Testimonials

Elena is a Lucca native and in reality is one of the city’s greatest attractions! Her sparkling personality and intimate knowledge of Lucca make any tour with her unforgettable.

Paul Spadoni, Gig Harbor (Washington) USA

Elena is an amazing guide who knows how to blend a learning experience with having a good time. The cooking class that we participated in was awesome and made each one of us feel like a capable Italian chef. We are all very excited to test our skills back at home in our own kitchens. The tour of the vineyard was very scenic and interesting. As if this wasn’t enough for the fantastic price, we ended the day with a great meal and delicious wine tasting. Having the ability to taste seven different types of Tuscan wines with a classic Italian meal was an unbelievable experience none of us will ever forget. We highly recommend booking a tour and cooking lesson with Elena.
