How fun and unusual, to fly OVER the city you are visiting. Even if you are from Chicago, as I am, it was great to take my Godson up and give him an experience he'll always remember. From the date of booking until the departure the team was helpful, organized and exuded confidence. Our pilot very personable and professional. I recommend this to most anyone who wants to 'do' the unusual.
1st day was overcast sky, but the customer service was excellent and so understanding. They asked us to come back any day any time during our trip and they would accommodate us. The staff was really friendly and the place was beautiful, really well managed and run. This is one of the largest helipads in the country - right in the heart of Chicago!
Our next day we got into the helicopter right away. Our pilot, Eric was awesome! He is a caring person, our kids loved him! The ride in itself is totally worth it - magnificent views over Chicago, Lake Mich, the Chicago river, all over downtown, the towers, Soldier Park - just breathtaking...it was for 15 mins but when you are up there and cruising it seems like a long ride. Happy landings in the end :
After the ride we went into the garage, saw the operations, took pictures...best thing we did in Chi town.
Kudos to the team there...highly recommend!
it's a pleasure to give this tour my greatest recommendation when in the windy city. It definitely is a beautiful view like no other.
One of the best things I have ever done. Ryan our pilot answered all our questions, was very friendly. I am now looking forward to an evening tour on my next trip. Highly recommend getting to know Chicago from the air.

There are no combination of words that I can find, to effectively describe how unbelievable this experience was. Once you do it, you'll understand what I mean.

This was just an amazing experience which I'll remember for the rest of my life.Ryan the pilot flew us over the city of Chicago and pointed out all the great iconic sights.The Aerial view of Chicago is just breathtaking,highly recommended tour!Thanks Ryan.
This was the best of all the tours we took. All the better for being in the winter as the snow and the ice on the lake really helped define everything. We would do this again at other locations.
Weather started as uncooperative. The pilot, Ryan, allowed the flexibility to wait for more of the fog to burn off. His knowledge of the city and its architectural history was amazing. The views from above the fog were amazing This excursion is highly recommended. The ride, take off and landing were so smooth that the though of being suspended in air never entered my mind.
My son was well impressed with this tour overt the city and the knowledge of the pilot, Ryan. He was a really nice approachable guy.
Just amazing!!!! Was very informative brilliant way to see more of the city would go again next time I vist and try a night tour a must to do in Chicago,
The pilot was very accomodating, knowledgable, and fun. The views were outstanding. This tour is definitely a "Must Do". I would even look into doing it again on a return trip to Chicago.
