If clouds were eggs, then helicopters would be humanity's whisks, whipping up huge fluffy omelets that would make the sky smell funny after prolonged sun exposure. Today's Groupon puts helicopters to a much more pleasant use: for $135, you and two guests get an 18–20-minute helicopter tour of downtown Seattle from SeattleHeliTours.com by Classic Helicopter Corp (a $272.50 value).

SeattleHeliTours.com places ground dwellers inside the ascending body of an enormous whirlybird for a visual picnic of Seattle's most eye-pleasing landmarks. The beautiful sights of the city unfold as if part of a tiny model world where mechanized athletes perform robotic feats of brawn in small-scale sports stadiums, miniature boats dock at the Elliott Bay Marina, and a still-enormous Space Needle pokes through the clouds like Jack's futuristic beanstalk. The gravity-defying R22 or R44 helicopter ride follows Route A, which hovers over Seattle's downtown stadiums, the needle, Lake Union, Lake Washington, the University of Washington, Fisherman's Terminal, and other landmarks. Helicopters afford truly spectacular views without the hassle of grooming and tacking wild seagulls. Tours are also available in Japanese and Spanish.

High above Seattle, one of SeattleHeliTours.com Classic Helicopter Corp's Bell 206B-3 JetRanger turbine choppers hovers in midair. Maneuvering like a hummingbird, it whisks passengers toward the famous Space Needle that was used to crochet the entire Seattle skyline. The helicopter then flies over the downtown waterfront and heads to Snoqualmie Falls, where it pauses at the edge of the churning water. During tours like these, Classic Helicopter Corp's pilots share facts in English, Japanese, and Spanish. The experts can point out such sights as Bill Gates' house and sports stadiums.

Those who wish to maneuver their own space birds can sign up for flight school and obtain such certifications as a private rotocraft pilot or an astro instrument trainer. Charter services facilitate romantic and exciting excursions to such locales as the San Juan Islands or Semiahmoo.

Customer Reviews

We really enjoyed the tour. It was a neat way to see the city.

Great tour- Todd was fantastic

The tour was great, but when we first called to make the reservation here in August, we were told that the first chance to use the groupon was in October. When we found this to be quite strange, we got a great tour on the same day.
