Annie and her husband were the perfect guides for experiencing Volterra and learning more about the Etruscan period - I learned more on this tour than I did anywhere else in all of Italy, (with the exception of the Vatican)! Annie's passion and knowledge for this city are unmatched - she's an absolute gem! Her husband is a sommelier, and... More

Annie Adair gives an enjoyable, informative, and stimulating tour of some of the highlights of historical Volterra. As a history buff with a fair knowledge of Italian history back to Etruscan times, I was very impressed by how much she knows about the history--she's a real treasure, full of engaging historical stories and trivia about the area. For example, I... More

We really enjoyed this short walking tour. The incredibly rich history of beautiful Volterra is nicely laid out by our guide Annie Adair. She has other guides that conduct her tours, but it was nice to have Annie. I love Italian history and it was really fascinating, and a good bargain. Be prepared to climb a few of Volterras steep...

Definitely recommend taking this tour. We went with tourguide Claudia and discovered the Etruscan city of Volterra through her eyes. Great sights, great history and great tourguide. Also nice to be in a small tour; even with only 4 people the tour was on and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Even got nice dinner recommendations in the end.

We took the tour on May 2nd, it was raining like crazy, and still our wonderful tour guide (unfortunately I am not completely sure what was her name) showed up on time and gave us a great tour of the city. Do not miss this opportunity to learn about the history and main sites of this city from a charming... More

We just returned to our apartment at Podere San Lorenzo after going on a wonderful walking tour of Volterra. Our tour guide Annie did an amazing job keeping our whole family (2 adults and 3 children aged 3, 9 and 12) interested. We had considered taking a self-guided tour of this charming village but are glad we did not. It... More

Dear Land-air-c, please accept my sincere apologies about my no-show for the walking tour this past Sunday. In the late afternoon I was dealing with a serious personal emergency and was simply unable to come and unable to find someone to substitute me at such late notice. As a guide, my worst nightmare is a situation such as this, and... More

Knowledgeable, personable, and enthusiastic Annie Adair presented Volterra to us and made us fall in love with her Italian home. The history of the Etruscans came alive through Annie's spiel which encouraged us to delve deeper via the Etruscan Museum. We marveled with her at the stone theater uncovered in the 1950's and understood the significance in the circle of... More

Annie Adair gave us a personalized and fun tour of Volterra, inspiring a new-found love of Etruscan culture! with Annie, and learned far more than we expected. Annie's style is very approachable, and delivered with a real enchanting delivery. We will definitely return to Volterra, and would like to tour with Annie in another location, as well! Job well done!!!

A wonderful introduction to the town and its history, this walking tour with Annie Adair was full of information and interesting stories as she took us the Arch, the amphitheater and other sites through the city. Highly recommended.
