Amazing first time experience
Aug. 2020
We arrived at the site with 20-25 min in advance, it was really interesting to see how they were preparing all the balloons for the flight.

The people are really polite, nice and funny.
Everything was perfectly timed, no delay.

Our Pilot was so kind to explain how everything works (and I guess they got this asked very frequently), telling some jokes, and quick chat.

As soon as the fly starts the staff regularly check the speed, the height, visibility, and position between each other, which gave me feeling of security and that we were in really good hands.

The weather was a bit cloudy, not perfect, but the staff made sure didn't affect too much the experience for us, good job !

The landing part was really funny, bouncing multiple times until we stopped completely, followed by a quick breakfast and champagne, then they drove us back to the starting site.

Guido was really open and available to respond to all my questions pre/post experience, and really quickly.

I would really like to find something bad to say, but its challenging, really.

Since the weather its really unpredictable, as suggested by others: book this for your early days in Tuscany, so if something gets cancelled by bad weather you'll able to attend the next days.

Would I recommend the experience ? absolutely yes
Would I re-do the experience ? Yes, with better weather conditions
What else to say ? The experience is worth to money.

I don't understand why you write a review when the weather is bad, it doesn't depend on us. The reimbursement is automatic after the canellization, it is enough to have only patience. It is easy to understand.

Fabulous! Flying high (and low) with the professionals
This family business knows what it's doing and what the customer wants - in our case we didn't want to lift a finger, we wanted to be treated like royalty, by polite professional people, who did things on time, safely and with excitement.
We got all that!
Easy to find location, sent to us the day before by email.
The equipment was clean, safe and comfortable.
The ride itself was over beautiful Tuscan countryside, and we swooped down over woodlands, and up high (over 3000 feet), watching the sunrise (we chose the 7am start, thinking the 6am start would be too early).
Landing was super smooth, followed by a delicious breakfast made from local produce, whilst watching the team put away the balloon.
Then they drove us back to our car.
If you're thinking of doing this - just do it!

Honeymoon disappointment
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.

Balloon Flight over Tuscany
Jul. 2019 • Family
This was such a beautiful and memorable experience! The booking process was very easy and the communication was really impressive. The weather prohibited the balloons from flying on the day we were scheduled and they did a great job getting us in the balloon a different day. The transportation was easy and professional. They picked us up in our apartment in Florence and dropped us at the airport afterwards. The actual ride was perfect. We will remember it forever. My husband dropped his cellphone in the car that drove us to our van that was taking us to the airport. Robert drove the phone to us at the Florence airport. AMAZING. This balloon trip was the highlight of our trip to Italy.

We Fly Over Tuscany
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

Stunning experience over beautiful Tuscan countryside!
Oct. 2018 • Couples
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!

Amazing, perfectly organized and run experience
Jul. 2017 • Couples
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.
