What people are saying about Last Supper
Nicely organized and enjoyable tour. The details provided during the visit to the Last Supper made the experience more meaningful. Only critique is that based on the amount of money I paid, rooftop access at the Duomo should have been included. It’s actually much more cost effective (like only an extra $3) to buy the rooftop access with the chuch access than to buy them separately.
It was a good tour but it was disappointing that we would not see the interior of La Scala until we were heading into La Scala due to a performance of Romeo and Juliet. You should have mentioned this upfront not during the middle of the tour. We were leaving Milan on Monday and could not use the ticket for the next day. You should provide a refund for this portion of the tour.
We had a great Tourguide, who told us a lot of stories in between. She was passionate about the things we visited and knew a lot of history. The tour was very well structured and the 3 hour walk sounds more than in reality. Worth the booking.
Very nice guide, really instructive. To see the Cene, just a dream! However, we should have visited the cathedral and the basement, so the tour was only 2 hours instead of 3. This is te reason of my rate...
Great small group tour! Our guide Corrado made was knowledgable and friendly. We were glad that we had chosen a tour as we learnt so much that wouldn’t had we been alone.
