    Jose was a great guide. He gave a unique perspective on looking at the Milan Cathedral which started with the original cathedral and how it is still part of the current cathedral. Also going all the way to the top of the roof and the careful thought out into preserving the new cathedral with the canal and water system. Outside was brought inside with the use of windows and light. Jose did an interesting narration of how all things tied together for a magnificent end result. I highly recommend requesting Jose for your guide on this thoughtful and interesting private tour.

    Definitely worth booking. When walking past I saw the crowded lines and in the sun thought I’d also be waiting but just for this price we went straight in and the tour guide was lovely. Explained the history very well and it was worth going all the way up and seeing the view. Great value for money

    Had a little trouble finding the guide at first as she was not where we were told to meet but once we found her all was good. Interesting tour, her English was good and easy to understand. Read the do’s and don’ts - women need to have knees and shoulders covered to enter the Duomo, and you don’t need ID as stated - I carried passports unnecessarily.
