What people are saying about Milan

A father and 3 young daughters required a slightly more unorthodox approach to a day out in Milan. From ice skating in the park, beautiful villa gardens, best pizza and gelato in town and completed with a return to the hotel on one of the city’s iconic trams - a wonderful day all round. Big thanks to Marco for hosting us and sharing his knowledge of this wonderful city.

We did the tour of the opera. The guide was already waiting for us with a sign with our name on it. First, a tour was given outside with information that gave extra clarification for inside. She was very knowledgeable and explained everything clearly. Inside the tour was great too. Well worth it.

Very interesting tour. Took you around the museum and into La Scala itself. Very good for anyone with even a general interest in classical music and opera. The radio Mike from the guide was a a bit crackly. Most of the time you didn't need the earpiece though so not too.much of a problem.

The best guide ever ... unbeatable knowledge and local knowledge. Immediately again!!!

My guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. I highly recommend a private tour.
