Reviewed May 13, 2013

Truffles have long been an enigma especially in our lives, much read very little touch and taste for us. Our Truffle Hunt at Les Pastras gave us hands on touch and taste what an experience !!!
Our hosts Lisa and Johann were charming, informative and a pleasure to be with. Our hunt dogs were incredible as was our lunch after all the hunt excitement .
Even if you are a die-hard Truffle connoisseur this special day should not be missed.
