Chicago’s beauty is legendary. At night it’s positively magical. This tour takes you up, up and away to see those sparkling skyscrapers from a state-of-the-art helicopter. You'll take to the skies among twinkling lights and shimmering city waterways. Sit back, and let your pilot talk you through it all.

You’ll depart from the downtown heliport, just minutes from the 'Loop'. Before your flight, you'll get oriented on the histories and stories of the Windy City - and even take a spin on the interactive flight simulator.

Then the Chicago Helicopter Night Tour whisks you (and your camera, of course) on a helicopter ride over the Windy City. Catch Buckingham Fountain’s glimmering light show in the summer or Michigan Avenue ablaze at holiday time.

You’ll see Navy Pier illuminated, and colorful lights from magnificent skyscrapers reflecting onto the Chicago River. And of course historic Wrigley Field, home of the champion Chicago Cubs.

As you glide across the city your pilot will share facts and folklore that bring Chicago to life.

By the time you touch back down you'll feel like it was all a dream - good thing you got those photos!
