Lucca is a fantastic City, no cars so bike friendly historic architecture and reminded me of York in the UK. However although you can see somethings yourself I... More

Wanda did a lovely job of educating and entertaining our large and diverse group of family members (from 8 months to 91 years!). Her knowledge of Lucca and of Italian history made the tour very interesting and the city of Lucca is a beautiful place. Not only was her tour wonderful, but she recommended several places in Lucca to visit... More

Beyond her detailed knowledge of Lucca, Wanda is resourceful and cares enough to tailor a tour to meet your needs. My family's ancestors immigrated to the United States over 100 years ago from a...

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

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.

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
