  • "We had a fantastic time on our tour. Beatrice is a brilliant tour guide who went above and beyond. She's extremely knowledgeable and we learnt so much about the beautiful history of Milan during the day. We were lucky enough to be in city during Pope Francis' visit which caused a few logistical challenges however, Beatrice was able to keep the group together and we even had a chance to see him go past during the street parade. A highly recommended tour for visitors to Milan."

For a 6 hour tour, I thought that it would be difficult but the pace was perfect and because it was so interesting, I hardly felt that we had been walking for that long. I was especially glad to skip the long lines for the Last Supper and the Duomo. What made the tour even better was that Charles thoroughly explained the significance and history of each site.
