'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.

My sister and I went on Simon's slow day tour while we were in Florence a few weeks back. Simon is very knowledgeable about wine and the Tuscan countryside. We visited a quaint family owned vineyard where we watched olives being harvested and were treated to a lovely tasting by the father and son owners. Followed by a lovely lunch.... More

Simon picked the 4 of us up, precisely on schedule, in front of the National Library in Florence. Simon is a knowledgeable guide, English in origin and married to an Italian, and thus fluent (and might I add eloquent) in at least both of those languages.We headed out of town and stopped at several points for beautiful views of historic...

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 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
