I had such a great time with Boar’s Head Ballooning. Friendly, smart, and professional, and experienced staff. They even had extra jackets available for people like me who get cold! If you want to do a balloon ride while in Charlottesville, this is the place!
90th Birthday Ballon Ride, crossed off bucket list!
I had the opportunity to ride in a hot air balloon with my best friend, her brother and their Mom for her 90th Birthday! What a blast! Rick Behr, owner/operator…made sure conditions were perfect, and when we got the call that we could go up we hit the road to Charlottesville! We helped get the balloon ready, climbed in and then lifted like we were floating on a cloud! The beauty and peacefulness of it all was surreal… We landed effortlessly, in fact the birthday girl said, “When we landed it felt like we were just bouncing lightly on a bed!” I will look forward to when I can get back in the air with Rick at Boars Head Inn!!!!
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!
