tour guide was excellent , inside the Duomo was amazing ,well worth a visit
The tour was great and the guide also, however when I booked the tour I requested the tour with the elevator. When I got there the guide told me that it was only the inside tour - no elevator needed. I was able to purchase a ticket from him and do the other part of the tour which was fantastic - on the rooftop of the Duomo - I'm so glad I was lucky enough to get this. I was also lucky that the tour was on Sunday - I got to hear the organ which sounded wonderful all during the tour if you don't like music playing which can make it a bit hard to hear the guide, don't go on a Sunday. Our guide was good about making himself heard and picking quieter places to explain things. Walking the rooftop isn't for the faint at heart and does include up and down steps but well worth it. Not only is the view terrific, but seeing the statues and flying buttresses up close and walking through them is great. A word of caution - don't take a backpack if at all possible for the rooftop tour - the guards make you empty it for security. Even a handbag gets a thorough look through. The security isn't quite a tough for the inside tour. Unfortunately with the state of the world this is something we need to get used to, but everyone was very polite and helpful. This is something not to be missed.
This group tour was informative and our guide was very knowledgeable.

A must see in Milan for the historic value and understanding of the Catholic religion and the architecture used to build the magnificent edifice.
Lovely experience. The duomo is such a magnificent sight inside and out. Our tour guide Fabio was great. He had a lively personality and took just enough time to explain everything. Absolutely a must!
The guide was fabulous, she really new her subject well. The meeting place could be much better. We had great trouble finding it due to the crowds and congestion around the square. We followed up with the Rooftop walk. Both combined was absolutely awesome.
Excellent Trip! couldn't have been better. tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the Doumo, was able to answer all our questions and took time to explain everything. She also told us about a few nice places to eat which was very helpful. First time we have used Viator, but will be using them when we go to Naples in a few month time.
Our tour guide Katia Borgia was very informative with her knowledge in History, we found her to be very pleasant and accommodating. Could not have had a better tour guide.
We took both the Duomo tour and then the rooftop that evening. Both were spectacular and our guide Laura was the perfect one to take care of the afternoon. Although the cathedral itself is beautiful, watching the sun set from the rooftop is a sight that is one of the highlights of our entire trip to Italy. I'm not sure if you can plan to be in just the right place at the right time but it's worth a try.
Andrea is an excellent and professional guide. Her knowledge of the tour was very well shared.
Excellent tour, but people should be aware that the rooftop portion of the tour requires that you are able to do steps lots of them. The elevator only goes so far and the rest is up to your knees and feet. We loved it.
Really enjoyed the tour of the inside of the Duomo with our guide Donatello. She was very informative and had many interesting facts and stories which she related very well to the group. When we discovered that the tour did not include the rooftop, she immediately figured out a way that we could add this to our current tour so that we could also enjoy the amazing views of the spires and all of Milan. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Milan.
Wonderful, what a beautiful historic building. Definitely a highlight of our trip. The guide was enthusiastic and very helpful. Unfortunately we didnt book ahead to see The Last Supper, so we missed it!
It was a very interesting tour, much thanks to the guide who was excellent.
Great tour! Allison was highly knowledgeable about the Duomo and Milan. My only suggestion would be for the guides to get a bigger sign with your company name on it and to state in your package that they're waiting for you outside main Entrance 2 on the right, which is for Individuals AND Groups, versus main Entrance 1 on the left, which is for Individuals only.
Tour was excellent. Guide was very knowledgeable and provided excellent insights you would not get on your own.
We visited the Duomo, escorted by an English speaking guide. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable. We went to the church part of it and did not climb the stairs to go to the top.
The guided tour was worth it as we were able to understand the stories built within the stained glass windows and the Fresco.
Great Tour and guide. Forgot his name but his mom is French and father is British, great sense of humour and very knowledgable.
