Our guide Sara was knowledgeable, had a vast experience in the fashion industry and was vivacious. She made our Milan experience complete. This tour is a MUST.


We had the most memorable tour with Francesca. She was so helpful in every store and even made arrangements with store personnel to find what we were looking for at their other branches. Except for all the well known designers she showed us many vintage stores with the most amazing fashion items. Francesca shared so much knowledge about the history of Milan and details about different landmarks which we enjoyed so much. Very helpful, friendly and I will definitely recommend her as a guide for bookings of this tour. Also provided us with more info for other places we can visit. Thanks Francesca for all the memories we made today and making us feel so welcome in Milan!!


Our tour guide, “Zse”, was amazing - extremely personable, knowledgable, and with great historical perspective! I would not hesitate to book this tour. This was my third time visiting Milan and, after the tour, I have a whole new perspective on this city. I was not interested, necessarily, in fashion, however, I found the tour and content fascinating! If you think Milan is bland and nothing special, you need to experience this excursion to be exposed to the other side of Milan!


Sara was a fantastic tour guide! She tailored our time together to what I was interested in seeing and took me to some fantastic local artisans where I bought some awesome boots and a beautiful leather handbag, both made by Milanese designers/store owners. By far the highlight of my time in Milan!


All of it! It was probably the best tour ever!! Everything was beautifully laid out from our walking path to the fascination stories.


Amazing! Loved spending time with Sze, he was so knowledgeable about Milanese fashion. I learned so much about the origins of Milanese RTW and how to apply the ideas. Bought a dress at La Double J and a top from Missoni, which I love! Also great tip for pastries at Marchesi for my 8 year old daughter. Thanks Sze!

Sze was very generous with his time after we were delayed arriving at the meeting point. Sze has not only a wealth of Milan fashion industry knowledge but also Milan’s history and how this became woven into Milan becoming the centre for ready to wear apparel. Sze also explained how the family fashion houses became established. It was a pleasure to have Sze as our guide.


My wife and I immensely enjoyed the tour with Sze. The experience far exceeded our expectations. Normally, with even the most skilled of tour guides, we begin to tire beyond 2 hours. Here 3 hours went by in a blink! Sze has an obvious passion for fashion that reflects itself not only in his knowledge but his ability to meld the tangible and conceptual aspects of fashion into compelling storytelling. Moreover, being well read about modern culture, history, business practices, etc gifts him with the ability to connect subtle details about clothing to complex societal elements. A remarkably aware gentleman. We are grateful for having met him!


Great day. Our guide, Sze, was very knowledgeable, friendly and interested in our views/areas of interest. Would highly recommend.


Sara uniquely showed us the fashion landmarks in Milan. We were able to experience the role Milan plays in the fashion industry. Loved Sara’s enthusiastic personality and amazing knowledge! Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Milan!
