My husband and I had SUCH a fun night with Daniele and Antonio for our private walking food tour. We got a lot of great info from both of them and it also felt like we were just hanging out and enjoying the company. The stops are all really thoughtful and there are quite a few different bites to taste so I felt it was really generous. The bites are not entirely Milan-specific except for a couple but by the end we felt we learned a lot about Milan and its food. Our stomachs were satisfied after a great evening.

The tour was very successful and interesting. The guid was very kind and patient, explained cultural and historical aspects of the dishes and food in Milan. Thank you a lot.
