The ride on the wall was great. The guide was very nice and knew a lot about the city and its history. Unfortunately it wasn't a classic food walking tour like I know from other tournaments where the focus is on food. You should know that. There was a sausage and cheese platter, an aperitif with a snack and ice cream. But everything was delicious.

We had a great tour with Marta who was so kind, friendly and interesting. We really enjoyed learning about Lucca and its culture. The cycle of the walls was great as was the visit to the vineyard with excellent lunch and tasting of wines. A wonderful tour.

We had a wonderful cooking experience. It was such much fun learning the Italian cooking style, even though we don’t speak proper Italian. The translator did a great job and we will remember this evening for our life. Thank you!

This excursion was wonderful. What a great introduction to evokes and to the city of Lucca. Our tour guide Lucca was nothing short of amazing. This is a MUST. Thank you Lucca

Had a great time on the bikes seeing Lucca. Highly recommend.
