Choco and her humans were very hospitable! Finding 6 truffles in the matter of minutes was a treat, but the real treat is the amazing lunch afterwards.

We followed Francesca and her truffle hunting dog, Chocko on a 1 mile hike and found 3 truffles. Chocko was the star of the show. Afterwards we were served an AMAZING 3 course meal featuring of course truffles. The setting is beautiful and well worth the time and fee.
Fun & delicious

Beautiful drive, lovely old farmhouse. Francesca was a wonderful guide. Even for the hottest day of the year we would do it again
Lovely way to spend a day

A lovely experience with Francesca and Choco. We found about 6-7 truffles, a porcupine quill, walked through her olive trees, and had a really delicious lunch and wine. It was very informative and fun - I would absolutely recommend this tour!
Amazing experience

Amazing experience to learn more about truffles! The farm is also in the countryside which was a really nice break from the city! :)
A great experience

Definitely a unique experience for any truffle lover. Despite rainy, muddy weather the tour was quite leisure for everyone except my 4 year old. Boots, ponchos, and umbrellas were provided for anyone who needed them. Francesca was so kind to my family and even let my daughter walk the dog at the end to motivate her to keep going. The lunch after was amazing.

Semplicemente stupendo, tutto. Choco é pazzesco e il pranzo é di una qualità eccellente. I taglioni al tartufo veramente buoni. Ottime anche le patate con il tartufo ed il resto resto dell'antipasto. Famiglia genuina e gentilissima. Siamo stati veramente bene. Consiglistissimo
Grossartiges Erlebnis
