Our tour with Laura was very enjoyable. She is very knowledgable and passionate about the artwork. We had taken similar tours in Florence at Uffizi Gallery and in Rome. Being with a guide is so much more enjoyable than the headphone tours or just wandering aimlessly. They know how to pick a good cross section of artwork and bring the paintings to life in their time periods by pointing out details that the regular person may overlook. It was a relaxed, very informative tour.

Our tour started on time and our guide explained the most important sights. It was also no problem to just stop and capture an impression. Riding a rickshaw enables you to get close to things and move forward quickly, especially when there is a lot going on. We would definitely recommend it as a start if you don't know Milan yet.
Nice start to see Milan, with explanations in a large number of languages! Drivers are gifted and master their vehicle perfectly, weaving their way through traffic jams which saves hours of travel. A nice visit!
