We saw Annie on a Rick Steves' segment on the small Tuscan town of Volterra. Googled her and found about 6 more videos. She has a love and a passion for Volterra and the region. Our short time together left us wanting more. Annie is one of the most knowledgeable and articulate guides we have met in the entire world. You will not be disappointed when you book with her. (We were fortunate enough to be with her on her birthday - Buon compleanno)
Annie is an excellent communicator - if a problem arises you can easily get in touch with her.
Volterra is not an easy place to get to, but it is well worth the effort to see and experience. This is Tuscany - like the Cinque Terra was before it was "discovered". See it before it changes.

Thank you so much for your immensely generous words. It was a true pleasure to spend time with you in Volterra, and a treat be with such lovely people on my birthday! I hope our paths will cross again.

Back from two weeks with a group of twelve...we had formal tours in Rome and Florence. But our favorite tour by far was Annie's tour of Volterra. (We skipped San Gimingnano and drove just a bit further to Volterra...a great move.) Volterra is a beutiful hilltop town that, as Annie explained so well and with passion, was an important city way back when. She walked us through town with so many stories of historical significance in a way which captured us all. She kept the pace slow to accommodate some older folk. The tour was topped of by a visit to a local alabaster carver, who gave us a demo - very interesting. Thanks, Annie, for a great day!

Our group of 15 had the most amazing tour with Annie and Tuscan Tours. This service was recommended by our B&B host and ended up being a major highlight of our trip.

Our tour included:
- Comfortable bus/van rides to and from our B&B
- A walking tour of Volterra
- Lunch and a wine tour of an excellent local winery
- A brief tour of San Gimignano and time to explore the city
- Tons of interesting history of Italy and the Etruscan civilization
- Great recommendations of other things to do while we were in the area

Annie was an amazing guide who is super passionate about what she does. She makes history fun and interesting (even on cold mornings when your whole group *may or may not* be totally hungover). She arranged an amazing luxury bus and a wonderful driver (Paolo) to safely ferry us from place to place. She also set up an amazing winery visit where we enjoyed a beautiful lunch, a tasty selection of wine, olive oil and a tour of a grape-to-bottle wine operation.

Tuscan Tours also offers a full day of wine tours if that is your group's preference. The owners are fluent in English and Italian and are super easy to communicate with from afar.

I highly recommend making this a part of your Tuscan adventure!

Annie was a guide extraordinaire!
She gave us the perfect introduction to Volterra. 3 hours went by so fast.
We loved her stories and all the "off the beaten track" places she showed us.
Highly recommend her!!
