This was a very good experience. The selection of foods and stores were both interesting and of very high quality. The tour guide was very good but not quite as good as a tour guide we have had in Paris. I would strongly recommend the tour and feel we did have a very good experience. The Brera district is beautiful and is a good place to experience food.
This is a must do tour if you love food and local neighborhoods. Our guide, Paul, was so knowledgeable and fun. We had 12 of us on our tour - we were the only Americans with 3 separate fun groups from Australia. We started at a coffee/pastry shop, off to beer meats/cheese, Milanese risotto, lasagne, a local wine shop and gelato. At each stop we received an explanation of the importance of why we were there and the history of what we were eating. This is a great way to visit a local neighborhood and try some of the local cuisine. Eat a really light breakfast, and this is plenty of food for your lunch for the day.
I was pleasantly surprise by this tour. My tour guide Debra was great, took us to several eateries. We'd big portion of prosciutto, parmesan cheese,and beer. Next we tasted, lasagna, two types of meatballs, one boiled in broth and the other fried in the clarified butter. Bread with green olives to follow. There was a good wine and on the end we had gelato. On the way to different tasting places Debra told us about the history of Milan, just enough to get you interested.
This is a must do! Great walking food tour with a little bit of history lesson.
We sampled a lot of great food and some beer and wine. We did a lot of walking and like how each place is spread out. We left very full!
Fantastic walking tour, full of information on architecture as well as the surrounding areas demographics. Enthusiastic guide and the food was awesome. Suggest doing this on your first day in Milan as it quickly shows you the characteristics of the various eateries, where to go and what to eat saving a newcomer to the city the delima of finding suitable authentic eateries at reasonable prices.
We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide..she was great! She was very knowledgeable about the area and we never felt rushed at any of the six places we visited. Would recommend it! The only problem was that we got lost finding the meeting place, but our guide called us and directed us accordingly went above and beyond. We visited places we probably wouldn't have visited and even was introduced to a new drink called Spritz!
