We had an amazing time with Andrea and Brie! Andrea was extremely accommodating, making sure we were comfortable and having a good time. The lunch was lovely and was really a unique experience. Andrea clearly is very passionate about truffles, dogs, and his town and really gave us a perspective about life in Italy. Highly recommended!

Andrea and Brie were absolutely incredible. Outstanding experience — starting with Andrea’s personable and welcoming character, and ending with delicious meal. Can’t recommend this enough — truly a once-in-the-lifetime experience!

This was SO RAD and so fun! 100% recommend! If you’re thinking about booking this, you should totally do it! Our teenagers absolutely loved it and we did too. Totally worth it! Andrea is amazing...super knowledgeable about truffles, professional, funny, and honestly just really nice. The hike he took us on was beautiful and Brie is the sweetest Lagotto Romagnolo in the world. Andrea had a really neat modern perspective on Italian truffle culture and he also made us an amazing lunch...it was like being inside an episode of “Parts Unknown”, it was so authentic and cool and involved super good food. I can’t say enough good things about Andrea and Brie. They are special and if you’re reading this, I hope you get to meet them too!

We had the most INCREDIBLE local experience with Andrea, it was worth every penny. Truffle hunting was a truly authentic way to see the gorgeous countryside of Cortona and there is no better person (and dog) to go with than Andrea and Bri. Andrea is deeply invested in the ethical treatment of the dogs he works alongside and his passion and love for Italy, truffles, dogs, and AMAZING food and wine was clear. The meal he prepared with salami, cheese, bread, Prosecco, and of course unbelievably fresh truffle pasta was one of the best things we have ever eaten! We will be back and would recommend this to anyone at all. Thank you thank you Andrea and Bri for making our trip to Tuscany :)

Andrea’s experience was wonderful. He was knowledgeable in truffles, dogs and the region. He provided us with a wonderful picnic in the woods and made it all seem very intimate. 5/5!
