This was a great outing for our whole family. Informative, entertaining and delicious! We did lose cell service once we left the main road so be sure to download the map or directions ahead of time.

Review of: Foraging Tour

I took a group of women here as part of a yoga retreat, and we had such a wonderful experience. Many of the women thought this was a highlight of the whole retreat. Dmitri was very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend!

I discovered so many new mushrooms and plants. I felt like I was a kid again, surrounded by enchanted, abundant woodland. Our knowledgeable guides answered many questions and taught us so much. Will remember the day for years to come!

Within a very small area there were numerous and tasty plants, berries and nuts to eat. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable. Fun way to learn!
