Please read A Unique "Tuscan Experience" submitted by Kerry S, Oct 22 2011. I couldn't have said it better. We had a wonderful time last November on a trip to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. In spite of the scarcity of good sized black truffles, Giulio's enthusiasm and teaching coupled with Christina's delicious Tuscan cooking, made this a fabulous experience.... More

We had a great time with Vittorio and Giulio. Gulio took us out with Eta the amazing truffle hunting dog. We had a great time walking in the woods and learning about truffle hunting. The food was wonderful too.

Please do not visit Tuscany or Florence without doing this truffle experience with Guillio and Edda. My wife and I wanted to do something a little different to walking through churches and museums all day and this was the perfect escape. In the hills south of Florence your hosts Gullio and Cristina have a beautiful tuscan villa set amongst the... More

It was a very good weather in Oct for truffle hunting. Early morning they picked us up at Florence's hotel and went to the truffle hunting site by around 1 hour travel time. The truffle hunter had already waited for us, with his naughty dog. The dog has found out 4 white truffles in around 30 mins, and played at... More

what a great time! this.is certainly the most Florence- esque activity you can do. if you are a foodie and love truffles, you have to go out truffle hunting with Guilio and Eda, his adorable truffle hunting dog. the scenery was beautiful, it did start out a little rainy, but I would do this in a blizzard to go out...

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending the day with Giulio Benuzzi, aka the Truffle Hunter, just last week. While the weather did not cooperate, it rained most of the day, we still were able to go truffle hunting. It was the best experience we had in what was an incredible vacation. Giulio is extremely knowledgeable about truffles... More

This is my first time writing a review on tripadvisor which is a testimony to how memorable this experience was. Despite the drizzly weather, we had a great time seeing how truffles are sniffed out and unearthed. Even better was to follow when we had a fantastic truffle lunch accompanied by great wine at an enchanting villa. Definitely recommended!!!

My daughter Sarah and I had a fantastic time with Giulio, his truffle hunting dog Eda, and Cristina. Giulio is very engaging person, and it was very enjoyable learning about truffle hunting and experiencing it with him (and, of course, Eda!). After a successful hunt, we returned to their beautiful home and Giulio showed us how to clean the truffles,... More

For our trip to Italy my husband and I wanted to explore Italy by not only going to the typical tourist attractions. We love truffles and I found Giulio's site offering a truffle hunting experience in the outskirts of Florence and loved the idea. Booking the excursion was super easy via email and it's about 15-20minutes from Florence. You get... More

As part of a family reunion trip in Florence, my cousin organized a truffle hunting tour for a group of 6 of us. We did not know what to expect going into the day - but our truffle hunting experience with Giulio turned out to be one of the highlights of our Italy trip!!! Giulio, his wife Cristina and their...
