I was trying to find a hot air balloon ride locally (VA, MD, DC, PA) for my son-in-law's 50th and found a highly reputable outfit in Charlottesville, VA, who had ballooned for many years in France and elsewhere in Europe. I mentioned Marilyn Harvey's Airial Balloon Company and the fellow proceeded to brag for 15 minutes about Airial's decades of experience, and outstanding work, safety and rides. Of course I agreed, having taken a lovely trip several years ago over the Snohomish Valley against the backdrop of the Cascade Mountains and its Mount Rainier. We both guarantee that no balloon company is safer or gives better professional or friendlier service!
