While in the air, listen to your pilot’s commentary as you fly over the over the Loire, Indre or Cher Valleys, then swoop over magnificent châteaux like Villandry, Amboise or Chenonceau, and watch the sunrise or sunset over the Loire.

The crew was simply amazing, Julian and the pilot couldn’t have been kinder. What a wonderful experience. There are a few of the companies that take off at the same time which is lovely to see them all in the air.

We scheduled an evening flight but weather conditions were not good so we were offered a morning flight. It was great. The pilot got us off the ground smoothly and back to the earth in one piece. Absolutely fantastic. Other members of my family have already signed up for a flight in a couple of weeks.

We really enjoyed our experience and it was a highlight of our time in France. There was inclement weather so the flight was delayed by one day however the tour operator provided updates via email and by contacting the hotel lobby staff and were very professional. We highly recommend this tour and this company.

We enjoyed much from the event Kevin was a wonderful pilot. Our (7) young daughter loved the experience. The event started just on time. Organization was perfect. It is so exciting to see how the balloon gets its hot air, 5 ppl in a balloon plus pilot. Flight takes an hour. However preparations of before flight and after flight requires a total duration of 3 hours. You know where you begin and do not know where you land, but rest assured the team will follow the balloon and come over to take you. End of flight you receive a certificate which is also cool 😎

This was a bucket list booking for us. However we missed the sunrise as 2 people turned up 20 minutes late. Otherwise it was very nice with beautiful views and we had great Hot Air Balloon weather. My negative was that the pilot did not offer any commentary or point out any sights and therefore the trip was in silence most of the time. Silence is also good for such a peaceful sailing but some commentary or points of interest would have been helpful. We also thought we would be flying over a number of chateaux but this was not the case. Overall it was very nice but I feel the cost outweighed the experience.

It was very disapointing because our guide was to nervous (realy would not recomend) and during the all ride we were on the lowest high (baloons beside us were 10 times higher than us).

This was a SUPERB experience which i would highly recommend. Nicholas and his team were so professional and engaging and we had the most enjoyable time as a family. We have done hot-air ballooning in South Africa and can say that this was far far better !! Nearly landing in Mick Jaggers Chateau gardens was a highlight ! If i could make one recommendation, please could we have a flask of coffee to start the early morning flights.Other than that, it was 5 stars. Stephen Pellerade

A must do when in the Loire Valley/Tours area. The staff were very nice and the balloon ride was smooth, relaxing, with beautiful views. They served champagne when we went up. Keep in mind they will ask for sown help setting up and packing up after but it doesn't take long and was part of the fun!

Amazing! Nico, the owner of this company and our pilot, was incredible. Picked us up from our hotel and had a great conversation on the way. Very safe and thorough instructions were provided in English and French. Amazing views and even champagne and pastries at landing!
