Milan Food Tour
End on a Sweet Note
Yes. If you have any specific allergies/intolerances, please indicate these in the Travel Notes section during booking. Your guide will do his or her best to accommodate, though please note that some shops we visit do use wheat flour and nuts in the kitchen for other items. Again, please make note of any dietary issues. If you are booking privately, we can customize a route that will avoid such items, something that we cannot fully do on our small group walks.
The walk takes place within the city center, and stays within a relatively concentrated area. Your confirmation email will have the exact meeting point details along with a map, and 24/7 phone number.
For private groups, yes. The content might be a little different but we can adjust. Please note your preferred start time in the travel notes section.
Tours operate rain or shine, but in the case of inclement weather, your guide will modify the tour so more time is spent indoors. It never hurts to have an umbrella on hand.
Please let us know your requirements and we may well be able to adjust the tour for reduced mobility.
This walk is not a part of our official family program. That said, we may be able to arrange a visit with a family-friendly guide. Please contact us.
