Laura was ver knowledgeable about Milan’s history, salient events and people. She made her stories easy to understand. She was very willing to answer queries. I enjoyed our walking tour very much though the three hour tour was taxing to seniors like me. Be prepared to walk in your most comfortable shoes. Thanks Laura!

Really great, customizable and informative tour, worth the price. Our guide Laura contacted us in advance via Whatsapp to agree whether we also wanted to visit the cathedral, the Scala and the castle from the inside. (Entrances are not included in the price and have to be paid separately.) We chose Cathedral and Scala. Laura was a very nice and competent guide who explained everything we wanted to know in detail. Highly recommended!

Laura was a knowledgeable guide who silently responded to our requests. She was very nice and not a senior teacher, which made the exchange easier and a pleasure. It should be mentioned that getyourguide organized our very short-term booking (5 p.m. for 10 a.m. the following day) without a hitch. Even the for and ideal German-speaking guide was organized - chapeau!
