This tour with Alice was a highlight of my 2 weeks in Italy. She has an intimate knowledge and love of her city that made her tour interesting and lively. We toured the Duomo (the time there is short because it is only part of the tour so plan to go back if you want to explore it at your leisure) and Alice gave us some interesting insights into the Duomo's history and its construction. She made touring through the Galleria interesting even to those who do not care about shopping and gave us lots of background on Milan while walking the streets.
The Last Supper is definitely worth seeing. It is humbling to see da Vinci's work on the wall of a relatively minor church and to see the genius of his painting. Alice again made the experience richer because of her depth of knowledge about the art history.
I believe the tour would be worthwhile with any tour guide, but have to say we really lucked out getting Alice.
Note: It is a 1/2 day tour so plan to walk. If you only want to see the Last Supper, this is not the tour for you.
