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.
The hot air balloon pilot, Rick, makes flying seem safer than walking.
I took my dad for a hot air balloon flight over Charlottesville for his 75th birthday. I am pretty scared of heights…and of anything remotely unsafe or scary. However, the pilot, Rick, put me completely at ease. The whole experience was one of the most, literally, awesome of my life. What a brilliant way to celebrate my dad’s birthday. Thanks to Rick. I would highly recommend the experience.
