While travel and life in 2020 was quite different to say the least, millions of travellers everywhere shared reviews and opinions about the experiences that left a good impression on Tripadvisor.

A hot air balloon ride in Italy is exactly the type of uplifting experience (pun intended), many of us would have dreamt of in the first half of 2020. Even though people had to stay a little closer to home and wait for their safe window to travel again, we were still able to create unforgettable experiences and lasting memories.

We are delighted that our hot air balloon ride in Italy was one of the experiences that stood out for many travellers many, as recognised by winning a Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Award.

About the Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Award

This award is determined by the travellers themselves which is why it means so much to us. After all, what matters most is that every guest enjoys a spectacular hot air balloon ride in the Umbrian countryside.

Travellers’ Choice (formerly Certificate of Excellence) recognises businesses that earn consistently great reviews. Approximately 10% of businesses listed on Tripadvisor receive a Travellers’ Choice award; we are thrilled to be considered in this top tier.

To qualify for Travellers’ Choice, Balloon Adventures Italy had to maintain an overall Tripadvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, receive a minimum number of reviews in the previous 12-month period and be listed on Tripadvisor for at least one year.

We can’t decide whether it’s the stunning views of Umbria, the wine tasting at 10:00 in the morning post balloon ride or the charming personality of Captain Peter that sealed the deal on all our 5-star hot air balloon ride reviews.
