Very authentic experience, so cool to see how the trained dogs operate as a team and locate beautiful, fresh truffles in the earth. Our guide was amazing and even brought along his young son who is in training to be the next generation of truffle hunters. We are the truffles later in our cooking class and they were delicious!

Hands down the best part of our trip. What a unique and unforgettable experience. Heather translated with whit and charm. Roberto and his son were so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their trade. Amazing to see the dogs at work - they found so many truffles!

I found this on my own and so glad I did. I have two sons (12,14) who love dogs and they had the time of their lives. The truffle hunter and his mom were charming and love their dogs. Heather provided the needed translation and once the dogs were off the leash we were off! We found probably 50 truffles in a little over an hour. My boys were very hands on, literally taking the truffles out of the dogs’ mouths. The truffle hunter was happy to have my boys involved and very nice to them. To me, this excursion was the best part of our 10 day trip to Italy!!

Did the truffle hunt with 3 of my family. Heather (the english speaking guide) greeted us at the meeting point and gave us an introduction to the process of locating the elusive truffle. Then we met Roberto, his wife and son plus the 3 amazing truffle hunting dogs, Mya, Bibo and Carmella. We headed off into the forest and after about 5 minutes one of the dogs had found a truffle by the side of the track! This was just the beginning of an amazing display of man and animals working together....truffle after truffle were discovered by the amazing discover the following 1 1/2 hours. We ended up with about 600 grams of the supposedly elusive fungi. We had a great day and would highly recommend the experience - it was one of the highlights of our Tuscan adventure.
