This was a great tour and one we are glad to have taken as we learnt so much about the history of both Milan and La Scala. Our tour guide was exceptional and very knowledgeable and friendly. We arrived 10 mins prior at the meeting spot and found our tour guide right away with no trouble. Highly recommend.

The guided tour by Mrs. Lorella Baroncelli was very pleasant. Ms. Boroncelli is very knowledgeable and knowledgeable, her explanations were informative and amusing. We learned a lot of interesting things about La Scala and were lucky enough to witness an opera rehearsal. Overall, we really enjoyed the tour. Not cheap, but recommended!

Booking this tour was the absolute best decision!! The privately guided tour was well organized and the lady was very competent and personable. She knew her way around in every respect and was able to help us with great tips when we had spontaneous questions! In the opera house, she is known to the security and we have enjoyed some advantages as a result. The fact that we were able to watch a rehearsal of a ballet performance at the end made the tour a unique experience. My husband and I would 100% recommend!!
