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

Said and done! This is what I call being consistent. Thank you Bob and all of you. I knew you could have spent hours in that shop. Think of me when you'll drink that wonderful wine. We did enjoy a very pleasant morning and the weather was perfect. A real blessing. All best to all of you. 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.

We are a family of 6 adults and travelled by minibus from our cruise ship in Livorno, using the company that Wanda recommended. Wanda is very passionate about her town and rightly so as it is beautiful and... More

Silvia was fabulous and showed us all the interesting sights, told us about the history of this remarkable town and most importantly, helped us... More

Wanda is extremely knowledgeable not only about Lucca but European history which makes for a fanatic tour. You would be foolish to spend time in Lucca without at least contacting Wanda. Thanks again, Wanda, for the unique perspective of your beautiful town, Lucca.
