My sister arranged a tour with Wanda. We spent 3 hours touring Lucca with a focus on the history. It was fabulous. Wanda’s depth of knowledge is bottomless. She presented information with passion and humor and fun anecdotes. Clearly she loves Lucca and loves to share information that brings it to life. We could wander Lucca and see what we saw but after Wanda’s tour, we wandered Lucca and knew what was hidden within the walls and saw details we would never have seen without her. Can not say enough about how the tour added to the richness of our visit.

This was the official 2 hour walking tour of Lucca, booked online through the Lucca tourist office, beginning 2pm from the tourist office nearest the Porta San Donata/bus terminal, hosted by the lovely Luchia.
We really enjoyed our afternoon with our English speaking guide and learned much about the city and its inhabitants. Many churches! We are in our seventies, quite fit, but thought if the walk proved too much we could slip away, but in the event, the walk wasn’t that physically challenging, and we completed the whole thing and were able to better understand our bearings when out and about on our own.
Thank you Luchia. X Not sure if our spelling of her name is correct.

Wanda is so friendly and enthusiastic we couldn't recommend her more strongly. She kept us laughing and enthralled throughout, Wanda knows all the best parts to this gorgeous place and has very funny anecdotes for all the historical sites and figures.

Wanda is amazing! I’m so glad I found her. We did a half day walking/biking tour of Lucca & a half day villa tour with her. On both tours, she gave us a detailed overview of the historical and cultural context of the city and the surrounding area. She is passionate about the subject, which we very much appreciated! One person in our party had difficulty finishing the Villa tour on a hot day and she went above and beyond to make sure we were all ok. I cannot recommend her enough. If I am lucky enough to come back to Lucca, I will hire her again.

Wanda did such a great job of introducing us to the beautiful city of Lucca. She is very knowledgeable about the city and the area, partly because she was born and raised there and partly because she’s well studied. She was very kind to answer our questions, was very considerate of our needs and wishes, and helped us to see the city through the eyes of a true Lucchese! If you’re coming to Lucca I strongly recommend using Lucca Tours!

Wanda is a fabulous guide. Her knowledge of Lucca in particular inspired me to dig a little deeper. She paced the tour nicely, and made some great recommendations for quick refreshment stops.
Her choice of vineyards, Montechiari, pretty much made our whole trip.
I would highly recommend she and her company, Lucca Tours for anyone interested in that area of Tuscany.

Wanda is a wonderful tour guide as well as just a wonderful person. We highly recommend taking a tour with Wanda - we’ve done two so far and plan to do more on another visit to Lucca. The first tour we did was a half day walking tour of the city and we walked away feeling like we truly knew Lucca. This visit we did a tour of two villas in the countryside. She very carefully chose two that gave us very different views of life in the countryside. Her kindness and her knowledge make any tour she does worthy of five stars (wish I could give her 10!).

Wanda was such an excellent tour guide. She is from a family that has lived in Lucca for generations and her story telling ability is top notch. She has a great command of the history of Lucca, as well as introducing the tour to many of the idiosyncrasies of the population. Everyone in our group said they would love to visit Lucca again, and I would definitely book another tour with Wanda. In addition to the tour, she helped us with making a reservation at LaBuca, which was by far the best restaurant I ate in during our stay in Italy. I would highly recommend Wanda’s services.

Wanda is an engaging and energetic tour guide who made every second of our tour interesting. From describing the history of the city walls and key sites in town to pointing out artisanal shops of interest to my family, the time flew by. She was also very helpful in suggesting other attractions to see outside the city and even sent me some detailed resources to learn about potential Lucchese ancestors. I’d recommend her in a heartbeat and wouldn’t hesitate to hire her again the next time we’re in the Lucca area. Thank you Wanda!

After check-in at the excellent L'Antica Bifore Guesthouse, the first memory of our arrival from bustling Florence to the city of Lucca was meeting our very special tour guide, Wanda Martinelli. From the moment that she welcomed us to her city, we were taken on a journey that spanned centuries, traveled ancient streets, filled piazzas and churches, and introduced us to legends and saints. Our time with Wanda, though short, provided the humor, cultural history and visual descriptions that accompanied us through our days in Lucca. We cannot praise Wanda enough for bringing the walled city of Lucca to life. We cannot imagine anyone better to tell the story of this wonderful city.
