“So there were no truffles this season, so what?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2012

Moreno was lovely and gave a couple of black truffles to take home anyway. We didn't find any on the farm but was interesting to see the process with the dogs and the beautiful scenery. We also did a wine tour with him (even though not much was open, he tried his best!) which was enjoyable. Nice to see a young guy with a lot of initiative and great tour ideas. I'd recommend, it's a fantastic region, probably better outside of Christmas when we went when things are pretty quiet.

“Enjoyed the truffle hunting experience, our guide and the best food of our trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2011

Prior to our trip I found the information for truffle hunting via Trip Advisor. We had not been to Le Marche region previously so were looking for some unique things to do. Moreno was in contact very quickly with the info I was looking for and allowed us to arrange our activities very easily via email.
He met us at the appointed time and we explored the area with him and he explained all about truffles, the seasons, the regulations, etc. We had a really fun time at the farm area watching the dog Franco find these truffles and we would have to get to the dog before he ate them (the dog was specially trained to find truffles so, of course, he loves truffles!) The entire area is beautiful and we went for a drive after to another beautiful hill town for an apertif and then on to our lunch which was wonderful! We were in Italy for 19 days and this lunch, which included our found truffles, was probably our best food of the trip - a family run locals restaurant. Moreno handled everything and is charming and fun to talk with - he was as interested in us as we were in all that he was doing (he does run many other activities so ask him or hire him to help you with your activities)! All in all, the four of us that got together with Moreno thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and this beautiful area in Italy. Do not hesitate to work with Moreno on your activities.

we had a wonderful time on the truffle hunt and the trip in Le Marche. Moreno was a most informative and fun person to be with..... he made everything enjoyable!
The truffle hunt was fun....watching the dog go crazy when he got the scent of the truffle and then we all went crazy with that terrific scent of the truffles in our car!
We had a delicious lunch .....cooked pasta and enjoyed the truffles.

“Great and personal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2011

Me and my wife really liked this tour. In particular the very personal approach and enthusiasm of Moreno who showed us a great piece of rural life in Le Marche which I think is difficult to come across otherwise as a tourist. If you are interested in food and enjoy nature this is definiately the tour for you.

“One of my great life experiences!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2011

An amazing trip. I learnt how the dogs hunt, how they respond to their hunter/master, where they hunt, and how they dig up the truffle - so very gently. And all in beautiful Le Marche countryside. They found 10 truffles on the day we went with them. It was a superb experience and we went home with truffles to eat with spaghetti that night.
