What people are saying about Province of Lucca

The guide, Massimo, was very knowledgable and provided information of the area and countryside as we drove to the vineyard. At the vineyard we were treated to a tour around some of the vines before entering the main building to view the wine making cellars and equipment including the huge vat’s of wine. At the wine tasting we were provided with four wines to taste each increasing in age and complexity. Massimo showed some of us newbie’s the techniques for tasting and appreciating the wine. Afterwards we had the opportunity to buy some bottles (or cases) to take with us or to have shipped home.

Great trip. Bikes worked beautifully on the hills near Lucca. The guide Rafael did a tremendous job with facts about the city and at the local winery. Francesco at the winery provided alot of history on his family winery and the wine was exceptional. We bought several bottles that we could enjoy on the remained of our trip in both Lucca and Venice. Highly recommend this tour to everyone!

This was the best wine tour ever! The experience was just brilliant, and the guide Adrian and Diana was very passionate about their work. The explained everything in good detail and made the trip very entertaining and memorable for us. We highly recommend them and will definitely book them again! Loved it! Will miss it! Bravo bravo bravo!

Excellent trip. Guide was great. Travellers who are late back to the meeting point by 15 minutes should be left behind. Pisa and Lucca were both great

Our driver, Pedericio, was the warmest, kindest, most knowledgeable person. We feel blessed to have met him.
