We both thought the Explorer Pass was a good value. We knew we wanted to see four or five venues so this worked out for us.
We used the Explorer Pass for 3 activities- the Big Bus Tour, Willis Tower and the Architecture River Cruise. All 3 were top notch attractions. The only negative that I can mention is that the Willis Tower entry said skip the line, but it didn't really skip anything, although since it was not crowded it didn't really make much difference to us, but if you wanted to use it to skip a long line it apparently would not have done what you were expecting.
The tour on the Mississippi was just amazing. The buffet was great, nice friendly staff and the view was also great. We just loved this tour, was the best evening of our whole vacation. The only thing I felt was a pitty was that they lost our picture that was made in the beginning, I would have bought it if they didn't.
This was a great deal. And super easy to use at the 3 fabulous attractions we went to!
(Architectural Boat Tour, Double decker bus tour, and Museum of Science and Industry.) Would definitely buy again next time and hit different attractions.
We loved the Explorer pass.. It did indeed saved us .. The 5 attractions we picked were:
1 SkyDeck Chicago
2 The art institute of Chicago
3 Hop ON - Hop OFF Bus tour
4 Architecture Tour departing from Navy Pier
5 Centennial Wheel Navy Pier
Overall - The explorer pass is great and gives you much more flexibility comparing it to the CitiPASS.
Easy to use and lots of activities! Definitely worth the money. We purchased the 5 activity pass. Just wish the Shedd was included.
If you are going to any of the museums on Museum Campus in the fall, be sure to note the home football schedule. Soldier Field is right there and traffic can be insane.
Very handy knowing the places I wanted to go were covered in the card. If you want to use your card for the bus that you can hop in and off. I suggest you get your tickets early in the day as I wasn and #39;t able to get them after 5pm.
The Explorer Pass was awesome and savings. Highly recommend it.
We got to go sailing on the lake, Navy Pier rides, Museum of science was amazing, Sears tower, and river cruise. All were excellent! Chicago is a beautiful City with much to see and do!
Excellent way to see Chicago! Easy and affordable. I would highly recommend to anyone traveling.
Very easy to use and had no issues at all. Very well worth the price.
