Annie took a group of 6 of us on a 2-hour walking tour of Volterra and every one of us enjoyed the experience and were glad we did it. Annie is American, so it was easy to communicate with her. She showed us sites, explained the history, and took us to an alabaster studio where we had a bowl made... More

I have had the extreme pleasure of accompanying my husband to Volterra on three occasions with the David McGuffin Exploring Europe tour company. The last two times, we were privileged to take a tour with Annie Adair. Our time spent with her was a definite highlight! Each time she provided us with wealth of new knowledge. She supplied lots of... More

After spending the day running along platforms and up and down steps to catch trains and hiking across train stations and airports looking for buses, all while carrying luggage - in a drizzle; we were dragging when we got to Volterra. Drug our luggage up the hill to the hotel; then it was time for the walking tour of the... More

Our guide, Andrew Kidd went the extra mile to show us the true "essence of Italy" on this tour with David McGuffin's company!! Highly recommended!!

Hi Donna, thanks so much for your kind words! Just for clarity for the readers, I want to mention that your trip guide, Andrew Kidd (who I hold in very high regard too), does not work for Tuscan Tour, but for David McGuffin's Exploring Europe, the company that brought your (wonderful) group to Volterra as part of the Italy trip...

Annie is the best tour guide! We could have never learned so many interesting facts about Volterra without her as our guide. She was one of the highlights of our trip! A "must do" when visiting Italy!

As a part of a small group tour of Italy, by David McGuffin's Exploring Europe, we stayed three nights in Volterra. Scheduled on the first afternoon was Annie's Walking Orientation Tour of the village. Annie is profoundly passionate about this Tuscan town and its 1000+ years history. As a teacher myself, I could not stop imagining her as the most... More

As one of the "paths-not-taken" in our lives for both Francesco and I was to join the teaching profession, we are immensely flattered and honored by your words. THANK YOU!! Annie Adair & Francesco Gronchi More

My wife an I have traveled quite a bit, and are all too familiar with both the large-as-possible-with-microphone group tours, and the individualized tour that is little more than a human reciting a recorded spiel while walking past monuments. Now that we have a 5 year old, it seemed unlikely that his attention span would last for either of these... More

Having spent a thoroughly enjoyable morning tour of Volterra with Annie, the female part of this husband-wife team, we signed up for an hour long class with her partner, Francesco Gronchi. Not only was Francesco every bit as charming as Annie, but the class, conducted at a local wine shop (Enoteca Scali) was an extremely useful introduction to the wines... More

Annie Adair was recommended as a wedding planner when planning our wedding in the wonderful town of Volterra in Tuscany. Over the past year she has proved to be a brilliant choice, going beyond the call of duty on several occasions to reassure us when we were concerned about changes to legal documentation (which proved to be rather complicated). Thus... More

Our family of 8 loved our afternoon with Annie! She knows so much about beautiful Volterra and totally made it come alive for us. She imparted the history in an animated story fashion that kept everyone enthralled including the teens and pre-teens. One child was astonished to know our walking tour time was almost over as it had flown by!... More
