When I booked this tour I thought that it was rather expensive but now realise that it was an excellent well researched informative tour. Our guide was excellent and we liked the "walkie talkies" so that one was able to keep up with the dialogue without constantly having to finding a vantage point.
We would highly recommend this tour to anyone who has an interest in art - it certainly expanded our knowledge and understanding.

Totally awesome. Our tour guide was amazing. She was so knowledgeable and we so so enjoyed all the information and sites she shared with us. This tour should not be missed if you go to Milan. Thanks so very much..... Viator made it so easy to see a special tour in Milan on a tight schedule. Thanks again a couple from Texas.
Very good and knowledgeable guide was sarah.Really enjoyed the tour but as it was only a half day tour so still not enough time to see everything to do with leonardo.So would definitely recommend in the morning you do your own tour with audioguide of pinacoteca ambrosiana at your own pace to fully immerse yourself in the codex.
Just as an aside if you are a fan of leonardo would definitely recommend the leonardo museum next to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
Yes i think it was a bit pricy 18 euros including audioguide.But it does stay open to 11pm and has some of the best lifesize models, computer screens explaining everything in english i have ever seen and i have been to other leonardo museums in italy.
Although still slightly sickened at how companies like Viator buy up all the available tickets in order to force people to pay their prices if they want to see this wonderful piece of art (they even had spare tickets they had to throw away), I must say that our guide (the wonderful Charles) more than made up for that through his inspired, insightful, and inspiring tour through the town. The itinerary was only loosely followed but nobody minded as he made us understand both Da Vinci and the city of Milan, while also suggesting unexpected tourist attractions and some very nice dinner options. Try to schedule this for the start of your stay, because it will influence it for the better!
This half-day tour (really, about three hours) was superb. Our guide was both entertaining and exceedingly well-versed in art and architectural history, and managed to make things interesting for an audience with a wide range of background knowledge (from much, to little). A stop for gelato between the Pinoteca Ambrosiana and the Last Supper was just right to give the group a chance to get off its feet, enjoy a treat, and prepare for the experience of seeing the Last Supper. Highly, highly recommended!
the tour was amazing! charles, the guide, was inspiring and funny too, a good combination for a relaxing vacation with some knowledge in it. thanks!
After traveling in Italy for more than 15 years, it was the first time I booked a tour. I found Viator online while searching to purchase tickets to see The Last Supper in Milan. Knowing that only a specific amount of tickets were sold each day to view The Last Supper and that my stay in Milan was limited, I search to see if I could purchase the tickets in advance as to not to miss the chance to see this great work. I was extremely impressed with Viator's website, from the great amount of choices and information to the ease of booking online, quality and professionalism of the tour and tour guide. Booking this 3 hour tour was well worth the cost without the stress of trying to be on time to get tickets to view The Last Supper. Included in the tour was a viewing of some of the pages of DaVinci's Codex Atlaniticus in the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana. This was an incredible experience as well as being able to view other famous works in the museum. From here we walked to see The Last Supper as the tour guide gave us information about Milan along the way. I enjoyed the walk very much and booking the 4PM - 7PM tour was a great idea. The heat of the day had past and the color of the city very pretty as we walked. The tour guide was extremely informative and she was able to answer any questions presented to her (in perfect English). Group size was not too large which made it more enjoyable and less confusion. All group members were given an earphone set to hear the tour guide clearly every step of the way. This was very useful inside the museum which enabled me to be able to walk around while the tour guide spoke. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to view The Last Supper without the worry of missing out on a ticket. A memorable afternoon!
We were pleasantly surprised by how good this tour was! We really just wanted to see The Last Supper, but the tour round the museum beforehand with Sarah, our excellent guide, made the experience of seeing The Last Supper even better. We would highly recommend this tour and would doing something similar again with Viator.
My husband and I witnessed something magical, the original painting of Leonardo da Vinci. Standing in front of painting brought us back to the 14th century, what an amazing experience. Maria P
An excellent and well led tour by Sarah. I recommend this tour highly.
This was a great tour! We throughly enjoyed our experience. Our guide was wonderful, very knowledgable and friendly. The tour was well organized and ended with the viewing of the Last Supper in a small group setting that made seeing this beautiful masterpiece very special. We highly recommend this experience.
We loved this tour, and especially the tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable, very personable, and she made the tour interesting at every opportunity. What a treat! Oh, and The Last Supper was awesome, too!
Learned so much history about Leonardo on this tour. The last supper is absolutely beautiful. This tour was worth the price.
It was excellent, Sarah was so knowledgeable and passionate about leonardo, the 3 hours went in a wink. It started on time, the staff were good and polite.
Guide was amazing he gave heaps of extra information and advise highly recommend
This was a wonderful way to see the Last Supper and other work by da Vinci. The guide was very informative and it really helped to have the background to the man himself and his work. There is a lot of walking and we took the advice of other people who written other reviews not to walk too much before the tour. It was great to be in a small group and to have a personal stereo system to hear every word of the guide even when we wandered off to look at different things. Thoroughly enjoyable and we fully recommend it.
The tour was excellent, with radio links to the guide making it very easy to hear at all times. The visit to 'The Last Supper' was put into context before the visit and lots of interesting bits on the way through the city.
Logging on to the website to print the voucher proved problematic and needed a password reset. Perhaps email a *.pdf of the voucher along with the confirmation or reminders instead of just relying on the website. Otherwise well organised.
Fantastic! Our guide was lively and knowlegeable. He even told us about the best places to have happy hours, gelato, and chocolate. Good inside tips.
Expert guide, with very good teaching component to tour. Highly recommended. One small suggestion: provide small map to make location of starting point relative to Duomo/ central Milan more clear.

The guide is very knowledgeable and I have learned a lot about Leonardo da Vinci as well as his paintings.
Excellent! The guide was vey knowledgeable abut art history and made it very enjoyable.
This was one of our best tours during our visit to Italy. Even though it was a gloomy, rainy, day in Milan, our guide kept things very light and entertaining even when we were walking through a downpour. He was very passionate about da Vinci and the history of Milan and we loved The Last Supper. We highly recommend this tour and the tour guide.
