We took a family trip on a trip from New York. We had two boys with teenagers and, to be honest, I was worried that my sons would get bored. Although it was a young guide on the day, it was very educated and explained in a straightforward manner. My sons often asked for explanation and said that they were very good and we were able to participate in a very satisfying and wonderful tour.
My wife and I visited Milan, Italy earlier this week. At the last minute, we signed up through Viator for a skip-the-line tour of the Last Supper. Our tour also included the Milan Cathedral, the Galleria and La Scala Theater and various sites in between. We could not have been more pleased with our personal guide, Valeria De Benedetti. Valeria was warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. Her love and enthusiasm for Milan was quite contagious. Our 3 1/2 hour tour with Valeria was a highlight of our Italian visit.We were also pleased with the local tour company that arranged out tour through Viator.
Our guide Roberto was very knowledgeable and provided a comprehensive explanation of the key sites. We started with the Last Supper and we walked to the Milan Cathedral where the tour ended. Tourists are allowed to see the Last Supper in groups with a strict time limit about 15 minutes. Roberto provided a detailed explanation of the Last Supper. However, a couple of key points would have been better with more detail provided once we were outside so we could spend more time taking the painting in. Roberto pointed out a number of interesting sites on the walk to the Milan Cathedral such as Roman ruins and he took us straight into the Cathedral skipping a very, very long line.
Paivi was amazing. Nice history of the city. She gave great commentary and she Made it personal to our liking. She also Adjusted the schedule to take us on a subway ride which we really wanted. she Gave great recommendations for lunch and was a super guide inside the Last Supper. Highly recommend her. 5
I'm on my husband and I recently traveled to Milan with our sister-in-law. We had an afternoon to spend before catching a flight out home. For many years we have wanted to see the Last Supper. We also have a niece that has son Nicholas,. Because of the time constraints, this tour looked ideal. Although it was expensive, it was worth every penny. Not only where are we able to see the cathedral, LaScala, and the Last Supper, our wonderful and knowledgeable guide, Fedbra directed us to a local pastry shop to rest our feet and have tea after her tour was over. A private, local café had some of the most delicious pastries ever. I would highly recommend this tour, but most particularly our tour guide, Fedra Luisa Pavesi. Her English, her love of Milan and its treasures and her expertise made our experience truly memorable.
The guide was amazing. She spoke perfect English AND Russian for my girlfriend. We started at the Last Supper; hit a couple more cathedrals; and the castle. Maria was a historian and was very detailed with all sites we visited. Doing a private tour is a little more expensive, but you can ask as many questions as you want. You are in constant conversation. It was amazing! Thank you, Maria.
We had an excellent private tour with Freda who was very passionate and knowledgeable. The experience viewing the Last Supper was so moving, especially with Freda's commentary and description in great detail. I would highly recommend this tour. We had to plan a private tour in order to get to Milan from Lake Como and to continue on to Rome with an afternoon train. It was perfectly planned and worth the price we paid.
We took this three hour tour that started at the Duomo and concluded at the Last Supper, with my wife and daughter. We found the experience extremely rewarding. Our guide, Daniela, did a great job, was very knowledgeable and pleasant and very responsive to our requests. She even changed the itinerary a bit, in response to out interests/questions. We would highly recommend this tour and our guide.
Fedra, our guide, took us on a private tour of The Last Supper, the Duomo and all the streets in between. She was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and enjoyable to be with. She answered all our questions and brought Milan to life for us. It was wonderful to have a guide who was born, raised, and educated in Milan.
