We toured Lucca by Wanda last year, A++++ This year we decided fot the villa tour. Wanda gave us lovely insights in the history of the area, the people and the architecture! She is a very knowledgable, likeable, charming person. Highly recommended by a returning customer!

Dear T & M, YOU are a delight to be with! Lucca must feel like second home to you, by now. The heat was unbearable but you put up with it bravely. After Stevie and Mark Knopfler, whom would you like to see next year? Thank you again and very warm regards to you and Tessa, the cat. w More

Lucca is an amazing town to walk around in or bike on the wall. I highly recommend renting bikes to tour the city wall. We did two trips around. First just to experience the city and the second to stop and take pictures. the town is very quaint and gives the visitor all of the old world charm without the... More

Wanda took us on a short tour of the city, explaining Lucca's fascinating history and giving us a flavour of Modern Lucca. The tour was brilliant - informative and relaxed. Wanda made sure to point out the things that aren't in the tourist brochures as well as the well-known attractions. We would highly recommend Wanda as a tour guide.

Lucca is a charming city in Tuscany. We had the pleasure of seeing Lucca through the eyes of our fabulous guide Wanda Martinelli. Her family has resided in Lucca for 8 generations. We spent the day with her and had a fabulous experience. We plan to return to Lucca, as Wanda made it so enjoyable. We would highly recommend her... More

Wanda (pronounced Vonda) Martinelli was our guide in Lucca and vicinity. Of all the guides we had during our vacation, Wanda is unique. Full Stop. (she’ll understand). Her deep knowledge of the region and its history laced with tidbits about some of the key personages who shaped culture and history brought history alive for us. Unlike most guides, she engaged...

Wanda Martinelli met us at our apartment in Lucca and for 3 hours she enthusiastically led us through the streets of Lucca. We got a good understanding of the evolution of Lucca, its three walls, from ancient time to modern times. How the city avoided wars, gained wealth and power and why and how the main churches, walls and other... More

Sharing a taxi van with four others we came to Lucca, to the main square and then explored the town as best we could. Narrow streets and some confusing directions could not take away from this lovely walled town. There are endlss places to eat and we found ourselves outside a small hole in the wall bakery.
