What people are saying about Milan

Loved this tour. It was a great way to see parts of Milan that you otherwise may not know about. I did it on a Sunday morning and it was quite quiet for a busy city at this time so would recommend if you can. Our guide Paulina was absolutely fabulous. She knew so much about the history of Milan and also current developments. She was able to answer any questions and was very friendly.

Havde den fineste tur rundt i de mindre kendte dele af Milano med en dygtig og elskværdig guide, som med stor passion berettede om alt fra Leonardo Da Vincis ingeniør-kunst til m2-prisen på lejlighederne i “Vertical Forrest”. Charmerende, hyggelig og aldeles anbefalesværdig måde at tilbringe 3 1/2 time i Milano på ❤️
