  1. Shelley

    Had a fantastic time with Michele and his dog Aika. He changed his plans to pick us up from Verona when our circumstances changed and happily answered our endless questions. Aika found plenty of truffles and we learned much more than we ever expected to about them. Thank you very much for a great day in the mountains!

  2. Charlie

    We had the most magical time exploring the Veronan forests with Michele and his beautiful truffle dog. We couldn’t believe how many truffles we found and Michele was incredible patient and knowledgeable about all things truffle. The lunch after was in a lovely restaurant we wouldn’t have found on our own in 100 years! Couldn’t recommend more!

  3. Helen

    An absolutely brilliant experience! Michele (and his dog Ika) were enthusiastic and passionate about finding truffles. Michele was keen to share his in-depth knowledge of the local seasonal truffle types, their preferred environments and conditions as well as climatic problems with locating them. After finding four of the seven local varieties of truffle, Michele drove us to a local ancient trattoria where we were provided with some of the best local food that we have eaten in Italy (of course paired with the freshly harvested truffle found by Ika only minutes before). Simply the best experience I have had in Italy…

  4. Laura

    This is a great experience, highy recommend! The truffle hunting was exciting and Michele is very knowledgeable on the topic. We really learned a lot. After picking up truffles, we went to a local osteria to taste them in a dish. The food was very good. We really enjoyed the atmosphere of the osteria and the local community. We would have never had this experience on our own. Michele was very friendly and we enjoyed his stories about Italy and truffles.

  5. Eric

    What a great experience! Michele was an excellent host, we enjoyed learning about truffles and Veneto. Watching Aika and Michele work together finding truffles was magical and the lunch we shared was delicious! We felt very welcomed and cared for, and would recommend this experience to anyone.
