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!
