Was a great experience the guide knew a lot about this beautiful city and quizzed us and answered any questions that we asked. It was really enjoyable and I recommend it to anyone that wants to do it especially with him. I’m not sure how to spell his name but it starts with D and he’s got dread locks

Our guide provided us with a great three hour overview of the Milano city Center that could not be duplicated by can or walking. It would have been nice if they had provided a bottle of water which we have received on our other Segway tours in other cities.
