Carlo is fantastic. What a great afternoon we spent with him. He is incredibly knowledgeable of Lucca as a long time resident, and a human encyclopedia of history and knowledge. His appreciation of art and his love of his city infuse the entire tour. Carlo begins by asking what you want to see and tailors the visit to meet your expectations. We are regular TBL customers and Carlo is one of the best we've ever had. He will make you love Lucca and you'll leave feeling a little jealous you can't stay!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for every single word of your comment. Too kind! Hope to see you again. Ciao Carlo

Carlo was awesome. He helped me with the payment the morning of the tour. It took a while because I was not able to do it the day before - technical problems with the website I guess. He told us the history of Lucca which we loved. He told us about the walls and how they were built to help against attacks. The churches are beautiful, towers. We learned about the silk trade and went to 1 of the 3 remaining shops that have a loom. We love Lucca and hope to return some day. The tour was great. Thanks, Carlo
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, I’m glad you enjoy the tour and the city of Lucca. Hope to see you here again! Ciao Carlo

Having Carlo as my tour guide was like strolling around Lucca with a good friend. I was able to feel the "soul" of Lucca as Carlo took me to all the various historical interests. The tour was well paced, with the right amount of pauses to take it all in, before moving on to the next point of interest. All information was conveyed in a conversational style that made it easy absorb, and remember! I came away from this tour very happy and excited about Lucca. Thank you Carlo!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rosalba, you are so kind! Ciao Carlo

Carlo loves his beautiful city and when you've enjoyed a morning walking around it with him (and you can set your own pace), chances are you will too!! His easy manner in sharing his amazing knowledge of Lucca - both historical and local - makes the city welcoming and alive.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elizabeth, you are so kind. It was a pleasure to know you and to show you my lovely city. Grazie mille! Carlo

Carlo gave us a fabulous tour of Lucca upon our arrival in Tuscany. My husband and our two small boys enjoyed the tour immensely and recommended Carlo and Lucca to many friends. If you are going to Tuscany, go to Lucca. If you are going to Lucca, take a tour with Carlo. You will not be disappointed!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! you are so kind. I'm glad that you and the kids enjoyed Lucca. Ciao Carlo

Carlo was diligent in setting up our meeting at the train station. He provided an excellent balance of information on the history of the town and modern town life. We stopped at a cafe in the Piazza Napoleone for coffee and a selection of local pastries, were introduced to the statue of Puccini and got the background on the town walls, the Roman amphitheatre and the wartime Resistance, finishing at a restaurant where Carlo got us the chef's recommendations on what we should have for lunch.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! Ciao Carlo
