Certainly it was our guide. So free with information and her experience, very personable. A winemaker herself, we found this aspect of the tour invaluable and we wished more wine had been included in order to learn from her!

Food journey with Valentina
Judith_E, Jan 2024
We had a phenomenal day with Valentina! She was so knowledgeable and patient with our large group of 10. We toured the city, stopped for photos and enjoyed all 6 places on the circuit. You will not be disappointed!
This tour included food, history, and current events.

Giula was an excellent tour guide. Her knowledge of history and the region were exceptional. She made it so much more than a simple food tour. However, the foods were not a second thought. The restaurant and food choices were well choreographed.
A good introduction to Lucchesse specialities
Penelope_T, Sep 2023
A good way to get to know the city at the beginning of our stay. Valentina was a friendly and knowledgeable guide. The only problem is too much food! But we were able to take home what we could not manage. All interesting and tasty for us.
It was a wonderful opportunity for the four of us 70 year olds to learn about the food and Lucca.
Doris_N, Sep 2023
This was our first time in Lucca and the food tour with Valentina not only introduced us to fun foods like chickpea crust pizza, but also introduced us to the beautiful little town!
Food Tour. Excellent.
Denise_B, Sep 2023
Our tour was excellent. Clear directions on meeting our host Valentina. Valentina was lovely. On short notice she adjusted the menu to support one of our our guest who was a vegetarian. She explained significant land marks on our food tour. The food was excellent. You do not have to eat dinner after this tour. Highly recommend.
Fun and food!

Sacha was amazing! It felt like spending a day in Lucca with a good friend showing us all the things she loves about the town. We laughed and talked and enjoyed a gorgeous summer day in an incredible city. I loved the way it was structured, beginning with antipasti and ending with dessert
Great Food and a Fun Tour of Lucca
Alyson_J, May 2023
This was a fun tour with fabulous food. The guide was helpful and the portions were generous. What a wonderful way to learn about a place - through the food! My friend is vegetarian and they provided several options which was great. You will not leave hungry! Highly recommmend this tour.
Amazing food tour
Shannon_C, Apr 2023
This was a perfect few hours in Lucca. Sacha is an amazing guide. She is so friendly and energetic, it felt as with we were touring around with an old friend. We brought our two small kids and she was so accommodating and inclusive to them. The food is plentiful and delicious and we will recommend this tour to all of our friends traveling!
Sasha a shinning guide to our Tuscan trip!
