TRUFFLE HUNTING WITH GOURMET TRUFFLE LUNCH
Succulent meal with truffle delicacies
Full day experience immersed in the nature
Private van with driver
Treat yourself into a truly gourmet experience, and book a private guided truffle hunt in the Tuscan countryside!
Transported from Florence to the Tuscan countryside with a private driver, and then taken care of by the hunter guide and his “truffle dog”, you will get to spend a magic day immersed in the nature, and delighted by the flavours of truffle and wine.
The truffle hunting experience is especially designed for wine and food lovers. The goal is to provide you with an intense and replenishing experience, both in nature and at the table, by tasting delicacies combined with selected wines of the area.
Seven hours long, the excursion starts from Florence, where you will be picked up at your apartment or hotel. Your private driver will then take you out to the Tuscan countryside, where the truffle hunting will happen.
You will be received by the hunter guide, who will explain to you how the research of the little smelling stones works, and will also introduce you to the “leading character” of the story, the “truffle dog”. The relationship between the truffle hunter and his loyal dog is going to leave you spellbound.
You will walk through the woods with the master truffle dog, and this is the most fascinating part of the route, where you can see the dog in action. While you can only smell the scent of the woods, the dog will smell the truffle and provide you with the main ingredient of your lunch!
Yes, because the tour gets its climax with a salivating “all truffle” lunch, where you will be able to taste many local products, some good wine, and a lot of fresh truffle.
