Flying with us can be an original gift idea! You could take the chance to fly in a hot air balloon for an anniversary, a birthday, your honeymoon, or even ask your partner’s hand in marriage while you are aboard together! In any case it will be an unforgettable experience!!!Besides, flying in a hot air balloon gives you the unique possibility of observing the world from a particular point of view. The wind carries you safely and in the meanwhile you can take photos or videos of our extraordinary panorama at 360 degrees! Charming ancient villages like San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, or Volterra, slide gently below your feet; or even better still incomparable Siena and Florence! Fascinating and suggestive images are yours, such as only our artistic cities can offer.Launching takes place half an hour after sunrise or two hours before sunset. After landing we traditionally celebrate with a bottle of wine and a Chianti breakfast. The flight can take up to an hour or more. The duration of the entire tour takes about three hours including transportation. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing: tennis shoes and trousers are preferable, as landing points are often in fields.We organize group excursions, as well as exclusive balloon rides for two!Call us!!!

꼭 다시 하고 싶은 경험이네요 강추합니다:)) 이른 아침 시골마을 위라 정말 평화롭고 아름답고, 바람이 이끄는대로 가다가 전혀 예상치 못한 데에 착지하는 것도 재밌었어요. 날씨가 좋을 땐 1000 미터 상공까지도 간다고 하더라고요. 피렌체나 시에나 갈 때 날 좋은 아침에 들러보세요:) It was a wonderful... read more

This is an opportunity to thank my cool Hot Air Balloon pilot, Vastano Ivan for the luxury of being aloft the hot air balloon. Fortunately the weather was in my favor and we were a small group that had a sheer enjoyment over beautiful and picturesque Tuscany, Italy. To future adventures & beyond. Grazie & Evviva!

We had an amazing flight with Ivan, it really was a fantastic experience. We felt safe, relaxed and confident in our pilot and spent over an hour travelling over the Chianti vineyards and villages outside of Florence. I can thoroughly recommend the experience. The three of us were all thrilled when we saw the baby deer running towards the basket... More

My wife and I recently spent 9 days in the Tuscany area celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. One of the activities we did was a balloon ride with Ivan. It was nothing short of amazing! The weather was really perfect and of coarse Ivan had nothing to do with that. However, everything else he DID have control over and he... More
