Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful on our tour. Even though the weather was less than ideal, she made the best of a very "WET" situation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lucille and Lenny, thank you for your nice company ... patience for the rainy day and beautiful feed back!
Daniel OBrienUnited States
Valeria is a knowledgeable and very flexible guide. She was able to determine things to show me that I had not articulated, to make the experience more personalized. She also had keen insight into the real Milan that locals patronize and shared suggestions to allow me to mix with the locals rather than the tourists. I highly recommend her on your next visit to Milan!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Daniel for your beautiful feed back. I spent really nice time walking the city with you and Marcio.
Jordan SafirsteinUnited States
Very kind and nice and knowledgeable but for a family with young kids the tour was a little ... slow. Better suited to adults with interest In art. I throughly we would be walking more than talking but there was quite a bit of standing and listening.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jordan, thank you for your positive feedback and I'm sorry that you found the tour a little slow, I hadn't the perception that you wanted a faster walking rhythm, I usually have the opposite feed back as travelers often ask me to slow down or have a break ....

Valeria was a wonderful guide. Prior to my arrival she sent me information about arriving in Milan that was tremendously helpful. The tour itself was an excellent introduction to Milan; as an added benefit based on my interests Valeria provided suggestions of how to organize my remaining time in Milan, how to get around and accomplish other things I desired as well as providing suggestions. I would highly recommend Valeria.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jason, thank you so much for your beautiful beed back! I'm happy that you have enjoyed my suggestions and went on exploring the city.

Rin Rin WongSingapore
We had arrived at Milan earlier in the morning, absolutely jet-lagged. Thank God for Valeria! She was gentle and kind, and her expert guiding allowed us to see many sights in Milan. After that, we were in Italy for many days, but my son said the meal at the v. local restaurant that Valeria recommended was the best meal he had had in Italy. It is testament to the obsession that Valeria had in showing us what was truly Milanese. Thank u, Valeria!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rin Rin, that you so much for your kind words. It has been a pleasure talking with you and your family and I'm happy that your your son has enjoyed the restaurant I recommended! :-)
Andrew B.Princeton, NEW JERSEY, United States
Valeria is a meticulously detailed and delightfully proud chronicler of the wonders of her native Milano. She takes great pleasure in revealing aspects of the city that are usually hidden from a tourist's gaze. As such, she is particularly well suited to guiding those who like to stray from the beaten path. The tour focuses on Il Duomo and La Scala among the great monuments but then moves on to secret doorways and gardens and the often quirky facades of the homes of the rich but not so famous. Brava!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Andrew! Valeria
Sondra JackowitzUnited States
Val was extremely knowledgeable. Her tour gave us great insight into the sites we covered. We could not have done the tour of The Duomo without her help. The local restaurant she recommended was fantastic, as we were not in a tourist restaurant but with true locals. Hardily recommend her tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sondra!
Jeffrey WellerUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeffrey
John CainUnited States
She was really good!! She was super knowledgeable and told stories about Leonardo and Michelangelo that makes you want to read more about them. Especially Leonardo because he was a big influence in Milan. Also with an early starting time of 9a she had arranged for us to see the Duomo from the top on the outside to start with by taking an elevator, saving us a climb of over 200 steps. The view from there was incredible. She also highlighted a map and suggested a number of things for me to do later on.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi John, it has been a real pleasure for me taking care of you! Vale

Sherri Long55127, United States
We hired Valeria to take us on a walking tour of Milan, having never been there before. We only had a few days, so we wanted to get the most out of our time. Her English was very good, easy to understand. She was very informative about the history of the Duomo, the La Scala and other historical sites we walked thru. She gave us suggestions about which restaurants to try, and other parts of the city we should visit before we left, that we otherwise might not have visited. I would highly recommend her!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sherri! Valeria
