Definitely a deal.

Great way to see many sights when you have a limited time frame. The bus was our mode of transportation, but it turned out to be fun and informative too! Guides and drivers were good fun. Recommend!

A very enjoyable architectural boat ride. Our local expert was very knowledgeable. The audio equipment was very good and we had no problem hearing and understanding everything that was said. Chicago has a wealth of interesting and beautiful buildings. Highly recommend this tour.

Loved the flexibility that the Explorer Pass allows. Did eight different activities -- would recommend all except the Gray Line Scenic North Side and Historic South Chicago bus tours - had the same tour guide on different days - Antone - who was more interested in sending texts and spending time on Facebook on his phone than he was in telling us about our surroundings, history, etc.

Architectural Boat ride and Hop On/Hop Off tours were a must!

It was easy to buy, VERY easy to use and it definitely saved us money. Would definitely do the Explorer Pass if we get to go back again. Absolutely the way to go! The City Pass is also another great option but we did not have time to visit 5 attractions/tours/activities. They also give you a guidebook which is helpful.
