We set off from Lucca at 5:00 am to meet our guides north of Florence. , which was over an hour drive from Lucca. Our tour meeting point had been changed from 7 minutes from our Airbnb, which was disappointing but couldn’t be helped due to the weather. The balloon ride was smooth and felt safe. We were a bit nervous about getting 17 people off the ground in one basket but both the take off and landing went off without a hitch. Our pilot, Orlando, was very informative and professional. One of our friends is very afraid of heights but said he never felt anxious during the ride. The beauty of the Tuscan landscape is difficult to describe using words alone. I wish I could attach pictures. It was well worth the early start and cost. I would highly recommend it as an essential part of the Tuscan experience. We landed fairly gracefully in a farmers field and were treated to an awesome champagne breakfast. It felt like such an adventure. We would all highly recommend it:)

The communication was bad. We made contact with the hot air balloon organization in Italy ourselves. We would hear 1 day in advance where we had to go. That didn't happen. We had ordered the flight in Lucca, but because of the wind we went to Florence. That was an hour away for us. The address with the pile up was then clear by mail. Obviously again unclear in which hot air balloon we had to board, but we had a good speed with very nice crew! The landing was good, but a bit out of the direction of the crew, they couldn't find us at first. But after a long wait and a delicious breakfast in the various jeeps, we returned to the pick-up point!

Kind of expensive but super enjoyable the guide was super char,ing and made the whole experience super enjoyable, it was about 1 hrs long ride but it felt like it went so fast, super peaceful and enjoyable gotta do it here the view in Italy is amazing

Excellent way to end out trip. Our pilot was very experienced and taught us the basics of hot air ballooning. The view was incredible and once we landed we had an amazing breakfast in the field. Would recommend to everyone.

A fantastic experience to float over the beautiful landscape of Tuscany while the sun rises - can highly recommend it to others.
