    The guide was very good, but the tour is short and you only spend a few short minutes looking at the theater. No access to the backstage or floor of the theater, just a view from the box. The museum is 4-5 rooms. Go if you love the opera, but otherwise not worth it.

    A great introduction

    There is a lot to be said for a guide who is passionate and informative. Ours was both. We had a mostly enjoyable hour in La Scala, spoiled only by other members of our party, who thought it acceptable to elbow others out of the way in their endless quest for the perfect selfie...

    Excellent tour and guide

    Very interesting tour of the theatre but could you make the tour guides more visible? Luckily I saw a women with a ticket similar to mine but otherwise I wouldn’t have known who the guide was. Maybe if they wore a brightly coloured baseball cap or stood near a sign that said “GET YOUR GUIDE” it would help customers.
