I agree with the writings below. Wanda really made our first introduction to Lucca and the history of this historical city. My mother and I cannot ever thank her enough for taking the time to spend with us on our tour. We will see her again to continue to learn of this great area. Thank you everyone for writing about...

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.

What a wonderfully morning we spent touring Lucca with Wanda. Her passion for the city comes to life when you tour with her. She certainly knows Lucca and the surrounding areas, it's where she grew up. She makes the tour not only interesting but fun, good since of humor. She also give great tips for restaurant and places to visit.... More

My wife and I met Wanda on our first trip to Lucca two years ago, when she took us on an excellent tour of this wonderful city. Paying a return visit this year, we wanted to explore some of the surrounding countryside as well as experience a Tuscan vineyard. We contacted Wanda, explained what we were looking for, and she...

After reading Wanda's wonderful reviews, we booked her for our private tour of Lucca. We were an adult family of 8 who wanted our own private guide to show us the sites. Wanda's english was excellent and she made the experience very personal. Wanda was very easy to deal with from the time of booking through to our arrival. Wanda... More

After a long day in Lucca, we started to look for a taxi...45 minutes later and sore feet none in site. Finally, we happened across Gigi a very affable taxi driver. He handled the tight roads going up to Relais La Cappella...more importantly he showed up on time to pick us up for the train. 33 96688838

We had 3 families with a total of 7 children on our tour. Wanda's excitement and passion communicating her knowledge of Lucca captured the attention of both adults AND children. She was upbeat, fun and moved quickly to show us all she could during our 3 hour tour. I would highly recommend her as a private guide to learn about... More

We had an amazing experience with Wanda. We were two couples visiting for a weekend concert and contacted Wanda at the last minute.

Her English is absolutely perfect, and she was... More
