your guide, consider yourself extremely blessed!

We initially missed our tour due to late flight and lost bag but Emilio graciously rescheduled!!! So glad. He was an awesome guide. Loved the Duomo.

Layton M, May 2017
Our expected guide cancelled at the last minute but Emilio did a great job showing us around town. We walked through most of Old Milan and its neighborhoods. He was able to bypass the long Duomo line and showed us many out of the way interesting places we would have missed on our own. We had only limited time in Milan so using Emilio probably made the difference in our overall attitude and appreciation of Milan.

Our guide Katia was outstanding! She was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and willing to accommodate our interests. Her insight on the Duomo's architecture made seeing this magnificent structure even more enjoyable. At the end of our tour, she offered suggestions for restaurants and other areas of Milan that might interest us.

Karin H, Oct 2016
I was in Milan on business for 2 days. This was my second visit to Milan and it wasn't a favorite city. In an effort to try to better appreciate all that Milan has to offer, I signed up for the tour. My guide was Anna, and we met around 9 am on Sunday morning. Anna is a delight and very, very, VERY knowledgeable WOW! Her command of English is excellent she is also very professional. Although I will probably never love Milan as I do some other European cities, Anna's vast knowledge made me appreciate the opportunity to visit again. I will continue to use Viator as I travel.
