We had never done a hot air balloon ride so what better place than over the vineyards and olive groves in the Tuscany region? We were celebrating our 40th anniversary and wanted to do something memorable and oh was this it! Our first day was canceled due to rain but the company was able to fit us in the following day with another couple. This is a small family business and you could tell that by the way they treated us. Thank you for memories of a lifetime!

We had a long drive from Castelmuzio to get here, but it was worth it. Three balloons went up together for about a 90 minute flight. We landed in a field and the chase cars brought breakfast including Champagne. It is a family business, and they all acted with an eye toward our enjoyment. I would go back in a heartbeat!

OMG, after a bit of hesitation (fear of heights), I booked this event for our 30th anniversary..and am so glad I did.. Ths was one of the highlights of our 12 day trip to Italy ..the whole family was friendly and professional..the trip was safe,calm and beautiful ..after we landed..we were given meats,cheeses,olive oil and wine..most of which was from the family farm...and I've got to say..some of their cheeses were the best that we tasted during our entire holiday..I would suggest this experience to anyone visiting the Chianti area

Not sure what was more fun, going up in the hot air balloon or hanging out with the Tuscany Ballooning Team. Great family and charming and funny and adorable. The team was so laid back yet professional as you would expect for an adventure of a life time.
After we all gathered at a meeting place in the morning we were shuttled off into the beautiful country side of Tuscany to a short ride were the Balloon was being assembled and after a few basic instructions we were in the air and my heart rate was going up as rapidly as the balloon. After about a 1000' in the air the Tuscany sun started to peak over the hill tops and light up the Tuscany valley like an early wake up call for all the local wine farmers.
My wife and I were arm and arm as we enjoyed the tranquil silence and the warm breeze on our face, we could have stayed up there all day and night.
As we descended towards the landing area was interesting as well as we flew across the tree tops for a bit and then for a gentle landing were we were greeted with a Mimosa breakfast of homegrown cheese, meats, and melons while the crew packed up there gear.
See you next time when we our in Italy for sure, highly recommended and worth ever penny.

Our family of 6 had the pleasure of experiencing Tuscany Ballooning in early September. Pascal and the entire Goldschmidt family were so accommodating! It truly is a family business. They work together so beautifully. It was an exhilarating ride and great way to see Tuscany. The breakfast that they served afterwards was delicious! We even enjoyed their own olive oil that is from the olive trees on their property. You couldn't ask for a better way to spend a morning in Italy. Such a neat family. I promise you will enjoy the ride and getting to know these nice people.
