Hot air balloon!

Amazing experience over the Tuscan hills with our tour guide. We felt safe, and we’ll taken care of!
A Must do in Florence!!
, Aug 2021
This was one pf the highlight of our trip! When In Florence this is a definite must do! Watching the sunrise from up in the sky, the beautiful Tuscan scenery and then landing to have some champagne with your newfound friends has been the best experience ever! Federico was a great host and an amazing pilot!💯 recommended.
Sunrise from the sky

Everything we had hoped for and more! A wonderful experience watching the sunrise from the sky. Guido, our Pilot, was both charming and exceptionally skilled. Worth every penny for the memory of a lifetime!

Cancel due to weather
, Jan 2020
Unfortunately there was not enough wind and our trip was canceled. The company was very good about responding to my emails and trying to reschedule each day we were in Tuscany but the weather kept the ride from actually happening. We are waiting for our refund now.
Amazing Ride!
, Aug 2019
We took this ride the first day we were in Italy. The scenery was amazing! So beautiful and peaceful! The people who put this ride on were delightful and we wished it could of went on longer. We would definitely recommend this to anyone and will do it again when we go back to Italy!
Service was terrible
, May 2019
Where do I begin? The email from Viator gave an incorrect pickup address even though we paid to be picked up from our hotel. We show up to the address provided by Viator and called the local hot air balloon company to find out the status of the driver. They wanted us to find the driver even though we are the foreigner and client and do not know our way around this town well. The driver eventually finds his way to us and was very cold to us. He was not friendly or welcoming at all. We arrive at the hot air balloon site and he drops us off. The driver told us that we needed to walk through the muddy tall field and refused to drive us any closer. We were not provided any booties to cover our nice shoes and the mud ruined both our shoes today. We walk through the muddy field only to be greeted by an employee laughing at us. We then get on our hot air balloon which was a pleasant experience once on the balloon. But we are very disappointed overall and will never again pay for a transport through Viator. We will instead book a private driver through our hotel.
Pilot experienced, funny, polite...

Pilot experienced, funny, polite. The views are great. You stay 60 Minutes in air. You go up to 900 M or around 3000 feet. Worth the money.

Transportation came and picked us up...
Lindsay W
, Jul 2017
Transportation came and picked us up and took us right to the hot air balloons. We hoped on with another 2 people and had plenty of space to turn around and see many views. We paid extra since my husband is over the weight limit and thus why there was only 4 of us in the hot air balloon. The others had 6 people in them and didn't look like they had as much room to wiggle around, but I know there are different size baskets. It was extremely peaceful and the views were spectacular. We had an easy landing in a wheat field where they set up a table with a beautiful Proseco toast and snacks. Transportation picked us up at the end of the wheat field and drove us back to the hotel. It was well worth every penny. Also, our flight operator was very kind, answered questions and explained what we were seeing without talking the whole time so we come enjoy the peace and serenity. Excellent and we would do this again in a heart beat!
Magical! What a wonderful experience...
