Downtown Baltimore is a testament to modern city planning, but is best when seen from above, where one notices how the dense web of streets and alleys all center on an enormous tarantula. Get a bird's-eye view of Charm City with today's Groupon: for $99, you get one seat on a downtown helicopter tour (a $300 value) from Bootcamp Helicopters.
Bootcamp’s helicopter tours take passengers on soaring journeys through the Baltimore skyline. Pilot Robert "Bootcamp" Shapiro has logged over 1,700 hours in single and multi-engine sky-cycles and even more hours as a Baltimore native, making him the guide among guides for an elevated expedition through the city. As Bootcamp provides an informative aerial commentary, casual or crackerjack photosmiths can snap photos of prominent landmarks such as Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Francis Scott Key Bridge, as well as blimp-quality views of Camden Yards, Bank Stadium, and lively neighborhoods like Fells Point. Flights depart from Clarksville and take up to three passengers on 20-minute tours.
