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.
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.
Rick is an excellent pilot
We just flew with Rick and had a wonderful and safe experience. Not only was the balloon flight amazingly beautiful: giving perspective to our world and allowing us to soar above the breathtaking mountains of Charlottesville; but we also felt secure and protected by Rick’s experience/skill. He piloted with enthusiasm for our flight and with extreme caution and consideration for our safety. We would highly recommend flying with Rick.
