I had always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon. My family decided that I should do it in Tuscany to celebrate my birthday. My husband called them from our hotel in Florence to make the plans. They suggested we go up the next day! One follow-up e-mail later, all was in order. They arranged for a cab... More

It was great to make a balloon flight with Tuscany Ballooning. We received lots of information up front and reservation and booking all went very smooth. Pascal gave a lot of information about the area during the flight and it was amazing to fly over Tuscany and see all the vineyard and small castles.

I tried for the fisrt time the ballooning overthe Tuscany and it was perfect. The organisation, the position to easily find them, the flight very quiet and relaxing and the breakfast after all with delicious frut or cheese with a glass of prosecco....everything perfect and the managers are verykind.....

From arranging the trip months in advance to the final champagne toast after our flight this was a first class experience! Many thanks to Pascal and his team. I had to set up a flight for 16 people to celebrate the life of a great friend. Initially, I worked with a travel agent, but after reviewing the price decided I... More

There was a storm on Sunday night which meant the trip was cancelled for Monday morning but they sorted out our flight for the following morning with Ivan. We both felt safe, relaxed and confident with our pilot who made it really enjoyable, Seeing... More

Let me start by saying that I was really anxious about hot air balloons, I am terrified of heights, cannot even do ladders, so you can imagine what sort of images kept flashing in my mind. As soon as I met Pascal and his lovely wife, I started feeling better. They are calm and reassuring, and as soon as we... More
