My wife and I had a good day with Valeria seeing more of the non-touristy side of Milan. Valeria certainly knows the city and the facts about a multitude of buildings and neighborhoods. We saw parts of Milan we would never have gotten to on our own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tom and Susan, thank you!

Valeria was an excellent guide. We greatly enjoyed her commentary and the hidden gem places she took us through. She was lively and obviously well informed which made the morning tour one of our highlights in Milan.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Willian, thank you for the excellent feed back and your pleasant company!
Valeria guided us (a 20-people group) for 2 days. We enjoyed her good spirit, her wonderful knowledge, and her excellent English! On behalf of all the group - Thank you Valeria , Vita
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Vita, I had great fun with your group and I'm happy that you have enjoyed our time together too. :-) Valeria

Great history of the city and at the end of the tour - wonderful ideas for restaurants and fabulous ideas for things to do on our own.

Janine T.United States
We so much enjoyed our time with Valeria. The tour was organized but flexible to our needs. She was very knowledgeable and communicated very well in our language (English). We have utilized the services of other guide groups (via a cruise itinerary) and found Valeria was a cut above. The one-on-one nature that Tours By Locals provides suited us well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Janine and Elizabeth, I really enjoyed out time together and had the feeling of being ... completely in sync. I do hope our paths will cross again in the future. Valeria

Great at showing both the main attractions as well as the more local flavors of the city, i.e.: the small shoe shops and quiet courtyards. Was really fun to do the metro and subway and visit the old as well as the brand new architecture. Very nice in helping me shop for specific items I needed. Took extra time to write down restaurant recommendations and mark on a map other sights I could visit on my own or next time I'm in Milan. Is very proud of Milan and was conveyed her love and passion for the city
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Cynthia, thank you for the great feedback. I have appreciated your curiosity, energy and it has been a real pressure sharing with you the "little secrets" of Milan.

Valeria was a great tour guide. We asked her to guide us through the various neighborhoods of Milan to help us find a place to live. It helped us that she was a native of Milan and knew the neighborhoods very well!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Irma for your excellent feed back! Valeria
Good English and exactly what we wanted to get around and a quick appreciation of Milan. Understood our requirements and organized a tour to suit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Annette!!
Valeria showed us a very interesting side to Milan. We only had 3 hours and saw the new part of the city sky scrappers, the older part with Canals and the oldest Church. She organised our group of 7 people ranging in ages from 14 to 80 years old on and off the metro and returning us in time to get to the airport. We would contact her again if we were ever in Milan again. A really worthwhile visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jane! Valeria

We had three tours with Valeria. We not only learned about the subject of our tours but additional places of interest that she suggested due to our interests such as the community of skyscrapers. She also taught us how to use the subway system with ease and made it possible for us to have lunch at a cafe popular with the working community.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mandy, spending time with you and Gwen has been a real special experience for me too.

We had a very memorable vacation in Milan thanks to Valeria's knowledge of the city's treasures. We especially enjoyed piazza Gae Aulenti, the Corso Como with the enchanting roof garden, and the Monumental Cemetery. She also discovered an exposition of camicia bianca of Gianfranco Ferre in Palazzo Reale, which was one of the most unexpected and amazing experiences that we ever had in our travel. Not to mention panzerotti Luini, which Valeria correctly qualified as food of gods. Thank you Valeria!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is great when travelers trust me and let me show what I consider fabulous and unexpected. You did and I'm happy you have enjoyed it!
