Tour: #292862, The Monumental Cemetery of Milan: an open air museum, Milan, Lombardia, Italy    view tour
Date: Nov 3/19

The Monumental Cementery tour was given a 3 * because it was mostly geared to local personalities with not a wide international flair. tour guide was puntual to the visit in spite of the cold rain.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Estimado Antonio, Thank you for taking your time to write to me. Your comment is very critical and frankly unexpected. During the private tour I talked about Caravaggio, Giuseppe Verdi, Alessandro Manzoni, Davide Campari, Hermann Einstein, Arturo Toscanini, the Bocconi family, Versace, Pavarotti, Vladimir Horowitz, etc... and I honestly would not consider them without international flair! I feel quite sorry if I didn't live up to your expectations. It was nice to meet you both. Best regards, Barbara

Barbara was our tour guide a second day in Milan where she showed us the art/history side of Milan. Leonardo da Vinci's vineyard was a delight to see -- such history! The Last Supper was superb and our viewing went off without a hitch. She was excellent at navigating the crowds to ensure we saw everything from the rail and was an excellent picture taker! Barbara finished off our tour with a suggestion for lunch and even called to make reservations. Thank you, Barbara, for a wonderful time in Milan!

Barbara was a great guide. She knows Milan like the back of her hand. We walked to all the "must sees", even in the rain! Her tour of the Duomo was spot on, making sure we saw all the sights on the roof and inside. There was't a question she couldn't answer! And, as we are very inquisitive, she was very patient with all of our many questions. I would not hesitate to use Barbara again -- especially for another Hidden Places of Milan tour she mentioned.

Barbara was great! We had a lovely day with her! She was very flexible and was happy to customize our tour to accommodate everyone's interests. Right down to how and where to find the best gelato. She took us to very nice and tasty authentic, historical restaurant for lunch as well as showed us some out of the way hidden gems of Milan. I would definitely pick Barbara again for any tours I would do in Milan.

Great tour. We had asked Barbara to show us places that are "must sees" that don't appear in guide books and she did a great job! We still enjoy pictures of the turtle! Pace of the tour was perfect and her knowledge is outstanding--art, history, architecture and culture.

a very informative tour of Milan although a very unpleasant underground train ride for some of us when experiencing pick pocketing by local gypsies on the train. although we were provided with earphones i recommend 2 earphones ( stereo) instead of one , there was a lot of interference from traffic and other tourists nearby. was not aware the duomo area has so much to see and has such a wealth of history around it, roof visit a definite experience one must do.

An amazing tour of hidden Milan. We requested the real Milan, and Barbara certainly delivered as much as possible in one day ! Courtyards, gardens, gelato, university graduation celebrations, churches, fashion, coffee, history, funny stories, art, food, and the friendly turtle. An observation of a remarkable city from within, rather than the monocular tourist view. Fabulous day!

Barbara was fantastic! We had a six and a half hour private tour and I was hoping our personalities would mesh because that's a long time otherwise! Despite cloudy skies and some rain, our tour was Barbara was just perfect. She managed to get us to the Duomo roofs and gave us a bit of a foodie tour and managed to score tickets to see Da Vinci's Last Supper. It was a perfect day! All boxes ticked! When we get back to Milan, Barbara will be our guide again!

The explanation of the Last supper was great. However, we had wanted to see other Lenardo Di Vinci inventions. This is not what the tour turned out to be. It was hard to hear all of the explanations because she did not use a headset like on our other tour. Was surprised that the fee to the places we visited was not included with the fee of the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking your time to write to me. It was your decision not to visit the Leonardo da Vinci's works of art in the Ambrosiana and in the Falcon Tower I had scheduled and the cost of them was specified in "what's extra". The use of the radio system isn't advised for just 7 people because the places to visit are quiet. I believe the extraordinary heat of that day (93° F) and the fact that just half of your family was used to walking, affected your decision. It was nice meeting you and your family.

The tour of Il Duomo was great. We could hear what she was saying because she used a headset and we all had earphones. However, she did not keep the devices the whole time. In addition, I was surprised that the fee for the devices was not included. She picked a very nice place for lunch. However, after lunch, the tour didn't feel like it had a flow to it. She definitely knew her dates and names. But there was no story just facts.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking your time to write to me.The radio system is compulsory only to enter the Duomo for more than 4 people. After lunch 5 components of your family out of 7 decided to continue the walking tour because of the jet lag. The cost of the system was specified in "what's extra".I believe the extraordinary heat of the day, 95° F, the fact that just half of your heterogeneous family was used to walking affected the harmony of the tour. I feel quite sorry if I didn’t live up to your expectations.

Our tour of Milan with Barbara was wonderful. She also coordinated a driver for us as we were staying on Lake Como. Her tour accommodated everyone in our group (5 adults, 2 kids) and I would highly recommend her.
