What You're Saying
A true Charlottesville experience!
This time of year is the best for the Sunrise flight. With the cool, crisp mornings and prevailing winds blowing to the North, the flight path shows off some spectacular foliage. i could not take enough pictures. I was surprised it was not very cold, but when the pilot explained we are moving WITH the wind, so you aren’t feeling it, it made sense, but the opposite of saling, so dress for the temperature! Rick, the pilot, sure knows his stuff and is very informative. When we flew over the reservoir, he dipped the basket so it skimmed the water. Wasn’t at all scary, and very impressive flying. we were in the air about 45 minutes before we set down in a field, and every pitched in to roll up the balloon to pack it in the trailer that followed our flight. A van takes you back to the boars Head Inn. This is not a cheap outing – over $200 per person – but unforgettable and great for a special occasion for when wealthy relatives visit!
I received a beautiful balloon for my birthday!
OMG…Rick and crew are straight to the point…be on time and lets “Fly!”…I have wanted to fly forever…we have been driving from Williamsburg the past few years to look at the fall foliage. We have seen the crew after flights a number of times…this year I made a wish and it came true..one week delay as a result of bad weather gave us the most perfect flight conditions on Tuesday October the 21nd. The set up was quick.. everyone was ask to participate…off we went. Sunrise was breath taking…six inches of the ground all business and no play Rick was an absolute teddy bear…his smiles and delight with the perfect “everything” truly demonstrated the high level of experience this individual has…My husband and I felt perfectly safe at all times. The view was breath taking…the flight was comfortable…the balloon stunning…the other two guest a delightful daughter and mom were fun to fly with…The disc of photos they presented to us at the end of our journey along with refreshments were fantastic…I would recommend this adventure to all interested in a very special time…quoting our Flight Certificate “May the wind welcome you with softness…and gently back again into the arms of Mother Earth” Thank you! Rick Behr. Keep it up!
Wonderful experience and service
Had an amazing experience with Boar’s Head Ballooning. The weather was perfect and the owner, Rick Behr, gave a group of friends and me an incredible and long trip over the Charlottesville area. Rick and everyone else working there were friendly, communicative, cool, and just fun to be around. They were fun to talk to and very understanding, and they even taught us about the ballooning process. In such a beautiful city/area, and with a great group of people at Boar’s Head Ballooning, people in Charlottesville are missing out if they haven’t taken a hot air balloon ride with these people yet.
