We traveled a group of 8 adults and a girl to Chicago, 1 of us speaks fluent English, the rest is basic (this was a problem), the GO CHICAGO pass works perfectly I recommend it, I recommend going to the aquarium example distraction and leaving the car in the aquarium parking all day 35 usd since the rest of the attractions are very close, in all you only indicate the pdf with the code that they send you to the mail and the people in orange or green easily help you. Then you go to the car and you should not walk much. TOTALLY RECOMMENDED GO CHICAGO!

Lived in Chicago my whole life and should've visited sooner!! Such a beautiful and wonderful museum! We're going back for sure. :)

Cheap, easy and fun. Your attention in very effective and timely chat, they always have service !!! I recommend it

Very good, the only thing you need to enjoy everything is to go for at least one week

A very nice view of the city and time to relax and unwind from the long walks
