'Slow day in Tuscany'offered by Slow-Days® takes you to a family owned vineyard for wine tasting, a charming medieval hill town and full meal at a Tuscan Slow Food restaurant. Not so much a tour as a chance to meet the locals.

Simon picked us up promptly and we took off in the coolest retro VW van. It was our family of 4 and a single woman and we all meshed great! The weather was perfect and we enjoyed every spot on the tour. So many photo opportunities! The wine and food stops did not disappoint! Thanks for a memorable day!!!

Each turn was more beautiful then the next - Simon was a wonderful host and tour guide. A fantastic and authentic way to experience Tuscany - enjoying the local foods, wine and people. Shouldn't be missed ! Works out perfectly if you have a late flight - check out of your hotel and enjoy an amazing day and then head... More

We took my family and my wife's family on a tour, and it was simply one of the best experiences we had on our trip. Simon our guide was very knowledgable about Florence and the surrounding region, great personality and really gave the tour a personal touch. We visited a small winery in the morning called Altiero, perched on one... More

This was my favorite day in my trip to Italy. This is a must do. I had high expectations for this day and they were surpassed. Simon was a great guide. He is very personable and creates a relaxed day. He makes you feel like you are out with a friend for the day and not on a tour. The... More

This was such a good experience. One of my favorite parts of our trip. If you really want a feel for Italian history and culture, I would suggest doing it. We saw SO many small towns and areas that we would have never been able to see as tourists on our own. Simon did a great job of showing us... More

My family and I had the most wonderful time with Simon and Fernando. This is an excellent day if you want to relax, see the sights of Tuscany, sip some amazing wine and eat some delicious meals then this is a great "tour" for you. Simon was a great guide and Fernando is just the sweetest vineyard owner. We truly... More

My wife and I just spent a wonderful day with Manuela and Simon on a gorgeous November day in Tuscany. Manuela and Simon combined a perfect mix of cooking, eating, winetasting, and touring the beautiful countryside and historic villages. We were most fortunate to be the only couple in the class, so we had much time for fun interaction and... More

I arrived into Florence and decided at the last minute I wanted to do a day trip in Tuscany but I didn't want the large crowds or big towns. So this day trip was perfect and exceeded my expectations. Simon was a great host - very friendly, knowledgable and clearly passionate about wine and Tuscany. I felt like I learnt... More

Simon picks you up in Florence in an old VW bus. Eight people max. He then drives you out of town, narrating, chatting, and stopping for vistas and vineyards. The best part of his tour is the secret mountain town, with wine tasting and exploration of a small family-run vineyard. Then on to a sumptuous lunch in Greve with a... More

I would highly recommend taking a "Slow Day in Tuscany". I read a number of reviews that raved about this, so my expectations were quite high. And, I'd say they were exceeded! Simon picked us up (our group was six people) and he is a great guide. The smaller group was nice because we got a chance to get to... More
