About Guide Turistiche La Giunchiglia Day Tours
La Giunchiglia came into being in Lucca in the early 1980s. It was set up by a group of young art history students who simply loved their home town and wanted to devote their future and make a career out of making its history and art better known organizing Walking tours of Lucca. Lucca was scarcely known on the tourist track at that time and opportunities for having the pleasure of showing it to visitors were few, so many of us were soon forced to turn to other cultural activities and ended up acting as tour guides as a hobby. We increased our knowledge of Lucca and the surrounding area by going to different courses and finding out more and more about our history, art, archaeology, botany, traditions and the things that are produced here, such as wine and extra virgin olive oil. We tried to focus on everything that would enhance the quality of our tours, and to promote Lucca through the Web. In the last few years, La Giunchiglia introduced all the other Tuscan provinces: Florence, Siena, Pisa, Arezzo, Grosseto, Livorno, Massa Carrara, Pistoia and Prato. We are able to create customized tours in every of these historical sites or help you in creating the perfect tour for you and you family, or for your group. Ours ...is a passion that became the best job we could possibly have in our beloved land, Tuscany and we want to share it with everyone who comes to visit!

Even though it was pouring rain the day of our tour we had a great time! We went both to a winery and then toured Lucca. We could not ride bikes because of the rain but we were still able to climb the wall and go through the streets and squares. Giovanni, our driver, was wonderful and Tiziano was amazing.

We had an excellent experience in Lucca! Our tour guide, Claudia, was wonderful. She agreed to do our tour a day early to take advantage of good weather and avoid rain on our scheduled day. She provided great info about Lucca and had a very pleasant demeanor. Ida was excellent to deal with by email prior to our visit to book the best tour for us. I highly recommend this company and in particular, this tour! Thanks!

I have been to Lucca several times before a recent trip my wife and I took. I learned so much more about this quaint, historically significant town than I had on any previous trips (and in reading various tour guides, other literature on the town) during Eleanor's captivating tour. I highly recommend Eleanor and this tour to truly experience the rich historical tapestry that is contained within Lucca's walls, and for all sorts of insight on the great gelato, food, and other curiosities within those walls.
