I booked a tour in Milan with Michaela for my family. I have to say that it was the best part of my trip to Italy. Michaela was so full of information as she walked us around the city. The 6 hour tour went by very quickly. We even had time to stop and eat. She acted more like a long time friend than a stranger which made all of us feel so comfortable being with her. She knew so much about the history of Milan!!! I would highly recommend her as a tour guide. Thank you Michaela, what a great experience!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Julie, Thanks a million for this fantastic review! It was really amazing to meet you and share with you my favourite spots in the city and of course stories and legends connected to the territory. We really had a lot of fun together! I hope I will see you again in the future, be well and take care. Michaela

Excellent English speaking guide. She gave us a complete 6 hour tour of the Duomo, including the roof. The Gallaria and obtained tickets for us to see the Last Supper. She moved at a good pace, but if you want a lunch break advise her when booking. We didn't take a lunch break, but probably should have, that wasn't her fault. Just something to keep in mind when booking I wouldn't recommend this tour with small children, it's to long. Really enjoyed her knowledge of what she was showing us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Morgan, I am very sorry I didn't understand you would have liked to stop for lunch. I thought you needed something quick to grab as you did. I usually stop if required. You're right it is a moderate level tour and it is not suitable for small children. I would like to thank you for the five stars rating. It was a pleasure guiding you. Michaela

We had a fabulous tour with Michaela. She was so efficient, interesting and informative with our Milan city walk. We enjoyed being with her. She was extremely helpful with arranging our tickets for the 12 Apostles fresco which are so hard to get. We were able to see all of the high points of the city and still have time for lunch. She also was so helpful with getting us on the right train to the Milan airport. We had a wonderful and very memorable day with Michaela and we would highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sheri, I spent a wonderful day with you. We shared a lot of information. Hope you had a good journey back home. Thank you

Fabulous tour and guide. Excellent knowledge of history of Milan and very good English. Adjusted the tour a bit and let us take all the pictures we wanted while she talked to us. Loved everything about the tour. Showed us things that we definitely would have missed without her expertise. Amazing day. ( great birthday present to myself !!).

MIchaela went above and beyond! She met us at our flat EXACTLY at the stated time. Extremely courteous and knowledgable, Michaela was also very patient with us as our daughter had just recently acquired a foot ailment causing her to walk very slowly. She also provided us with many worthwhile suggestions for how to spend our time after the tour ended, including providing us with a map of the city and giving us very detailed instructions on how to navigate the city. Thank you for a memory of a lifetime!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, it was an absolute pleasure meeting you and spending some time with you in Milan. I hope you will enjoy your trip over to Switzerland too :). Thnks Michaela

A good average tour of the MIlan highlights. About the right amount of time and hit the main sights. Guide's english was OK but not great. Would like to have heard more about history as the background was limited. We have had better and worse guides in Europe over the years.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I apologize that we did not cover everything you had hoped to cover, I was under the impression that you were content with the tour as we had a wonderful day together and we left on a good note. Maybe I could have communicated better and in the future I will ensure to be more clear with my guests so they leave the tour as happy as possible.

I have been researching a World War II novel based in Milan over the past ten years. This was my final trip to make sure I'd gotten the details correct. Michaela did an excellent job getting me where I needed to be and explaining what I was seeing as well as the history involved. She also interpreted for me when I was interviewing an 86-year-old who'd fought the Nazis at age 15. An excellent job.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was so interesting working with you! I learnt so many things about World War II in Milan. Listening to the 86-year-old man recalled me my granpa. Thank you!

Michaela and I had a wonderful day in Milan. With just the two of us, we were able to go at our own pace. When I asked that we have lunch at a typical Milanese restaurant, her choice couldn't have been better - had my risotto with porcini. Michaela is VERY knowledgeable of the art and architecture of Milan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Laurie. I enjoyed spending the whole day with you.
