One of the Best things we did in France
It was incredible!!! The tour, the information, the food…were perfect. We have traveled all over the world and this was by far one of the most interesting and informative tours. My husband speaks French but I do not, and yet I was able to understand and even have an in-depth conversation about farm life.

Rewarding Experience
We loved this experience. This is not a truffle hunt, it is a truffle find. First, Monsieur Aynaud, a master of every aspect of the black diamonds, entertains you with an education of the truffle, what it is, what it isn't, history, value, perception, and teaches you how to identify the authentic flavorful pungent black, grey and white truffles when shopping and dining. Then, he explains the delicate art and science of propagation and lastly, shows you exactly how to find and harvest truffles with his dogs and other accomplices. His passion and zeal are infectious, you will not go away disappointed.

Fantastic Visit!
I cannot say enough good things about Eduard and Barbara. They were incredibly warm and welcoming, Eduard is clearly one of the region's leading truffle authorities, and he shared his knowledge with a delightful sense of humor. The lunch they served us was absolutely delicious, and the dogs were a delight. If you are anywhere even remotely close to Saint Cyprian, make sure you do not miss this great experience!

Road Scholar Truffle Hunting and Lecture
Carole gave an excellent presentation on truffles to our small group. One of the highlights of our 2-week trip in sw France! A comment for future visitors: It's ok to pet the dog (scratch behind ears), the dog clearly wants to play and will drop various things at your feet, Carole does not want you to engage the dog in this kind of play. A side note: these types of dogs need to be mentally engaged and challenged to perform at peak effort. The us Army employs this breed for a variety of tasks and studies have shown that 'play' does not detract from their performing their primary tasks, in fact, they perform better when constantly challenged.
