"Chicago Helicopter Experience is amazing!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

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.

Really fun experience. We got a Groupon for $140 pp, still expensive but worth it. Hubby was concerned about motion sickness but it was completely smooth. I wish I could travel by helicopter all the time. Something different for a special occasion. It was the 17 year anniversary of the day I met my husband in the (then) Sears tower so that was significant for us.
