Sold out - This deal was published May 10, 2013 and sold out May 22, 2013.
By Travelzoo Staff
Travel + Leisure readers named the famous Chicago skyline the country's best in 2010. With this offer, Travelzoo subscribers can see it from a truly unique perspective: soaring in a helicopter 800 feet in the air. Reserve a tour for two with Chicago Helicopter Express for $199, regularly $360, or fly with four and save even more -- for $335, regularly $679, take your own private flight. 

Why we love it

  • See the Chicago skyline from a new perspective with this helicopter tour for 2
  • Flights depart from north suburban Wheeling; fly straight down Lake Shore Drive
  • Tours take place in a climate-controlled Robinson R66 and last approximately 35 minutes
  • Soar over Wrigley Field, fly past Willis Tower or get a bird's-eye view of Navy Pier

The friendliest people. Our pilot Chuck made it enjoyable as well as making us feel comfortable and safe

It was over so soon. Wish it was a tad longer

The ride

The ride was bumpy, but cool. Travelzoo is great!

The pilot really didn't know much about Chicago. I would call this a helicopter ride, more than a tour. Had I paid full price, I would have been twice as disappointed.
