What people are saying about Royal Palace of Milan
Historic Milan came alive to us as our well prepared and entertaining guide Fiamma shared her love of her home city. We engage many walking tours when we travel, and always start a visit to a new city with a walking tour. One sure test of quality, well met in this case -- if the guide assures the participants look at the object which is being described while the guide talks about that subject. Fiamma was very skilled, assuring we got the most out of every minute we were together. She was knowledgeable, energetic, organized, humorous, encouraged questions and knew the answers, talked about the past present and future (when applicable) -- in short, taking this tour was like catching up on "all the news" with an old friend. We cannot wait to return to Milan so that we can go explore more of the city, now that a solid foundation has been established via this wonderful excursion.
Cristina was simply outstanding as our guide. She had a wonderful balance to communicate her passion and knowledge about Milan and its extraordinary historical background. The flexibility of the tour was amazing as she took our requests in a stride and made all of us feel welcome in her home town. Thank you for this amazing experience - certainly memorable. It was the best choice we could make at the beginning of our stay in Milan. This tour gives an extraordinary overview.
Our pupils (15-17 years old) were difficult to lead. The Guide must be more practical and can't speak so much. Scetchs, theatre and touchable objects could attract their interest. 3 hours is too long
