Roberto, Heather and their furry friends Bibo, Maia and Camilla brought us on an adventure through the woods that's one for the memory books. We received a whirlwind education about truffles, traipsed through the woods to find them, and came back with a decent loot! Besides Heather's excellent commentary, we loved seeing each dog display their unique hunting persona and yet work as part of a team, leveraging each other's strengths. Of course, none of this would've been possible without the watchful eye of and positive reinforcement from truffle maestro Roberto. A brilliant experience.

What a fabulous morning hunting truffles. This is the second time we have done this with with our two boys 7 & 9 years old. They love watching the dogs search for truffles while Heather told us all about how they grow and where they can be found. We even got to take one home for dinner. It is a great experience in the countryside watching the dogs having so much fun. It is very exciting to find so many delicious truffles.

I thought that I was “taking one for the team” when my husband asked me to go truffle hunting and it turned out to be one of our most favorite parts of our trip. We both loved it and want to do it again. Roberto, his mother and Heather were fun and interesting. The dogs were amazing.

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!
