For my sister and myself this was an ideal way to explore the city at the beginning of our trip, get a feel for it and decide which sights we wanted to explore further. We had a very knowledgeable guide, who was also very passionate about the city. The route itself was clearly planned to be bikefriendly even in the not very bikefriendly Milan

We had the best day and tour of the beautiful city of Milan with Simon as our guide. His insight and knowledge of the city was incredibly valuable as we toured the Duomo, Last Supper and the Sforza Castle. It was one of the highlights of our Italy trip, and a memory we will never forget. Thank you Simon for sharing your expertise with us!

We enjoyed relaxed and thoughtful walk through the top architectural locations streaching accross centuries. Throughout the tour Alisa showed us unique spots and shared some local stories. Great start for a weekend in Milan!

The tour was very well organized and extremely informative. I would say without guidance you have seen something, with guidance you know something about it and remember it. It was also a lot of fun.

Great guide, very helpful and thorough. Good experience overall.
