The staff was very informative, friendly, and highly knowlegeble. The hunt was a beautiful walk through the Tuscany countryside. We loved the connection to local life this experience gave us. The lunch, with our found truffles, was indeed a highlight of our trip.

First off, this was one of three tours we did on our Italian vacation. Compared to the others, I'd rate this one, at 175Euro per person, as expensive. We opted for truffle hunting and wine tasting as we needed the transport from Florence. Ideally, I...More
