Well worth the money. We enjoyed over 8 sites and got to the front of a couple lines. We'd buy them again in our next trip to ChicagoReviewed by: Sean G, August 2013
This card is well worth the money. I visited 7 events, plus the 2-days hop-on/hop-off with the 2 day card. One thing to keep in mind is the "skip the line" only means bypassing the ticket purchasing line, not the fast pass.Reviewed by: Herbert Y, August 2013
Ended up enjoying our day with the card. However, we decided to redeem our paper voucher at a collection point, after searching for this place for half an hour we were told they no longer operated from this premises. Very disappointing, we were told they may have moved to Macy's. so we then went to the information centre and they told us to go to Palmer House. I had noted that one of the bus tours offered on the card were located in Palmer house, so we then searched for that building. After finding it hidden in the back of a Souvenir shop without even a sign on the front window, we were finally able to redeem our card and begin our day at 11am. It was annoying how difficult redeeming this card was at first, but it was easy to use for the rest of our day. Even though we didn't have enough time to do half the offers on the card. Wouldn't choose this option again, through Viator, unless the card is provided first.Reviewed by: Ady, Australia, September 2013
I had bought the go Boston card before and it was much better. In Chicago the onformation is not enough and it is a waste of time trying to get it and then to the attractions. The information in the little guide offered is false and not complete. Some attractions were nice thoughReviewed by: halima k, August 2013
The Go Chicago card is a real value for money, but the dampener was that the transport was provided which had poor frequency, they said every 15 mins frequency while I collected the tickets, but had to wait for a minimum of 45 mins at each stop, while I was waiting at each bus stop I could see the red chicago hop on hop off buses pass every 1-2 minutes.
I had taken a 2 day pass, and used it on a Sunday and Monday. The buses don't ply on Monday's so had to arrange my own transport. Would not recommend anyone buy the Go Chicago Card, there are better alternatives available. Also collecting the tickets is a painful process, as you have to collect the card from Macy's and then get the bus pass from the bus company office in Hilton, which was a 15-20 mins walk.Reviewed by: gliff, August 2013
