We liked the info the tour guide provided. She was informative. The radios could have been a better quality as we couldn’t hear her with the static noises 75% of the time. With the city walk, the rain, and the number of tourists on the tour, it was difficult to stay near the guide to hear her and minimize the radio statics. Overall, we enjoyed the tour.

Marco Antonio was exceptionally organized and well-informed. He made a genuine effort to augment the visit to the daVinci masterpiece with supplemental details and photos on his tablet. There was considerable distance walked and a nice variety of important elements in central Milan.

Renata gave us a detailed, friendly and informative experience about The Sforza Castle and Italy - such a great tour.

Very insightful. Because of the guide I was able to appreciate the painting even more.

The tour was quite interesting. In particular, the guide was excellent
