Siamo Mirco e Luca, dalla nostra comune passione per il tartufo è nata una collaborazione mirata a far conoscere alle persone il fascino del mondo dei tartufi. Nel corso degli anni abbiamo affinato la tecnica della caccia al tartufo, addestrato personalmente i nostri cani, scoperto pezzi di paradiso e visuali meravigliose nei boschi toscani.
La zona della ricerca è stata appositamente selezionata per la particolarità delle piante tartufigene, per la sua accessibilità e per la bellezza mozzafiato dei paesaggi infatti in primavera passeggeremo vicino agli scavi archeologici di Castel San Gimignano mentre in inverno il tour sarà svolto tra Poggibonsi e San Gimignano.
Dopo esserci incontrati vi porteremo in un terreno dove, dopo una breve spiegazione sui tartufi e l’addestramento dei cani, inizieremo la vera ricerca.
Il periodo del tartufo di Marzuolo va dal 10 gennaio al 30 aprile, per il tartufo Scorzone va dal 1 giugno al 30 agosto e per il tartufo bianco dal 10 settembre al 31 dicembre.
I tartufi marzuoli e scorzoni trovati durante la caccia verranno regalati ai partecipanti mentre i tartufi bianchi saranno venduti.
Bambini da 6 anni fino a 12 anni 30€

Excellent experience. Both Mirco and his adorable dogs Zara and muza were fantastic. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed the truffle hunting very much. Great experience. Mirco was a wonderful guide with his two beautiful dogs Zara and Muza.
Such a good experience!! Cutest dogs in all of Italy and found lots of different types of truffles 🙂 Mirco is friendly, kind and speaks great English. The walk itself is also beautiful with great views.

Amazing experience, very recommended

One of the highlights of our trip! Mirco and Luca were absolutely brilliant, teaching us all about truffle hunting. The dogs were adorable and so clever and we ended up finding lots of truffles which they let us keep!
We can’t stop talking about this experience even now we’re back home, and now we want to retire to Tuscany to become truffle hunters.
If you are visiting Tuscany you must go truffle hunting with Mirco! Mirco has an incredible wealth of knowledge about truffles and the landscape. He is also very kind and goes out of his way to make sure that his guests are comfortable and enjoying the experience. My husband and I went in February as a Valentine’s day date and we are so glad we did! We loved being away from the city and in nature. We found plenty of truffles, but finding the truffles is only half of the fun! A big part of what makes the experience so great is running around in the woods with the dogs (Heidi and Zara) and taking in some of Tuscany’s most breathtaking landscapes. My husband and I will definitely be going back in the spring!
Mirco è una persona gentile e generosa, che ti introduce ai tartufi senza risparmiare dettagli interessanti e arricchendo il tutto con aneddoti di esperienze vissute di persona. La passeggiata con i suoi splendidi cani, tra i profumi di queste terre, è una bella esperienza che consiglio a chi ama i boschi, i cani, i tartufi e la micologia. Quello dei tartufi è un mondo estremamente affascinante che merita di essere approfondito non solo sui libri, ma anche attraverso un’esperienza come quella offerta da Mirco.
Mirco was very friendly and forgiving of the fact that we were very late! He was warm and encouraged us to have a go with his supervision we could see it wouldn’t have been possible to find the truffles without his knowledge and I honestly couldn’t have distinguished some earth from the truffles because there was vegetation or stones that looked the same colour or texture. Also to preserve where the dogs or move on if they stop and move on. A genuine guy thanks Mirco!
Esperienza fantastica con Mirco e i suoi bellissimi cani. Ci si immerge in quella che è una bellissima attività nella natura. Bravo e grazie
Tolles Erlebnis! Mirco ist ein sehr kompetenter, erfahrener und freundlicher Trüffeljägr, der uns bei der Jagd aktiv teilhaben lies! Vielen Dank, Mirco 🙂
The experience was great even though we didn’t find any truffles. Spending time with Mirco and his dogs as well as seeing the countryside was well with the trip.
This was truly a uniquely wonderful experience! Mirco was a great host and we had so much fun. The dogs are amazing and so cute and we found a nice sized truffle! It was a very authentic and exciting part of our Tuscan vacation. I highly recommend this!
My husband and I went to Italy celebrating our 10 yr anniversary.. planned to just drive up through Tuscany and visit some hilltop towns and eat, eat and eat some more, soaking it up! But when we realized it was truffle season – we were ecstatic! We love truffles.. not knowing much more than beyond our love for the taste, we were curious about them. When I found Mirco’s tour, I knew we had to do as he was so close to us in San Gimignano! Mirco is very friendly and knowledgeable and excited to share his hobby, and man what a lucrative hobby it is! He can bring in some serious $$ for these little stinky truffle guys, and it was fun hearing about how he got started on it. What an exciting relaxing adventure.. he took us out in the wilderness with his pups, explaining all about the truffle, and just when we thought we wouldn’t find one.. both dogs ran to a spot and starting digging like CRAZY fast, and he had to tackle one of them to ensure she wouldn’t eat the prized nugget. .the digging began, and Mirco smelled the dirt, sqeaked with excitement and showed us – the dirt smelled like a ripe potent truffle all right! Then he found her…looking like a dirt covered piece of ginger, he carefully extracted her, because a broken truffle is worth less that a while one. It was like we were paleontologists looking for dinosaur bones! So much fun. And he gave us a few small truffles to take home.. YUM! Going to cook those up tonight for dinner with pasta. The truffles alone were with the price of the adventure! You will not be disappointed! Thanks again Mirco! So great meeting you – XOXO Steph & Eric
Amazing experience! Despite the weather we found a truffle. And even without that it was interesting to know what is like to hunt for truffle. Small dogs are funny and touchable) big dogs are more concentrated on searching. And our host Mirco is very kind person. Nothing but positive emotions after this experience.
Caitlin And Ploi –
Excellent experience!! Mirco is an awesome guide for truffle hunting. The 2 dogs are super cute and they are such a perfect hunter! We found 2 white truffles in 2 hours exploration. Highly recommended things to try in Tuscany!
Der Ausflug mit Mirco war ein Erlebnis! Wer Trüffel gern hat sollte auf jeden Fall diese Erfahrung machen.
A lovely morning looking for white truffles, great to watch Mirco and the dogs work and left understanding a whole lot more about the world of truffle hunting. The terrain was easy going for the children. Didnt find a truffle which would probably have excited the children more, but appreciate that this will not happen regularly and it only adds to the excitement of the hunt. If we had spoken Italian I think we would have been able to gain more information but Mirco did a great job in English.
This is a truly unique experience. Whether you even find truffles or not, you get to explore some beautiful areas of the Tuscan country side. Mirco is super passionate about truffle hunting and it’s infectious. We found almost 200g of truffle on our trip! And of course the dogs are amazing. This experience is a must do if you are in Tuscany.
Mirco took us on a beautiful adventure – the landscape was unreal and truly felt like a unique and special experience that we would have otherwise not been able to find or do on our own. His passion for truffle hunting comes through and made the experience extremely valuable. The two dogs are adorable and it was so fun walking/running through the Tuscany woods with them. We found two large truffles and some little guys but even hiking through the beautiful countryside was worth it. Mirco gifted us some truffles which we used for a pasta dinner that night. Highly recommend this experience – it’s one of the most interesting and memorable things we did on our trip to Italy 🙂
Sin da subito, Mirco si è mostrato accogliente e appassionato! Ci ha raccontato dettagliatamente delle varietà di tartufo locali ed esistenti e delle relative piante, ha risposto esaustivamente a tutte le nostre curiosità e ha anche mostrato interesse per i nostri percorsi di vita, cosa che ci ha fatto molto piacere. Abbiamo passeggiato immersi nella natura toscana e assaporato la pace dei boschi. Mirco è una compagnia davvero piacevole, ha una passione autentica per quello che fa. Altro e non meno importante punto forte della nostra esperienza sono state Heidi (“la vecchia”) e Zara, due affettuosissime e velocissime cacciatrici. Quello che Mirco ci ha trasmesso non è stata soltanto passione, ma anche una profonda e lunga conoscenza dell’attività di caccia (regole, qualifiche, addestramento dei cani, etc.) e del tartufo in sé. Insomma, ci siamo sentiti a casa. È un’esperienza unica da provare assolutamente e noi consigliamo di farlo con Mirco, Heidi e Zara!
It was an extraordinary experience to go for truffle hunting with Mirco an his dogs. We learned so much about it. Special thanks for giving us so much time and kindness.
We had an amazing time with Mirco and his dogs! The truffle hunt took us through both open scenery and thicket. When the dogs found a truffle, Mirco enthusiastically ran after, and encouraged us to participate in the search and extraction. He showed us how to smell the dirt, and we got to gently dig out the truffle ourselves! We enjoyed the thrill of a real hunt with its uncertainties (and excitements). Mirco explained about truffle locations and growth conditions, hunting techniques and dog training. He was clearly very passionate about truffle hunting, which unavoidably affected us as well. We highly recommend truffle hunting with Mirco and his wonderful dogs. It is an experience we will remember (especially when enjoying some fresh truffle using Mircos pasta recipe).
Mirco is such an awesome guy, and he has a ton of experience truffle hunting. He really took us inside his world of why people hunt truffles, what means they have to hunt them, and the kind of results that they get. You won’t have the chance to get the least bit bored with this learning, as the whole time you’re following and watching the dogs out of the corner of your eye to see if they’ve found something. You’ll meet his truffle hunting dogs. We were lucky enough to work with Arthur and Heidi, who did a great job. We found FOUR truffles in the time we were out there! Mirco really lets you take the reins, following the dogs and instructing them. If you want, you get to do the digging in the dirt and inspection/smelling with the dogs, which I HIGHLY recommend. It was awesome to get the chance to really be a truffle hunter for a short time! Be advised that in order to get the most out of the experience, I would advise being prepared to dig in the dirt with your hands (ie don’t have fake nails). I would also recommend wearing long pants and a long sleeve shirt. If possible, both should be baggy and durable. There are certain areas that there may be truffles where you may need to go through some thorny landscape. We did not, and we were able to work around them, but I think proper attire would have given us an even better experience. I would also recommend insect repellant spray, which we did have. It takes some effort, and you get your hands dirty, literally and metaphorically, but it was an incredible time! It was an interactive experience that truly felt like it was once-in-a-lifetime!
Mirco was a wonderful host! It is clear he has a passion for truffles, dogs, and nature. He made sure we were very well immersed in the experience, and even pointed out wild blackberries for us to munch on. He is wonderful with his dogs, too, who were sweethearts. He took pictures for us at the end with our bounty of white truffles and gave us ideas about cooking with them! This was fantastic and you must go – really a unique and memorable experience. Do make sure you bring bug spray!
Me and my husband decided to go truffle hunting with Mirco. We wanted try something different yet authentic to the region. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. We had the opportunity to hike through the lush countryside and find truffles with Mirco and his wonderful truffle dogs. It was a fantastic and delicious experience. We later went home and cooked up the truffle with egg pasta and it was phenomenal. I highly recommend this experience.
Ein Must-Do Erlebnis in der Toskana, gerade mit Kindern.
A wonderful experience with Mirco and his well trained/friendly dogs. Mirco and the dogs helped find handful of truffles in 3 different sites. This added a highlight to our trip in Tuscany. After the hunt, Micro treated us with a homemade tasty lunch (truffle, fresh tomato, olive oil, little salt on top of bread). This is unforgettable experience. We highly recommend to go truffle hunting with Micro.
Ho partecipato a questa esperienza durante una trasferta di lavoro, insieme ai colleghi, per un momento di networking. Mirco e la sua assistente Claudia si sono dimostrati molto disponibili sin dal momento della prenotazione. Durante l’esperienza hanno permesso al gruppo di divertirsi e imparare dalla loro competenza nell’attività. Senza dubbio un’attività diversa dal solito e divertente che consiglierei!
My family had a wonderful experience hunting truffles with Mirco and his family. Zara, the older dog, is a star and we collected several hundred grams of truffles within an hour! This is a great experience with no frills attached – get right to the hunting and be done in 2 hours – which was perfect for my family with little kids and grandparents.
Was für ein geniales Erlebnis: Mirco kam mit seinen zwei Hunden die nichts lieber tun, als Trüffel zu suchen. Wir fuhren alle gemeinsam an einen speziellen Ort. Dann kurze Erklärung, Hunde freigelassen und dank ihrer feinen Nase war der erste Trüffel auch schon bald gefunden. Nach zwei Stunden war ganz schön was zusammen gekommen. Klare Empfehlung!!
La experiencia fue maravillosa, Mirco nos explicó las características de cada tipo de trufa y los lugares donde se encuentran, nos divertimos mucho. Todo superó nuestras expectativas. Mirco es una gran persona y sus perros sin duda son las estrellas principales de la actividad. MUCHAS GRACIAS!!!!!
We had a wonderful time truffle hunting with Mirco and his dogs! Mirco was very friendly and we were very comfortable with him. He was passionate about truffles and Tuscany. We found many small truffles. We would love to go hunting with Mirco and his dogs again!
Out of our two week honeymoon in Italy, my husband and I both agree that Mirco’s truffle hunt was the very best part. It was fabulous to learn the craft and his dogs were fabulous too. He was quite the expert and although we both didn’t speak the same language fluently he always made his very best effort to explain all of the ins-and-outs. We would 10,000% do this hunt again and recommend it to our friends.
