Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value. We used it for the architecture tour, aquarium and skydeck. I am not a Chicago resident so it saved a ton at the aquarium for a family of 4. The selection of attractions you can choose is great. I will definitely buy it again to cover the rest of the attractions. Only thing we did not read was, that we need to make advanced reservation for skydeck tour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, easy to use, worth the $ Bought city pass for my trip and so glad I did. Made admission to my 3 venues so simple and easy. Especially the Ferris wheel at Navy Pier. No line to waiting, Easy to schedule and even easier to change times/reservation when needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good way to see Chicago for a 4 day trip! This is my second experience with CityPass. First was in Denver and loved it. This time I bought the C3 pass for the Windy City for my brother and I. We did the Shoreline Sightseeing Architecture River Tour; Skydeck Chicago; and Shedd Aquarium. All 3 experiences were awesome and made the trip better. My favorite was the Shedd Aquarium since I love penguins. Spent a good 3 hours there. My brother's favorite was the River Tour. Seeing the architecture was a good learning experience. The views from the Skydeck couldn't be beat. Walking on the glass platform was not scary but an unique experience. Will definitely buy another pass next time I'm in town.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent choice!! I bought the CityPASS and it was the best decision we made! We were a family visiting and it was nice to purchase online with the reservation and everything available! We were in, in no time to the museums and aquarium!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing I did for our trip! Family trip for the 3 of us to Chicago. We wanted to see some sights, but not have every minute of each day packed. The Chicago C3 pass let us do 3 "must see" spots in Chicago. Thanks to our timing we never had a wait at 2 of 3 attractions. Will definitely use CityPASS again when visiting other big cities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! I purchased the 3 events and it went great! Unfortunately I needed to change my dates on the original purchase and that was very easy to do! It was worth the cost and I’ll definitely be using it again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use & fast entry! My family of 6 plus two babies under 3 which were free bought 6 city passes and it’s definitely worth it! Super easy to use and no waiting in line. We went to the skydeck first and had no issues just scanned our tickets and then go. At the shedd aquarium there was a long line of people waiting. I went up and told them we had city pass and they allowed us to go through right away! We didn’t get to go to our 3rd attraction because the babies were exhausted! Definitely recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Value of Money&Time The CityPass gives you a good way to explore popular sites of the travel location. But there is one catch in here, you need plan your trip properly with timing then its total worth. One word of CityPass - Value for Money & Time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great way to save some money. We wanted to let our kids experience some of Chicago, the C3 pass was a good way customize our activities. On the Skydeck our group of 6 was too large for a single time slot, however a phone call to Citypass resolved this. They were able to split our group in two times, but we were all able to enter as a family when we arrived.
