The City Pass made it so easy to go from place to place except Shedd’s Aquarium. They were not going to let us use them because it wasn’t an actual ticket, we finally had to get some from security to get us in! But that wasn’t CityPass issue, that was a training issue at the aquarium. We were not the only ones with this issues.

It was a very good idea to have bought the GoCity, we really saved a lot on tickets. It would be great if they included a map indicating the places to be able to put together an itinerary and not waste time on transfers.

The first driver was absolutely excellent and talked the whole time. Updates on what was around and even a celebrity or two…although I’d never heard of him. Great at to pick what we wished to do next to see

Accidentally reserved the wrong day but was able to get into every attraction promptly with no issues. Went straight through as advertised. Very pleased.

Excelente experiencia. La información brindada de mucha utilidad. 100% recomendado
