Me and my wife just returned from this amazing experience and I rushed to put this up on trip advisor because of how wonderful it was. The whole day felt like a family experience, Stefano the pilot is an extremely sweet man and a very well trained balloon pilot ( hes been doing this for over 20 years and has not had any accidents yet). The trip lasts between 45 to 90 minutes depending on how long it takes to find a suitable landing and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking. At some points you are high up in the air looking down at the beautiful vineyards while at other times you are only a few meters gliding above the trees, giving the effect of a scene from a movie. After the landing ( which was very smooth thanks to Stefano and his team), Stefano and his partner Gianna take you to their house for a wonderful breakfast, mostly made with local ingredients ( the cheese was incredible). The food was delicious and Stefano and his entire staff keep you entertained and are all really nice and friendly. Stefano himself is a very well cultured man and knows alot about the history of the area (we happened to land near a road that was thousands of years old and he took the time to explain all the history behind it which was very interesting). The team was also nice enough to recommend some good places to get wine in the area. Overall just an amazing experience and the highlight of our trip so far! I will defintely be back again and will recommend Idea Balloon to all my friends visiting italy as a safe and fun way to see tuscany from the skies.
