Slow Travel Tours is an informal affiliation of small-group tour operators who offer personalized trips in Italy, France and other European countries. This is our blog where we will provide information on the places we visit, our beliefs about traveling in a “slow” way, and helpful information on travel itself.
As a group:
- We share a passion for special places in Europe, places that have stirred something deep inside ourselves, places we enjoy sharing with people who are seeking a different kind of tour.
- We share a common philosophy about travel. We believe in traveling more slowly and seeing what’s around you, immersing yourself in the local landscape, the history and culture, the food and the wine, and the people.
- We believe a small group enhances the quality of that experience, and we enjoy the camaraderie with like-minded travelers. The people who join our groups become our friends.
- We love what we do and where we do it. These are small part-time businesses, and we all manage and lead our trips ourselves, often involving local friends with our groups.
Some of us live in Europe; others visit several times a year. We’re not just in the travel business – we’re travelers too! Join us!
