Yes, she is. If you want to enjoy Lucca, take in its glory and its lovely quirks, find time on Wanda's schedule. She met us at the train station. From there we walked the short walk, at our pace, inside the wall of this ancient city. We learned many interesting historical facts, met a very posh gentleman, along with several... More

We highly recommend Wanda as a tour guide in Luca. she managed to cover the history of Lucca, the all the main attractions as well as some not so well known areas and information. when she says she covers the spirit of Lucca, it is because she is passionate about the history and culture of Lucca and shares that in...

We booked a half day tour of Lucca with Wanda. One week before our trip, we found out that Lucca would be closed to all visitors for 2 days during the G7 Summit. Wanda was fabulous to re-work her schedule and accompany us on a visit north to the devil's bridge and Barga. She is delightful, informative and kept my... More

Dear Julie, YOU were delightful, understanding and cooperative. Stupid G7. You had warned me about the short attention span your sons would show, but they actually behaved better than some adults and I truly enjoyed spending time with them. And you. Lucca from a to z next time. R&P will love it, I'm sure. Thank you. With all best wishes.... More

Dear Gianni, my congratulations on your family. Your children are simply brilliant. I'm sure they will become responsible and sensitive adults. I loved your expression "connecting the dots". Lucca is super pretty but not an easy place to get the hang of. I'm sure we'll meet again sometime. Coffee on me next time. It's a promise. With best wishes to... 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.

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.

Dear S & A, as I often say, Lucca is addictive. Indeed, the perfect location to celebrate a special birthday.
