Better than expected!! A must for people in Chicago and visiting Chicago. The entire group - college and high school kids and parents had a blast... Having CHE set up the VIP bus transportation to / from Glen Ellyn made it fun and easy!

This was a great experience from the pre-flight safety instructions, to the safety walking out to the helicopter, to the excellent pilot. He flew us up to Wrigley Field, explaining what we were seeing along the lakeshore. Great trip!
