    Great truffle hunt
    Fantastic afternoon truffle hunting with Nikola. We were very lucky that he was able to fit us in along our drive from Zagreb to Rovinj and we had the best time watching him and his dogs do their thing. Nikola is friendly, knowledgeable in his trade, and his dogs are so friendly. They all gave an extremely interesting and memorable tour! We also got some fantastic local recommendations, which ended with us eating the best pasta we've ever had!

    Unique experience
    Awesome experience. Nikola was funny, informative, and shared lots of interesting tips that you would only learn from a real professional who hunts truffles rain, cold, or in the heat. We also learned about the dogs and how they are trained(super cool animals). Very unique experience!

    Unique experience specific to Croatia
    My partner and I just had this experience today and I can’t say enough how glad we were to be able to learn and be apart of something so unique and specific to Croatia. We had an awesome guide who taught us and showed us the process of truffle hunting. Afterwards we were served a delicious truffle themed lunch with wine. I highly recommend this excursion!

    Amazing experience
    One of the best tours that I’ve ever had in my life. Been with my three kids here for 5 days, this was the best experience that I’ll always remember. Nikola is a great person, taking time to explain everything. Sara and Mala, his two dogs, were so cute, my kids who fear dogs didn’t want to leave and forced me to buy them a dog. We found a few truffles and later cooked them. It was so nice to experience this. 1000 thanks, we’ll recommend this tour to all our friends. Stay blessed

    Truffle hunting success!
    Nikola and his dogs helped us uncover two truffles today out hunting: one white and one black truffle. When we got back to the bed and breakfast, we used their pot to melt down butter and then shave the black truffle into the butter so we’ll have truffle butter to spread on our bread for the rest of our Croatia trip. And tomorrow’s egg breakfast will be layered with the white truffle! Our walk in the woods with the dogs was enjoyable and educational. A fun experience.

We had a very pleasant walk in the woods with Nicola and his three dogs. He explained everything to us, and was very clear to us that he couldn’t guarantee that we would find truffles but we were going to try. Highly recommand this tour.

Super interesting hunt through the woods for truffles, with two fun dogs. In the summer, I recommend asking Nikolai for some mosquito repellant, which he keeps in the car.

We had a great time exploring the forest and hunting for truffles with Nikola and his dogs. We were there in the "in-between" season but his dogs still found us some small truffles - enough to flavor our morning eggs. :) He used the off -season opportunity to work on training his newest dog- a five month old hyper - energetic puppy that kept us laughing. Nikola was personable with a great sense of humor and he went out of his way to connect us with some local mushrooms knowledge and make a lunch reservation for us at an excellent rural restaurant. An all around great day!
