Our tour guide and sommelier, Hillary met us at the designated spot, and drove us in a modern air-conditioned van to San Miniato. She taught us so many things about Italy, Italian culture, and food. She was very happy to answer all of our questions. We got to our destination, an amazing villa, where we met Francesca, the owner, chef,... More

If you want a different Florence experience, you should definately take this tour. A very informative tour about truffles with first hunting for truffles and then eating an exceptional truffle lunch. Fabio, our guide was fabulous as he was knowlegeable about truffles and as a sommelier provided insight into Chianti wine. Great food and a great tour-who can ask for... More

We did the small group (about 9 people) truffle hunting and wine tasting. Our sommelier, Hilary, was excellent and told us many stories and Florence history as she picked us up from there and drove us to San Miniato. The truffle hunting was a lot of fun (if a little short), where we met Francesca in the family house (which... More

We booked the truffle hunting and chianti experience and our whole day was magnificent. Hilary, a master sommelier and our guide for the day was brilliantly charming, so knowledgeable and crazy funny. We laughed with her all day. Francesca and her truffle hunter dog, Choco, were great hosts and the (truffle-rich) meal produced for us in the grand house was... More

We booked the truffle & chianti tour from Florence. Our guide Hilary was fantastic, very funny and also very knowledgable. She's a master sommelier so her insight on the wine was second to none. At the farm we met Choco the lovely truffle dog, and as soon as we started off the hunt he immediately found a couple of truffles.... More

We did Truffle walking tour with Francesca with Choco leading the way. It was an amazing experience to hunt for truffles in the woods and have them served in a gourmet luncheon in a historic setting of 14th century manor house. We highly recommend this delightful experience! Thank you Francesca for excellent customer service when we made a mistake with... More

The trip was one of the best experience in our week of vacation in Florence. Thanks to Vittorio, who was responsive and promptly handled our last minutes request to join the tour on Aug 4. Vittorio was very knowledgeable about the Tuscany winery and truffle hunting activities. He introduced his partner, the truffle hunter (Francesca) and her lovely dog choco... More

We found Giulio as part of our Florence Tuk Tuk experience (see seperate review). Truffle hunting is a superb experience with Adda, a lagotto romagnolo hunting dog, one of the stars. She did manage to sneak one truffle whilst we were distracted but nevertheless we found several during the walk in the woods to take back to Giulios house to... More

Wow! Our experience with The Truffle Hunter conjures up nothing short of exquisite memories. It was truly the highlight of our trip. Upon our return back home, we could not stop raving to our friends and families about this experience - emphasizing the need to travel to Tuscany solely to dig into the lavish meal that that will be served...
