What to Expect
Meet your guide at a designated meeting point in Milan, then set off to explore Milan’s hip and artistic food hub on a neighborhood tour. The group size is limited, giving you an insider’s overview of the area and personalized attention from the local guide.

Dishes vary depending on the season, so you’ll be guaranteed fresh and tasty treats at any time of year. Learn about the city’s evolving history, from its ancient origins and Renaissance-era canals —possibly designed by Leonard Da Vinci— to the futuristic business district of Porta Nuova.

This tour was amazing, there was only me, my boyfriend and one other person on the tour, which made it very personal. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area and super friendly. The food we tried was so tasty, if you go to Milan I would highly recommend doing this

Had a nice walk around Brera area tasting various kinds of Italian food. Tastings were yummy and I especially liked the wine store as it had a great 100 year history and original store fixtures. Unfortunately the guide was not from Milan and she knew nothing about the history of

Response from sery_eflorence, General Manager at Milan Food Walking Tour of Brera
Responded Sep 22, 2019
Firstly, I am sorry that our Milan Food Tour did not meet your expectations. We work very hard to make sure that anyone who tours with us has a fantastic time. All of our guides are licensed professionals and should be able to answer any questions thoroughly. On Friday when I saw this review I scheduled a meeting with our Milan Operations Manager to discuss what can be done to ensure our guides continue to treat the food tour as an historical, cultural tour with delicious food stops. This week we will be working with the guides to remind them of exactly what is expected regarding context and cultural perspective. Thank you for choosing us and once more my apologies that it wasn't as awesome as you (and I) expect it to be.

Loved the walking tour. Excellent guide. She clearly enjoyed her job. Happy, positive person. Delicious food. I really enjoyed walking throughout Brera to explore the neighborhood. There were only four of us which made it a small personalized tour.
