I will say that I am completely dissatisfied with Taste, and Slow Italy's customer service. I have been lied to on several occasions regarding a 100% refund due to not being able to travel in one year from date of trip. I have been promised, and lied to on more than one occasion, and have called, and been promised calls back, and nothing. They have forced me to dispute the refund with my CC company, and I have provided all emails from them promising me my refund. I have given them every opportunity to be stand up, and nothing, but false promises. BE CAREFUL! This goes back to March of 2019, and I am still fighting it

We had a group of 9 people that recently came to visit Tuscany and Umbria. We reached out to Samuele from Taste and Slow Italy for advise on a few different activities and ended up going with a cooking class in Umbria. Samuele has lots of great ideas and contacts and we can't speak highly enough about our unique and fun experience at Tili Vini.

These guys are wonderful! Samuele was outstanding. He understood everything that we wanted and helped me put together a wonderful trip. In fact, he did all the planning after I explained my preferences, and he did so to perfection. We had tour guides perfectly coordinated, we stayed in Masserias that were incredible. All in all We were able to travel like the locals and enjoy with the locals which was a wonderful experience. Thank you so much Samuele. You made a wonderful anniversary be even more wonderful with the trip that you planned for us. Two thumbs up definitely!

Ciao! Many thanks for your compliments, we are honored of that!! You was one of the first travelers to benefit of our new "innovative experiment", or we should better to say a innovative project of our Company started at the end of 2018. The aim of the project is to improve our tours with local experiences with native culture. "With natives like a native". You are confirming that we are on the good track ! We cared particularly your experiences in Amalfi, Matera and Puglia. We really hope to have you as Guest again soon !!! Thank you so much Kind regards Stefania

My wife and I recently used this travel agency to set up a trip on the Amalfi coast. Overall our schedule included many good activities for a good value, but there were a few issues with our schedule that affected the trip. One thing in particular is that we were given incorrect information about bus transit time and routes. For example, there was a day when a non-existent bus route was listed in the itinerary and we almost missed our tour at Pompeii. When we asked the planner to help us arrange travel she told us just to work with our hotel to find transportation. We also did not have a lot of information about the tours we signed up for which we would’ve appreciated having. Prices for the trip were very reasonable, and the activities put together and dining recommendations were good. We recommend this tour group but you should research and double-check transportation and tour details yourself or arrange private transportation.

Many thanks go out to Lisa at Taste and Slow Italy! We just returned from a 12 day trip that started in the Cinque Terre and ended in Sorrento and my wife and I had a fabulous time! From our initial contact with Lisa from a friend's referral, she helped us plan our second trip to Italy while staying within our budget. The hotel recommendations in each town were all fantastic, and her suggestions for restaurants and other things to do were good as well. We stayed in 4 towns and actually visited 23 towns in 12 days, and everything went perfectly without a hitch. I would use Lisa again for another trip and will definitely recommend using Lisa at Taste and Slow Italy to others. PS - it was just my wife and I, but this review page would not permit me to select PAIRS on the type of trip.
