It was just great! Went to the wooded area with the dogs and ran across the forest. The icing on the cake was finding 2 white truffles! It was super educational and just a lot of fun with the guide and his dogs!! Mega authentic and just perfect for us! We would book again straight away 😊

The tour is excellent. The place is beautiful. The staff is very friendly. Truffle hunting with dogs is very interesting. We were with children and they loved it. Lunch after the hunt is very filling, anyone who likes truffles will be in paradise. We highly recommend it!

Nikola was very knowledgeable and engaging. His dogs were hardworking and we found a huge white truffle. But even if we didn't find anything it was still a pleasant and novel experience.

Had the best day. Very good value for the amount we paid. Very good, friendly staff who made the journey. Wonderful places to stop and wander around. Highly recommend

It was very nice, good atmosphere, nice guides and the most important thing: dolphins! I recommend it to anyone!
