My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our van tour to two vineyards in the Luccan hills with Andrea. The visits to the vineyards that we visited were very well organized and we got a great taste of the local food and wines as well as a great trip around the countryside. If I am in the area I would do... More

Whilst having a short trip in LUcca and surrounding arae myself and partner decided to explore the countryside by bike. Paolo could not have been more helpful from the pre planning, having 2 bikes made up with GPS and a "personal" trip/circuit already setup, to the help provided when we picked up top notch equipment and set off on our...

Heartily recommend NOW's Van Wine Tour. Six of us new to Lucca had a great day out, helped by knowledgeable and entertaining guide Paolo. Organization was very last-minute on my part, but NOW staff were helpful and patient.

We went on the same tour as Barb in sept -11. I have to say that I disagree with her. First of all, the pace was quite slow. Ok, we are used to riding bicycles because we live in Finland and everyone cycles here more or less. But still, it was 25 degrees and I didn't even sweat. We had... More

I visit Lucca a few times a year with my husband. He works there and I explore the area on my own. Before riding with No Ordinary Way I would just take the hotel bike and ride on top of the wall and through town. While that is certainly beautifiul this was much more of an adventure. It's the perfect... More

Our family of four adults biked from Lucca to Pisa. I wasn't sure I'd be able to bike 33km but the route was mostly level along bike trails and back roads with minimal cars. The route was gorgeous going along the river and past farmlands and mountains. We stopped midway at a village and had drinks and pastries at a... More

Be sure you have the same meaning for "easy" bike tour as the tour guide. We ride regularly for recreation (not hard, avid bike riders) and took bike tours almost everywhere we went in Europe, and this is the only one we had any problems keeping up (or wanting to keep up). It is described as "easy" and it certainly... More

Dear Barbara thanks for your review. I'm glad you liked the main attractions of the tour, the winery and the farm. I'm also happy that all your negative opinions were just about me and not about the itinerary that is very good. We have other guides and I could decide to stop as guide if in the future other persons... More

My wife and I visited Lucca in early September 2011. Unfortunately we hadn't booked a tour in advance but visited Not Ordinary Tours and met with Paolo. He was very helpful and contacted a number of wineries and was able to arrange a couple of tours for us on short notice. The tours were wonderful and well chosen. We first... More

We had a wonderful time with Andrea on the bike tour! We rode through the beautiful Lucca countryside and stopped at this wonderful winery. The owner was so passionate about wine, taking us through each step of the process and even showing us the containers and barrels which house the wines. We tasted some of the most incredible wines and... More

We returned to Lucca again this year. While planning my trip I contacted Andrea of Not Ordinary Ways for a winery tour. Another wonderful experience. We were a group of 20 renting a villa. Andrea, Paolo and Mateo, picked us up in 3 vans and took us on a great tour. We visited Fattoria Fubbiano in San Gennaro, where me... More
