My wife and I celebrated our 30th in Montepulciano. A 30 minute drive to Montisi.

We had never done this before. They explained everything and it was the single most memorable part of the entire 3 weeks. We had a private ride with another couple and it was amazing to see Tuscany from that view. Just indescribable.

We landed in a field. So smooth and there was breakfast and sparkling wine.

Just perfect!

I have flown five times with Virgin Balloons from Montisi, and the pilot does a very unusual manoeuvre which is 360* slow spin where you take in the breath taking beauty of Tuscany, as far as I am concerned, ballooning is the ONLY way to see one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Worth every penny, and the crew and back up staff are very helpful. Going again next year, guaranteed.

W e flew with Chris at dawn this morning, the first decent flying day in weeks.chris and the noire crew are very professional, knowledgeable and simply nice people. The countryside is magnificent. W e saw six deer, lots of pheasants and a wild boar. I recommend flyers find Montisi the day before flight in the daylight. Also, dress warmly and enjoy helping launch and recover balloon. Montisi is a very nice little town, not t ll touristy. W highly recommend this experience

Our flight on October 15,2012 had to be cancelled due to windy weather. For some reason we had a delay in getting our refund. Maryse at the balloon company worked tirelessly to clear the path and make sure we got our refund. I feel like we are now close friends 4000 miles apart. Maryse Pen and our tour guide Antonella are two wonderful reason to stay in Montisi if you visit Tuscany. My friends and I can't wait to go back. Olive oil tours, cheese tours, wine tours and great sightseeing. They are all there along with a great B&B, a great restaurant and a super friendly bar. Five stars for Montisi

Due to weather with high winds, we were unable to fly on our scheduled day. Have been trying to obtain refund since end of October without success . Our travel agent booked the trip and I paid for it on PayPal but I still have not received my refund. Can you please help?
