A once-in-a-lifetime culinary adventure in Tuscany…

Escape the city and enjoy a day with nothing but hills and forests in view, on this unique truffle hunting experience in the beautiful Tuscan countryside.

As you follow the dogs in search of truffles, your guide will explain the history of truffle hunting in Tuscany. These delicacies can only be found in the wild, which makes it that much more exciting when you discover them! Luckily the trusty dogs leading your search are specially trained to detect truffles. So even if you don’t spot them yourself, the hounds will make sure you find enough truffles for your meal later.

After your hunt, you’ll enjoy a home-cooked meal at a cozy Tuscan ‘fattoria’ (farm). A tasting of cured meats, cheeses and marmalades will be followed by a homemade pasta dish cooked with the very truffles you found earlier.

And of course, we wouldn’t let you enjoy a Tuscan meal without local wines! Each course will be served with a selection of wines produced at the fattoria you’ll be dining in.

We’ve booked many food tours with this company in the past, and they never disappoint. That being said, this was the most fun we’ve had on any past tour. Our guide, Francesco was amazing, funny and informative. That combined with great location suggestions had us laughing, learning and eating great food all night. Highly, highly recommend to others!
