A simple but good tour to bring you to Foxtown and bring you back to Milan without any hustle.Reviewed by: darien_phan, May 2013
This is the 2nd time we visited Foxtown. Overall, we still prefer Foxtown over the other outlets in Italy that we had visited because Foxtown offers more varieties and the shops are better stocked up generally. However, the prices (before tax rebate) in Foxtown are slightly higher than other outlets and the tax rebate is lower at 5% compare with outlets in Italy (at 11 to 12%). The total shopping time given by the tour is about 4 hours so one has to pre-determine which shops he wants to visit.Reviewed by: Alain, Singapore, May 2013
It was great to take the bus tour past lovely Lake Como and enter Switzerland but that's where the fun stopped for me, over priced more a shopping mall than a discount outlet centre. I loved the journey though.Reviewed by: Margaret G, June 2013
The transport service is good and on time. However, the provided time (3 hours) for shopping is too short. We missed lots of other brands which we intended to visit because lack of time. In our opinion, you will need to spare at least 5 hours for the shopping.Reviewed by: Hendry K, May 2013
The drive and scenery was good, but the overall tour could have been better or I could ave chosen to do something else . The driver was a little rough and didn't explain things properly or better and of course many of us were not from Europe. The first big problem or misunderstanding was about the "tax free" shopping. When we were crossing the border back into Milan, he stopped and said something over the microphone but didn't quite understand. Needless to say, something was mentioned about shopping and tax free and that we should ask information once at the outlet. Well I did and they told me I had no problem. When we stopped at the border, I saw folks with a special envelope and when I asked one young lady where did she get that, she said the store gave it to her. I didn't get one, but I didn't spend over $300. So I say that to say, whoever the tour guide/ driver is, they should be a bit more clearer in explaining something like that for especially travelers who are not familiar with certain laws and or restrictions. I could have gotten in trouble :-). I for one don't need 4 hrs to shop if I know what I want, I go get it and its done. I also thought the tour specified that we would get coupons to some stores which would take an extra % off but the only thing that was handed out to us was a coupon off for chocolates. I personally could have done without going and done a different tour. I'm no shop o holic, so maybe I should not have gone. It was just OK!Reviewed by: Rose J, USA, May 2013
