This was our first experience in a hot air balloon. I must say it was spectacular. I would highly recommend Blue Ridge Ballooning to anyone looking to enjoy the awesome skies above Charlottesville, Virginia. The owners made this trip totally worth it. Thanks again! Jason and Kathy

Our balloon trip was a gift from our children, when we decided to schedule our flight there was no hassle at all. Easy communication throughout, always pleasant to deal with. Jim was our pilot on the balloon, he was very friendly and professional at the same time. BRB is definitely conscious about safety first, they want their customers to have a wonderful experience-which they give to you. We would definitely recommend everyone try a new adventure and take a hot air balloon ride with Blue Ridge Balloon Company.

If you've ever dreamed of going in a hot air balloon, this is the place to go! We had great customer service. It was easy to book and also easy to reschedule due to unfortunate weather. Liana was super nice and an excellent pilot. She even was able to take us down to the surface of the river at one point with excellent control. The view of Charlottesville and the Blue Ridge Mountains was phenomenal and marvelous to behold. My wife and I felt very safe and cared for the whole time and even learned a few things. It was a great activity to celebrate our anniversary and would be great for all sorts of occasions.

What an amazing adventure from beginning to end. The booking process was easy and Liana was so kind and reassuring. We arrived at the meeting location and were greeted as if we were already friends. We were hands on with starting the balloon but relaxed the entire balloon ride.... what beautiful views and gorgeous pictures!!!! Liana is super knowledgeable about flying and is well experienced. Her husband Jim picks you up at your landing area to drive you back to the original meeting area. Had a small toast afterward with drinks and cups provides. What an amazing and unforgettable experience. Definitely worth the price. My recommendation, although more costly, is to book a couples only flight as the basket is too small for 4 people! 5 star rating!!!!
