My daughter and I learned about Wanda's tours from Trip Advisor, and, after reading the glowing reviews, we booked our tour in advance. Every moment of our day long walking tour was packed... More

Wanda gave us a personalized private tour of Lucca that included architectural, economic, art and cultural history of this delightful walled city. There seems to be no topic that Wanda is not knowledgeable about. She graciously adjusted her pacing and content to our mixed group of adults and kids We met with her at the height of the afternoon and... More

Dear Julie, you surprised me from the beginning. When there is a will, there is a way. Not many people are adventurous enough to travel from La Spezia to Lucca by train, but you made it. You also agreed to wait for me to finish my morning tour AND you wrote a review! A wonderful review, in fact. A national... More

Wanda M, Owner at Lucca Tours, responded to this review

Dear Rune, you were kind enough not to mention the fact that the birthday cake showed one day too early and it probably spoilt the surprise you had already arranged! However, I truly enjoyed your company and the deep conversation about current Italian and internations affairs. I truly hope to see you and M. again. Thank you. Wanda More

This year I had my 4th personal tour by Wanda. My first tour in 2013 was an absolutely great tour within the walls of Lucca. My second visit to Lucca later in 2013, my tour focused on the background and details of the Luminaria (an amazing September event) that was happening that evening. The next visit to Lucca, I asked... More
