Cancel due to weather

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!

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

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. 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...

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!
