Visitors feedback tells everything, here are some…

Learned So Much

"Before our visit our only experience with truffles had been to enjoy eating them. After our outing we have a new respect for the truffle hunter and his dogs. The dogs loyalty to their owner is paramount! Great day in the countryside and after yummy lunch with truffles nearby."

Fantastic truffle hunting

"We had such an informative time with Nikola and his extremely well trained dogs Mala and Zara. They were the kings of the show but Nikola spoke great English and explained in detail how he goes about training the dogs and all about truffle hunting."

Unique/Fun Experience

"We learned a lot from Nikola! It was fascinating to learn all that goes into truffle hunting! Nikola was very knowledgeable and fun to talk to. He was also very understanding when our 16 month old daughter had a meltdown. I would definitely recommend it for anyone..."

A great experience!

"Nikola and his dogs were a lot of fun - I would totally recommend this if you want a unique learning experience during your trip to Croatia! My husband and I went to Croatia on our honeymoon. We stayed in Motovun, and met Nikola in Livade, a small town nearby."
