Can recommend this tour and guide to everyone. Her knowledge and passion on the culture of Milan was outstanding.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My pleasure! I hope you enjoyed the rooftops. If you come back to Milan, I'like to spend some more time with you.
Fabiana RamirezUnited States
Michaela was eager to provide a chronological history of Milan but was not able to engage our younger tour members, ages 9-17. She recited many uninteresting facts and was not able to tie it into a comprehensive tour. Michaela's tour would be best suited for adults and those interested in a historical timeline.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Fabiana, Sorry to hear that. My tour are historical and cultural tour. I usually add (and I added that day) legends and personal anedocts to better understand the city and its spirit. You and your group might find them boring but they are not uninteresting as they are related to the city. If only I knew that I would have satisfied your needs better. Michaela
Terry L.Long Beach, CA, United States
Michaela gave us a great walking tour. She navigated the tickets for the Duomo for us to include the lift to the top which we would not have known how to do. She was very knowledgeable on the City and the sites we were shown. The history of the Galleria was fascinating. She is highly recommended for this tour. She has a great historical knowledge of Italian history which she shared with us.

Timothy CahillUnited States
Michaela was an enthusiastic and highly knowledgeable guide, exceeding our expectations when we booked this tour. She designed a tour specific to our interests, and also included a beautiful church which we had not known about. She even secured tickets for The Last Supper, when it was sold out online. Finally, she suggested a local restaurant in a non-touristy neighborhood for our superb "last supper" in Italy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tim, Thanks for your words and the 5 stars. It was great fun to be with you . I am delighted that you enjoyed Milan and my tour so much.

Will StarrUnited States
Our guide was very pleasant and well versed in Milanese history. Her presentation was perhaps a bit too dry--with what began to feel like too many names and dates. The hot weather probably made us less receptive than we might normally be. Some of us found her English pronunciation a little difficult to understand in often noisy settings. In general we might have liked more attention given to city sights so that we could better understand the current life of Milano.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Will, My tour is a cultural, historical tour.Milan is a very old city. We visited sites that date back to the Roman period. I had to give you dates and names to understand what we saw. I'am sorry you didn't understand my pronunciation because of the noisy settings. I would have repeated everything if only I had known it. It was a pleasure guiding you.

Nell WhippleUnited States
Loved our tour, our guide Michaela was wonderful, knowledgeable, prompt, courtesy,and managed to keep me awake when I was so tired I thought I would fall asleep standing up. I hope to visit Italy again and would definitely recommend "Tours by Locals", and I don't think you could find a better guide than Michaela Nell Milan Tour on 4/26/15
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nell, It was a pleasure to spend half a day with you and share my knowledge.
Chris KingUnited States
Michaela was an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide. She arrived to my hotel early and she kept us moving throughout Milan at a perfect pace. She knows so much about the city! I was impressed that one human brain could remember so much! She was an excellent guide and I would use her services again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris, thank you for the beautiful comment. It will be my pleasure to guide you again

Angel CintronUnited States
Tour guide was fantastic. She was very informative and very, very accommodating and cordial. She knew the history of Milan and all of the sights we visited. She was very detailed in her explanation of things. Only recommendation....when meeting people at the train station or airports...have a sign. It took a while for us to hook up with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Angel, Thank you for everything. I will follow your advice.
