My husband and I had SUCH a fun night with Daniele and Antonio for our private walking food tour. We got a lot of great info from both of them and it also felt like we were just hanging out and enjoying the company. The stops are all really thoughtful and there are quite a few different bites to taste so I felt it was really generous. The bites are not entirely Milan-specific except for a couple but by the end we felt we learned a lot about Milan and its food. Our stomachs were satisfied after a great evening.

Getting to know Sara and spending the afternoon with her is a delight. She shares her passion and good addresses with you. Smiling, not stingy with anecdotes about her hectic life in this world of fashion and art, she will make you have a great time. Remember to take good shoes and something to note all the good plans.

This tour is really fun. Sylvia our guide was so nice, and the food was amazing. We were only 4 people so it was like a private tour. I recommend this!

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and it’s history. The places we stopped were charming and the food was excellent. I would recommend

Daniel was hospitable and shared with us the history of Milan as well as rhe origins of the food that we tasted.
