This tour was very good and very informative.
Our tour guide was excellent. Although it is a walking tour, you do not walk far or too much.
Good quality sound system.

We stay in Rome. Before looking into this tour there were no excursion Rome. First we would have to ride the train from Rome to Milan. We decided to go to this tour knowing that it would be challenge for us since we are from a small town and never ride on the train before esp in Europe. As we manage to get on the train at 3:30 am our way there, I received a phone call from the tour company that the tour guy called in sick and request to cancel our tour. I told told the tour company that its our last day in Italy and we are looking forward for this tour and we are half way from Rome to Milan riding the train. She told us that she will find try to find someone but not promise if she going to find any tour guys if not then our excursion will have to cancel. After an hours of frustration and disappointing, the tour company called back and told us she found someone. We met our tour lady name Clara. She is wonderful, very knowledge about the history of Milan. We learn so much about Italy and Milan. She was very patient with us. Answered a lots of our questions and basically our photographer for the day. Overall including the train and the excursion cost us around $500. I would have been a waste of our time and money without our wonderful tour lady Clara. Thank you Clara. You're wonderful and very passionate of you job.

This is a must do! Emilio really made this day enjoyable! He was so insightful and had a true passion for his city. It is interesting to discover the little secrets the city has to offer. Emilio will show and tell you things you would never find on your own!

Excellent in every way. Value for money without a doubt. Bianca has an amazing knowledge of her home city of Milan. She managed to transfer her enthusiasm and interest in the city to her audience. She went way beyond what we had expected. She was by far the best guide of all the walking tours we had taken, both in Milan and Venice.

I was lucky enough that I was the only bookee that afternoon so I basically had a private tour. my tourguide was Bianca I think? and she was fantastic. answered all my questions, helped me locate some places to see. I only had a few hours in Milan and this was exactly what I was looking for. Highly recommend if you want to get a good overview of the main sights.

We booked this tour in advance to ensure that we wouldn't miss seeing and hearing about the highlights of Milan's historical and cultural past during our brief stay in the city. We were very glad we did. Bianca was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, providing a wonderfully in-depth review of the Milan's history as we toured the central city. She devoted particular attention to the art and architectural styles reflected in the current cityscape. The tour started at the Sporza Castle and culminated with visits to La Scala, the Galleria and the Duomo, but we saw so many less famous sites in between. As expected, this tour does not include tours inside most of the museums and other notable buildings, but Bianca provided information that would help tourers decide where to plan follow-up visits. There was a lot of walking involved, so we were glad we had dressed comfortably including wearing our best walking shoes. We arrived in Milan after an overnight trans Atlantic flight, joining Bianca for our tour almost immediately after checking into our hotel. Her friendly and engaging style and the information-packed sightseeing walking tour she provided were the perfect antidotes for jet lag.

We had a great introduction to Milan with Maria.... A great tour, 2 hours was the perfect amount of time for us and our two kids 10 and 12... A great mix of history and culture. She even managed to point out the best ice-cream place which the kids were very grateful for :
Would highly recommend :
