What you'll do

At the hunting spot you get acquainted with me and my dogs. I also make you familiar with the habitat of the truffles. I show you the excitement of hunting these treasures in the forests in 70-90 minutes. If you would like to taste the truffles, we can have a picnic in the forest with Hungarian wine and soda.
As the forests are not plyagrounds, we are guiding 1-8 people at a time. Difficulty level of the tours ranges from light walk to hiking, sometimes hiking boots are required. Tours are available from 16 May to 14 March!
Other things to note
The forests are habitats of thousands of animals and plants. Please behave as a respectful guest!
We might cancel the tour if the weather is too bad for truffle hunting.

I have been hunting for truffles for seven years with my dogs. A truffle hunter in Hungary has to take an exam on the regulations of truffle hunting, and we can use only specially trained dogs. We also need a written permission of the owner of the forest to collect these treasures.
Truffle hunting is my life from the time I have my first dog, who was seeing things with her nose.

We had a lovely morning with Imre and the dogs. The experience was informative and entertaining and it was delightful to see the animals - which have very different personalities - in action. It was obvious that Imre and the dogs were in tune with each other. The delicious truffle-based meal was also very thoughtful at the end and it was nice to eat and chat in such a pleasant environment. The experience was definitely one of the highlights of our year.

This was the highlight of our trip to Budapest. It was a lot of fun to see Imre work with the dogs and we learned a lot. The picnic was delicious as well. We even got to keep a few of the truffles and made a very tasty pasta dish out of them in the evening. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something special!

This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us. Imre was so passionate and knowledgeable about the truffles, it was a pleasure to watch him interact with the dogs. His interpreter was a delight and made the communications easy. We also got our "doggie fix" while on this experience with two friendly, gentle, well-behaved dogs.

This was absolutely a highlight of our trip. Imre and his dogs were awesome, despite the cold weather and snow on the ground. We found a couple handfuls of truffles and had a lovely lunch with wine. Would love to do this again.

Jeg dro sammen med min datter på 23 år. Vi hadde ingen forkunnskaper om trøffel, og hadde aldri smakt det. Vi hadde lyst å gjøre noe morsomt, ikke bare gå i de vanlige turisttråkkene når vi skulle besøke Budapest. Hadde fin kontakt med Imre før vi kom. Han møtte oss på avtalt sted, i god tid. Vi valgte å ta taxi, siden reisen krevde transportbytte og vi var lite kjent. Imre snakker ikke engelsk, med hadde med seg ei hyggelig dame som oversatte godt underveis så det var ikke noe problem. De to labradorene hans var rolige og fine, og det var lett å se at han hadde fin kontakt med de. De var et godt team. Trøffeljakten foregikk langs stiene innover i en flott løvskog. Selv om det nå ikke var mye løv igjen på trærne var dette et flott turområde. Det gikk ikke lang tid før hundene fant de første trøflene, og Imre delte sin kunnskap om dette. Veldig morsomt å se hvordan hundene søkte seg frem. Underveis fikk vi tilbud om et glass vin, før vi gikk videre. Vi hadde en flott tur på let etter trøffel i skogen, og lærte mye. Da vi var ved veis ende, tryllet han frem duk og dekket bord med hjemmelagde sandwicher, tiramisu og vin. Til og med sitteunderlag hadde han ordnet. Det ble et lærerikt og morsomt avbrekk. Turen gikk i flatt og lett terreng, i rolig tempo. Jeg anbefaler turen på det varmeste
