"Got to visit LEGOLAND, museum of making music, and safari by San Diego zoo. Family and I just stayed for 3 days/2 nights so it felt like we didn’t have enough time to visit the rest of the included attractions w the go pass. Overall a good value though."

The difficulty getting my Travelzoo voucher validated and my passes sent to me via email. Instead of 6 hours, I had not received them 24 hours later. I called Travelzoo and had them call Chicago Pass. They said "they were busy and didn't get around to sending me my pass" Eventually, Tyler was able to get a hold of them and send me my validation email to obtain my passes. The person who sent me the email with validation code 8751775 did not attach anything to the email and when I tried to click on the printer friendly option, nothing happened. This should not require a brain surgeon to complete this transaction and I am frustrated beyond words. I am done with Travelzoo.....your name says it all....ZOO!

The timing of the sale for the go cards was timed perfectly since it’s almost the end of summer vacation for my kids. We were still checking out other attractions on the included list on our last day to used the go cards. I think we all decided to come back here and try them all next time. Hopefully there will be another sale or percentage off on the go cards. Overall a very good experience with ease of use and price.

Not really.

We had to travel in to Union Station to activate the pass foe each time we used it. The first tour we had intended to use was the evening tour of all the sites, we got there at 6:00 pm as was printed in the brochure only to be told that the tour was not going off until 7:30. We had not eaten dinner as we thought we would be back by 8:00 (it's a two hour hour tour) Given this change we would not return until 9:30 and not get back to our hotel until about 10 or maybe later. I ended up giving our tickets to a family with four children

Waiting 6 hours or more for the actual pass is a hassle.

The pass was easy pick up at the vendor!. The only negative is that the vendor can't give you advice on things to do because they are also selling competing things/excursions to do... But talk with people/tourists in the office and on tours and you learn quickly recommendations to do!!

The cooking class and bus tour were definite must do's... I wish we could have upgraded on the ultimate gator adventure to the fan boats but it was not allowed

We used the 3 day pass and we’re able to see many of the attractions. We saved soooo much money! All of the tours were top notch and highly rated.

The pass is a huge savings. We got the 3 day pass and probably could have purchased another day at least. It was very helpful to use the guide and map to all the included attractions provided. We were able to schedule our days by area and attraction. I’d purchase it again in a heartbeat.
