Laura was a knowledgeable guide who silently responded to our requests. She was very nice and not a senior teacher, which made the exchange easier and a pleasure. It should be mentioned that getyourguide organized our very short-term booking (5 p.m. for 10 a.m. the following day) without a hitch. Even the for and ideal German-speaking guide was organized - chapeau!

Visit of the city with Lara, excellent moment with a guide speaking admirably French and with an exceptional knowledge of the city. Must do during a trip to Milan. In addition, because of the covid barrier gestures, we were entitled to an exclusive visit for our couple instead of the 6 people announced. I recommend.

Laura was amazing!

Laura, our guide, was excellent. She customized the tour to allow us to see whatever we were most interested in, and still knew everything we asked about anything. We wanted to see the inside of LaScala (which was not on the tour), and she arranged that, but also was able to give us a very interesting tour of LaScala, including its history and how it has changed. She couldn’t have been nicer, or more knowledge and interesting.
