Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 585 reviews

I love that this pass includes five attractions. I wish, however, the reservation process was explained better and the add-ons were clearly mentioned so that I didn’t have to get out of lines. You cannot easily make the reservations for places like the museum, Sky Deck, and Tilt. Everything was great. Tilt is not worth the money. You’re not even at a 45 degree angle and the attraction is not even two minutes. The views at the Sky Deck are much better.

Nothing really to say, just a pass with some attractions chosen. If you find a discount to the site getyourguide you can get this cheaper than in the actual go city pass site.

Unbelievable thanks to CityPASS, so easy to use very reliable and cheap too ! Will definitely be recommending to friends and family

It was excellent, I only recommend providing more information about the places included, such as address and hours

Not a right time in Chicago, but the citypass is perfect. Will buy it again when I visit Chicago in Summer
