Great tour
Jacqui_B, Sep 2023
Amazing! Loved spending time with Sze, he was so knowledgeable about Milanese fashion. I learned so much about the origins of Milanese RTW and how to apply the ideas. Bought a dress at La Double J and a top from Missoni, which I love! Also great tip for pastries at Marchesi for my 8 year old daughter. Thanks Sze!
Great day. A must for people interested in the history of fashion and current fashion.
Alan_F, Aug 2023
Great day. Our guide, Sze, was very knowledgeable, friendly and interested in our views/areas of interest. Would highly recommend.
Fashionably Impressed!
Wanda_A, Aug 2023
Sara uniquely showed us the fashion landmarks in Milan. We were able to experience the role Milan plays in the fashion industry. Loved Sara’s enthusiastic personality and amazing knowledge! Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Milan!
Neh. Do something else
Olga_K, Aug 2023
We had anticipated a lot from the tour, aiming to delve into Italian fashion history and gain insights into local designers. However, our experience primarily consisted of strolling through various "AlltheSameEverywhere" designer stores, a slightly underwhelming vintage store, and a handful of mid-range Milanese shops. The highlight of the tour turned out to be a leisurely walk through different areas of Milan, an aspect easily replicable using Google Maps.

The fashion tour was amazing. Zie, the guide, has a lot of knowledge about Italian and global fashion. I highly recommend.
Sze is Excellent
Laura_M, Jul 2023
Beyond wonderful. Sze was fantastic. We so enjoyed our time exploring Milan and learning the history of fashion as well as other fashion related stories. Sze is extremely knowledgable and I appreciated the few personal additions made to include our interests. If you have an opportunity to book this tour with Sze, please do so.
An Unforgettable Experience.
Evan_S, Jul 2023
We cannot express enough how wonderful the “Treasures of Milan: Fashion and Design Private Tour” was! Sara provided a personalized tour of Milan exclusively for our family of four, and her expertise in the fashion industry made the experience all the more special. She asked about our interests and delivered beyond our expectations. Sara’s warmth and courteousness made us feel welcome everywhere we went, even in high-end stores. We never felt pressured to buy anything, and Sara also included cultural destinations that enhanced our experience of the city. Her knowledge of Milan's history and geography helped us get oriented and appreciate the city even more. If you're planning a visit to Milan, we highly recommend booking this tour for an unforgettable experience.
Pure Magic - Highlight of Europe
Becky_B, Jul 2023
This tour was the highlight of five countries. This was booked as an afterthought, and expectations were low. Wow, did we underestimate Milan and particularly Anna. My child is artistic and sensitive. I feel like Anna saw her and took us to see fashion and all kinds of artistic spaces. It was a blur of shops and art and beauty, It was only possible because Anna obviously knows everyone and everything in town, and this is a SPECIAL town for creativity and beauty. This was lightning in a bottle we will remember the rest of our lives. It was all Anna who made the magic. I regret leaving Milan, and particularly her.
Great tour.
Nicholas_V, Jun 2023
Sze was an excellent guide. He gave a clear explanation of how the Milan fashion industry developed, where it has been, and where it is today. He pointed out various material and design points as we walked by and through countless fashion houses. He is intelligent and easy to understand.
Good shopping, bad history
Andrew_B, Jun 2023
This is a great tour for those who would like to spend a few hours with someone in the fashion industry, first on the runway and then setting up shoots. It is not good for someone looking for the history of fashion in Milan. We were disappointed.

Way underpriced. It was amazing.
Jami_H, Jun 2023
Me and my mom had a great time! She’s super into fabrics and shoes and our guide took us to the most beautiful places. I ended up leaving the tour with a new purse, some jewelry, and my new favorite perfume from a great shop. We visited two terrific consignment shops. Would absolutely recommend.
If you like fashion!
Gary_G, Jun 2023

James_H, Jun 2023
Sze was a great guide who blended his knowledge of the fashion business with the history and culture of the area. The time went by very quickly!
Wonderful introduction to the fashion industry in Milan!
gjharding, Jun 2023
Sara was an amazing guide and took us to all sorts of wonderful independent boutiques and larger stores, explaining trends, materials and methods! As my niece is studying fashion and textiles, she loved hearing about Sara's career in the industry and lots of useful hints & tips for my niece to start hers. Thank you so much for sharing your time and life story with us, Sara. We would definitely recommend!
Our tour was incredible!...
Mary_B, Jun 2023
Our tour was incredible! Our guide, Sara, was fun, knowledgeable, and engaging throughout the whole tour. She knew all the local spots and lots of history to contextualize the experiences. 10/10 would recommend!
Slightly disappointed
Jill_S, May 2023
Francesca was so nice and communicative . She needed to reschedule our tour and we were ok with that as it was something I really wanted to do . I was alittle disappointed as it was basically a guide to shopping and was hoping for alittle more of the history of fashion in Milan . I take some responsibility as I should have researched that more in depth . Because it was rescheduled and it was at the end of our last day in Milan , we were exhausted and cut the “tour” short .

Our guide ze was charming and knowledgeable, he explained Milan fashion in a historical context showed us examples of some designers and personalized it to our interests …very informative and certainly relevant to the city Milan has become!! Highly recommend
Worth every Euro!
Trent_E, May 2023
This tour was the highlight of our Milan experience! My husband booked this special one on one personal shopping experience and Francesca did not disappoint! She fulfilled every request I made, and was genuinely happy to take us all over the city to explore her hidden gems! The vintage shop was the highlight of the tour, and where I made my favorite purchase! Hands down worth every penny! She customized the entire experience!
Best fashion tour experience!
alan_p, Apr 2023
If you're interested in fashion, this tour is totally worth it! The tourguide, Sara, brought us to nice boutiques and vintage shops. She also told us whatever we need to know about fashion in Milan- tips and fashion secrets only locals know!
