We had a great day learning about truffles and exploring the countryside with Giulio. It was fun to meet his wonderful truffle hunting companion Maga. It was a hot day, so we started a little earlier in the forest and quickly found four truffles that we took back to Giulio’s home to eat over cheese and pasta. We had fun talking over lunch and enjoyed the songs that Giulio shared with us. Who knew there could be twelve songs dedicated to the truffle!? We had a fantastic day. If you love truffles than this is the experience for you.

We were lucky enough to be the only ones for this experience with Giulio, and got a very personal experience out of it. Giulio is a very passionate individual, and touched us with his in-depth knowledge on truffles, his random quips, and sometimes life advice! The little unexpected side tangents is what makes this experience feel so authentic.

It has been an amazingly interesting and joyful experience! We got to learn not only about truffles, which in itself was something special for me and something I m sure I won’t forget. But we also had a wine experience as during the 1st day Giulio took us to Gastronomia Galanti where Andrea the owner and also an award winning sommelier explained the wines that were paired to the truffle snacks we had. On top on second day, Giulio took us to a small local shop where we enjoyed Prosecco with Tuscan salami with fennel. Giulio is a great host, and I m definitely recommending his experience to everyone! Thank you Giulio!

This was an exceptional experience! My mom and I enjoyed the delicious appetizers and wine while learning about truffles on the first night. The second day was fantastic as we went in search for truffles and even experienced some of the local culture for post-hunting beverages at a local bar! It is a must-do when in Italy!

Wonderful experience. Giulio is very passionate about truffles. I can fully understand what truffles are, how do they grow, and how to choose truffles based on season. Also amazing hunting atmosphere in the Tuscan forest. And of course, two lovely dogs, Eda and Maga.

This was one of the highlights of our two-week honeymoon in Europe. Spend the extra money to go with Giulio as he is the best! The evening truffle lesson/wine tasting was educational, delicious, and a great way to break the ice with Giulio before spending the next day with him and his adorable dogs. Maga and Eda are so smart and lovable! Giulio's lunch was one of the best meals we had on vacation. We left in love with truffle and in love with Maga and Eda! Don't miss this!
