What a wonderful way to get oriented to the city! I would absolutely recommend doing this tour on your first day in Milan. It provides a great way for you to learn a bit about the city, and then determine what you would like to do next.
Our guide Barbara was fantastic! She knows so much about Milan and its history.
My one suggestion: It would be great to have an option to add the actual attractions to this tour. In other words, it would be great if you could have the option to actually go inside the Duomo instead of just walking around it.
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.
Our tour guide met us on the front steps of the Duomo and then spent the next three hours giving us an outside tour of the Duomo, Galleria, La Scala, ending with Sforza Castle. We learned a great deal and it was a fabulous overview for our first day in Milan.
The tour was a little underwhelming, but that was not the tour guides fault. The tour of the Duomo was curtailed due to a mass being held unexpectedly. As we did not have a good idea of the itinerary, we had already seen the Castello, so she altered her plans and showed us the Brera district which was interesting.
The weather in Milan was unexpectedly rainy but David was punctual and cheerful throughout. He was extremely knowledgable about Milan, the Duomo and the Breara Museum. We was helpful also toward the end of the tour in suggesting a lunch place.
