A good tour to locate yourself and see everything that one will be able to see in later days. It helps a lot because Milan is extensive. If you don't have several days it's a quick superficial way to get to know Milan

Although it was a winter trip, when the city practically stops, as it is a tourist city in the summer, it was an interesting tour. The tour reception staff and the boat captain were very kind and attentive.

It was really good !! pity that we are not on a guided tour, that is to say that we cannot visit the monuments at the same time. But for the price it's worth it.

It was not easy for us to find the departure point. Could have been written better.

Great tour of important areas of Milan. Comfortable ride.
