I recently scheduled a special event with CHE for a family member's milestone birthday and we had an unforgettable experience. Isha, one of their Account Managers, worked with me for several weeks to arrange a package of activities for my evening that made CHE a one stop shop experience for everything we needed. From a shuttle bus, to a boat cruise to our helicopter ride, everything went off without a hitch and we felt personally guided and pampered for our entire evening. Arrangements were very flexible and accommodating and when a conflict arose, CHE adjusted their services to compensate without passing on any additional cost to ensure we were more than satisfied. It was a wonderful experience and one I hope to replicate again in the future. Thanks CHE for an evening my friends and family will never forget.

Saturday, April 15 went for a helicopter tour of the city I live in. Been on river cruises, bus tours, train, car and by foot. Arrived about 45 minutes early thinking it was going to cancel winds were out of control. Checked in by a very pleasant female CSR with a beautiful smile and a professional attitude, checked in and she shared that the winds were high and a possible delay could happen, guess what did not, watched a safety and security short video, boarded the helicopter and Rob our pilot welcomed us pleasantly and conducted the tour between facts, stories and beautiful views we had a great time. He even flew close to Wrigley Field (we both had Cubs jersey) he figured out we were fans, no doubt we are. Overall recommend the experience stop by and enjoy you will not forget.

"Chicago Helicopter Experience is amazing!"

I recently had the opportunity to take an evening helicopter flight over Chicago and it was incredible. It certainly did not disappoint and I would recommend anyone who lives in Chicago or who is visiting Chicago to take advantage of this experience. While the flight itself was enough for me to give the experience a 5 star rating, the reason I really was 'wowed' by the experience is because of the pilot and staff at Chicago Helicopter Experience. They were all so incredible, so gracious and really fun. This is definitely a must do for all locals and visitors!

My boyfriend and I went on an evening trip and it was perfect! Staff was very friendly and the flight was a ton of fun. Would definitely suggest if you're looking for something different to do on a weekend in Chicago or for a unique date night experience. 10/10 would do again.
