All about the trip
A daytime helicopter tour over ‘The Windy City’ will change your view of Chicago forever. Whether you’re a local, returning tourist, or a first-time visitor to ‘Chi-Town’; nothing can prepare you for the breath-taking views you are about to experience.
Beginning the tour near the South Chicago River, we ascend upwards in the comfort of a state-of-the-art helicopter. Being the third largest city in The United States, Chicago’s vast urban landscape stretches out for as far as the eye can see; and to the righthand side, impressive views across Lake Michigan will also astound you.
Being the birthplace of the ‘Skyscraper’, you’re about to understand why Chicago is so impressive by air. As we elevate higher and higher, soon the people down below begin to look like ants and we begin to hover almost at eye-level with some of downtown Chicago’s tallest skyscrapers. Some of the kings of these towering giants include, The Willis Sears Tower, Trump International Hotel, The Aon Center, The John Hancock Center and the Franklin Center North Tower; just to name a few. Chicago’s downtown is absolutely packed with famous buildings and landmarks, you wonder how the town-planners managed to fit them all in!
Other iconic landmarks you may see include, The Navy Pier, Wrigley Field and the ‘Chicago Bean’ otherwise known as The Cloud Gate.
Throughout the tour, your pilot will provide you with interesting facts about major Chicago landmarks and the city’s centuries of history that even the locals don’t know about, including how the city even got its nickname; which don’t worry, has nothing to do with it actually being windy..!
With so much to see in all directions, please do remember to charge your camera batteries and bring an extra memory card with you. We know from first-hand experience that you will want to take more photos than you originally intended!
Also, don’t forget to bring some sunglasses too, as it can get quite bright when flying over Chicago on summer days.
Please remember to arrive 30 mins earlier than the flight time as there will be a briefing on helicopter safety from your pilot.
