I prefer a one to one guide. It is very personal and this tour was very enjoyable.
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 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.
very informative. our guide took us to places we would have never been able to find.
This was a great tour! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, especially regarding Milan's history, having studied at the art academy herself. It was a comfortably paced tour since it was only three of us in addition to the guide. We spent some time in the Duomo, which you need to pay to take pictures but it's worth it, and walked through the shopping center, through the art district which is rich in history. We asked for a restaurant recommendation which she was hesitant to give at first until we said we wanted something non-touristy and what her favorite place to eat was. I highly recommend this tour especially if you are only in Milan for a short time as we were. You see a lot in a short amount of time but never feel rushed and actually wonder where the time went!
Guide was so good that my wife recommends her to our friends. Extremely friendly, knowledgeabe, sensitive to my wife's back problems,and flexiblle. Adjusted the tour to our specific requests, since we had already seen a number of places that are on the standard route. Excellent! Brava!
Wonderful Tour... Our guide was interesting and informative. Really enjoyed the city

Fabulous tour! Despite Viator not forwarding our booking to the tour company, they managed to find us a guide with 30 minutes notice. Our guide was great! Sweet, easy going and very experienced - not a question went unanswered. We created our own tour in consultation with our guide and it was a fabulous day. Definitely worth it! Five stars plus.
Outstanding tour guide-we were exposed to several places that I am sure the other tours did not cover.

Paola was an excellent guide. She managed to get 2 tickets to the see the Last Supper at literally the last minute. We were able to watch a few minutes of the rehearsal of the Barber of Seville La Scala. She make the tour come alive.

This was the BEST! Our tour guide was an Art History major and we learned a lot of interesting facts about Milan. She was very informative and gave recommendations of some things to do. She even recommended the best restaurant--Nabucco. I felt that we got more than our money's worth with this tour.
Wonderful tour guide! She was a wealth of information about the history of Milan and the buildings. There is so much you would never know about this wonderful city if you didn't have a guide.
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.

It was just okay. Our guide was excellent but it was more of a history lesson vs. sightseeing.
The guide was great; she was very knowledgeable about the city and had a passion for her topic. However, the main reason for going on the tour was to see La Scala. We saw it; the guide pointed out the building. The tour started at 5pm, by which time La Scala was already closed. Had we known that, I would never have taken this tour.
This was a very disappointing tour. It started at 5pm but all the sites to visit were closed by 6:30. We felt sorry for the guide because he didn't know how to fill the 3 hours. We stretched it out for two and a half hours and then decided to finish the tour. We do not think that this tour was worth the amount charged.
