My family of 5 recently had the experience of a balloon flight in Tuscany and it was fabulous. Without doubt an amazing way to see the countryside. Our wonderful pilot, Chris obviously had an enormous amount of experience. He was clearly concentrating the entire time but was able to still chat to the passengers and point out aspects of the...

This was our first ballooning experience ever. We were so glad to have done it in Tuscany and with this company. The original booking was cancelled due to weather. We were upset but later appreciated the concern for safety. Our pilot was very experienced and very informative. The flight itself was unbelievable. You truly are floating in mid-air. The views...

My girlfriend and I planned this part of our trip around Ballooning in Tuscany and we had an amazing experience ! We started in Rome then chose Montisi as it was very close to the launch site - everyone in the town was so friendly and the town itself was beautiful ! On the day of the flight, there wasn't...

We loved our hot air balloon flight with Chris and Claire, it was simply stunning and a really magical experience. We had a great 10 days honeymoon in Italy and this was our last day and really was a highlight. Watching the sun rise over the countryside, seeing deer running through fields, watching the hill top towns waking up and... More

We were a group of eight, ages 9 to over 80.  A few were apprehensive at the prospect of dangling hundreds of feet over the ground by nylon and hot air, but all were completely comfortable in flight, and all entirely thrilled for having had the experience. The views and elegant post-flight refreshments are well and accurately depicted in other... More

Love the hot air balloon experience with Chris as our pilot! Hardly felt anything when we landed and the entire experience is quite magical. We felt safe during the entire trip and enjoyed every moment of it. It was so quiet and peaceful up in the sky and being able to see the region from a different perspective is worth... More

From the very start of booking, scheduling and being updated with flight info, the whole experience was amazing, especially of course the most important bit of the flight itself. If your visiting Tuscany then this is simply the best possible way you can see the landscape in all its glory. The early morning start gives you a beautiful view of... More

Lovely trip to beautiful Tuscany....sadly balloon flight cancelled because of bad weather. Surprised as not a cloud in the sky and not too windy! Unable to rearrange so totally gutted, appreciate not an exact science but left deflated by the lack of support. Didn't answer any questions just that pilots decision final. Expected better of a company fronting Virgin

Kenneth K, Owner at Ballooning in Tuscany, responded to this review

The ballooning weather is generally very good in Tuscany so is unfortunate that your flight with us had to be cancelled. The pilot has to take his decision based on forecasts the day before the flight and all our weather reports said 'breezy' and unstable when he took the decision to cancel. It is also regrettable that you were unable... More
