While looking through Trip Advisor, Wanda's name came up a couple of times and sent her a message. She was very communicative. Her wonderful personality... More

I read the excellent reviews in Trip Advisor and thought I would try this tour. So I emailed Wanda. She was responsive and helpful. Just enough information. She made it very easy. I was at a conference and didn't have the time or energy to do justice to visiting Lucca, and I only had one day to spare. I wanted... More

After spending only an afternoon in Lucca several years ago, we wanted to return for several days and really get to know this wonderful city. Wanda was very communicative prior to our visit. She answered all our questions and even recommended a restaurant and made sure it had reservations available over the holidays. She offered to meet us right at... More

We were lucky to have this tour with Wanda our first afternoon in Lucca- she is an amazing tour guide- warm and funny and ever so knowledgeable about Lucca and its history and people. Wanda took us around the city and showed us things we would never have been able to learn from a guide book- in addition to the... More

We never planned on visiting Lucca, Italy when we came to Pisa. However, we saw the opportunity to see Lucca when we read about this tour. It was only 30 minute train ride and the tour was fantastic. Wanda was the best tour guide as she answered all our questions. She was really terrific and knowledgeable as she is from... More

We recently visited Lucca while on a family holiday with our 2 teenage sons - I had heard it was an interesting place to visit but didn't know too much about it?! I managed to secure a tour with Wanda only 24hrs before we arrived and she was so quick to communicate and facilitate our tour. When we arrived we'd... More

Dear Karen and S, I explained in a separate note why this acknowledgement is so late. Last-minute decisions sometimes work quite well ! Your boys are brilliant, and that's a fact. I was lucky enough to have some very good teachers who knew how to motivate their students, so I'm simply giving back what I received. Congratulations on the parents,... More

A highlight of our recent trip to Italy was our tour of Lucca with Wanda. A native of Lucca, Wanda demonstrated deep and broad knowledge of the city, its people and history. She tailored the tour to our interests, which included an overview of the most important architectural and cultural sights, a wonderful lunch, and an afternoon vineyard tour and... More

My husband and I spent a whirlwind morning in a walking tour of Lucca with Wanda. She is delightful, knowledgable, and passionate about Lucca! Wanda introduced us to the unique religious, economic, and historical facts and sights of this charming Medieval city. Her tour was tailored to what interested us, and was excellent in all respects. I highly recommend Wanda's... More

Wanda Martinelli was a wonderful tour guide in Lucca for our group of 4. We planned the trip ahead of time and she was easy to schedule and helped organize our best driving route since we came from Tuscany, the Chianti region. I wish that we had booked more than the 2-3 hour tour and stayed the entire day in... More

Wanda Martinelli's information-packed tour is the very best way to start your vacation in Lucca. Wanda covers the history of Lucca, recommends shops and restaurants, answers questions fully and thoughtfully, and suggests activities you may be interested in as she gets to know you during the tour. My husband and I enjoyed our half day tour very much and strongly... More
