I'm a professional truffle hunter from 3 generations in Alba. My grandfather after 2nd world war was one of the first truffle hunting/seller in Alba, he taught to my father all the secrets about the precious "ipogean fungus" then my father taught it to me. I'm a dog trainer & actually i've got 3 great dogs: Mac, Kelly and Turbo. I would like to teach "some"of my truffle hunting segrets to travellers. During the tour you will helped by my friend Margherita. She's an official tourist Cuneo province guide, 100% ALBESE, with a deep knowledge of the Piedmont region and a great passion for truffles providing to translate every part of the hunting.

Such an exciting experience! Margherita was a great host and Giovanni & his dog Miki were super entertaining. We learned a lot about truffle hunting (and luckily found a couple!) . If you’re around Alba, DO NOT MISS IT.

Margherita was great at explaining the difficult task of finding truffles and how they are appreciated. We were lucky to have seen the hunter (Giovanni) and his dog (Turbo) in action. Smell of truffles were amazing!

We had a great time truffle hunting with Lisa the dog, the truffle hunter and Margarita and were lucky enough to find 3 truffles (2 white and one black.) It was very informative and also fun for the children.

Eine unterhaltsame Trüffelsuche mit freundlichen Menschen. Hat viel Spaß gemacht und war sehr informativ. Der Suchhund Turbo hat erfolgreich Trüffel aufgespürt.

Lovely host with great information about truffels and the area. You get a mini master-class all about truffels, unfortunately you do not get to keep the ones you find.

We enjoyed the tour. Lovely to learn more about truffles and how they can be found. The tour guide and the hunter were really friendly and willing to share their knowledge about truffle. We found a small white truffle and a larger black truffle. In hindsight I found the price for the tour quite high in comparison to what the tour encompassed. That being said, I would recommend the tour to all people curious to learn more about truffles.
