Best adventures of our lives
Rick Behr of Boar’s Head ballooning took me and my two kids up and over Charlottesville on what turned out to be one of the best adventures of our lives. The kids absolutely loved seeing the sights from a bird’s eye view. I’m a little scared of heights, so was a little worried, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out the flight is so smooth and serene, it turns out not to be scary at all. Rick was amazing with the kids and kept them engaged, while skillfully manning the balloon. He has so much experience and is very attuned to safety which was incredibly important to me since I was taking my kids. It was one of the main reasons I chose Boars Head ballooning. The champagne toast and gorgeous pictures from our photographer/chaser were just icing on an already delicious cake.
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.
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.
