Truffle Hunting - What a Day
Jun 2019
We booked this as a surprise for My Wife and Daughters along with Boyfriend & Son in Law. Marco was really knowledgeable and good company, but he could not compete with the Ketti the Dog, who was the real star of the show. We all had a brilliant time and a great laugh. The experience was unique and will stay with us forever through some wonderful photographs. The truffle products aren't bad either and we filled our boots with the tasters and brought plenty of the Truffle salt (brilliant on chips) and Truffle Honey home with us. Well done Ketti. Oh and well done Marco.

Fabulous time!
Dec 2018 • Family
Our family was visiting my father in San Gimignano and went on a truffle hunt with Marco and his sweet hunting dog, Maia. He was kindly able to reschedule our day and time. He was very informative about the process and our daughters, 10 and 12 years old, enjoyed it as well. It was an experience I had hoped to have and this was absolutely lovely and a wonderful memory we will have. Highly recommended!

Good selection of product
Sep 2018 • Couples
Only stopped in to purchase truffle products, but had a good selection to chose from, was able to help with questions surrounding customs, and made suggestions on how to prepare the items purchased when cooking back at home. Can’t wait to try!

Amazing Experience
Apr 2018 • Couples
Marco and his father are so passionate of their job, they explained everything that we wanted to.
Also the dogs, we could see that they were happy finding the truffles, it's a way to have fun for them.

Even if the truffle season was almost over, we were able to find some small truffles, the experience was great and real, Maya was our dog hunter, she was a baby and a beginner at job, she prefers to eat the truffles instead give them to us, haha not stupid.

The city is very good to stay one or two days, it haves some places to have a great meal.

We were coming back from Venice by car to Rome.
The activity took the morning, after go in the forest, Marco offered us some types of truffles that they sell there.

The price is good, better than other places, we recommend.
If we can say something to get better, would be maybe: give a really small truffle found at the hunt as a gift and the tasting wasn't very rich when you compare to other experiences that we had with prosciutto and parmigiano reggiano.

Thank you for all. Hope see you again.
Sorry for the late review.

Ps. We ate the last truffle antipasti last weekend, we need some moreeeee !! :))

Authentic Italy, away from the crowds
May 2018 • Couples
Our truffle hunt with Marco and Lula was one of the highlights of our six weeks in Italy. It was a fantastic experience to be able to tramp around the Italian countryside enjoying the sounds and scents of nature. Marco is an excellent guide, and he made our truffle hunt both fun and informative. We were able to plan the trip online with him in advance, and thanks to his good organization, everything ran smoothly from start to finish. Marco collected us from near our apartment in Arezzo and we enjoyed the drive through very pretty countryside before starting the truffle hunt with Lula - great fun, and very successful! We also enjoyed visiting Marco's beautiful family farm, meeting his other dogs, and of course the truffle tasting, before Marco drove us back to Arezzo. This is an experience that takes you off the crowded tourist trail, and would appeal to any age group. Thanks Marco and Lula for an excellent afternoon and some happy memories!

Fantastic Tour - One of the Highlights of our Trip
Jun 2018 • Friends
Marco was absolutely fantastic. He was flexible and responsive when arranging our truffle hunt. We got held up in Florence and he was amazing in making himself available to ensure we had a great day. The scenery of our walk was stunning, and Marco balanced giving us informative talks about the truffle, letting us enjoy the scene, and watching the dog hunt. His dog was an absolute sweetheart. After the trip, we took the short trip back to San Gimignano to visit his very cool shop and enjoy lunch. Absolutely would book Marco again and recommend to friends.

A Gem in San Gimignano
Jun 2018 • Friends
There were three of us and from the beginning of booking and up until after Marco has been wonderful! Kind and comunicative we were completely ready for a day of Truffle hunting. He is extremely experienced and knowledgeable. Marcos dog Lula was just the sweetest and so smart we were amazed at how well she did. We (Lula and Marco) found so many truffles we could not believe it. Truly, this is something that you should not miss in San Gimignano. Also, visit their store within the city walls! Thank you Marco!!

Amazing
May 2018 • Couples
Traveling with 5 other family members we had booked Marco ahead of arriving and my personal thought, was truffle hunt really. However the others were excited about it so I went along.
WOW, glad I did. It was amazing and Marco was great explaining the details of our hunt. I have never seen a dog or dogs in this case work like this, it was incredible.
Then we got back to the starting point and got to enjoy a small tasting.
The truffle infused honey was delicious on the pecorino cheese.
The hunt was an easy walk in the woods for all to enjoy!
Highly Recommend!

We had a great day with Marco searching for chestnuts and hunting truffles. It was amazing to see Marco at work with his dogs in the forest. Our teenage boy loved the experience and had a fantastic time. Highly recommended!
