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!!!!
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.
I recently knocked something off my bucket list and went on a hot air balloon ride with Rick, I am terrified of heights, but LOVED the entire experience. Rick is so knowledgeable about flying and so experienced that he immediately put me at ease. This was by far one of the greatest things I have ever done and can not wait to go back up. The balloon was gorgeous, and he took the time to try and get us over the river for fantastic photos of the reflection of our balloon over the water. Truly a breath-taking experience.
