Full description

Experience the magical feeling of flying high above the cypress-studded hills and vineyards of Tuscany on a hot air balloon flight from Florence. The adventure begins as soon as you arrive at the take-off field, which is dependent on weather conditions and will be provided to you the day before your flight. Watch as the balloons are inflated and prepared before your eyes. Once the pilots have done their final checks and given you a briefing about flight safety, climb into the balloon basket and begin your float to altitudes of up to 2,000 feet (6,000 meters). Glide over valleys and castles, enjoying breathtaking panoramic views of the rolling scenery below. Each flight offers a different experience, as the balloons are directed by the breeze. Upon landing, enjoy a glass of sparkling champagne and a breakfast with local products before the transfer shuttle back to your take-off site.

Federico and his crew were absolutely amazing. They were professional, accommodating, and the balloon ride was spectacular. It’s amazing how serene and beautiful the views are from the air. I highly recommend taking the trip. They only do one flight a day, so book early. Also, Get Your Guide needs to update the address.

From being met on entry to the vineyard to returning back to the take off site we where looked after exceptionally. The team took many pictures and videos and share them with all passengers. I took my daughter (age 10) and it was an experience of a lifetime followed by a wonderful Prosecco breakfast in the fields of Tuscany.

It is an amazing experience surely one should go for it. The pilot was amazing, explained the process to us and made a great landing. He explained how much ever is the wind speed we will not feel it since we are going with its speed and are part of the wind in a way
