      This is a MUST DO in Tuscany!
      Three of us went with about a dozen others on this incredible journey in Chianti! The Aeronaut/pilot was very knowledgeable and friendly and fun to be with. He explained everything as we went along, which was wonderful to know. The experience was so amazing. Very quiet and comfortable. We had a champagne breakfast afterward. So much fun. This is a MUST DO in Tuscany! The views are enchanting!

      Once in a lifetime experience
      Once in a lifetime experience. Fantastic customer service, and the team set up a breakfast after the flight in the middle of a Tuscan vineyard for our team. Could not recommend more.

      One of the best days of my life
      This is an unforgettable experience! The takeoff moment is just breathtaking, Toscana is beautiful from above, the feeling of being in the air just lifted by the hot air balloon is amazing. The crew knows exactly what they are doing. Everything went smoothly and I felt completely safe. After landing we had a breakfast just in the field with fresh pastries, bread and local cheese and prosciutto! I highly recommend trying this experience and this company. They are the best!

      Highly recommend this company
      Balloon Team Tuscany was wonderful on our hot air balloon ride! We were a group of 7 people and did a shared ride. Out younger kids had many questions about how the balloon works and functions - the team was very knowledgeable and addressed all of their questions. The actual ride was gorgeous and smooth over lovely tuscan region. The landing was a bit bumpy but was expected...the ride took about 30 minutes which was followed by breakfast of fresh cheeses, meats and breads from local farms along with a champagne toast. They provided juices for the kids! The price is a bit much, but it was worth the ride. Highly recommend this company and doing this if you are ever in this area!

      Very special day
      I booked a group 13 friends July 7, 2022. We had an incredible time. The management team was always very responsive to my emails. They were friendly and made us all feel very comfortable and safe. The entire experience was beyond what any of us anticipated. What a great day with a yummy breakfast and champagne toast at the end!!! It was a bucket list item for many of us and was just incredibly special! Thank you for making this such a wonderful day. We will definitely be back!!

      Brilliant
      I went on a flight for the very first time and although there was very little wind and we didn’t travel far, the views over San Casciano were amazing and the flight felt so smooth and safe, I really enjoyed it. I went with my 11 year old son, who was just hypnotised by the experience. Would definitely go again, a must in Florence.

    Our pilot ( the x pharmacist) was hilarious and completely made our trip. The scenery was spectacular and the views to die for. If you’ve ever wondered how a hot air balloon lands book this experience.

    Showed at 6. Two possible dep points: Siena & near Florence - depends on winds. 6am meet. Best part of our trip! Even the bfast at end was excellent: great pastry, charcuterie, juice, proseco. Break the ice early with pilot and fellow travelers, everyone has a great time!

    We loved this experience! We were lucky to have wonderful weather and views. Although you need to get to the site really early, and the specific site will not be confirmed until the night before, it’s totally worth it!! The views are spectacular and the staff is very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. I am not a height person but the ride is so gentle and peaceful I would definitely do it again. The Prosecco and breakfast were very good! Chantilly bread super delicious. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes as landing can be in a surprise spot! Thanks to our guide Guido from Matera!

    I had a tremendous time flying with this company! It was a wonderful experience and the views were incredible! Great people and great service all the way around. If you've ever wanted to fly in a hot air balloon, this is your golden opportunity.

    I'm sure the balloon ride is lovely... If you get to go on it. We woke up at 3:30am and travelled by car for over an hour to the meeting point only to be called 5minutes before we were due to meet, saying that they were cancelling the flight. We asked for the next day but weren't told this was also a no go until 8pm that night, leaving us no time to arrange something else. To top it off once I asked for my money back all contact stopped and I only managed to receive a refund over 2weeks later meaning we were nearly £500 short on our honeymoon with nothing to show for it. Still very upset and disappointed. If its one of the highlights of your trip and you can't afford to lose £500, don't take the risk!

    I believe that before writing, one must realize what one is writing. The flight was canceled due to bad weather, security comes first. Those who do not fly receive a refund, it is automatic, no service, no money. But the lady perhaps needed to let off steam, we can't repay a credit card in a few minutes, it takes bureaucratic time. We always propose the alternative day, but only if the weather is good, and we can only evaluate it the night before the flight, to be as safe as possible. You didn't have patience, that's just the problem. I hope he can fly soon, only then he will understand.

    Our Balloon ride was fantastico! Our pilots Roberto and Francesco were so polite and very handsome. Roberto has been flying balloons for 10 years after a balloon landed in his yard and he helped to put the balloon away. Our driver Frederick picked us up to take us to the balloon, the weather was perfect and we got a special surprise of flying over Florence and then into the Tuscan countryside. I would highly recommended balloon team italia very professional and so polite.

    The only concern was if we were to fly or not was delivered too late in the day, but I am sure they just wanted to be sure we would be safe

    If you ever wanted to take a hot air balloon ride this is the place to do it!. Starting before dawn the balloon team has everyone arrive early while the balloons are prepared and then you climb into the basket and liftoff to the beautiful Tuscan countryside. We were airborne before sunrise and go to see the sun creep up over the Tuscany hills! As if on cue the roosters on the farms below crowed just as the sun came up! It was so quiet and peaceful in the balloon with only a slight rushing sound of the wind. Our pilot was Guido and he was excellent. He apparently was the Italian representative in the World Balloon championship competition over the Austrian alps previously so we were in good hands! He talked us through everything and made us feel comfortable with the experience. The sparking wine, cheese and meats after landing was a nice touch as well ! Definitely worth getting up up and away!

    You pay 250EUR per person for one hour flight, starting very early at 6AM. This gives you rare possibility to see the sunrise above picturesque Tuscan hills. From the booking through helping you reach the spot (20km driving from Florence) the team is very responsive and helpful. Flight itself is very safe offering you much more aesthetic than adrenalin joy. We reached about 2000 feet in hight. You can see remote domes of Florence and numerous wild animals below. We were happy to be accompanied by few more balloons in the air. After landing (nothing stressful) we were hosted with little Tuscan breakfast (local cheese and meat cuts), with sparkling wine. On the way back to the cars we stopped for the coffee in cosy road side bar.

    It was our family's first time in a Hot Air Balloon. We were a little nervous at first but once you get up in the sky and look over the Tuscany Region you forget about being nervous! It was breathtaking! The Balloon Team were excellent---after the ride there was a Champagne Breakfast. Great way to start the day in Tuscany!
