Worth the $

This pass is totally worth it because it will save you $$. If you are visiting during COVID I suggest you call the attractions first to make sure they are open and some attractions require booking a reservation. Just coordinate your tours and you should be set.

The City Pass was very good value for money. An extra bonus was the Fast Pass for The museums and the 360 at the Hancock Centre. The free film at the Aquarium and the free audio guide for the Art Institute were also great value

Can't do it all, should have planned only one venue per day
Melissa G
, Oct 2019
We were able to use only two of the tickets due to the hours of venues and distance and fatigue, and our timeframe.The Field and the Art Museum take so much time, and we didn't even see all of either one. Am very disappointed we didn't get to the Shedd ot the planetarium. It was expensive to keep taking cabs to various places that looked walkable on the map.

I'm sorry you were not able to fit in all the attractions. There is so much to see that you can easily spend a day at each

Excellent Pass to see Chicago

The Chicago CityPASS was an excellent way to see some of the best museums and landmarks for the city. We easily saved over $70-$80 each with the pass and it allowed you special perks at most of the venues. You will need a few days to go through some of the massive museums, but well worth it.

We really enjoyed our CityPASS for Chicago. It was definitely less expensive than buying the tickets individually. Plus, at all of the attractions, we were able to jump at the head of the line. That's huge.

This is a nicely thought-out program to get tourists the best experience. If a Ventra card for the transit system were included, that would be even easier.
