Despite pouring rain, Charles did an excellent job. The Last Supper was very special, I had not realised that it covered a complete wall. The contrast with the Crucifixion scene was immense. Charles' explanation clarified everything. Il Duomo also interesting as is the Galleria and La Scala. Catherine C Mason
A great tour for the first timers in Milan. The guide was very friendly, witty and informative.
The best part is that you get to see 'The Last Supper' without any longer term booking or much wait.
With our local host Raphaella as guide, this was an ideal way to start any visit to a city. We usually take walking tours and bus tours as the quickest way to acquaint ourselves with European cities. The added bonus with this one was the immediate access to the Duomo and the Last Supper. Friendly banter ensued throughout the tour and our guide answered most of the questions aimed at her. Milan is packed with both architectural and artistic gems and the locals seem to uphold its place as a fashion capital. We were shown several curiosities and the whole experience whetted our appetite to seek out other places after the walk ended. The earpieces with the commentary device really added to the time we spent examining Milan's many delights. Top value and highly recommended.
Although raining on morning of tour , Charles made it interesting and informative .
Skip the line for last supper was worth the tour price on its own.
A great guide for our trip around Milan. the Last Supper was particularly interesting. I felt that we could have been taken into the Duomo and given a talk about it, rather than being left to our own devices and just looking at it from outside.
Excellent guide. Not too much walking for older tourists. Easy way to see the Last Supper, La Scala and the Galleria and Duomo Piazza with plenty of advice on how to continue sight seeing.
Fantastic tour which covered a lot in a short amount of time - ideal to give you a good overall feel of the historic centre of Milano. Our guide - if I remember correctly her name was Alice - was excellent! She made the whole experience come alive and you could feel the passion for the city she was born in and clearly loves. The climax was the viewing of The Last Supper which is almost a spiritual experience in itself and leaves you in awe and wonder. A definite tour to do to get your initial bearings of Milano, particularly if you are short of time.
We don't usually go on guided trips, but this was the only way we could see "The last Supper". The tour guide made this trip very worthwhile -,she was knowledgeable and friendly. We were able to go in La Scala as well.We revisited Milan Castle and the Triennial Museum on our own, partly because the tour had included a walk through the courtyard.
Highly recommend this tour. The Duomo was very impressive and then walking around parts of Milan and learning about the history from our local guide Alicia was perfect. She really knew her stuff and was very passionate about her city. The last supper was breathtaking. I am not a religious man however it was an absolutely breathtaking experience.
The architecture, the buildings, the history of Milan are incredible in themselves and this tour provided a delightful mix of walking, bus riding, and time on our own to explore these sights. What truly made this tour outstanding was our tour guide, Fedra, and the friendly bus driver. Fedra made the places and the history come alive. Her explanation at The Last Supper was dramatic and memorable. I felt almost as if I was next to the painter as he was painting it. I will never look at this painting in the same way again. This tour came at the end of our 2-day stay in Milan and it was a wonderful way to remember the city.
Our tour round Milan was exceptional. Would not hesitate to recommend. The guide was first class and the time in the Last Supper was enhanced by his expertise.. The amplifier system they use whilst you walk round outside means you miss nothing.
The guide was really outstanding, and the Last Supper is a must!
It was worth purchasing the tour just to get in to see the "Last Supper". Leonardo's Codex was also interesting and it was nice to pass through Sforza Palace on the way there. All in all, an adequate trip for a quick tour through Milan.
We actually didn't want to have to take a walking tour in order to see the Last Supper painting, but got 'stuck' taking it because we didn't book the 'painting only' tour company soon enough and it was sold out. What a wonderful thing to happen. Our guide was fantastic! She was informative and playful in her dialogue. She gave us tips on where to go to dinner that night (Brera District) and we were so glad we followed her recommendation. We had decent, but not spectacular weather, but had such a great time, we didn't notice the unseasonal cold. We stopped in a small cafe for pit stops and hot beverages about 1/2 way through, and a nice break to sit for a few minutes. We had just gotten off a 14 day tour of Italy, and thought we had done a tour of Milan. Boy were we wrong. The microphones were great and she took us to places that were off the beaten path of tourists so it was nice walking through the different areas. I would highly recommend you take this tour, it was worth the extra money to see Milan through a local person's eyes. And the painting, of course, was something we couldn't miss the chance to see.
It was an excellent tour. Alexander was a very good guide extremely informative. The Last Supper was worth the whole trip to Milan.
