The guide for this tour was absolutely terrific. He was a Frenchman but spoke perfect, even rapid English. His knowledge level about the varipus topics he covered was excellent. He could easily be a Professor at a good university and teach history. He also had a good raport with those on the tour. A good sense of humor too. Very knowledgeable on the Last Supper painting and all of its history.
Only downside, given that this was a walking tour on a hot afternoon. I would guess that the
distance covered was between 2 and 3 miles on mostly cobblestone streets. You need to be in good physical shape to take this tour.
Overall though probably one of the best tours taken.
EXCELLENT guide. Very knowledgeable. Tour delivered what was promised. Very good value for the money.
We were very fortunate to have Alice Salvagnin to be our guide. Her knowledge, her friendliness and her passion for Milan have been very impressive. We were particularly impressed by the explanations she offered us with regard to the "The Last Supper". We have heard nothing but the highest praise of Alice. Well done!
Excellent tour of the highlights of Milan, being the Duomo and The Last Supper, plus a walk around the main shopping precinct. Our guide was informative and humourous. It was certainly a great way to see The Last Supper, being able to just walk in with a small group and not have to queue for ages. Thank you.
The tour guide was fantastic. He included a great deal of information we would not get from a guidebook and created a relaxed atmosphere for the seemingly miles of walking.
This is a superb tour and was run by a passionate knowledgable guide (Alishia I think). Her description of the Last Supper painting brought tears to my eyes. We did not feel that great about Milan but this tour changed our attitude towards the city. Seeing Di Vinci's painting is a must if you have any soul and are in Milan.
This was an excellent tour, our guide,Charlie, was excellent, such a great sense of humour,and gave us some handy tips for Milan too.
Excellent tour - seeing The Last Supper was very moving as was the visit to the Duomo with it beautiful stained glass windows. We couldn't have asked for a better guide than Raphaela. She was knowledgeable, funny and politically aware. One of the best tours we have done.

Outstanding! Exactly how I wanted a taste of Milan's highlights and to finish off with such a moving moment with The Last Supper couldn't have been better. Our our guide, Alice, was proud of her city and demonstrated such with her enthusiastic approach to the tour. Loved it!
Great guide and sights. Viator website information said that we weren't going in the Duomo but we did and so one of our group was not dressed appropriately and could not enter. The guide said that some tour companies didn't update the information regularly. Not a big deal but the churches are really strict about covering up, so tour participants should know the updated program. Very good scheduling for the Last Supper and guide was very knowledgeable.
It was a very informative tour, the audio equipment worked well for the large group, and the guide gave us tips for the evening. Be prepared to walk at a good pace.
I can't say enough great things about this tour. Alice, our guide, was knowledgeable, intelligent, articulate, funny, pasionate about her home city of Milan, and delivered the "spot on" religious perspective to transcend the tour from something you could read in any guidebook; and brought it out from beyond the Duomo to a personal referential retrospective on Milan; it's development over the centuries, it's benefactors, detractors, neighborhoods, and the silliness of big city politics, all with a light and professional wit.
Re The Last Supper...simply tranformational, even if you aren't catholic, or an art student. Re Viator...I lost my voucher, and was able to contact them via my cell and they talked me through finding my tour, and connecting with my group. Once again, I can't say enough about the experience. I could have very easily been stuck wandering around Milanpissed about losing my reservation, but Viator came through for me. I would take this tour again in a heartbeat. There are no negatives. Open your wallet, spend the money, and you will be rewarded in spades.
This was an excellent way of getting to see the Last Supper painting and a great way to learn a lot about Milan and its history from a knowledgeable guide. A brief tour of the Duomo was very worthwhile and included access to the restricted area. Each tour participant was issued with an individual sound unit to hear the guides commentary - excellent idea.
The trip was fantastic, made especially so by our guide Alice Salvagnin. Alice was a beautiful host, mindful of the needs of her guests, yet kept the tour beautilfully on time without rushing us. She was infectious in her love for her city. She moved me emotionally as she explained the intricacies of the Duomo, the design of the Galleria and how she described Leonardo Da vinci's efforts to capture emotion in The Last Supper. As we travelled in Europe, we saw many walking tours happening around us when we visited the old cities, and to some extent we dreaded what our pre-booked Milan walking tour would be like. Well, it was exceptional and I would have no hesitation in recommending it. Our thanks to Alice for her hospitality and for so enthusiatically sharing her city with us. I want to go back and see more!
The logistics of the tour also worked very well: meeting location was easy to find, staff were well organised, the head-sets worked well and were easy to use and the tour allowed for a short break at a cafe with quality refreshments available at very modest prices and toilet facilities.
The story of the Last Supper had captivated me as a teenager but I never imagined that I would see it. Seeing it was unrushed and well organised. Seeing it as part of the Walking Tour allowed us plenty of time to look at the painting as well as having its intricacies described to us by a knowledgeable guide with outstanding communication skills. An inspiring and enjoyable afternoon. Cathie Plowman, Australia
