Looking for white and black truffles with a dog!


Begin this two-hour tour driving to the truffle hunting location within 30 minutes drive from Asti.
Transport is not included but if you need it, tell me the number of people and the pick-up location so I will send you a quote for the transport cost.
Meet the truffle hunter and his inseparable dog in an easily accessible wood, to witness the art of finding truffles, discovering places where they grow and other secrets behind the scene. You will be charmed by the strong relation between the dog and the man helping them taking out truffles from the soil, if any!
Most hunters don't speak English, so I will be there translating for you. If you wish to extend the tour with a city tour or a wine tasting or lunch or cheese tasting, please let me know and I will send you a customized tour itinerary and quote.
