Truffle Hunting and Cooking Class in a Farm with Lunch
From $297.48 (Price varies by group size )
, Sep 2019
Family and translator were warm, informative, and fun to be with. Food was delicious and plentiful. Overall worthexperience. For us, however, there was not enough hands on. We only watched from a short distance the truffle hunting. We were not invited to participate in actual searching or digging. Participated only briefly in food prep, though we were provided much information about the ingredients and prep. The organizer goofed up the departure point which caused inconvenience and unnecessary taxi ride. Suggest guests confirm this at least day before.
