  • Great Chicago Travel Guide

    by quico78

    I've really liked, I went to Chicago with my kids last month and we were at Illinois Center, Burnham Park and at the Chicago Harbour Lighthouse, the guide was helpful, it's always better than carrying a real book. We liked the augmented reality feature and the maps. Way to go etips!

  • Worthless!

    by Worthless for Chicago

    Only a few suggestions, only 5 hotel choices, a few restaurants given. The free guides are 100% better. Don't bother with this one. Save your $.

  • Not satisfactory

    by JEH-MI

    I agree with the other review - so limited as to be useless

  • Don't waste your money!

    by Ooohvic

    Very limited searches. For example with all the restaurants and hotels in Chicago they have them divided into categories based on cost ranges. There are only about five restaurants and five hotels in each category. I suspect those listed sponsored the app. Two thumbs down.

  • Not worth the price

    by Mike Zavala

    It does have some nice pictures but you really can't favorite any of the places you want to see. It does have history info on most of the areas.. But again, for a first time visitor it's not helpful with favoring places
