- ÜBER UNS
A flight with breathtaking views over Tuscany will immerse you in sheer delight. The gas balloons capture the imagination, and each flight is a unique and magical voyage taking you floating over the landscapes, castles, statuesque villas, olive groves and endless stretches of vineyards that are scattered about the Tuscan region. This floating Tour of Tuscany is an absolute must on your list of life experiences.
Your adventure will start early in the morning with the exact time to be determined by the time of year and the weather conditions.
You meet the balloon operator at the lift off point , which is normally in Chianti rvery close to Florence.
You will have to reach the lift off point normally by 6-7.00 a.m. And it is easily reached from both North and South. Safety is the number one priority so we fly only on the calmest weather conditions, and the pilot has the final decision. The balloon ride will last anywhere up to an hour and a half. After landing enjoy a lovely Tuscan breakfast with ‘Prosecco’ that is the Tuscan version of champagne, pastries, hams, cheese, only the best Tuscan products. After this you will be taken back to the lift off point where your car will be parked.
If you do have your own transport , after the balloon ride you can take a drive through the Chianti countryside. If you don’t have your own car but would like to do this, please ask us to quote you on the cost of having your own personal driver and we can create a lovely day for you.

We would like to again let you know what a spectacular adventure we had on our flight over Tuscany. On all of our travels, the two best adventures have been the mule trip down the Grand Canyon and our flight with you. The memory of that flight will last forever. You provided a great idea of what to expect though what you didn't convey is what a masterful pilot you are - you did things I didn't think were possible. Our skimming just a foot or so over the wheat fields and then just over that small tree next to that road sign was pure skill. And it is obvious how much you love to fly.
