This is what it says on the tin - shopping.... although I'm not quite sure why it's called a tour - it's a coach there and back! However, the outlet is clean and tidy and there were some bargains, but the usual outlet story - odd sizes and items only available in part - e.g. the top but no matching trousers, the skirt but no jacket.
Tip - you collect your tickets from the agent's shop, the bus drivers don't accept your printed off sheets. This was an annoyance with booking via Viator - it wasn't clear on the printed off receipts if that sheet or visiting another place to collect tickets was necessary, as sometimes your print-offs sufficed.
inconvenient as you need to get to the office and collect a ticket before boarding the bus, but it tis not stated before hand
The trip is definitely worth doing. I did not find the savings 50 to 70% more like 20-25% however it was fun alot of great stores. What really stood out was our driver. Total sweetheart.
The varieties and sizes in shops were limited. We're rather disappointed.
Was so hot the day we went but was worth going as it was the July's sales not sure how much cheaper it would be any other time
The tour was very well organised, but the outlet was disapointing, with very few options in any collection.
The day trip was well worth seeing the countryside and visiting the outlet mall, however the travel agency running the tour were very impatient with us and we had not been made aware of the need to swap our prepaid voucher pre embarkation despite having shown agents at the travel agency our voucher
Make sure to go early to the pick-up point and note that you have to exchange your voucher for actual tickets at the office a few meters away from the bus stop.
The organisiation for the travel was excellent, while at the outlet be warned watch your purse!

It was a nice gesture that the coach waited for the late arrivals but unfair to those who arrived on the scheduled 15 minutes before departure.
The Outlet was a fair distance away and that delay only added to a shorter shopping experience.
Good place for shopping, however, the collection at the outlets are very limited and not many on sale. We were able to go round the entire place with the time we had plus lunch!
1.5 hours to arrive and the shopping center was clean, organized and lovely. It was probably an hour too long for me, but I was by myself. Prices reduced from Milan for sure.
Hi good service left on time nice coach helpful driver on return with shopping a bit hard to find where tour left from in morning outlet well worth visit

This is basically just booking the bus to the shopping mall more than 1 hour away. Booked it through Viator as exchange rate given was better than converting and buying on the spot.
This shopping centre is great if your looking for high end and high fashion clothing. We weren't looking to spend hundreds of dollars on clothing that we probably wouldn't wear as it was very fancy. Some nice shops though.
It was ok. The mal itself not what we expected. The bus on the way to the mal had wi fi and good aire conditioning but the bus on the way back did not. It should be the same.
Beautiful spot and bus trip great but shopping disappointig as items still very expensive.
Fine day, but 8 hours felt like too long. The shopping centre holds mainly expensive designer outlets, so we kind of just wandered around for most of the time!
When you compare the discount price and the value of the euro to the dollar, it wasn't much of a deal. I went in the Versace store and the selection wasn't that good to me. I saw more attractive clothes at there Versus store in the Rome airport. The only reason I would visit is just for a nice day out and the experience.
The bus was efficient, driver was helpful and journey was scenic. However, the outlet did not have what I wanted in mind (in particular the big Italian brands) so it was a little pity. Got some other deals but I suggest go only if you have an extra day. Believe Milan city itself has much more to offer!
Somewhat disappointing. Although it has a number of brand names that Singaporeans are crazy over, the shops are small and the varieties are limited.
