Chicago by Night Helicopter Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Make your way to Vertiport Chicago to meet your expert pilot and board your state-of-the-art, heated helicopter for your evening tour of the city. Depending on the departure time you choose, watch a colorful sunset or see the Chicago skyline light up as darkness falls.

    Your pilot will provide expert commentary about all the sights you see via your two-way audio headset, and will be available to answer questions you have throughout your flight. 

    Appreciate the masterful beauty and architecture of Millennium Park, designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry. This landmark can only be truly appreciated by air, and at night, it’s as majestic as ever. Spot iconic skyscrapers dazzling in the night like Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) and the John Hancock Building, and fly past main Chicago sites like Soldier's Field, United Center, Grant Park, the Lincoln Park Zoo, the Shedd Aquarium and the Field Museum. Marvel at wonderful views of Lake Michigan, with Navy Pier stretching across the water and picturesque Lincoln Park lining the shores. Tour route is subject to change.

    At the conclusion of your 15-minute tour, return to your departure point at Vertiport Chicago.

    I don’t know if you’ve been in a helicopter before, but this is a small and comfy one, not a big, loud Navy chopper carrying you over the water - my only previous experience of one. When you’re taking your teen boys up over the city, the fact that the pilot was clearly

    We loved it. We already love the view of Chicago but the being in the tallest building in America gets cramped. Flying over the city is a whole new experience that is worth the try. I decided the night view was best and boy, am I glad I chose it. Although it was night time, you
