Our guide Laura Serena R was the best! Our train was late but we went to the meeting point hoping to catch our guide. She had been trying to call me but my phone was off. When I realized that I called and she returned and began our tour. She was genuinely happy we arrived and proceeded to give us the complete 3 hour tour although we were 1 hour late. She was very knowledgeable, easy to understand very personable and a real pro! I would have totally understood if she had left or shortened the tour due to our late arrival but luckily for us she did not. I would highly recommend Laura Serena R to anyone visiting Milan.

If you want to learn the highlights of the cathedral, the gallery, and the opera house in half a day this is the tour for you. It helps to focus your attention because there’s so much to see and learn about. Fast lane access to the cathedral, the terrace, and the museum really helps to make the experience very enjoyable, even in Milanese summer.

Punctual, informative, interesting

Our guide Claudia was very nice and spoke charming German. The previously ordered tickets for the Duomo still had to be bought, which took a little time. Incidentally, the tour with Claudia was very interesting and informative! It was a shame that we found out at short notice that the Scala was closed. But that wasn't Claudia's fault!
