Before airplanes, the only way humans could hope to gain an aerial perspective of their surroundings was through astral projection or being launched from a trebuchet. Explore the avian world more easily with today's Groupon: for $189, you get a 30-minute hill-country or city flight airplane tour for two from Air Tours Texas (a $390 value).
Air Tours Texas and its dedicated pilots sweep passengers away in swift new planes for expertly guided airborne journeys. Perfect for couples celebrating an anniversary or first successful ramen casserole, both tours allow two people to celebrate themselves, the air, and the ceaseless rotation of the earth all at once. Ensconced in plush leather seats, passengers drink in the stunning scenery of the Texas Hill Country. From their auspicious perch in the sky, couples can witness the beauty of the region's shimmering lakes, experience the majesty of its rolling hills, and pinpoint the secret location of the hole where Elvis is hiding. The city flight takes passengers 2,500 feet above the city center of San Antonio before wheeling south toward the Alamo Dome, allowing the pristine urban artwork, glittering lights, and celebrity buildings to take center stage.
Both flights depart from San Antonio International Airport; call Air Tours Texas to reserve a spot for a given day. Hill-country tours depart by reservation each day from 9 a.m. to 90 minutes before sunset. Since each plane holds up to five passengers, two couples may be paired on a flight, offering a chance for a unique impromptu double date.
