The building itself was really wonderful, but the meeting place was not friendly at all. I arrived earlier than the scheduled time, so I managed to get there, but since it was my first time there, I wish they had made it easier to understand how to get in.

Our tour guide Davide was fantastic. Such a great mix of history, humor, and rapport along with amazing food. A great way to tour the city of Milan.

No better way to see the city, very helpful and knowledgeable guide. Riding ebikes makes it a breeze.

This is THE best way to explore Milan! It is so easy and convenient.

We had a great time and the guide was very knowledgeable!
