This was a really fun way to spend a few hours, walking through the forest, learning about truffles, and watching the dogs work. We enjoyed the time, and it was a perfect way to understand how the world famous truffles are found. My children loved walking through the forest after the dogs and watching them dig for truffles.

We had a wonderful Day with Mihael and his lovely dogs. Mihael showed and told us a lot about truffle hunting and could answer all our questions, it was very interesting. We even found some Black and small pieces of white truffles. After the hunt we had a super delicious Lunch made by his mother on their terrace on top of Motovun with a very nice view. Almost everything of the meal was grown and made by the Family or Produced localy. The hunt and the meal was in a small Group with very nice people :).

Best day ever - Michael picked us up and took us into the countryside with his 3 gorgeous dogs. He was very informative and explained truffle hunting very well. The dogs were well trained and found truffles for us. Afterward Michael took us back to his home where his Mother had prepared the best meal we have had so far in Croatia. Each dish was prepared with Truffles and served with local wines and Lorena’s special grappa. The setting was divine - an outdoor terrace under the vines and overlooking the beautiful istrian countryside. We loved it so much we decided to stay the night and enjoy Motovun.

This was the highlight of our one week vacation around Rovinj. Me and my 2 friends had the pleasure to join Michael and his 3 lovely dogs. This is a super original activity to do. The activity starts in the morning with some truffle hunting. The dogs are very skilled and friendly. I loved Mina (the youngest dog that was in training). After the truffle hunting we were taken at the super beautiful town of Motovun at the family house of Michael and had lunch at their picturesque garden. The dishes were delicious and contained a significant amount of truffle. We were amazed of how original our day was. The lovely family of Michael made us feel very welcome and enhanced the experience to the fullest. They are wonderful hosts! We will return next year for sure.

Truffle hunting with Mihael and his 3 dogs exceeded our expectations. Mihael was a joy, and very informative. He made the adventure incredibly fun. The best surprise was lunch with his mother. On the side of the hill in Motovun, in their house, his mother had set a beautiful table, then proceeded to serve a three course meal, with each dish made from black truffles. Many times, travel is about stories and memories, with with this adventure we got both.

Lunch is a must!
We had a lovely time romping through the forest and the sweet/hard working dogs found 2 truffles.
Highly recommend this adventure.

We loved our truffle hunting adventure with Mihael!! He was so happy to answer all our questions about the truffles, take us to the forest and up to town, and we just had such a great time walking through the forest with him and his three dogs. We went during the off-season, but he still found us some truffles! It was such a unique experience to have, and he couldn't have made it better. Don't go to Croatia without doing this!! It's amazing :)

We had a great tour with Mihael, Lila, Luna and Roa. Now we all know why this is called truffle hunting - you need to be quick to catch the dogs, before they dig the truffle and have their own meal. Lila did a good job today, although the soil was fairly wet from yesterdays rain. Thanks to the rubber boots from Mihael we kept our feet dry.
The option with degustation menu was really worth the extra money - we were taken up to Mihaels place in Motovun, a beautifull terrace overlooking the valley, surrounded by grapes, where his mother prepared an excellent meal. Local, simple but with the special truffle twist - extraordinary! Leave some space for the dessert, its like falling from seven heavens! We spent a great day in Motovun!

We really enjoyed going on a truffle hunt with Micael and his three lovely dogs today. His English is excellent and we had very interesting conversations as we walked through the beautiful forest. It was very exciting when the dogs started digging furiously and then Micael would dig deeper with his truffle spade and we would wait with bated breath to see if any “treasures” had been unearthed.

I was a bit worried at the start that the terrain would be very steep and arduous but that was not the case at all. We walked along forest paths.

It was a great opportunity to be part of a truffle hunt and we were very sorry when it was over. We really recommend this authentic experience which is so much part of life in the Motovun region.
