      City pass
      Deidre_S, Sep 2023
      Had the most fun visiting the Shedd Aquarium. Also, saw the Alder Planetarium and went on a river tour.
      Waste of money
      Annette_S, Sep 2023
      Very complicated to use. Better to purchase straight thru Chicago day pass. Was only able to use it on 2 of the 5 allotted venues. Hugely disappointing and not a good value.

      We're sorry to hear that you didn't have a good experience with CityPASS tickets.
      worth it
      Guruprasad_S, Sep 2023
      its worth buying the city pass, its is economical on pocket and saves about 50% of your entry tickets cost on attraction of your choice to be selected from few.
      Good choice!
      Maria_C, Sep 2023
      A very practical way to get to the top Chicago attractions. A smart choice that will save you good money.
      Best way to see the city!
      Laura_M, Sep 2023
      The city pass is the best money spent in Chicago if you want to see all the tourist locations. I have been to Chicago a lot in my life because my family lives here but it was my first time taking my son. This was a way better experience than when I was a kid having to buy tickets at all the different locations. Huge timesaver, and money saver! We had the time of our lives!
      Not to happy

      Not a big fan
      paternoster26, Aug 2023
      I loved having access to my pass and seeing the many sights in Chicago but using the pass was not simple. The app never showed my pass and didn’t link. Therefore, I could not reserve a time for some of the venues. I would not do this again.
      Response from Host, Aug 2023
      We're so sorry the app didn't work well for you and we apologize for any inconveniences. We're working on some improvements to prevent these problems, and we appreciate your feedback.
      Reginald_S, Jul 2023
      Very informative our first time in Chicago was great due to city pass. The food was great and the views were great. We will be sure to use this service the next time we are there can't wait!

      All the different activities we got to do with this pass that we might have skipped if paying full price! It was awesome!
      Viator CityPass app didn't work; couldn't use the 2 passes I purchased
      Stephanie_K, Jul 2023
      The Viator app did not work for me despite how many times I put in my email address and clicked the link. I was unable to use the pass at all.
      Response from Host, Aug 2023
      I'm sorry for any confusion. For CityPASS tickets, you would need to use the My CityPASS app, not the Viator app. You can find more details and a download link at
      Pass a plus
      Drew_A, Jul 2023
      Expedited entry and ability to schedule times with the pass was a big plus, saved time, making sure we made good use of time

      It saddens me to right this review 😢 I’ve been using Viator for several years now and have had nothing but AMAZING EXPERIENCE until as of late, This was one of my worst experiences ever well we started off with a Segway Tour in Chicago However the rain ruined the day so I was contacted by the tour guide as well S Viator which I thought was Freaking awesome Well we rescued for later that day because the rain was scheduled to stop however that was not the case well I reached out about a refund or credit but received nothing, That’s not where the story ends so there was also a sunset cruise that was rained out as well However I received a refund as well as an option to book again well now we get to the City pass that I purchased yesterday and was denied entry to just about ever place on the list I was told that they didn’t know how to schedule a booking because I booked through 4th party yea I kno I kno crazy this is not my first purchasing a city pass I’m well aware of how they work ok so I reached out to Viator to let them know what was going on and see if there was something that could be done to save my last day In Chicago well they responded and said they would get back to me hmm well was kinda hoping I would get to use my city pass while I’m in the city oh well I guess Viator had other plans..

      Response from Host, Jul 2023
      I'm so sorry about this. Have you tried contacting CityPASS customer care? If not, I suggested doing so. They may be able to help with your tickets, and if you are not in Chicago any longer, they may be able to tell you if you might be eligible for a refund.
      Excellent service
      Samuel_C, Jul 2023
      I went with my kids and family, and we were extremely satisfied by the easiest to use this. We went straight to the Lines with our digital tickets. Please make reservations in advance for Skydeck, and 360 Chicago. You may also need to do reservations for museums.
      Great Value
      Kerry_S, Jul 2023
      Excellent value! I was impressed that this pass also included the 3-D and 4-D movies within the museums.
      Whirlwind visit
      Susan_M, Jul 2023
      We enjoyed our visits to the Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium, and the Field Museum - all very appealing. We took the Architectual Boat Tour and it was interesting and informative, greatly enjoyed it. We also did the Sky Deck at Willis Tower and it was OK, because we were in the middle of the Canadian wildfires and the haze did not allow for much sightseeing. We could barely see the boats docked at the lake! Not the fault of the City Pass, just poor timing, as we only had 4 days in town and couldn't reschedule. Otherwise, jumping the lines and the speedy entrances were appreciated.

      Emergencies happen. They don't care about helping they customer. The fact you do not have the option to talk to a human is stupid
