    Excellent tour... definitely exceeded our expectations. Charles (our guide) was exceptional, we really enjoyed his tour (he is super knowledgeable and a big part of the arts & history culture of Milan). He speaks multiple languages and will make you feel at ease and comfortable during the tour (it was 4 of us in the tour and we were able to get all of our questions answered)... If you are here for the history, Leonardo, Michelangelo, etc. I believe you will love the tour.
