Katerina was a perfect host for our night out on the canal. She was able to give us a quick history of Milan while introducing us to the canal and its night life. We went back the next night!

This tour was so much fun! The first stop was a wine shop where the owners told us all about the local wines and we were invited to taste with the promise if we didn't like it, we could choose another before they filled our glass with our choice! The tour took us through the hip and hopping canal area filled with nightspots, cafes and restaurants. The appetizers were hearty and plentiful and I highly recommend the tour!

This tour was very nice, with lots of wine and food, don't worry about dinner plans on this night. Our tour guide Alice` was great, what a passion she had for her city. It was a part of the city we would have never known about. I definately recommend this tour.

This tour was full of food, wine and fun! Valentina was our awesome and super sweet tour guide. She was very informative about the history of the canals and Milan. Loved the places we wined and dined, plenty to eat and drink. The area comes alive in the evening and is a wonderful place to stroll and dine. There is such a pleasant ambiance and good for all ages. I would not have known about this area without the tour. If you need to grab a water after the tour, stop by the 7-24 shop right around the corner from the metro meeting place and say hello to Daejon. He also helped with the metro since there was a taxi strike.
I would definitely recommend this tour.

Coraddo was an excellent and well informed guide. Enjoyed Milan's hidden gem, not sure why it is not better known.

Our first day arrival in Italy, and wanted a brief tour to get a feel for the area near where we staying. The tour was a small intimate group our guide was an excellent host. The tour started only 3 blocks from our hotel, near the Porta Genova train station. We visited several cafés and tasted some different wines and had some small tapas. It was very enjoyable and would recommend this tour if you want a brief insight of the Naviglio Canal district of Milan. Highly recommend to visit this area at night wonderful places to eat, safe area with families and couples strolling around the area.
