    The pass did exactly what it was advertised to do. Admission to the places we wanted to see, plus the ability to bypass some long lines. While we didn't use the Macy's coupon for example, it was a nice extra perk.

    My family of 3 really enjoyed the benefits of the City Pass. It was very easy to exchange the printed coupon for our booklets at our first stop. The extra perks as a part of the Pass were very nice as well. We had very shortened wait times in lines to get into each venue. We will definitely check this out for future trips.

    City PASS could not be better. We even go VIP treatment at the Willis Tower as the wait was about an hour, we got in the City PASS lane for 5 minutes and then up the elevator. So much of the best sights in the city are included. Thanks.


    5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

    The city pass was the greatest gift we gave ourselves. We felt like we were vip's. The deal is amazing and all the extra's, like 10 off at gift shops, and other stores was great. Easiest and most convenient way to see all the museums or experiences in Chicago. LOVE IT!
