We had the most wonderful time
My kids and I went ballooning with Rick Behr of Bear Balloons and we had the most wonderful time. He knew all about the history of Charlottesville when we asked questions or if we saw a landmark but for much of the ride we enjoyed the peace and quiet of flying over gorgeous countryside. The crew was very professional and gave us lovely pictures of our flight afterwards along with a celebratory toast. Departing for our flight and coming back to the Boar’s Head Inn for our toast afterwards was delightful as well. We have already scheduled our next flight with him and have given two flights with Bear Balloons as a wedding present and an anniversary present.
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!
