Even though we were late, they waited for us and the guide was super nice about it. I highly recommend doing this first if you're staying in Milan for a few days. It's a great way to see what only needs a first & last glance as well as note what you need to get back to.

It was a great way of discovering Milan. The game took us through streets we would never have taken otherwise. Easy to follow instructions, take it at your own pace. You can stop, explore and then continue the game. Highly recommend for those who like walking.
