Great job and informative comments were giving to us.
Kathleen D. · April 5, 2012
Very courteous & friendly. The pilot was very knowledgeable of Chicago with a lot of fun little facts which made the tour that much better. I was born & raised in Chicago & learned a few new things. I've also been on tours in other cities that the tour guide didn't seem to know a lot about the city other than something you would read in a tour guide.

My son made a movie-maker slide show of our trip and I think he is trying to add music to it if you are interested. Our pilot, Matt, was a great host.

The 35-minute tour provides ample time to continue north, with bird's-eye views of Windy City landmarks such as Navy Pier, the Hancock building, and Willis Tower. Continue west toward the United Center, circling back toward the airport to for a safe landing on a pile of helicopter-sized pillows.
