Here a message of our friends from Philadelphia, who enjoyed a day at Alessio's focusing on truffle hunting on 1st October 2018:

Hello from Philadelphia.

John, Allison and I want to thank you for the wonderful day we spent with you for the truffle hunt and lunch. The experience in the woods with Danieli and Pato was great, as was the cooking and lunch time with Alessio, Paula and Maria. (Sorry if the spelling of their names is not correct).

The day was the highlight of our daughter’s trip and left a wonderful impression of the landscape and people of Tuscany and the joy John and I experience each time we visit. We will be back next year and will hopefully find another adventure to book with Arianna & Friends.



I wrote a 5 star message the last time we were with you. I went back using the link you provided to write another one, and the Trip Advisor site would not let me post it. I’ll try another time. Hope all is well with you.

This is the message of appreciation of Kerry, who visited Tuscany and enjoyed our truffle hunting tour with Alessio in December 2017:

Hello Massimo,

It has been a very hectic time since our return from our trip in Italy.

I wish to thank you so much for your time on our trip on the truffle hunt with Daniell and Parko.
We enjoyed the day and delicious lunch immensely and wish to return once again.

I am still uncertain at this time on the Bocelli Tour for 2018 but hope to make it in 2019 definitely.
Also to do other tours with Arianna and Friends.

Thank you so much once again.
A Merry Xmas to you and all the members of your staff and a prosperous 2018.
Saluti di Australia,
Kerry, Lorenza, Aaron, Janine and Ava.
