Activity tour in Tuscany
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.
