Our guide was very knowledge and very personable. We learned some very interesting facts about the Duomo and the area around that we toured. Our guide showed us a shop that specialized in Focaccia so we stopped and had a quick snack. The access to 'the Last Supper is done in very small groups so it feels very special to be allowed to view and again our guide was informative and genial
This is a very good tour, and the guide is exceptional,
Three hours of pure delight with our engaging tour guide, Donatella. Our informative afternoon consisted of a tour through the beautiful cathedral of the Virgin Mary, the old castle, the canal district and a viewing of the Last Supper. It was an educational and fun way to see this beautiful city.
A must-do to appreciate Milan. I wished we were able to do this on our first day in the city. Unfortunately, we could not get a booking. Our guide Corrado gave us comprehensive information not only of the various sights but also a glimpse of every day Milanese life. I particularly enjoyed his insights of The Last Supper.

It's da Vinci! Do I need something else to add?
Wow, excellent experience
Great guide - my local friend was impressed after I relayed all the history explained by the guide. We had no problems at all viewing the Last supper- it was a smooth process.
Our guide Ludovic Charles was extremely knowledgeable, attentive and the whole tour was as good as expected, with the bonus of a very good guide.

We did this tour on 5th October 2016 and it was something on our bucket list. We are a family of 2 adults and our 11 year old son, who has a love of Italian history and culture and is well travelled. He attends a Christian College and has also grown up with this picture above his Nonna and Nonno's dining room table. To be able to see it for real was an opportunity of a lifetime.
The tour guide was Maria and she was excellent. The tour company was City Wonders who we were delighted to have as we have done many tours with them and they are above excellent and their guides are very well versed as well as being fun and interactive, which our son loves. The tour goes for just over 3 hours. It is a walking tour, but it is not a strenuous long walk, and you are busy listening anyway, so it doesn't feel like a long way.
We met our tour at Piazza del Duoma the Duoma under the arches of the large Mondadori Book Store and the tour went for 3 hours. We went inside the Duomo and were given its history and brief tour but long enough and then walked to the Galleria VittorioEmanuele large glass covered shopping mall which is stunning. We then walked past the La Scala Theatre and saw Leonardo da Vinci's statue/monument and then entered the Brera District for a lovely coffee and cake for morning tea purchased at own expense at Princi's.
We then went to Sforza Castle for a tour and after here we went to view the Last Supper. As you enter, you have to wait in a side room and as one group of tours leaves, the climate controlled door opens and you are allowed in, the door then closes and you are given 25 minutes in the room dimly lit but light enough to see whilst maintaining constant temperature and lighting to care for this incredible historical artwork. This time is plenty long enough and you can see the fresco in detail quite close up so after many photo opportunities with no flash obviously the other door opens and you exit.
We had to come back through another entrance though as we wanted to visit the souvenir shop which isn't part of the tour, so the guide took us aside and went back through with us which was great. We always like a momento of our visit so make sure we ask now otherwise you miss out. This was so high on our list of must do's that we simply had to have something to remember our visit by.
The tour ends here and your guide gives you directions how to return to central Milan. We spent the day shopping and eating gelato as you do when in Italy.
This was a really wonderful tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly and she was tireless in taking us all over and providing both historical and current perspectives. She pointed out all sorts of details that I would have missed on my own. She had a good sense of humor and was very Italian- she knew the area as a native! She was great at pointing out details outside and in the spaces we entered, and had lots of tidbits to offer. She knew a lot about the Last Supper and what we should look for/at. Totally recommend this - a fantastic way to enter into the world of Milano!
