Ton of fun and something completely different
Sep 2021
My wife and I went on the truffle hunting experience and had a blast. Nikola is a great guide, a ton of fun, has interesting stories to share. The dogs weren't the best behaved but they were able to find 4 truffles on our trek so who am I to judge!

Following the tour, we then went and visited a local winery that sold Nikola's products. The lady there cooked us truffle / eggs and had truffle cheese and bread for us. This all paired with a wine tasting.

Definitely worth a go and a highlight of our honeymoon.

Nikola was great! While we didn’t see any truffles, watching the dogs in action and the food recommendation (truffle fuzi pasta!) afterwards was well worth it!

Truffle Hunting at the end of August
Aug 2021
TrulyCroatia Tours, the agency my husband and I took for our trip in Croatia, organized a private truffle hunt with Nikola.

I've seen some hunt at the TV but to experience it live was something unforgettable.
Nikola's dogs are very friendly and were amazing at their special skill : finding the truffles underground.
Late August was the inbetween season for truffles. Nevertheless the dog found many rotten ones, and a proper one that we could even try. It was good :-)
Nikola led us through the woods and explained us his and his dogs' job. He could answer every question we had and we could see how he was working.
Very nice and instructive experience in the shade of the forest.

Interesting tour
Jul 2021 • Family
We had a lovely afternoon of truffle hunting with Nikola and his two dogs Nero and Zara. It was very exciting to see the dogs at work, and they found quite a few black truffles in the woods. Nikola suggested a great restaurant where we could do some tasting of dishes with truffle and it was topped off with shavings of a truffle that we found!

True to his word … an authentic truffle hunting experience
Jul 2021 • Family
Truffle hunting with Nikola Tarandek is an amazing experience. A brief intro at the edge of the forest followed by an amazing truffle hunt through the forest itself with his dogs yielded numerous truffles. I highly recommend this experience.

Truffle Hunting With Sweet Pups
May 2021
My partner and I had a wonderful experience with Nikola! His pups Flokie and Dokie are friendly and very entertaining. Nikola is knowledgeable and taught us so much about the truffle hunting experience. He was equipped with bug spray and let us borrow rubber boots as the forest is quite muddy. Without asking, Nikola was always suggesting to take pictures with our phones which I appreciated. After the truffle hunt was done, he took us to some local producers to taste honey and wine. The day ended with a great meal at Casa Rossa. Make sure you order the dessert! I would definitely recommend Nikola for a private truffle hunt and overall enjoyable experience.

Amazing white truffle adventure!
Oct 2020 • Couples
Truffle hunting with Nikola is an absolute must! If you enjoy truffles and want a local experience in the Motovun region of Istria I highly recommend this activity! He is the best at what he does, bringing you through an adventure in the forest with his dogs searching for these delicious treasures. It’s amazing to see how the process works and will make you appreciate the food and culture even more!

We had a great experience with Nikola. We found a little white truffle only a few minutes after entering the forest; it was small enough that he let us keep it after the tour so we could enjoy it. We also found a few others even though he said it was not a great year. His dogs were nice. Furthermore, he showed us great place tu buy amazing olive oil, and thanks to him, we had a nice price to Zigante restaurant (Michelin restaurant cooking truffles -50 euros per person)
