    San Antonio


Description

Lift off and explore San Antonio's legendary landmarks and stunning sights by air. From your comfortable seat in a nimble helicopter, get a bird's-eye view of the Alamo, the Tower of the Americas and the city's incredible gardens, all paired with an intriguing insight from your experienced guide.

Head to Stinson Municipal Airport and climb aboard a Robinson R44 helicopter as your pilot performs a few final safety checks and gets clearance for takeoff. Strap yourself into your window seat and listen as the rotors hum to life. Take off into the sky and get rewarded with breathtaking views of the San Antonio River.

Follow the snaking waterway into the city centre, where you can catch your first glimpse of the Tower of the Americas. Originally built for the 1968 World's Fair, this 750-foot (229 m) structure features a revolving restaurant where diners can get 360-degree views of the city while they eat.

Nearby, see the Alamo and listen as your guide explains how this historic fort was integral to the Texas Revolution. Continue the history lesson with a quick buzz over a centuries-old mission and find out why there's an old cement stack sticking up from behind the high-end shops at Quarry Market.

Make a quick pass over the animals at the San Antonio Zoo, and snap photos as you hover over the meticulously manicured grounds at the Botanical Gardens before you head back to the helipad and make a soft landing on the tarmac.
