  • The Chicago CityPASS was an excellent way to see some of the best museums and landmarks for the city. We easily saved over $70-$80 each with the pass and it allowed you special perks at most of the venues. You will need a few days to go through some of the massive museums, but well worth it.

  • We really enjoyed our CityPASS for Chicago. It was definitely less expensive than buying the tickets individually. Plus, at all of the attractions, we were able to jump at the head of the line. That's huge.

  • This is a great value. By purchasing this city pass ahead of time, it easily saved me close to half of the total cost if I were to have bought a ticket at each attraction separately. For the adventurer with a penchant for learning new things and taking in incredible views, I highly recommend this pass without reservation.

  • Highly recommend if you are planning to visit the museums, John Hancock Observatory, and/or Sears tower.

  • Reduce the lines with a CityPASS! We did the math if you are going to all the places CityPass offers it's a better value with extra services you'd play even more for at the venue. Best part, busy places, have CityPASS lines that save you TIME! It was a very good value. BTW, do the Sears Tower, aka Willis, early in the morning!

  • We have now used City Pass in Tampa, New York City, and Chicago and couldn't be happier with how it works. Saves a bunch of money for our family of 4 and we get to see all the sites we were planning on anyway. Highly recommend this to travelers with kids who love a good tourist stop!

  • It's a easy and reliable way to purchase a city pass to see multiple attractions. Viator never disappoints.

  • You must go to multiple museums to make it worth it.

  • Unfortunately, not all of the attractions honored the fast pass aspect of our CityPass. We had to wait in multiple lines at 360 Chicago because no one seemed to know what was going on. When we got to the 96th floor several of us were told to go to the left while others went to the right. It was very confusing and no one seemed to care whether or not visitors had a good experience. At the Field Museum, we waited in line with everyone else despite our CityPass. No special or fast pass entry existed at the Art Institute. The only place the fast pass actually worked as promised was Shedd Aquarium. They had a special line for CityPass holders. Overall we saved money but there was very little time savings which was a big reason we bought CityPass.

  • Museums are fine. City Pass or the service provider, don't care which, forcing me to have to print a voucher out has made this a ridiculous experience. I first tried to buy it on my phone, but the app kept freezing up during the purchase every other app worked fine, and then I moved to my computer. On my phone, I supposedly would have had a mobile voucher. However, since I bought it on the computer, after I got the receipt, I noticed it said I could not use it as a mobile voucher - would not be available at the museums where you need to switch it for the books even though it is simply a bar code like any other voucher would be. The business center in the hotel has its own set of problems, but the simple fact is, it is ridiculous in this day and age to not have a system that makes use of mobile vouchers regardless. The effort we have had to go through trying to find a place to print out the voucher has made this not worth it in our books.
