This family-run business offers an incredible Tuscan experience that doesn't exist anywhere else. The breakfast was a pleasant surprise and featured cheeses made on the family farm, and the hot air balloon experience included a great attention to making sure all of the riders had an excellent time. We highly recommend the venture out to the Tuscan countryside.

There was 6 of us who got to experience the amazing hot air balloon ride. The whole staff was great. The breakfast after in the field was a definite treat.
Thank you so much.

We really loved our balloon experience. Pascal was a brilliant pilot, taking us up high for expansive views and down so low you could almost pick a grape off the vine. We loved the cheese, meats and prosecco afterward too. Special mention to Pascal’s wife, whose name I’ve forgotten (sorry!). She was an absolute sweetheart.

A wonderful experience and highly recommended.

This was most definitely the highlight of our stay in Tuscany. We had the great honor of flying with Pascal, which was a kind and lightly humoristic pilot. He made us feel very save during the whole flight, so all we had to worry about, was just to enjoy the experience of flying over an early morning Tuscany land.
It was absolutely beautiful and I can at any time recommend this for people visiting the Chianti-area.
What a rush!
Great thanks to Pascal and his team for the great experience and the wonderful service before, during and after.

This was one of the most memorable parts of our trip to Tuscany in July 2018. Great customer service and they made us feel instantly at ease upon arrival. There were 8 passengers and 1 pilot per balloon which was comfortable and the pilot was extremely professional and friendly. This was the first time I had been in a hot air balloon, and doing so in Tuscany has set the bar very high for any future rides! It was such a beautiful mesmerizing experience. Perfect length of time and gorgeous sunrise shots. All of the staff were just lovely. We were hugging by the end of it. And the lovely breakfast spread once we landed of meats, fruits, breads, cheeses and champagne was icing on the cake. I would FOR SURE recommend Tuscany Ballooning to anyone vacationing in the area, even if you're afraid of heights. It's WORTH it!!!!
