Truffle Tour Tuscany

Your upcoming trip to Italy is all about taking in the beautiful landscapes, the architecture, learning a bit of history and meeting the people. Have you thought about throwing in truffle hunting as well? Truffle hunting is something that very few people get to do in their lifetime, but now that you are going to be spending a few weeks in Italy you must include it in your itinerary.
There are several ways that you can go on a truffle hunt. You can decide to do it on your own – go to an area that is famous for truffles and look around in the hope that you will be able to dig up one or two. Some people choose to hire a guide and while this may work you have no idea who you are hiring or what their personal ethic is. Some people who claim to offer truffle tours take their client’s money and take them to any location and since truffles are so rare, if you don’t find one you really can’t claim that you were not taken truffle hunting.
The surest way to make the most of your time and money is to go with a truffle hunting tour group. These groups are put together by tour companies and you will be able to book your experience right at the beginning. On the day of the truffle hunt you will all travel together on a bus to an area that’s known for truffles and with the help of a guide who has a dog you will be lead to the paces that are most likely to have truffles.
You should try Sapori-e-Saperi – they are one of the leading truffle hunting tour companies in Italy and they have many satisfied clients. You can find out how to get on a tour on
