Who are Go City and how do your passes work?
We're glad you asked. We are Go City and we're here to revolutionize the way you vacation. Our passes give you access to San Diego's top attractions, and what's more, we make it super easy.
All you've got to do is choose the pass that works for you, then you’re all set to explore.
What's the difference between an All-Inclusive Pass and an Explorer Pass?
We know that no two sightseers are the same, that's why we offer two pass options. For those who want to see as much as possible, we've got All-Inclusive passes. Choose how many days you want your pass to be valid for, and then visits as many attractions as you wish.
And for those of you who are a little pickier, we've got the Explorer Pass. With this pass, you can select how many attractions you wish to visit, and you'll then have 60 days to do so. Plus, there's no need to decide which ones you'll visit before you purchase, so you'll still be able to keep your plans flexible.
Does my pass include transportation?
While our passes don't include public transport, they do have a variety of tours and sightseeing buses to choose from. Some might say that's even better than a busy public bus. Just saying.
What is the age range for a child pass?
Our child passes are for ages three to 12.
Why didn't I get a confirmation email?
Purchased a pass but still waiting for your confirmation email? Or has your order been declined? If so, it may be due to one of the following reasons…
- You submitted an incomplete or incorrect billing address.
- Your 3D Secure authentication failed.
- Your bank did not process the transaction as a safety precaution and requires further authorization from you.
- There was a typo in the email address.
If you’re sure that all of the above details were correct, please contact us via live chat so we can help resolve the issue.
Oh, and don’t forget to double check your junk folder – sometimes our confirmation emails accidentally end up there.
Purchasing a pass
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept PayPal, Google Pay, and Apple Pay as well as most debit and credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.
Who do I contact if I have trouble purchasing?
First off, are you sure you are using the correct billing address (it's the one listed on the bank statement)? Still no luck? Then give our customer services team a call using the phone numbers at the bottom of this page. They'll be happy to help.
How will I receive my pass?
Once you've purchased your passes, you'll receive a confirmation email with details on how to download and activate them.
Can I upgrade my pass after purchasing?
Sorry, we aren't offering pass upgrades at this time.
Can I purchase a pass for someone else?
Of course! Just be sure to add their name and email address at checkout.
Do you offer group discounts?
Yep! If you're traveling with a group of 10 or more, you may be eligible for a group discount. Email [email protected] or fill out our group travel form to learn more about our special rates. You can also give us a call on +1 855-397-6598 if you'd prefer. It's time to get the gang together and start planning your San Diego trip!
Do you offer military or senior citizen discounts?
Sorry, we don't. Our passes already give you great savings on sightseeing, so, unfortunately, we can't offer any further discounted rates on individual passes.
Do you ship passes?
Woah, woah, woah. It's the 21st Century. We've gone digital. You'll receive your passes via email so you can print them off, download the PDF to your phone, or sync them to the Go City app. Convenience is king after all!
Can I use my confirmation email to enter attractions?
Unfortunately not. You'll need to have your pass on the Go City app, or have the PDF downloaded to your phone or printed in order to enter attractions.
How much can I save with Go City?
Our customers save up to 50% vs. buying individual tickets at top attractions (the sights you guys visit the most).
Our savings compare the Go City price with the combined 'normal ticket values' of each attraction on our sample itineraries. Individual savings may vary. Normal ticket values include taxes and are the price you pay at the most popular time to visit without discounts.
Please note prices at attractions can vary without notice to Go City. Normal ticket values were last updated on April 1, 2023.
Using your pass
How does the Go City app work?
The Go City app is your key to exploring San Diego. Download for free to your Apple or Android device and then follow the instructions in your confirmation email to sync your pass to the app. Once you arrive in San Diego, all you've got to do is show your pass at each attraction - easy.
Plus, we've loaded the app with plenty of useful attraction info, itineraries, and much more to make planning and exploring even easier.
How do I activate my pass?
Your pass will activate when you scan it at your first attraction.
Can I visit the same attraction more than once with my pass?
With an All-Inclusive Pass, you can visit each attraction once per day for the duration of your pass. So, say you didn't quite make it around a museum before closing time, you can always go back the following day (if the attraction doesn't require a booking, of course).
And with an Explorer Pass you can only visit each attraction once.
Can other people use my pass?
Pfft, this isn't your ex's Netflix account. Our passes cannot be resold or used by more than one person. We're sorry about that!
Do I need to make reservations to enter attractions?
Some attractions may require a reservation. You can find out which ones need to be booked in advance by visiting our All-Inclusive Pass reservations page or our Explorer Pass reservations page. Just remember that, if you need to make a booking to visit an attraction, your pass must be valid on the day that you visit.
When will my pass expire?
Well, it depends.
If you have purchased an Explorer Pass, you'll have 60 days from first use to visit your remaining attractions.
With an All-Inclusive Pass, it will activate when you visit your first attraction. It will then be valid for the number of consecutive days which you have purchased.
Non-activated Explorer and All-Inclusive passes are valid for two years from the date of purchase.
