The sweeping vineyards, lush forests and fairy-tale castles of the Loire Valley are even more impressive from above and this 3-hour hot-air balloon experience is the ideal way to enjoy an aerial view. Float over the UNESCO-listed landscapes of the Loire, Indre or Cher Valleys; spot landmarks like the Chateau of Chenonceau or the gardens of Villandry; then toast your safe landing with a glass of Champagne or sparkling grape juice.

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.

A wonderful first time experience. I was so pleased to experience this like my Dad did a few years ago. Professional company with lots of experience, I felt very safe and all ran on time. Loads of time in the air too.

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.

My wife and two children had the best afternoon with Balloon Revolution soaring over the Loire Valley. We saw the beautiful countryside and the amazing chateaus. I would highly recommend this company and this activity when you visit the region.
