Flying is an excellent way to get close enough to a cloud to milk it or to visit your secret sky family.

Choose between the following options:
- For $55, you get an eight-minute, 15-kilometre helicopter tour of Toronto (up to a $111.87 value, including HST). Tours must have three people to fly. Those who arrive for a single person tour will be placed with other passengers.
- For $150, you get a private eight-minute, 15-kilometre helicopter tour of Toronto for up to three people (up to a $335.61 value, including HST).<p>
Taking off from the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, Toronto Helicopter Tours’ expert pilots transport landlocked citizens into cloud territory by harnessing the levitating abilities of their safe, comfortable helicopters. Gravity-defiers or trios of flyers on the city tour experience inertial relief 2,000 feet above Toronto as they snap candids of the city’s main attractions, such as the CN Tower and its heretofore-secret roof tattoo. The 15-kilometre weekend tour traverses downtown at speeds of up to 176 km/h and affords riders smooth sojourns and resplendent views of Lake Ontario and the Toronto Islands, providing them with panoramic aerial experiences with which to taunt flightless birds. As each tour must have a full flight, single celestial sightseers can arrive solo and make new airborne friends or scoop up additional Groupons for staring-contest opponents to facilitate approximately eight minutes of airtime in a private copter.
Though Toronto Helicopter Tours sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About The Helicopter Company Inc.
With The Helicopter Company Inc.—which also operates as Toronto Heli Tours—before you travel by air, you have to travel by water. All clients have to take a brief ferry ride to reach the Toronto Heli Tours outpost at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, where pilots guide a chopper skyward all year round. From their perch 2,000 feet above sea level, passengers take in sweeping glimpses of city landmarks, including the Spadina Museum, Maple Leaf Gardens, and the Air Canada Centre, during expeditions. The copter will also complete a fly-by of the CN Tower, which held the title of world’s tallest free-standing structure from 1976 until 2007—31 years of towering over structures in other countries and centres from visiting NBA teams.
