What could be better than a quiet balloon flight over the autumn foliage of North Carolina? That was our dream. Of course, such a thing is quite weather dependent and, luckily, BOA is very safety conscious. Regrettably, they had to cancel our flight, due to...More

This was my wife's and I first time in the balloon. We both are scared of heights and Addison our pilot made us feel very comfortable. Very friendly and personable. Such a wonderful and memorable activity to experience. Highly recommend.

This was a wonderful experience. I would recommend flying with Balloons over Asheville. It is worth waking up early to see the sun coming up over the mountains.

This was my wife and I's first hot air balloon ride and we were both a bit nervous. We were quickly put at ease by the professionalism, friendliness, and safety-first attitude of our pilot :). We had an amazing flight!

We had an awesome time!!!! Addison, our pilot, and Sam our ground crew made everything perfect. Things start kind of slow, but that's only because they are truly concerned about safety first. Once they were sure about the winds and knew the direction we would...More
