Two days ago,we had this fabulous opportunity to fly in a hot air ballon. That was really impressive ! We've seen the landscape around Ambroise with all these incredible autumn colors and an amazing view of the Ambroise castle. During our flight also we appreciated the Clos Lucé, the pagode of Chanteloup, and to fly over the forest and the... More

My wife and I thought that this would be a once in a lifetime experience to take a balloon ride over the Chateaus in the Loire Valley. Notice how all of the literature pictures their balloons over Chateau de Chenonceau. We met at their office and the pilot blow up a simple balloon and let it go which he said... More

What a wonderful way to celebrate my big event birthday; Thierry was just charming-many thanks. It is certainly an experience not to be missed; have never done it before and was fortunate to have the amazing views with an experienced company. I felt like a bird soaring over the trees!

In September my husband and I went on a morning hot air balloon flight with Touraine Montgolfiere. Everything about this trip was perfect! The woman who answers the phone was very helpful, even though English is not her primary language. We arrived at the office at 7:20 am, and the employees were so organized! We were the only people who... More

Touraine Montgolfiere is a great company and provided the highlight experience of our trip. The staff (Frank Cousins) was timely, charming, and the right balance of fun and professional. This hot air balloon ride was beautiful, peaceful, and thrilling. If you go to Amboise, be sure to book this trip. It is worth every penny.

If taking a balloon ride in the Loire Valley of France is not on your bucket list,it should be.The exeleration of soaring high above the castles and chateaus is amazing.The staff is very professional and safety conscience.

We were in the Loire valley and decided to book a flight as part of our 40th anniversary celebrations. Words cannot express how amazing this experience is. From take off to landing the flight was incredible. With breathtaking views along the Loire. There was no real sense of movement as we rose into the sky only the ground falling away... More

My new fiance booked a private tour with this company. They are very professional and made the whole experience outstanding. We have never been on a hot air balloon before and had a little anxiety before the flight. However, the crew had no hesitations and told us he had over 2,000 flights. Thus, we knew we were in good hands.... More

My parents and I signed up for a private balloon ride in November. Since it was on the edge of the season we knew there was a chance we might not be able to go up. Driving to the meeting spot the morning of our scheduled ride the fog was so thick we couldn't believe they hadn't called to cancel.... More
