If you are in Lucca: hire the best guide Silvia. She knows it all, history, nice places, good wine/food. Very nice tour, very good English, humor, and adapts to your wishes. We had been 10 times in Lucca before, be she gave an extra to it this extraordinary time (Covid).

We had Silvia organize a tour to Pisa after our morning Gourmet tour with her. She also arranged pick up service from the cruise terminal in Livorno, and return. Pace of walking tour in Lucca was appropriate, but the gourmet part didn't quite live up to my expectation, as it was at the end of the tour where Silvia left us in the hands of a store owner, who also happened to have another (large ) group of twenty people to serve, where his attention was diverted to. The space was quite tight and we were not given enough info on what we were being introduced to ( food ). There was also a bit of lack of clarity when it came to pricing discussion during our email correspondence, largely due to all those additional costs involving other agents like tour guide in pisa, and the transportation company . At the end of the day, the walking tour itself was of very high quality, as Silvia showed her knowledge and ability to educate us on the history of this part of Italy. She also took us to a shop ( upon our request ),on a side street ,selling leather goods that we quite like.

We were thrilled with our decision to book a tour with Silvia. My family and I (sadly) had only one night in Lucca and really wanted to make the most of it. We booked a 10am combo biking/walking tour that was wonderful! Silvia is so friendly, engaging, and extremely knowledgeable about her city. We went through the main squares, small winding streets with shops, visited Puccini’s house, up on the city walls, and even down below inside the walls where they have amazing art installations. I know we never would've seen as much if we had explored on our own. If you haven’t decided yet whether to go to Lucca or not, GO! I visited 7 or 8 places in Northern Italy last month and Lucca was my favorite. It’s absolutely charming, beautiful, historical feeling but very vibrant at the same time. They also have an incredible summer concert series, Elton John played there in July! Thank you Silvia, hope to visit Lucca again next year!

We are a group of 6, grandparents, parents and two teenage girls. We wanted to do something a bit different and decided on the bike tour with Silvia - we are so glad we did! Silvia was great! She was very focused on making sure she kept everyone (the kids) engaged and interested. She was accommodating for the two seniors in our group and also started our tour a little ealier so we could avoid the heat of the afternoon. Lucca is a very interesting little town with a unique history that we enjoyed learning about from Silvia. We got great instructions on where to park outside the gate and met Silvia just inside the wall at the bike rental shop. We really enjoyed our time in Lucca with Silvia!

We booked a tour with Silvia, before we arrived in this wonderful part of Italy. Silvia was great, she gave us a good understanding of the history of Lucca, and gave us a couple of great recommendations of local restaurants.Silvia speaks perfect English as well.
