A Recent Review of this tour

Milan in a Nutshell is a great tour, worth your time and your money. You get a full picture of this interesting city. Inge knows dates and history and architecture, and she also knows about the people and background stories, so the story comes alive. I took this tour after an international flight and the timing was perfect - walking, talking, laughing, and seeing a variety of sights was fun and energizing. I would book another tour with Inge in a flat minute.
