we liked the employees very much. But the tour is little bit short, it takes only 15 minutes. Time is not enough tour for city.

This was the highlight of my trip!! I travel to Chicago frequently and wanted to check this off my bucket list. The facility was clean and the staff in the terminal were very friendly. We went through a thorough safety briefing before boarding and they take a picture of you before you board the helicopter. I wasn't expecting the helicopter to be as big as it was, but it was definitely reassuring to be flying in something that looked and felt really safe. When you take off you're right in the middle of the Chicago skyline. We flew up and down the shoreline and was able to get great pics of the buildings below. The pilot pointed out things along the trip but the coolest thing I thought was you could speak to him through your headset. We had a couple people on the flight that joked with the pilot and made the flight really entertaining. Overall it was a great experience. Next time I'm in Chicago I'm bringing my co-worker on a night tour!

This was a fabulous tour. We left around sunset and the views were awesome. I can't thank the staff enough for helping me with a lost phone issue I had at the time of check in. SUPER SERVICE!!

Really amazing time! Very easy to access via the Orange Line a 250 foot walk at most. Greeted very warmly upon arrival and was given a buzzer to know when it was time to head over to pre-flight. Jenga, Uno, Cards, and music were all a nice touch as you wait for the pre-flight. The video in the pre-flight was very informative and very much made everything easy to understand for when/how to board the helicopter. The flight last around a good 15/20 minutes and you were able to see the city from both the east lake and west sides. Pilot was spectacular and you could tell he'd been doing this for a long time. In the helicopter you get noise canceling headphones which play music, something I really enjoyed instead of just silence. Landing back at heliport was nice and smooth and they have pictures waiting from earlier for sale. There are also free lockers to put your stuff in while on the ride! Overall, really a once in a lifetime experience that I would highly recommend to anyone who loves the city of Chicago/looking for something new and exciting!
