Chicago helicopter experience is amazing. Once you arrive you sit in the waiting room and the have games to play and food and drinks for purchase. Very nice. A short 5 min class and then you are off to the heli-pad. We flew with captain Jose on the first flight of the day package. It was amazing. Birds eye view of the city. I didn’t think 15 mine would be enough but it is more than enough. Make sure to buy the $25 pic. It’s well worth it.

This was my very first helicopter ride and the CHETOURS crew did not disappoint. From the moment you check-in, thru the safety video, to the walk to board the helicopter, this company was professional and kept passenger saftey a top priority. The ride itself was amazing! And the pilot was very entertaining and informative. I highly recommend this company for your next helicopter experience.
