Truffle hunting was exiting and the lunch was very delicious. But the arrangement of wine tasting was very poor as their staff was not a professional particularly in wine tasting recommendations. I think the tour fare is quite higher than other countryside tour in Tuscany.

Francesca and her dogs we're wonderful. We went on the truffle hunt, followed by a 5 star homecooked meal by Francesca and her mother in a beautiful Tuscan mansion. The whole experience was wonderful.
