Best touring discount in the nation. I look for one in every city.

I had two days and wanted to get as much as possible in a limited time.?i was able to visit an aquarium, the zoo, and multiple museums where I got to skip lines and go straight to the turnstiles. Sea world and LEGO land included as well as many ocean activities. WOW

Easy and cost efficient way to see San Diego!

These Go Passes were super easy to use and allowed us to see so many different tourist attractions during the 5 day period that we definitely got our money's worth when you look at individual gate admission prices. Well worth the money!

this card allows entry into so many attractions and the trolley bus. well worth the money, we had zoo, safari, sea world, Midway and unlimited use of trolley buses. not enough time to do everything in 3 days
