A fantastic experience!! Many thanks to Nicolas and Julien for providing an awesome excursion. Surprise birthday hot air balloon flight for my wife at sunrise - communication prior to scheduled flight date/time was excellent; meeting point in Amboise was easily found/accessed as per map provided. Flight experience was incredible - spectacular views over Loire Valley taking in several chateaus/gardens. Greeted on landing with sparkling grape juice to toast with morning croissant which was a welcome touch! Flight certificate on landing which was another great detail. Highly recommend.

We surprised my husband for his birthday with a hot air balloon ride. We were all a little bit nervous, never having done it before, but the crew from Balloon Revolution couldn’t have been more pleasant and comforting. They immediately greeted my youngest son (13 yrs), who was the most anxious of all of us, which I thought was such a nice gesture! We shared the basket with another couple and they were so sweet and friendly! The flight was simply amazing, breathtaking. We flew right by Chenonceau, seeing this divine chateau from a completely unique viewpoint. The pilot (Kevin in our case) spoke perfect English and explained everything that was going on, answering questions and preparing us for every part of the flight (even throwing in a bit of humor to keep nerves calm the whole time). I can highly recommend this company and experience! We really loved it and it made for the perfect way for our family to celebrate my husband’s birthday!! Thank you, BalloonRevolution crew!

On a Loire Valley road trip, my friend suggested we take a balloon flight. Now, I'm petrified of heights but I've always been mesmerised by the sight of hot air balloons and wanted to experience a flight in one, so I told myself to put my big girl panties on and go for it. I'm so glad I did.

We met at 6.45am in Amboise - there were probably about 8 of us - and were driven to the take off site about a mile away. We watched as the balloon was inflated and climbed into the wicker basket. That was the hardest bit for me - I have pretty short legs and it wasn't that easy to do. Once in the basket, we took off before I really had time to think about being nervous. The views as we rose were incredibly beautiful - the nearby Loire river and then the trees and then the sunrise came into view. I can honestly say that I was not scared once. Not a single nervous moment. It was just the most graceful, beautiful, incredible experience. We rose and fell with the air streams, expertly done by the balloon pilot. We flew over the Chenonceaux chateaux and it was just breathtaking. When it was time to land, the process was simple and touch down created hardly any impact. Again, climbing out was a challenge for me, but I was helped by the others in the basket. We then all helped to deflate and roll up the balloon before having a glass of non-alcoholic bubbly and croissants, followed by receiving our certificates and then being driven back to Amboise. Absolutely fabulous experience.

Having never taken a balloon ride, we did not know what to expect. Our experience was absolutely amazing. Kevin and Tiffany were wonderful hosts and kept us fully informed throughout the process. Kevin's English is very good and he provided a relaxed and humorous atmosphere during the ride. Don't miss this opportunity if you're in the Loire Valley.

Magical! Really truly madly magical! The experience from booking (thank you Nicolas and Kevin for making my dreams come true) to set up location at Chaumont, the thrilling and peaceful ride itself and the champagne toast with sunset back drop. WOW!!! Thank you Kevin and Tiffany for the amazing efforts for a magical event. Merci beaucoup!!!!

We'd asked to schedule for the evening of 3 July but the weather was not going to cooperate so they called and asked if we could schedule for the following morning. We helped prep the balloon, then went up over the Amboise Castle and along the Loire River over fields, vineyards, and forests. When Kevin turned off the burners, it was so amazingly quiet to enjoy the sunrise. We also all helped to wrap up the ballon upon setting down and then enjoyed juice and pastries. Definitely a wonderful way to complete a bucket list item!

Had the most amazing balloon ride. Unfortunately due to a language misunderstanding we went to the wrong take off point so missed many of the sights however just to see chenoncau from the air made it worthwhile. I imagine if you took off from amboise it would have been even more amazing. An absolute must on the bucket list

If you want to make a very special memory while visiting the Loire Valley, be sure to go on a hot air balloon ride with Balloon Revolution. The ride was comfortable, safe, and afforded us bird's-eye-views of some of the majestic Loire Valley chateaux. We loved every minute. Nicolas, our pilot, was an expert who was friendly and knowledgeable about the area and piloting the balloon. I was amazed at the peace and silence of the ride. Don't pass up this opportunity and be sure to fly with this company.

we were so happy with our pilot(kevin) was young skilled and informative His navigator(stephan)was on track and brought me wild flowers on landing. What a wonderful ride very scenic over the two famous chateaus and countryside estates forests and rivers. We even had a family waving to us before we landed and came to the back of their property to watch us land. everything was so perfect What a bucket list item to fly over the loire valley chateaus in a balloon…don't miss it
