The tour although only for an hour was very informative, thoroughly enjoyed it. The history of La Scala is fascinating

This is no "behind the scenes" tour. There's no value to this compared to just buying a ticket and walking around. She stood in front of a diagram of the theater and read the text printed on the screen.

La Scala is beautiful but I did not particularly enjoy the tour as I had a lot of trouble understanding the guide's English.

The guide provided interesting information, but the lights were off in the theatre, so not much of the theatre itself could be seen.

The tour guide was very informative and the museum part of the theatre was very interesting. We were very disappointed because we weren't able to do a tour of the theatre because they were rehearsing at the time. It did say on our ticket that depending on the schedule of events the tour could change, but we were still pretty disappointed.

Too many people

The group was way too large and the guide was either tired that day or uninterested. We got an enormous amount of information delivered monotone. Sometimes out device couldn't pick up her voice because there were so many in the group and going upstairs we were too far away.

La Scala Opera to Milan intersting to hear its history and famous performers just wish the number of people in the tour was smaller as the auditorium isn't very big.

Our group was around 40 people, way too large for such a tour and for the price I paid. While the tour guide was knowledgeable, informative and entertaining it was not what I expected. Too much focus on the museum aspect.
