The adventure begins as soon as you arrive at the take-off field, which is dependent on weather conditions and will be provided to you the day before your flight. Watch as the balloons are inflated and prepared before your eyes.

One of the most amazing experiences of our entire life. Super nice guide, very knowledgeable & skilled, such a smooth, peaceful ride. Views of Tuscany were outstanding! Prosecco toast and breakfast afterwards were the icing on the cake. Became fast friends with the others in our basket. Would highly recommend everyone do this if you have the means. Just spectacular!

Awesome experience for people of all ages

Take a 78-year-old mother to experience a great hot air balloon trip. Overlooking the entire Tuscan landscape in mid-air, and seeing the sunrise behind the hills. Very gentle and comfortable flight, suitable for seniors and children. The only inconvenience is that the tourists need to climb in and out of the hot-air balloon basket. Fortunately, a gentleman from Australia took his mother in and out, very grateful.

Fantastic early morning adventure

I would recommend the ballon ride, an absolute gem of an activity. There were 4 balloons in our group (6 in our basket with pilot) and due to favourable breeze we were able to travel a fair distance. Best hour in the sky we have spent. Lovely Champagne and snack for breakfast after landing in the middle of a farmers field...excellent landing too.
