Our Amazing Deal On Groupon
If you have some questions before you purchase these vouchers then please the Common Questions Tab Below. If you have already purchased your vouchers and you want to know what the next step is the please read the tab below marked I Already Have My Vouchers.
The deal that we are offering on Groupon is for our Heli Tour #1, a helicopter flight that takes you 2000 feet above downtown Toronto and a digital photo that you can download the day after your tour! The Heli Tour covers approximately 15 km over the ground, and is approximately 6 to 8 minutes in duration.
We are offering a choice of two vouchers with this deal. The voucher that is priced at $59.00 is for one seat on our helicopter tour and the voucher that is priced at $169.00 is for three seats on our helicopter tour. Both prices do not include taxes, which you will need to pay when you check in for your flight with us. The taxes will be $7.67 for the one seat voucher and $21.97 for the three seat voucher. There are not other fees charged by us, however you may need to pay for parking when you come to fly with us and of course gratuities are completely at your discretion.
The vouchers are valid for flights on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until the expiry date on your voucher. Our flights go until 30 minutes before sunset (which changes throughout the year).
Our helicopter can seat three passengers at one time. All three seats are window seats that provides the greatest view of Toronto. We will only confirm a booking once all three seats are filled or paid for. When you make your reservation with us we will assign your seating to make sure that the helicopter is full. This is easy enough with single seat vouchers or three seat vouchers, however two single seat vouchers may have to fly separately on back to back flights. We will do our best to keep couples together on the same flight, but if you want to guarantee that two people will fly together, then we suggest you purchase the three seat vouchers to get a private flight at a really great price.
All flights are by reservation only. When you are ready to book with us you will need to email us at BookMyGroupon@HeliTours.ca. We will then send you a short Excel spreadsheet that you can fill out with your requested flight dates, voucher number(s), passenger names and their weights. When the form is complete, you can then email it back to us and we will let you know the closest available time to your requested dates. Once you agree to the date and time that we offer, we will send you a detailed email confirmation that will have all of the information that you will need to come fly with us.
We will only be able to accept bookings for this deal once the deal has closed and all of the vouchers can be verified. That means we will only be able to complete booking requests after March 14, 2013. Our reservations office is open Wednesdays to Sundays from 11:00 am until 6:00 pm.
We do have a cancellation policy of 72 hours. If you cancel your booking with us within 72 hours of your tour then your voucher will be considered used.
We have fairly strict weather requirements for our tours. We want to make sure that when you fly with us, you will have a good sightseeing experience. That means that we will only fly the tours if we have at least 10 miles of visibility (which allows you to see from the Don Valley Parkway all the way to High Park). We also need the clouds to be high enough to allow us to safely fly at 2,000 feet and we do not fly when the wind is gusting higher than 55 km per hour or if the gust spread is greater than 18 km per hour. If we do not have the weather to do the tours then the Chief Pilot will cancel the flights on the day of the flights and we will work with you to reschedule your tour for another day. We do not issue refunds for weather cancellations, we will just reschedule your tour.
We are located at the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, which is located right downtown at the bottom of Bathurst Street. You will need to take a short ferry ride to get to us. It is the shortest schedule ferry ride in the world. Anyone can walk onto the ferry at no cost and ride across.
