A Recent Review of this tour

Our Milan half-day sightseeing tour with Michaela was an extremely enjoyable experience. Everything was so smoothly organized, including the entrance to the Duomo. Our family, including two teen girls, really appreciated her knowledge of and passion for the history, architecture and art of Milan. Great tour. We learned a lot. We only had one full day in Milan. But because of her, I would love to return to Milan to spend more time exploring the city.
