What people are saying about Milan

This tour is absolutely worth it! Stefano was the best guide. He is so knowledgeable about the local history and can tell you everything you need to know to have an awesome experience and learn about the history of the area. We got to get onto the boat without a long wait in line. He knew the best restaurants and places to shop. He took us to the local places of interest. Also, he was really funny! Our bus driver was amazing and gave us each a bottle of water, which was needed on the hot day! 10/10 definitely worth it!

We had a great time on the boat. The journey first went out of town and then back past the pier towards town again. In total, you can look at the surroundings from the water for about an hour. An Aperol Spritz and snacks (chips, nuts) were included. Entertaining, recommendable pleasure :-).

Simona was the best tour guide. She is very knowledgeable and helpful. The bus driver was also super nice. The sites were spectacular. Highly recommend this tour.
