We had a terrific day with Max as part of our private wine tour around the southern Dordogne. Communication was great and punctual from the outset through Katie at the team and continued when Max collected us from our accommodation on time and brimming with enthusiasm. We visited four private houses, each different from the next and all brilliant on their own way. A highlight was meeting a regional grower in the Tourism Office in the stunning surrounds of Montbazilliac, where amongst the cyclists and tourists we sample local wine from little
vineyards. A wonderful lunch overlooking the Bergerac valley at Tour de Vents was amazing and as was the side tour to a local, beautiful and recently renovated Chateau - we wouldn’t have found it without Max. His exceptional language skill, humour and knowledge was unsurpassable for our family and it made our holiday to share it with a Duck and Truffle experience.
I can’t recommend highly enough this little company who will make your stay extra special!
Thanks to Max, Katie and all the team!

We had a wonderful weekend thanks to the Duck and Truffle team- Max, Simon, Emma and Kate. Wine tasting in local vineyards with an experienced sommelier who was as pleasant as he was knowledgeable. It was like traveling around with your good friend who also knows so much about wine! And Simon drove us to the restaurants they had booked for us based on knowing the area so well. We loved our hotel....Mont d'Onel. And we loved meeting the truffle farmer. As an example of how special Duck & Truffle are, not only did they greet us on arrival at the hotel, but Max went out after his working day to buy me some wine I mentioned that I had enjoyed at a restaurant. The attention to detail and personal service throughout the whole weekend exceeded our expectations and we would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn more about the food and wine of Dordogne.

All my recommendations for Max and his team. They have an excellent knowledge of the region and were very flexible with even last minute changes on numbers of people participating in the tour. Two thumbs up.

If you are looking for something different to do during the “off season” in this region of France, this is great tour to sign up for. Emma and Max with Duck & Truffle organized the perfect day for us. We paid extra to have Max pick us up at our hotel in Sarlat-la-Canéda, and we were glad we did. We spent some time with truffle farmer Sebastian and his dog hunting truffles and even had the chance to dig one up ourselves. Max was prepared with rain boots and umbrellas for us, which were much appreciated. We got to sample some truffle-laden food before being driven to a location for a gourmet meal which was wonderful. Then, a visit to a family-run winery for a sampling, which was equally divine. Seriously, this was the highlight of our vacation to southern France. Thank you Max & Emma for providing such a great outing!

Thank you so much for your review Deanna - and what better way to spend Valentine's day then hunting for your very own 'black diamond'.

We had a fabulous day out yesterday with Max from the Duck & Truffle. We started with Truffle hunting with Sebastian and his lovely dog Falco. Together they found about 6 truffles and we learnt so much from the experience. It was very cold, but going back to Sebastian’s for a truffle treat and a warm up, made it all worthwhile! This was followed by a lovely lunch at a local bistro in Monbazillac. After which we went to a couple of local chateaux for wine tastings. These were very good and Max is very knowledgable on wines which helped a great deal. I must say Richard and I both said it was one of the best days out we’ve had for a long time. We would certainly recommend it to anyone especially if you like truffles, food, wine and the beautiful Dordogne countryside, even in cold conditions it has a certain charm, as does Max who is an excellent guide for the day. Thank you very much Duck & Truffle xx.
