Four of us spent 14 days driving in the hill towns of Tuscany and Umbria. We had seen Annie Adair on a Rick Steves show of Italy so we reached out to her for a private tour around Voltarra. We spent six hours with her followed by a two hour wine tasting with Francesco. This day with them was the highlight of our trip. It was pure fun (even when it was raining)! She has a wealth of knowledge, has excellent communication skills and her passion for what she does makes it even more enjoyable. She has been doing this for over 15 years and it shows. As they day progressed she was comfortable making changes in what we did as she learned more about what we had already experienced in Italy. We have a much clearer understanding of the role of the Etruscans when compared to the Romans. ​

My husband and I and two friends did an hour's walking tour with Annie in Volterra followed by a wine tasting with her husband Francesco. The walking tour was excellent value covering the highlights of Volterra from its Etruscan history to modern day. Annie is an excellent guide and is clearly passionate about the history of this beautiful town. The wine tasting with Francesco was equally good and we leant alot not only about Tuscan wines but the art of wine tasting. Francesco is also clearly very passionate and extremely knowledgeable about his subject matter and my only disappointment is that we could not have done a full day wine tasting with him. Both highly recommended.

I always try to persuade my visiting guests to take one of Tuscan Tours' wonderful tours of Volterra. I have accompanied them many times and always learn more each time. The tours are low key, fun, and informative--a great combination.

Annie and Francesco are amazing. We loved our tour of Volterra with Annie -- we were a group of 8, including 4 aged 16-21, and Annie brought the history of this amazing city alive for all of us. She is an excellent historian, and a fabulous storyteller. She's also utterly sensitive to the particular interests of her audience, and made sure to include an ice-cream stop and a visit to the remarkable alabaster atelier, as well as to the Etruscan and Roman sites. Then we had a wine-tasting with Francesco -- he's as wonderful a guide in the world of wine as Annie is in the city of Volterra. Witty, informative, generous and wise, Francesco introduced us to a variety of delicious regional wines. We can't recommend these guys highly enough!

We can't say enough about our tour with Annie. We were 14 and had 6 teenagers with us. Every second was filled with information, stories and fun. It was really the highlight of our trip. Volterra is a magical city made even more so by Annie's warmth and enthusiasm. We vowed to return and continue our journey thru her eyes. Ciao
