We spent a wonderful day and enjoyed an amazing meal with new friends

Our day was spent with enjoying the amazing Florence scenery, the truffle hunting was amazing to watch them being uncovered- we were a little suspicious at the ease however as the hills were also used by other truffle hunters they would be crazy to plant them. The meal we enjoyed with new friends showed us the best of what truffles have to offer, with a Chianti winery stop on the way back to Florence rounded out a great day

Hillary was a great guide from start to finish, good sense of humor& very knowledgable concerning wine as well as the history of the library & the estate in San Miniato. Wine tasting tour was great & unexpected to that extent. The truffle hunting was an amazing experience & successful. The meal afterwards exceptional. The day exceeded our expectations. Thank you
