    Charming Lucca
    Jane_W, Feb 2024
    We made a day trip from Florence and had a wonderful tour in Lucca with Chiara! She was very knowledgable and interesting to learn from and she introduced us to some yummy typical foods of Lucca! We would highly recommend this tour!
    Excellent walking tour of Lucca
    Lucy_D, Oct 2023
    Marta was an excellent tour guide. She is extremely friendly and informative. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Lucca. The food and drinks were tasty and more than I expected. We will not soon forget the laughs we had sitting under the canopy of a trattoria in the torrential rain. Grazie Mille Marta.
    Excellent tour of Lucca with lots of variety.
    Jennifer_S, Sep 2023
    Marta’s knowledge of Lucca was remarkable. We enjoyed the variety of food stops, history of the wall and the city and the magnificent churches.
    Fabulous excursion!

    Art, history, and food at its best
    elizabeth_s, Jul 2023
    The walk through Lucca was great because detailed information was provided about the structures and how they developed and were shaped by history. We learned so much. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable about Lucca. The tour included two food experiences. A pastry and coffee shop which was absolutely great. And a lunch at the end of the tour which was also great. At both of these stops the guide had prearranged all details making transitions smooth and creating time for the other parts of the tour. Highly recommend this tour.

    Nadia was amazing. Super knowledgeable. Super personable. Really opened our eyes to this tiny little fascinating town that we only had a short time to explore. We tasted new things and had such a fun time. Highly recommend!
    Beautiful village
    Simone_G, Apr 2023
    Lucca is a lovely village and it was wonderful to walk through it and learn a bit more about it and taste some of the foods
    Loved it!

    Meeting location was easy to find, right in front of Lucca train station. Our guide Chiara was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and friendly, she really made the tour so relaxed and enjoyable. We learned so much about Lucca and enjoyed eating together with our group and chatting. Perfect addition to our trip.
    Great tour to visit a great city
    Diane_D, Oct 2022
    We booked this tour last minute with a few other couples. The tour was great from getting to the location to experiencing the town (we stayed in Chianti). We drove in and parked at the train station meeting the guide a very short walk away. The city was beautiful and we learned a lot walking around in our small group. The guide was very knowledgeable and the food was excellent. I suggest the Cecina as it is one of the things Lucca is known for food wise. I highly recommend this trip.
    Lucca food and history.
    James_M, Oct 2022
    Just enough history presented to make it very interesting. Our guide was very easy to understand and of course extremely knowledgeable of the city of Lucca. Had some delicious local fare as well.
    Fun morning in Lucca
    Alexandria_F, Sep 2022
    Such a fantastic way to get to know Lucca. I felt like I was strolling the City with a super knowledgeable friend.
    Finding new experience’s and friends
    Rodney_B, Sep 2022
    Our tour was made memorable by our guide “Chiara”. She made us fell like we were taking a tour with a long time friend and was very knowledgeable on the history of Lucca and of Italy. We stopped at several places for food and had things we had never experienced before. I was a great experience and we would highly recommend it !
    The best way to experience Lucca
    David_T, Sep 2022
    An excellent tour to learn about the history of Lucca and where it fit in from the Roman times, to the pre-renaissance period where it maintained it’s independence, to the building of the Renaissance walls and finally the influence of Napoleon’s sister, Elisa. The walk thru the city brought the history to life as our guide pointed out details that you would normally miss. The stops to sample Luccese foods was an added treat. The highlight was learning the story of the Volto Santo, The Holy Face of Lucca, since we will be in Lucca for Luminara Santa Croce on 13 September.
    Italy and food what could be better?
    Kim_S, Aug 2022
    Wonderful tour of Lucca with 3 stops for food. Enjoyed hearing local history but the best part was enjoying the food! First food stop was for drinks, cheese and meats. The group was small-8 so we were able to chat. Second stop was a bakery where we had one savory and one sweet treat! The tour ended with gelato. The guide spoke excellent English and was knowledgeable. The only thing missing was a list of the stops we made with the names of the foods we tasted. Well worth going!!!
    Great way to learn about Lucca
    Amy_S, Jul 2022
    Francesca was amazing. She knows so much about Lucca and its surrounding areas. It was a wonderful tour ! She was also sensitive that we had a senior on the tour and she checked in without being overbearing .
    Great experience with Antonella
    Patrick_M, Jul 2022
    Antonella is a very knowledged and pleasent guide who gave us a great experience during the guided tour in Lucca. With a good portion of Lucca's history as well as great food we had a great tour. We will really recommend this tour to all visitors of Lucca.
    Perfect Introduction to Lucca with Fabulous Guide
    Jeanne_S, Jul 2022
    This was a wonderful private walking tour of this gem of a city. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we enjoyed this tour so very much! Having a walking tour with a local is the best introduction to a city. We toured and learned things about this beautiful medieval walled city. We loved this tour!
    Great tour
