5 star ratingExcellent tour of the Langhe. Claudia from Slowdays organised a week in Piemonte for my wife and myself during the truffle festival. She was most responsive to all our email requests and our various changes. We spent 2 months in Italy but Claudia helped make Piemonte a destination we will return to. A highlight was the truffle hunt with Charlie and his dog. It was an awesome morning trekking the hazelnut trees to watch him dig for truffles, a most engaging fellow. Claudia also organised all our accommodation, restaurants and drivers and everything went without a hitch. Our driver and guide for 2 days Gabrielle and he was absolutely amazing. We visited several wineries chosen by Claudia in the Barolo and Barbareso and they were the most passionate wine makers in most places that I've encountered. The lunches were great and because we most wineries and lunches were just the 2 of us. I cannot recommend Slowdays enough. It was organised exactly as we wanted it, tailored absolutely to us. Claudia also changed a departure time for us at short notice on a Sunday and that is service that you rarely receive any where. In conclusion, if you want a private guided tour from singles to groups of family or friends then this is the company to use. Claudia really did amaze me.

Wedding Anniversary in Alba Claudia went out of her way to organize the ebike tour for my husband and I even though she was "closed" for logistics matters. It was a fantastic and breath taking experience cycling through the rolling hills of Langhe through La Morra and Barolo. The biking guide was friendly, attentive and made sure that we were "safe" every bit of the way. We also signed up for the truffle hunting tour. The truffle hunter was so passionate about his work. His dog Gigio even found a white and black truffle for us that day. Thanks to Claudia and her team, my husband and I enjoyed ourselves tremendously.

Why choose this Tour of the Giant Benches in the Langhe on a Vespa?

Welcome to the world of SlowDays! Even with a Vespa Bench Tour, you’ll have time to enjoy your day. As a backdrop, the hills of the Langhe and, as a reward, the discovery of the fascinating Big Benches, which you will find scattered throughout this remarkable area. Exploring the Langhe in this way and, thanks to our map, discovering a series of Big Benches during the tour will make you realize that you have chosen a unique Tour!

What is the duration of the Giant Benches Tour?

The tour typically lasts 6-7 hours. We can arrange the departure time, between 9:30 and 11 a.m., according to your needs, and it will end at 6 p.m. with the return of the Vespa. During the day, you will have tasting stops if provided in your formula.

How can I book the tour?

You can book the tour through our form: write me the date and the number of friends you will be. We will take care of the rest. After booking, you will receive a program with all the directions, the APP, and its map to download.

A Tour of the giant benches on a Vespa and in the Langhe!


We built this Langhe Giant Benches Tour because Big Benches have almost become a Langhe symbol. However, they are now widespread throughout Piedmont and many other regions.

If you feel like learning more, you can read this article I had written just about the Langhe Giant Benches.

I’ll be waiting for you for the most colorful hunt ever!

“Sorpresa super riuscita!
Il mio fidanzato non se l’aspettava ed é rimasto piacevolmente sorpreso. Claudia mi ha aiutata ad organizzare il tutto e ci ha fatto scoprire piccole chicche delle Langhe.
Esperienza da rifare assolutamente”
