excellent tour especially when i only had 24 hours in milan-hit all the highlights i wanted to see -except the sforza castle which i had luckily gone through before starting this tour. milan was very crowded, esp at the cathedral-which is amazing! tour has special entrance which is much faster, and gives lots of information about each place you visit. was thrilled to get to see the last supper, and this tour was the easiest and most informative way to do so. was big group, but turned out all spoke english, so entire tour done in english only-and guide had great concern that no one got separated during tour.
This was an easy and enjoyable tour. It was great to skip the line and get in to see the Last Supper. We needed to leave the tour early, and our guide told us exactly where to go to find our apartment that we had rented.
Totally brilliant! Not just because of the range of 'stuff' we saw in the time available, but 1 the unfolding realisation that there is sooo much to see in Milano, you just might have to go looking for it a liitle -- ie. it tends not to be 'in your face' like it might be in Firenza, for instance. And I have to say, quite a few gems were revealed that you'd likely never find by accident -- you'd have to know that they're there.
And 2, the Italian little blonde tour guide sorry, forgotten her name combined her considerable art history knowledge with her own particular sense of humour, and it changed the event from something potentially quite dry -- while still illuminating -- to something with a larger range of insights and not just a few laughs along the way about the Italian, and Milanese, way of being, in relation to the art we were seeing.
Very easily very well worth it.
Chiara was a wonderful guide, very entertaining and knowledgeable. We saw a lot more than we expected and learnt interesting stories about MIlan, art, politics and religion. Highly recommended!
I didn't even realize it was going to be a walking tour too. We got to see the last supper and some other gem's with our great tour guide, i think her name was kari but she was awesome! Smart and funny!
Seeing the Last Supper is an experience not to be missed. Our guide, Ana, was wonderful, full of passion and knowledge. She made the tour particularly memorable.
This was a wonderful experience and a highlight of our trip. The woman who led the tour was articulate and generous with her answers to our many questions. The bus was spacious and clean. We did not feel rushed and felt we got a good value for our expenditure.
For someone who doesn't have a lot of time for sight seeing this is the perfect tour and I would highly recommend it. There is a short bus ride from the start point where the guide points out several historical features of the city. Well worth the money and very well organized. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and was easy to understand and very accommodating.
Great way to see The Last Supper without the shifty ticket brokers or waiting in massive lines. Keep in mind that they limit the groups of folks to see this painting. You are only allowed 15 minutes and while that my seem short, it's really about right unless your an art scholar. Plenty of history to read about and this place is really set up to handle tourist flows. Highly recommended.
Our tour guide, Charles, was wonderful. His knowledge of art and art history made our visit very meaningful. It was quite moving being in front of The Last Supper. Our stop at the Church of San Maurizio was also eye opening and beautiful.
Our guide Pierfrancesco was absolutely a treasure! We really admired the depth of knowledge of all the architectural and historical details that he shared with us. He was so generous with information and showed us all the sites that we asked him to bring us to, including La Scala. We really didn't want this tour to end ever....Pierfrancesco happened to be a wonderful, very talented artist as well as we discovered . We put more than five stars for this tour. Highly, strongly recommended! Alex, Yelena.

The guide was particularly knowledgeable and added greatly to viewing The Last Supper by Da Vinci.
This was a wonderful experience and lesson on Milan's many times over-looked contribution to Italy and art's history. Michelangelo's canals, his paintings, the beautiful church museum and artifacts were outstanding. The Fashion Center of Italy definitely lived up to it's name. But, what will stick in our minds is the guide's beautiful and detailed description of Da Vinci's Last Supper and his intent to display his interpretation of the dinner participants. Shame on the priests who defaced part of the painting with a door. We loved the tour. Make your ticket purchase and reservations WAY AHEAD of your planned visit. It's 15 minutes for those of us lucky to get in and worth every penny!
Guide was prompt, very knowledgeable, and easy to understand. We loved the insights provided as we made our way from the Duomo to the Last Supper. We would term the Last Supper as an endangered piece of art and are thrilled that we had a chance to view it.
Charles was our tour guide and spoke perfect English, had a great personality, and provided a depth of knowledge to the art we were viewing that we never would have appreciated without his expertise. It was a very good tour, and The Last Supper is just a small part of the tour. Be ready to walk about a mile or so.
We had a very limited time in Milan and this tour provided us with the great opportunity to see the highlights of the city as well as the experience to see the Last Supper. It would be also useful as a starting point so the tourist can go back to places they want to visit in more details. Highly recommended.
The tour guide was amazing (Kiara?). I was late arriving, due to taking a wrong turn and getting lost, and missed the Last Supper portion of the tour. Kiara took me back at the end of the tour to make sure I got to experience this amazing work of art. She was absolutely incredible. Mille Grazie!!!!!
Absolutely fascinating. Full immersion into history of Milan and Leonardo Da Vinci's Last supper. The Pinacoteca Ambrosiana is incredible, particularly the Leonardo's Library with Leonardo's drawings and designs. The last supper blew our mind away. Truly spectacular.
Excellent, Nadia was lovely and really knowledgable. She gave a great insight into the last supper and the art/churches, and she clearly enjoyed what she does. I highly recommend it
Worth every euro paid. As a single traveller it was a great tour to get your bearings in the city. My tour guide was Lola I apologise if I've spelt it wrong! and she was clearly passionate about the city. I would recommend this to anyone with even a slight interest in art or history. Thank you
Excellent tour, well-organized, knowledgeable tour guide. My only wish is to offer a single-language tour, so that the participants could learn twice as much.
Beatrice was a terrific tour guide, very knowledgeable, articulate, and helpful. She went out of her way to help us with directions and suggestions for the rest of our time in Milan. You're lucky to have her in your organization.

Better signage at the beginning if the tour to know that the bus was for that particular tour. The tour itself was very good and the guide very helpful and pleasant. It was well organised. Would definitely recommend the tour.
The tour was great. It started with a short bus tour of the city - to show the major sights. The tour also included entry and a more detailed tour of the cathedral, the opera house, and the Last Supper. Highly recommended for your first day in Milan - good way to get acquainted with the sights!
The weather in Milan at the time of our tour was very hot. Our guide was informative and gave specific and clear instructions throughout the tour. We chose not to enter the Duomo as we had visited earlier in the day and we did not realise it was included as part of the tour because it was not specified in the literature. However, the rest of the tour was very enjoyable and enough time was allocated to the sights.
