We had a wonderful experience flying with Blue Ridge Hot Air Balloons this weekend. I highly recommend this company to anyone interested in ballooning in the Shenandoah Valley area. A previous reviewer cited their frustration at having a flight cancelled due to weather. I had a flight earlier this year cancelled due to weather as well; however, I am glad that Blue Ridge takes safety seriously. When you make initial contact with the owners, they tell you to call both the night before and again in the morning to verify weather conditions. For those including this as part of a family vacation, I recommend having a backup activity in case the weather does not cooperate.
Once up, the view from the air is amazing. It's quite different from a plane since you are moving slower and are outside rather than looking through a window. While no one can take the risk out of ballooning, the safety minded approach of Blue Ridge will send me back to them the next time I want to go ballooning.
