How to use Go City Pass

Save your budget with the Paris Pass

Traveling to an unfamiliar city is very exciting. Nevertheless, creating an optional plan that maximizes time efficiency can prove to be quite challenging. It is also not easy to make all the reservation for each tourist attraction and find local restaurants or activities familiar to the locals.
GO city is a mobile application which provides a variety of admission tickets to local tourist attractions in an all-inclusive format to help travel enthusiasts enjoy activities exclusively at the destination. The usage is very simple. We have prepared a detailed guide for you on how to select, purchase, and use the Gocity pass.
