My daughter and I met Wanda in Lucca for a brief tour. Even though we were delayed due to trains, she was willing to wait for us. She took us on a wonderful informative tour and was charming to my 13 year old daughter, keeping her involved. She took us to a wonderful bookshop/coffee shop. We had fantastic pizza and... More

My pleasure, dear C and Maddy! Especially after you made it to Lucca in spite of all the maddening train delays. It was meant to be, indeed. Enjoy your book and the other, very special souvenir. Lol, wanda More

We had a wonderful few hours with Wanda, seeing the highlights of Lucca. Wanda really made the history come alive with stories about buildings, statues etc that were fascinating. She really included our 12yo and was very accommodating with our baby also. Highly recommend.

We are an Iowa travel agency and recently booked a walking tour of Lucca for a small group of VIP clients. Wanda was a pleasure to work with all throughout the process of planning this trip, and patiently answered all of our questions. There is nothing more valuable to a travel agent than a personal contact with someone like Wanda,... More

The tour of Lucca by Wanda Matinelli was excellent. Wanda has an amazing knowledge of the City and is able to communicate that knowledge, something not all guides are able to do. We very much enjoyed our tour and would take another guided tour from Wanda. We recommend her without hesitation.
