Barbara Quarello was a pure joy: informative, outgoing, and a constant source of information and insight. We customized our tour in advance by email, and felt she did everything she could to optimize our time in Milan and to get us to everything we most wanted to see. Then she added to each location with warmth, history, and context. We have no reservations in recommending her.
We had a wonderful tour with Barbara. The depth of her historical knowledge is amazing. You will never get such information from a travel book. She guided us through a compact itinerary without long lines and the overall congestion of mass tourists. We could even make a stop at one her favorite places for gelato, a real treat. We will certainly book another tour with Barbara when we come back.
Our tour of the Duomo was superb! So many interesting facts and historical comments were interspersed throughout our tour. Barbara had arranged for us to skip the line to get in and to get into the elevator to go up to the roofs. It was a very busy Easter weekend and she knew the right times to meet to avoid the crowds. Our group was composed of young people and adults with differents interests (and attention spans!) but she tailored the timing and presentations to fit us all. We had a fantastic time!!

Barbara is a delightful guide to spend a few hours with.. giving just enough 'history' and information about the main sights of Milan. We especially enjoyed the roof of the Duomo. Excellent tour... excellent guide.

She was very thorough and knowledgable, we had a good time on our tour of Central Milan with Barbara.
We had a very thorough and informative tour by Barbara Q. Arriving in Milan for only 2 nights we wanted to do a "snapshot" tour. Came across this tour "Milan at a glance". It was great !!! Barbara was a delightful tour guide with a professional attitude. I would highly recommend this tour and especially Barbara! She made our memories of Milan so special.

Barbara was a wonderful tour guide. She met us right on time to take us on a tour she customized just for our group of 4. We were in Milan for an afternoon and she showed us the highlights including the Last Supper. Her English was very clear and easy to understand. She was extremely knowledgeable and had an iPad with images to help her explain some with more detail. She was friendly and engaging and didn't even complain when it rained on us for most of our tour. I would highly recommend her.

Barbara was a wonderful guide and host to the city of Milan. She obviously loves her city and she knows it's history so well that she can bring the old stones back to life. A few hours with Barbara was the perfect introduction to Milan.

Best dressed guide ever! Beautifully represented Milan with her very fashionable attire - I was worried about doing a 5 hour tour with her as she had scrappy patent leather shoes with low heels but she navigated the cobblestones,slippery marble on the roof of the Duomo,and all other surfaces with ease and energy. She also was great at talking with the guards and ticket handlers to get us in and out of the lines swiftly. Was very flexible in tailoring the itinerary to what I wanted to do. Highly recommend

Had a fantastic private walking tour with Barbara to visit the Duomo, Galleria Vittorio Emanuel and the Castle. Barbara was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the buildings and the materials used in their construction. She pointed out many details that we would likely have missed had we visited on our own, and was very responsive to our many questions. We had a great time with her and she may our one day in Milan very special. Grazie mille Barbara!
