Emilio was very knowledgeable about the city and showed us how to drive a Segway properly. He made sure we were comfortable and was a great teacher. The Segway is a very easy way to see a large part of Milan. Would definitely recommend!

Very reliable, competent and friendly guide. It was three very interesting hours in which some secrets about Milan were revealed to us. The time flew by. A must-do for those interested in history and culture. Highly recommended!

Guide very interesting, lots of details. Due to the weather, we were not able to go to the Duomo platform and the tour ended 1/2 hour earlier than planned

An experience that I recommend. The segway, if you haven't tried it, is phenomenal. Easy to learn and very comfortable to use.

He did a great job! Very patient and knowledgeable. Thank you!
