Better than expected!! A must for people in Chicago and visiting Chicago. The entire group - college and high school kids and parents had a blast... Having CHE set up the VIP bus transportation to / from Glen Ellyn made it fun and easy!

We had a ball. Our tour guide was great. The establishment was well organized and on point. I would recommend this experience for everyone. Side note if you are overweight I would suggest a private tour if u can afford it. My husband is 250lbs and I am 220lbs. We were a little snug in our seats but it was doable. They grouped us with slim ppl😂. But overall it was amazing the view is awesome and yessss I would do it again.

This was a great experience from the pre-flight safety instructions, to the safety walking out to the helicopter, to the excellent pilot. He flew us up to Wrigley Field, explaining what we were seeing along the lakeshore. Great trip!
