$269 -- Holiday Lights Helicopter Flight for 2, Reg. $429

Sold out - This deal was published December 11, 2013 and sold out December 18, 2013.
By Travelzoo Staff
CBS says the tours from Chicago Helicopter Express are among the best in the city. Give the gift of a flight to see the holiday lights and save up $160.

Why we love it

  • Makes a great gift -- reserve through May for a springtime trip along the skyline
  • See the Lincoln Park Zoo holiday lights from a unique vantage point
  • When we took a tour, we loved flying over Soldier Field from nearly 1000 feet up
  • "Offers an exceptional way to view the Chicago skyline" (CBS Chicago)
  • Soar past the Magnificent Mile, Navy Pier and Millennium Park all lit up for the holidays

The new experience ... Skyline, Soldiers Field, Wrigley, etc.

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.
