The tour was good - not the best but not bad either. There were quite a few people and little ability to ask questions. Though the guide’s English was very good, I did have trouble understanding her meaning from time to time. The line to get the elevator to the roof was so long that we skipped going altogether.

Excellent experience and must do in Milan. The history of Duomo and the way our guide explained was very interesting. Only thing is the meeting point location should change since it is now near the tickets booth. Infoarea is different and I thought I almost missed it though I came half an hour early.

This tour is worth every penny spent on it. 90 minutes packed with information and unforgettable experience. Also, time saver - we did not have to wait a single minute to enter the duomo, or the archeological site, or going up to the terrace. Our tour guide was fantastic, narrative filled with both information and attitude. That is undoubtedly the best way to visit the duomo.

Very nice and a lot of information given by the guide. We are glad we took it so we can understand all the different things that we were seen. Also going to the terrace was great to see the city from above as well as all the intricate construction and gargoyles that surround the building. With the guide we got a fast pass to the elevators to get to the top. Going down was fun but narrow passage. You could take elevator down but you had to wait in line. It is always easy to go down than up the stairs. It is worth the price plus you get a very nice explanation of the cathedral as well as the sculptures in the area. Saint Bartholomew sculpture is very impressive with details as well as the story given by the guide. We took pictures of everything as the cathedral is one of the biggest and it shows. Close to shopping, if you are into high end merchandise, and the food was exquisite no matter where you go

Giulia was a wonderful guide. She was detailed and thorough in all of her explanations and descriptions of the Duomo; Features, characteristics, and history of the Duomo! What a magnificent church! We are so happy we got a chance to see it with such a wonderful guide.

The guided tour was excellent and worth the money. Despite being a busy area of Milan we were able to find our meeting point quickly and easily, then the guide made sure the party was kept together throughout. The Duomo “Milan Cathedral and Terraces Guided Tour” is stunning, and having the expertise and knowledgeable guide made it even better. The walk across the Terraces is well worth it, the views across Milan out amazing and you can see the fine detail and effort made building the Duomo.

Meeting point was very easy to find, security check was smooth, and literally went inside with no waiting time. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and super sweet. At the end of the tour, we got to skip the line for the rooftop! On our way up there, we had access to the elevator and had a short climb, before being rewarded with a really nice view! On our way back down, we took the stairs but it was not as bad as I thought. Too bad the rooftop of the Duomo was under renovations when we were there (August 2022)

This was a great tour! The tour guide (I forgot her name, but she was so nice) was easy to find and I loved that we were able to beat the lines. I wish I remembered our guide's name because she was just full of knowledge about the most obscure things in the duomo - I loved it! We were able to go underground and obviously to the terraces. Fair warning, even though we take a lift to the terraces, it only takes you partly there. There are still some stairs, so be aware of that! Gorgeous views, knowledgable tour guide, and interesting facts. What more could you ask for!?

What a wonderful experience! Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke very clearly. She was easy to find she took her time and was funny too. Duomo was breath taking. The detail was stunning. We were overall very impressed! I only use for traveling and highly suggest you do the same.

The tour was fabulous and our guide was terrific. The meeting point was not clear. We were early and walked around to several locations that we thought "might" be the location and we were not correct. no one answered the phone at the number we were provided. Luckily the tour provider called us 10 minutes after the scheduled tour time wondering where we were, so we did connect. the tour meets on the South side of the building toward the center and does not meet at the main entrance of the Duomo.
