You”ll spend a day in the company of real Italians, fully immersing yourself into true Italian culture. Guided by one of the local Chiacchiarini family on their farm we take to the beautiful Umbrian countryside in search of any number of traditional ‘wild’ delicacies, whatever’s in abundance depending on the season. When we have enough for lunch -truffles, mushrooms, wild asparagus - it's back to the farmhouse for a cooking lesson and a big traditional lunch with the family and local friends and loads of fantastic Montefalco wine. « less

This was such a memorable experience. Francesca and Mac and their family were so generous. This was the best day of our trip.

We loved the day tour with Mac and his family. We started with a drive up into the mountains while Mac told us about the region, truffle hunting and olive oil making. We then met with Luca who took us hunting for truffles with his three dogs. It was a wonderful walk through the countryside and it was very interesting... More

What an absolutely wonderful day!! It is as it says "you immerse yourself in traditional Italian culture and cuisine" - Mac and his wife Francesca are great hosts in a very relaxed and friendly environment, along with a lot of fun. Mac picked us up from the square in Spello about 10.00 am and took us high into the hills... More

We were so very lucky to have found Wild Foods Gastronomical Adventure, and have the opportunity to spend the day with Francesca, Mac and their wonderful family. We knew from the moment we arrived that we were in for a special treat, and the day was even more spectacular than we could have imagined. Searching for truffles in the beautiful... More

Wow. This was such an amazing day. Beautiful scenery, truffle hunting, making pasta, fabulous food - all of that alone made it worth it. But what made it just so special were Mac, Francesca and the family themselves. So genuine, down to earth and welcoming. It felt like being invited into a family day, not a tour. One of those...

We felt very privileged to have had this wonderful day with Franesca and Mac and their family. We had been recommended Wild Foods by friends at home and it truly was one of those very special days. From the minute Mac collected us and our friend from our apartment in Montefalco we knew we were in for a wonderful day.... More

This experience was simply fantastic. A New Zealand host with an Italian wife and in-laws, Australians on tour for 8 weeks and an American family and us, South Africans. What a day, what hosts and what company! Everything you read about this day is true, but much more. Having a freshly "hunted" truffle on your breakfast, complimented by locally made... More

My husband and I booked this trip before leaving for Italy and we were so pleased that we did as it was the highlight of our 5 weeks in Italy. We were picked up from our accommodation in Montefalco and taken to the family home around 40 mins drive away. Fabulous day of truffle hunting, making pasta with nona, drinking... More

My husband and I have been holidaying in Italy for eight weeks and undoubtedly this would have to be the highlight of the trip. The whole experience is unforgettable. The bonus was being collected by Mac from our base in Todi, which meant we were able to enjoy the generous wine on offer. The truffle hunting was great, followed by... More
