The GoCity Explorer Pass was so convenient. When downloading the passes and booking reservations (required for some attractions), just make sure to install the app and use the correct e-mail address provided by GetYourGuide in a separate e-mail (not the same as your GetYourGuide e-mail).

It was an amazing experience to admire the skyline from such a perspective, truly awe-inspiring. It was absolutely worth the expense.

Spectacular, I loved it, the use of the app was excellent without problems
