Milan City Tour
We experienced this fabulous tour with Giacomo, a young enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgeable guide with an infectious passion for his city. We learned about the history - medieval, Renaissance, post-war and more recent. In particular we discovered the fascinating art and cultural intricacies that are lesser known. The Library holding Da Vinci's mechanical drawings in particular. La Scala of course and while we weren't able to obtain tickets to The Last Supper due to our own lack of organization, Giacomo more than made up for this with other interesting locales. His tips for visiting particular restaurants, in particular in the Navigli area, proved perfect also. While I think the tour is quite over-priced $500
AUD for 3.5 hours), Giacomo certainly proved his worth. Thank you again Giacomo. Like a Local - a price adjustment is definitely in order. We'd private tours in most cities and this wasn't far the most expensive despite being excellent. Regards, Danielle & Steve (Melbourne)

Giacomo was a wonderful guide! Our group consisted of 6 adults and 6 children. He involved everyone and really made everyone feel very engaged in the tour. His depth of knowledge was impressive and his excitement for the city of Milan was contagious!

We booked a 3 hr day tour in Milan. It was very informative. The tour guide Silvia is very helpful and friendly. She brought us around and gave us clear explanation throughout. The booking process was easy and precise. Giocomo replied the emails promptly and gave us addition information on how to get to the meeting place. Precise and sincere. Thanks! We enjoyed ourselves!

We had a three hour private tour with Giacomo Zavatteri and it was so worth the money! He made sure we saw everything we desired to see. He was prompt and dependable, a great communicator, and his warmth and friendliness was outstanding. He is very knowledgeable about his wonderful city, and took us to some amazing places. The Last Supper was a humbling experience, not to be missed. Giacomo had our tickets ahead of time so there was no waiting in line. He was very attentive and sensitive to the fact I had knee problems and was limited in my walking. He even waited patiently while I lit a candle for my sick Uncle at the Duomo. He is a jewel and we would highly recommend him as a tour guide.
