Its was such a wonderfull experience. The pilot and crew were very experienced and they did their best to make this memorable.
It's so peacefull, and the cold didn't bother us, because you're going with the wind and the views are amazing! Wouldn't have wanted to miss it!
So Excellent! What a nice view of the Chianti and Tuscan countrysides! I highly recommend it.
It was a beautiful experience! Soaring over the sunflower fields, the stream, and even skimming treetops was a thrill! :-
Excellent all the way around...Communication, meeting point, the flight was SPECTACULAR, crew and team were friendly, and the breakfast afterwards topped off an excellent excursion.
Wonderful experience, especially the entire crew, genuinely a first class family organization who make every effort to please. I felt they took great pride in their work. I highly recommend this experience as the best hour we spent in Italy
my Guest Rahul Aggarwal book this tour for his wife on her birthday. Thanks Viator team to make their day so special.
This was a dream of mine and a bucket list item checked off. The sites were breath taking would highly recommend for whom ever wants a life time experience.
This was the culmination of our trip! The original day selected was rescheduled due to high winds, but it was quickly rescheduled for our last day! Three generations enjoyed a ride of a lifetime!
The balloon company was very good! The flight was perfect. Unlike one other balloon flight I have gone on, this one had all ready to go when we arrived. The landing was fine and we had a very nice champagne breakfast in the field where we landed. The bread, cheeses and fruit were mostly, if not all from the folks that ran the flight. They were very pleasant. I would do this again and again. I definitely recommend the tour operator and Viator was good to book them through as well. No hitches at all.
It was a surprise for my wife and we both loved it. We saw the Tuscany sunrise and had a very pleasant ride over Tuscany. The views were spectacular! There was a weather forecast issue and they were able to accommodate a change. I would recommend this to anyone. We had a pickup from the hotel which worked very well. The pilot was very nice and professional.
This trip was absolutely awesome. We had a great time and after the ride they provided wine, cheese and fruit.
First Class All the way !!!! Well done and what an experience. Bot to be missed . The views are great and safety is paramount.

This was an absolutely amazing experience! The crew was accommodating from start to end, by giving us helpful directions, making sure we felt comfortable about the procedures, and getting to know us at the end with delicious snacks and drinks after landing. Our pilot was an award winning balloonist, which made us feel a lot more confident about the safety. The view is breathtaking and so peaceful at the top. Make sure to wear covered shoes and pants, because you may have to walk through some overgrown fields, depending on landing opportunities. The early wake-up was definitely worth it! I am definitely going to write another glowing review on their specific website.
This was one of the most beautiful experiences we have ever had, floating on the wind at dawn watching the sun rising over the Tuscan Mountains and gliding down the valley was such a pleasure, we did not know which way to look next it was just all beautiful and breathtaking. We did come down with a bump in a sunflower field but that just added to the fun and no one got hurt. I can thoroughly recommend doing this if only once in your life.
Memorable trip. Started reasonably on time. Much fanfare as the balloons were being filled with hot air. Then we boarded. Then lift-off. We drifted about 500ft above the ground, the sun rose in the East, and the shadow from the balloon was visible on the ground. A beautiful way to start the day.
1. It's not cold! The heat from the burners keeps everyone warm.
2. It's not windy. One is travelling at the speed of the wind so one does not feel the wind.
Very disappointing. The view is just OK from the balloon. The countryside is beautiful but go to the top of a hill and look out over the valley for the same view. There were 3 balloons going up at the same time so when we saw all these people standing around, we figured they were flying in the other balloons. We had 6 people in our basket, plus the captain. Could not even turn around in the basket as it was so tight. Should limit it to four persons which is why I gave it 3 stars.
