Our guide was so knowledgeable and made the subject matter accessible. The tour was very balanced and well paced. We will definitely use you again! We had a wonderful time!
The Last Supper was on the top of the list of things to do during our short stay in Milan. I could not have been more pleased to have Freda as our guide. She very knowledgeable and animated. She educated us with enthusiasm! The pace of the tour was good! Would highly recommend!
An outstanding guide who was extremely knowledgable and passionate. The pre sites and the short walk thru the city was interesting and informative. THE LAST SUPPER to finally get to view it after all these years. Its extremely difficult to get in, the church seels tickets but never seems to have any available. Then confusion when out time was given to another group. Our guide worked hard to get us in thankfully. You must line up prior to entry, then go thru tqo spaces being held in the last to cool down so as not to disturb the atmosphere in the room. Finally you are allowed to entry and fall under the paintings magical spell.Since the size of the griups are strickly controlled you have room to move about freely and to visually enjoy your time with the painting. It starts about six feet up from the floor level. After 20 years on restoration its strikes one as being in poor condition but we are lucky that it survived. Simply look at it. Move from side to side and the eyes of Jesus appear to follow you. It envelops you like a breaking wave.
Must be considered one of the worlds most outstanding work produced by man. Its worth the effort it takes to get to see it. You are strictly herded out by the staff after your allotted time. Good for them! Go to see it!
Our tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and seamed happy to share with the group. Loved the ear phones so I could hear everything she said. The painting left me speachless. Also seeing Lenoardo's writings and sketches was a once in a lifetime event. I would recommend this to everyone.
Content, delivery and administration extremely well handled.
The Guide was exceptional catering for both beginner and seasoned tourists.
Fantastic guide who was very passionate about what she was presenting. The Ambrosian is well worth a look; the feeling of history in the library room is amazing. Lots of information imparted between venues. The microphone system works well if you want to stop and take photos you can still hear the commentary.
Unable to buy tickets to the 'last Supper' unless buy way in advance so was a great way to see it.
Our guide knows a lot about art and art history. She communicated in a very entertaining manner and made the tour very interesting.
Very impressed - guide was engaged and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed it
Excellent guide with interesting and thoughtful insights.
The Last Supper is truly breathtaking and this tour was a must!
I loved our tour guide, she was very personable and was very knowledgable about Leonardo da Vinci. Her knowledge and explanation of the Last Supper was excellent
Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about "The Last Supper" painting, She did a fantastic job of explaining the painting, which made the experience that more meaningful. By the end of the tour we felt like we had a wonderful understanding of Leonardo da Vinci and Milan.
This tour is a must-do when in Milan! Our tour guide was very passionate about the subject and managed to actually share her passion with everyone. What an experience to be standing in front of Da Vinci's Last Supper painting - simply breathtaking! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
We never thought we would enjoy this as much as we did. Lorella was beyond fabulous. She was so passionate about the subject and kept us completely inthralled right up to the viewing of The Last Supper. I don't think we have ever enjoyed a guided tour as much!!! Would highly recommend seeing this through her eyes!!!
Marco was amazingly informed, interesting, and well-spoken. He gave lots of information about the art, the history, and the settings of everything we saw. He kept checking as we walked in the unusual heat wave from the museum to the church, even giving us a short reprieve in St. Maura (which was beautiful).
Something that could make the trip better might be for him to distribute water bottles 1/2 way through or after the walk. It was really hot and that would have been a nice touch. His assistant could bring them, or he could give them out at the start of the walking part. We appreciated all his information, and pacing. It was a wonderful experience for us. Also at the end, some information (maybe a small map) to show us where we were would have helped orient us as to where we ended up. Grazie. I would recommend this trip.
Excellent guide, enjoyable tour. Tickets to last supper sell out, we heard others complaining that they could not get any, so worth it just to ensure you get in to see the painting.
This was a very interesting tour. The guide was very knowledgable of the cultural, political and religious history of Milan and Leonardo. It was great to walk through the old part of the city and to have significant sites pointed out. He was able to give a good historical context to Leonardo's work. Although we primarily signed on to the tour to see The Last Supper, this tour was really enriching. The only downside, and outside of the guide's influence, was the hot weather in largely shadeless Milan streets. Despite that, I would recommend this tour as an accompaniment to visiting the painting. (By the way, the limited numbers allowed in for each viewing make it very easy to see properly, unlike a certain other famous painting by the same painter)
This was the main reason that I started my trip in Milan, A lovely late afternoon sroll through part of the city I did't know and as a bonus a look at the Atlantic codex of Da Vinci. We had plenty of time to see close up The Last Supper which is so much more impressive than any reproduction.Marilyn.Australia.
Excellent. Our guide was very knowledgeable about every aspect of the tour and many other sites as we travelled from one point to the next. It led me to make plans to visit other places while I was here. Highly recommend this group.
I really enjoyed this Tour. Although, out tour guide was initially flustered as his assistance was somewhat delayed, he was able to buffer the situation and carry on professionally thru the rest of the tour. He appeared very knowledgable about Leonardo da Vinci and other famous artists of the same time period. I was awe struck by what I learned and experienced during this tour. I feel priviledged that I was able to be see the original "Last Supper" painting and get a personalized view of the famous work of art that many people only see and hear of it in books or cinema. This is a must "see"
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.
Excellent! We thoroughly enjoy the tour and we learnt more than we expected from the tour guide. She was very thorough and being an art historian it was worth for visitors to find the time to be part of the tour! The Bibliotheca Ambrosiana where the tour start is a hidden gem in Milan and visitors should make time to visit its superb collection. Worth every cents and minute to part take in this tour!

Excellent, excellent, excellent.
The guide was very informed and passionate about Da Vinci's works. The biggest problem was finding the starting point for the tour. The guide mentioned that most tourists have difficulty finding it ....so allow ample time.
