    A really useful tour of lucca
    Steve_B, Apr 2024
    Lucia gave a well informed, knowledgeable and friendly tour of Lucca. We were part of a group of ten, which seemed the prefect number. Lucia, took time to answer our questions and didn’t overload us with facts. We learnt plenty but Lucia kept the group moving at a rate which kept the tour interesting. I would highly recommend both Lucia and the tour for those wanting to know a bit more about the streets they’re walking along.
    Worth considering this tour

    Our guide Chiara was very knowlegable and able to answer questions on Italian history which helped put the town tour part into perspective. The electric bikes were clean and well presented and Chiara was very good at pacing the tour for us knowing we were not that famiiar with the town geography and surrounding area. It was nice to visit a small independent wine producer who was doing it for the love of it
    Great way to discover the hidden gems of Lucca

    Georgio was an informed and engaging tour guide. He shared many different sights on our walking tour of Lucca with an appropriate level of detail.
    It was nice short...
    Thomas_B, Apr 2024
    It was nice short afternoon tour, very informative , our tour guide was super , the tour gave me a good understandings of the town and history. We ended at the Cathedral were she offered to go in (we had to pay a few euros to go inside) explain some of the art and holy relics. We were the only ones in the group that continued in. It was worth the cost of the tickets and we had a private guide. (sorry I do not remember our tour guides name)
    Interesting tour

    The guide Lucia was very good at explaining the city of Lucca and its monuments. The guide was brilliant and engaging
    Do this tour!
    Mitchell_D, Jan 2024
    This tour was absolutely amazing. We booked it just moments after we landed in Lucca from Pisa with 30 minutes before it started. We were the only two English speaking tourists with the group. Roberta, our guide, had to do the tour in both Italian and English. She was amazing and the Italian speakers were so gracious in allowing us the time to learn about Lucca. Roberta was so knowledgeable. You'd be lucky to get her as your guide. Lucca is an amazing little city with so much history. Well worth the trip and the walk about. Thank you Roberta and the people of Italy, you made our trip!
    Lots of information

    Loved Lucca so much. Met a wonderful couple and they invited me for tea and desert. This was great as I was traveling alone. The guide was doing the tour in Spanish and English. Which was interesting.
    Elsie_G, Nov 2023
    The tour was done in both english and italian by the same guide, who has a very good level of english. I appreciated that the tour guide was a local.
    We learned a lot about Lucca!
    Lisa_M, Nov 2023
    Nadia had such interesting stories to tell about the history of Lucca, as well as its legends. We learned so much.
    Excellent walking tour
    Simon_C, Oct 2023
    The guide was very knowledgeable and professional, we had already walked around Lucca on our own in the morning, but the guide really brought it alive, explaining the history of the town and its buildings.
    Stuart_B, Oct 2023
    The guide was knowledgeable, kept a good pace and very accommodating especially as it was raining very heavily
    Relaxing, Informative & Enjoyable

    The tour guide’s compassion and assistance in being extra attentive to two elderly participants who advised her of their hearing challenges. Genuine compassion is a value beyond measure.
    Worth doing
    Michael_H, Oct 2023
    Very good tour. Lots of interesting information, in clear English. Nice guy. Better than a guide book.

    Guide Gabriel was superb- interesting, knowledgeable and entertaining. Guided our group expertly and we saw many interesting sights and enjoyed immensely his stories about them.
    Great tour with Luchesa
    Neil_C, Sep 2023
    Fun talk with stories and humour. Very well rounded. Only complaint is that the meeting point on Google maps is 170m from the actual point at Tourist Information
    Highly recommended
    Matthew_S, Sep 2023
    Really good tour of the ancient city of Lucca with friendly, knowledgeable tour guide Vittoria. Good value & much better than walking around trying to work it out by yourself.
    Great Walking Tour!
    Eugene_P, Sep 2023
    Our walking tour guide, Vittoria, was very friendly and knowledgeable! She provided us many interesting pieces of information about Lucca and its history.
    Great Introduction to Lucca
    Mark_K, Sep 2023
    This is an easy and inexpensive introduction to Lucca. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the city, and conveyed information to the group in a fun yet thorough manner. There was a fair amount of walking, but it was mostly flat and easy. The two hours flew by. Definitely giving this one two thumbs up.
    Great Value
    Monica_R, Sep 2023
    Great way to learn about history of this town. Our guide, Roberta, was knowledgable and entertaining. Her English was wonderful and she took extra time with us at the end to review the story of Nicodemus.
