We had the thrill of a lifetime on our flight with the fantastic crew at Touraine Montgolfiere! The views were spectacular, and we felt safe in the hands of seasoned pilot Franck Cousin. Everyone working for the company was very friendly and extremely professional. This experience is highly recommended and a great deal in my opinion! We took the flight while on our honeymoon and were blessed to have good weather on a beautiful late afternoon for a ride that ended as the sun was setting. I would highly recommend paying the extra money for the refundable ticket option if you'll only be in the Loire Valley for a short period of time. We had non-refundable tickets and had to postpone the trip one day because there was bad weather the day we had originally booked for. The staff was amazing in working with us to reschedule our flight and did everything possible to make sure we wouldn't miss out on the fun. The day we rescheduled for was our only other option, so we felt very fortunate that things worked out. We were the only couple on the flight that didn't speak French fluently, but Stephanie, Franck, and the rest of the staff made us feel comfortable and gave us everything we needed to know in English. The flight itself was incredible! We definitely felt nervous to begin with because the balloon goes up very high to start, but Franck made the ride extremely smooth, and we felt very comfortable once he brought us down to a lower altitude. He was such an outstanding pilot! We flew over the Chateau Royal d'Amboise, and Franck was skilled enough to slowly make a complete 360-degree turn with the balloon so everyone had a great view of the chateau. His landing was perfectly smooth, too. Everyone on the staff made sure we had a great time. It was fun seeing how excited they all genuinely were to see us enjoy the flight, especially considering how often they do this. We had what felt like a "post-game party" at the end with champagne, laughs, and good conversation. It was a delightful experience that we'll always treasure. Thank you to Touraine Montgolfiere for giving us a bucket list experience on our honeymoon that we'll talk about for the rest of our lives!

What an experience ?! It was worth getting up that early :) We flew over the Loire, the morning fog was fading, the sun was rising, Chenonceau was standing proudly ! After visiting it from the inside, what a luck to see it from the sky ! The crew from Touraine Montgolfière is really professional, nice and you can even be part of it for a couple of hours because you get to help to set up and pack the balloon. They are also full of stories and anecdotes about the area or the sky! If you want an original activity and to see this beautiful region from another point of you, I advise you strongly to do it with them !

The pilot makes you feel very comfortable during the flight, and we you land they offer you a glass of champagne and french cheese:). You flight at different levels, even so close to the ground that you are able to see the local wildlife.

Bucket list! Wow, this was so great. We took the morning flight, best way to start the day. Our pilot was great, professional, funny and I felt safe the entire time. We had 75 minutes flight time, and enjoyed every peaceful minute of it. The ground crew is fantastic and it is really well organized.

Amazing trip! Antonio was a fantastic pilot and was very kind pointing out interesting sights in English and keeping my wife and I involved when we were the only non-French speakers on the trip. As someone who has a fear of heights, Antonio made me feel very comfortable throughout the trip, and I would recommend this experience to anyone visiting the Loire Valley. The flight itself is an hour long, but give yourself another hour and a half afterwards for the trip to wind down and make your way back to the Aerogare (my wife and I ended up having to run to make our train back to Paris).
