I think this is absolutely the way to go! I made the mistake of only purchasing a 1 day ticket only though, you must get at least the 2 day ticket! I have already recommended to this to friends planning a trip to Chicago!! I will definitely purchase one again when I make my next trip to Chi Town!!

Using the Go Chicago card was a great way to see multiple venues during one trip. We got our monies worth out of it. We went on a very busy weekend and appreciated getting into venues quickly.

I can't even begin to list all the reasons this was the best decision we made about this vacation! This was the first time we took our granddaughter on vacation and the choices that are available with the Go Chicago Card are wonderful. We got the two-day card and we were able to do just about everything we had planned on doing. The next time we will probably go with the three-day card, just to be able to experience even more. Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful way to see Chicago!!!

This card is totally worth it if you are ready to get a bunch of sightseeing done in one day. I think it was a better deal than the Chicago CityPass.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

We purchased the 2 day tour. Had a great time! We planned our trip to make the most of the many options available and routed the days to utilize the trolley to our advantage. We enjoyed museums, the Hancock/Willis, Navy Pier, boat architecture tour and more. We tried hard but not take advantage of all the option available. Would have been a worth a 3rd day if our schedule allowed. I will highly recommend this for any visitors to Chicago. Great bargain price.

We used many of the museum and bus tour features. It was very, very nice to go to the front of the line as the sights of Chicago became busier during the day. Definitely will recommend to our friends and family!
