I cannot stress enough how wonderful and flawless this tour was. Well managed by a very knowledgeable, professional, and lively tour guide. ‘Charlie’ was exceptionally dynamic, yet, controlled the pace (while walking and while speaking) to accommodate the needs of every member of the group. I was 2 minutes late, running to meet my group, and received a phone call and voicemail from the office just a minute before the specific meeting time. The places/spots visited, geographic area covered, historic facts, entertaining side stories or commentary, all in the backdrop of the Bellísima Milan, will be surely remembered. We were given adequate breaks and snack/lunch time. Athough I was worried about a ‘6 hour’ walking tour, Charlie made it easy.
The tour of La Scala and the guide were excellent. The guide for the Cathedral tour was bubbly and communicated well but seemed to be far more interested in promoting Milan over other wonderful places in Europe rather than telling us about the Cathedral - how it was built, styles of building within the Cathedral, exterior features etc. we received some interesting facts and stories but they were all a bit disconnected. Tour was ok but could easily have been do much better. We also had to wait around for group members to turn up and then they ended up not joining us because the women didn’t have cover for their shoulders and legs. This requirement should be pointed out in the information for the tour.
We had an amazing tour today with Ludovic (hi-lites: Last Supper, Duomo). He was engaging, funny and had non-stop knowledge. It was a full day tour that flew by; well paced, with breaks for coffee and lunch. The audio headsets worked well so you could meander around a bit if desired. His English was excellent, and he’s fluent in French and Italian. He’s clearly knows his material well. He was easily able to answer questions from the group. Everyone had a great time. R&C
Our tour guide was very informative and entertaining. He provided a lot of context to what we were seeing making the tour remarkable and worth the time and money. Definitely a great way to get a view of the city and learn about its history.
We had THE BEST tour guide ever! Chiara “Kee are a”. She kept us laughing and organized and gave a beautiful tour. Highly recommend this tour and ask for Chiara!!
