Istrianatravel is the best! Look no more and book with them if you are considering an excursion. We booked a truffle hunting tour and Mrs. Zdenka Majcan was super helpful and awesome. She’s very responsive and connected us with the best truffle estate in the Istrian Region. We found three white truffles and had an amazing time learning the truffle history, exploring the forest with the dogs and family, and delicious 3 course truffle filled meal. After truffle hunting we inquired about harvesting olives and she went out of her way to connected us with this other family down the road who was harvesting their olives. We had the best time and would book again with them. 5 stars to this top notch company!

Though it was raining heavily, we were adventurous and excited for the experience. Our guide, chef, server, and the owner we're all wonderful and kind. The hunt was exciting and the food was delicious. %100 would recommend. We were 4 30-year olds. Good also for people any age that like to walk in the woods and eat food!

Istriana Travel did a fantastic job booking us for truffle hunting with the Svilicic family. Zdenka, the Tour Manager, was highly responsive in coordinating a tour for us, especially relatively at the last minute. We had a wonderful time hunting for white truffles with Mihael and the dogs and then enjoying an amazing 4 course meal made with the truffles. We highly recommend booking with Istriana Travel and the Svilicic family. Unique experience we all enjoyed immensely!

Zdenka and the whole Karlic crew gave us a wonderful and memorable experience. Everyone we interacted with was knowledgeable and enthusiastic, even the dogs! We not only learned about the art of truffle hunting and ate a delicious meal but we got to spend hours in a verdant forest and gorgeous dining room in a charming and picturesque hill town. Definitely recommend!

What a wonderful way to experience the hill towns of the Istrian peninsula of Croatia! Zdenka was terrific and responsive to all our questions. The truffle hunt was such fun and the dogs found several truffles. Equally as fun was the time spent with the Karlic family. Sampling the truffles used in a variety of local foods was only made better by the beautiful room the family built overlooking the forest. Radmilla Karlic did a cooking demonstration using truffles with scrambled eggs. Her entire family, as well as Zdenka, are some of the most pleasant and happy people we have met! They truly enjoy what they are doing and it shows both in their presentation as well as their attention to detail. What a terrific way to get away from the tourist areas and experience a truly unique family business!
