Best birthday experience!
, Jun 2019
My family and I booked this excursion for my birthday while visiting Italy. It was the best experience! Our guide picked us up right on time, was so knowledgeable, and everything was planned perfectly. Our truffle hunter and darling dog went at a great pace for our group (we had a 2 and 4 year old with us), and we found a bunch of truffles! We concluded the day by having one of the most delicious meals at a very authentic restaurant. Such an amazing experience- would definately do again!

LOVED IT!!! If you are willing in invest in a life time experience-this is a must do in Naples. Incredible experience with successful discovery of truffles. Hike with hunting was stunning too. Great guide and truffle hunter lead this experience. Finished wonderful day off with lunch while enjoying some of our truffles. They sealed the rest for us to take to enjoy on our remaining trip.

This tour was fantastic. Our tour guide Giuseppe is extremely knowledgable of the truffle hunt experience, this particular Italian region, food of the region, and very friendly. We started the day by the driver and Giuseppe picking us up at the cruise ship terminal seemlessly. During the drive, Guiseppe spoke of the area and its economy, history, and it's people. We drove about an hour into the mountains stopping for an espresso in a charming small Italian city while meeting the truffle hunter and his two beautiful truffle hunting dogs. We then proceeded up the mountain to a point, then proceeded by foot. A beautiful mountain with many types of wild flowers and excellent views of the valley and other cities. Giuseppe provided to us two truffles that at then our adventurous walk, proceeded to our gourmet lunch at an exquisite charming restaurant that was open just for our tour. We proceeded to have an eight course true Italian foodie lunch in the Irpinia region highlighting the fresh truffles on homemade ravioli that melted in your mouth. On the way back to our ship We purchased some Olive Oils which Giueseppe recommended. I strongly recommend this tour.

Are you foodie enough? Don`t you...

Are you foodie enough? Don`t you mind hiking slippery paths up and down the hills? Our kids loved the dogs hunting (in reality the dogs have eaten most of the found truffles ... turning kids to laugh about a lot). Best time to go is in November - January when winter truffles are aplenty. The hunter himself doesn`t speak English, but in tandem with the tour guide they have offered extensive information on truffle hunting, the region where we were, history of the area - exactly what we expect from private tour. They offered us a possibility to visit local food festival (Sagra) after the hunting which turned into hours long feast of small bites from hundreds of food stands. A day every foodie will remember for long. The only improvement could be the people carrier used to drive us over 1h from Naples to the woods. It has been old cargo car. We`ve been told that local transport companies doesn`t want better cars (i.e. Mac Viano) to go to the woods.
