We had spontaneously switched from an hour to a two-hour tour. This was absolutely no problem and we were able to organize the 2nd lesson as we wanted. Our rickshaw driver Zura was a humorous and funny driver who maneuvered us safely through everywhere with a lot of vigor and joy. Now and then he sang happily to himself. We would book the same tour with Zura right away. A wonderful experience. Andrea & Roger

Our tour started on time and our guide explained the most important sights. It was also no problem to just stop and capture an impression. Riding a rickshaw enables you to get close to things and move forward quickly, especially when there is a lot going on. We would definitely recommend it as a start if you don't know Milan yet.

Thanks to "Corona", Milan was not overcrowded. So the whole stay was very relaxed. The tour was informative and not boring at all.

Super trip through the city! The guide was great and was telling us very much about the city by the trip.

Excellent guide. Excellent tour Our guide was excellent and very helpful
