    Truffle Extravaganza!
    Cheryl_N, Nov 2022
    This was an amazing unforgettable day. Alessandro and Mocha led us on a mega truffle hunt and we loved every moment of it. He picked us up at the train station with an interpreter (that was not necessary, but she was great) and led us to an estate for the hunt. Mocha found 11 truffles and then we headed to the middle of Siena for wine and truffled items from his store. I would pay for friends and family to do this anytime they visit. Siena is a beautiful village and worth staying over night. Amazing horse races and car show that day as well. BOOK IT NOW!
    fantastic truffle experience with Alessandro!

    Truffle hunting with Alessandro and his two dogs Moka and Pepita was a highlight of my two week trip to Italy! The experience was interesting and also hands-on with an opportunity to dig for a truffle out of the ground with help from Alessandro. He was a great host, passionate about the world of truffles and very knowledgeable answering all questions about the process. The tasting afterwards was fantastic as well! Would go again
    Amazing experience!
