While the Sforza castle had quite a few things to see-especially the museum, the guide was dull. Didn’t make things interesting. The other thing that was disappointing was that the Leonardo museum is closed on Wednesdays. Even then GetYourGuide allowed a reservation to be done. And Even though the alternative science museum visit was OK, it wasn’t what we paid for.

Laura was professional, knowledgeable, punctual and very friendly. She explained everything in details without being redundant, repetitive or boring but adding lots of interesting and fun facts. We really enjoyed our 3 hours tour and we surely reccomend it to everyone.
