Dear Deidre, I am so glad you liked the tour and thanks for the nice definition you gave me "lovely". It's always gratifying to know that people appreciate what you do as it is not easy to "transmit knowledge" without seeming too "know-it-all". I hope I did my best to inform and entertain you at the same time. So, come... More

We signed up for an English/Italian language walking tour of Lucca at the Tourist Info office in the Piazza Donnato inside the west gate of Lucca. The tour last two hours, our tour guide Roberta was exceptional! We had been in Lucca for two days, but she showed us things that we would never have discovered on our own.

Dear Steve, Thanks a lot for you review.

I just walked into the tourist office near the train station to look for a map of Lucca and ended up booking this two hour tour at 2 pm. It was the best decision. Roberta our tour guide was knowledgeable and wonderful. She gave us so much information on all the historic, social and political parts of Lucca. She also... More

Our Bologna-based travel agent arranged for Gabriele Calabrese to be our guide in Pisa and Lucca. My husband and I and the other couple we travel with have taken tours with many guides, and Gabriele is in a class by himself. Besides being bright and extremely knowledgeable and speaking perfect English, he is a master story teller. Gabriele sets the... More

Did the tour with Roberta who presented the tour in Italian and English in a seamless manner. Her knowledge of Lucca is shared during the 2 plus hours and the hidden stories of the history are what makes this tour great. Both languages given good coverage and all questions answered.

Dear Adelaide, I thank you for what you wrote. Your comment ".....hidden stories of the history are what makes this tour great" is exactly what I want to transmit "my Look at Lucca Visitor", and the "sense of Hidden" I retain is the key to involve people into the discovery of Lucca. I'm glad you liked the tour and I... More

This is an excellent tour. Roberta, our guide, was extremely knowledgable and was clearly passionate about the history of her town. She delved into social and political history besides the magnificent architecture of Lucca. We had a full 2 1/2 hours, great value!
