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.

Simone was an extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide. The tour of Milan was very interesting and he took us to places that we would never have discovered on our own, who knew their was a family of pink flamingos living in the centre of Milan. It’s inspired us to return to Milan at a later date and see more of this beautiful City!

Everything was perfect, excellent cooks very available and caring. Visit of the market with explanations very well done and dishes cooked together excellent. Well done continue.

Really learned a lot about cooking Italian food. Our hosts were wonderful and high spirited. We had a great day in a safe environment for learning.

Personable and very knowledgeable. Allowed us to customize our tour. It was great!
