would like for it to be more than 9 days! Sometimes you can't get it all done in 9 days. For example I bought this because we had a friend come from Chile and we thought it would help us save time. At the shedd we still had to stand in line like we were getting tickets.

Do NOT go through Viator
Jeanie_A
, Jul 2022
Strongly advise getting CityPASS, it’s a great value, but just do not do so via Viator. It is considered a third party app, it was a big hassle to get into every museum, event, etc. We had to open the original email every time rather than just show a code from the app.

Great excursion with my daughter. Line was fast and staff was polite. Coming from Florida, this was definitely amazing to see the old historic buildings and the new ones. Plus, you get an idea of just how massive Lake Michigan actually is.

Value of city pass is incredible. We were able to see a lot of great sights and had great experiences at most places. One negative is that I ordered tickets for Adler planetarium, received confirmation from Adler only to arrive at a CLOSED Adler planetarium. Not sure why I was able to order tickets when it was not open

I took my grandson to Chicago for his 17th birthday. He wanted to check out all the museums and the Lincoln park zoo. We did all that and more. The city pass and making advanced reservations for specific events made our trip so fun and easy.

Difficulty getting admission to attractions
Hector_B
, Sep 2021
I had issues with my viator passes being accepted at the Field museum and the Shedd Aquarium. This needs to be fixed. Looks like they needed a qr code and the tickets issued only have a bar code. At the Aquarium they were finally able to look at the information in the computer, but it's uncomfortable when the validity of the tickets is questioned.
