This was such a great experience, it was exciting and relaxing at the same time. The view of the chianti hills were breathtaking. Pascal, Kirsten, Oliver and the Team made us feel comfortable and safe throughout the morning. The fresh local cheese, olive oil and prosseco were a lovely end to a great flight!

My friend and I took our other friend for a hot air balloon ride for his 50th birthday present. We had an absolutely wonderful time with Pascal as our pilot as we gently drifted 1400 ft above Tuscany. It was a hazy morning but absolutely breathtaking. Pascal's pilot skills made it seem effortless and we landed without hardly a bump.... More

We had planned this before our trip. Fast and detailed email response made us decide to hire Tuscany ballooning service. We head out around 6.30am from Florence and arrived at the site in half hour. Our pilot, Pascal made us feel comfortable and ensured a super safe flight. We flew up in the air at ease and it was awesome!... More

We had never done a hot air balloon ride so what better place than over the vineyards and olive groves in the Tuscany region? We were celebrating our 40th anniversary and wanted to do something memorable and oh was this it! Our first day was canceled due to rain but the company was able to fit us in the following... More

We had a long drive from Castelmuzio to get here, but it was worth it. Three balloons went up together for about a 90 minute flight. We landed in a field and the chase cars brought breakfast including Champagne. It is a family business, and they all acted with an eye toward our enjoyment. I would go back in a... More

Not sure what was more fun, going up in the hot air balloon or hanging out with the Tuscany Ballooning Team. Great family and charming and funny and adorable. The team was so laid back yet professional as you would expect for an adventure of a life time. After we all gathered at a meeting place in the morning we... More

Our family of 6 had the pleasure of experiencing Tuscany Ballooning in early September. Pascal and the entire Goldschmidt family were so accommodating! It truly is a family business. They work together so beautifully. It was an exhilarating ride and great way to see Tuscany. The breakfast that they served afterwards was delicious! We even enjoyed their own olive oil... More
