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 would encourage anyone and everyone to fly with Rick Behr and crew of the Boar’s Head Ballooning. Our trip was postponed by one day due to slightly unfavorable conditions, but Rick more than made up for the delay. Our flight was nothing short of AMAZING! Boris, the driver, photographer, and ground crew was an absolute pleasure as well. Rick was accommodating and professional, and it was obvious from the moment we met, that he knows EXACTLY what he is doing. I can’t wait to go back, and fly with him again. If you are looking for a memorable hot air balloon ride, please do yourself a favor and give these guys a call. You won’t regret it.
A Great Experience
Rick Behr and his flight crew were very pleasant and professional. Our safety was their first concern, so our flight was rescheduled when the winds were a bit too high on our designated day. But when we rescheduled for two days later, conditions were perfect and so was our flight. They have a special accessible basket (with a door) available upon request, so ANYONE can fly. Our group had a 91 year old who says “Everyone should have this experience!” It’s at the same time both peaceful and exciting, comfortable and thrilling, what you’d hoped for and still surprising. The post-flight toasts and picture viewing at the historic Boars Head Inn cap a great time. Don’t miss the chance to fly with Boars Head Ballooning.
