Our pupils (15-17 years old) were difficult to lead. The Guide must be more practical and can't speak so much. Scetchs, theatre and touchable objects could attract their interest. 3 hours is too long

This is an exceptional private tour!! Our tour started even outside the Opera house and we learnt so many interesting information not only about the building but about real facts of the Opera's life throughout the years!! Definitively recommended!
Our guide, Simon, was informative, funny, and engaging. He really seemed to be enjoying his job and being our host. He gave a good restaurant tip and even called ahead to tell the owner we were coming. We loved the tour and recommend it highly.
Thanks to "Corona", Milan was not overcrowded. So the whole stay was very relaxed. The tour was informative and not boring at all.
