Frequently Asked Questions

What are "consecutive calendar days"?

"Consecutive calendar days" are days in a row.

If you have a 3-Day card, and you visit your first attraction on a Monday, your card will be valid on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Start your day early to get the most out of your card!

How do I "activate" my card?

Simply visit your first attraction!

How many days should I buy?

Most travelers visit between 2 and 3 attractions each day depending on individual preference. Our most popular card is the 3-Day card.

Is my card valid all day?

You can enter attractions until 5:30pm with the Go Boston Card.

What is your refund policy?

We know sometimes travel plans change, even at the very last minute. That's why, if you don't end up activating and using your pass within a year of the purchase date, we'll give you a full refund. No questions asked.

Here's the best part: unlike our competitors, this built-in cancellation insurance comes with every card purchase — free of charge.

If you have any questions, or if you would like to initiate a refund anytime within 1 year of your purchase, please call our Customer Care Team at 800-887-9103. We'll tell you how you can return your non-activated card or pass.

How much will I save?

How many attractions can I visit in one day?

On a Go Boston Card, you can visit as many attractions as you want in a day from 9:00am-5:30pm.

Can I visit an attraction more than once?

In most cases, you can visit each attraction once per day. Some attractions are valid only once during the life of the pass. Please reference your guidebook for specific information on each attraction.

What is the age cut off for child cards?

Child cards are for children ages 3-12. Most attractions do not charge for children under 3 years old. However, there are some exceptions (especially children's museums and attractions geared toward very young travelers). If you have a child under 3 years old, please check with the attraction directly in advance. You may be charged at the gate.

Do I need to make reservations to visit the attractions?

Attractions that require a reservation will display this symbol on the guidebook page.

Some attractions require a credit card to hold a reservation. In these cases, your credit card will not be charged unless you do not show up for your reservation.

What happens if an attraction is closed or a tour is cancelled due to weather or other problem?

While we do our best to ensure that all attractions are available, events happen that are out of our control. The great thing about a Go Boston Card is that there are so many attractions to choose from. If an attraction is closed, or cannot be visited for some reason, we know you'll find a fun alternative in your guidebook!

What do I do if my Go Boston Card is lost or stolen?

Unfortunately, it cannot be replaced if it is lost or stolen. Please treat the card like cash.

What’s the catch?

There’s no catch. Go Boston Card has a partnership with all of the participating attractions to make your visit to Boston as memorable as possible and to help you save time and money.

I still have questions!

Buyer Beware
By Kevan Anderson from Niagara Falls , Canada on
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

was promised 3 days of shuttle service with beantown trolley but only could get 2 days. Trolley ALWAYS too full to get on. Skyway not included as promised.Fenway not included. The other pass might be Ok but this one is a RIP OFF > $240 for two people for 3 days? Save $ and go with a charlie pass on subway and pay for your own attractions separately.

Smart Destinations Response: Our team at Smart Destinations takes customer feedback serious and are always available to help any customer while they are in market. We are assuming that you purchased a 3-day Go Boston Card and apologize if there was any confusion – We do include the Hop/on – Hop/off trolley tour and allow for 2 consecutive days of use on any of our Go Boston Card durations – even our 1 day Boston Go Card gets 2 days of Trolley use – we do call this out on the Go Boston Card page. We apologize that you may have had to deal with excess crowds during your visit – we are having some amazing weather in Boston, which of course increases the tourist and locals. You are correct that the Skywalk Observatory is not included with the Go Boston Card but is included with our custom build Go Select Product and do apologize if there was confusion when you purchased. We encourage all of our customers to reach directly out to our Customer Service team whenever they may be confused or need assistance with any of our products. We do hope you will give us another try in any future trip.

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

Boston was fantastic but Unless your willing to jump thru hoops chase around the different companies and willing to be told more times than I can count NO thats not our company! Dont bother with the Boston Go Card. I bought four (5 day cards) and spent way to much and could not use them but two places. The best thing about the purchase was the Guidebook.

Our team goes through great length setting up and maintaining our attraction relationships and can say that any attraction listed on our web site or within your included guidebook will accept our Go Boston card unless other wise specified. I encourage you to reach out directly to our customer care team at 866-628-9032 – knowing the attractions you encountered this issue with will help us identify possible training deficiencies so we can ensure it doesn’t happen in the future. We encourage all of our customers who may encounter in market challenges to call our customer care team while at the attraction in order for our team to rectify the issue and get your on your journey quickly.

Freedom Trail, Fenway, Paul Revere House, Total Experiance Tour
Cons:

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

I wasn't aware that the hop on/off trolley ticket was good for two days. Trolley comes around every 40 or so min but there is no schedule so when you get to a stop you don't know how long you will have to wait.spend some time planning your days so that you don't go from one side of town then back to the other over and over. If Italian food is a must goto 355 Hanover Giacomos . For Canollis mikes pastries also on Hanover st.

Great Deal
By pl_1967 from PA on
Pros:
Easy to use, Great Value
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

We just returned from a week trip to the Boston area, and used the Go card for everything. We really saved a lot of money and on the one rainy day we had, we were able to change our plans at the last minute and not have it cost us any more money. The card was easy to use at every site we went. I would say based on comments from the vendors that if you had the plastic type card, which we did, they worked best. We did Plymouth, Salem, Lexington, Concord, Old Sturbridge & Boston. If you have time...wait till these cards go on sale for even better value.

Great Value
By Vacation Bound from Toronto, Ont on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

We were on a weeks vacation, so actually bought 2 separate 3 day Go Boston Cards. We usedthe first 3 days in Maine and rented bikes, did the Baseball Hall of Fame, JFK Museum, Nantucket Ferry and Hyannis Boat Tour. Later in the week we did Boston and did Seguay Tour as our Bonus, Tall Ships, Trolley, Fenway Park Tour, Harvord Tour and Aquarium. Saved hundreds of $$ and wouldn't have seen so much without the value of the Go Card. Highly recommend!!

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

I came across the Go Card when I was booking a birthday trip for my mom's 60th birthday. I had never visited Boston and the Go Card offered a variety of sites to see and travel ideas for us as first time travelers. It was a great value and I plan to buy again on my next trip.

Get the go Boston card!
By Warrenprof from Chehalis, WA on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

This card was such a great bargain. It saved me over $150 in the different attractions. The best way to use the card is to get online and look at all of the attractions. Plan to do several things in one day and with close planning you can have a great trip and enjoy many of the sites of Boston at such a discount. The tall ships was awesome,

I saved over $200.00!
By Sara11Jayne Verified Reviewer from Baltimore, Maryland on
Pros:
Easy, 5 star customer service, Great savings, Affordable
Cons:
Pick up location, Time limit to attractions,
Best Uses:
Beantown Trolley, Science Museum, Six flags, Salem Witch Musuem Aquarium Whale watching
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

This is not a discount card--it actually covers the cost of your admission to the included attractions. There were over 50 to choose from when we travelled. I was able to save almost $250 and do activities we could not have afforded otherwise, for two of us with this card. We found attractions not heavily advertised elsewhere, were able to use the Trolley for 2 days transportation around the city, and it even covers some places outside of Boston itself: Six Flags, Salem, Cape Cod... I am usually an avid planner, so my teenage daughter and I definitely made the most out of the three day pass, despite staying about an hour north of Boston. My only complaint was the pick up option we chose, since this was a last minute trip, we purchased with the pick up option and had trouble finding parking to actually pick up the card on our way to Six Flags the first day.

Loved having everything pre-paid
By Glen Verified Reviewer from Ontario -- Canada on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

We booked our cards in the winter for even greater savings (They are good for 365 days). [$] for the 3 day pass. I figure I saved $120 per card. Total of almost $500 for my family of 4. Plus what we saved at a couple of restaurants. Try to plan your days to get the most out of your cards. Which isnt as easy as you think -- dont forget how tiring holidays can be. The tall ships are a great break from the hustle of the rest of your holidays. The segways were our bonus choice and I cant recommend them highly enough (they book up fast). 100 percent get these cards.

Love you, Boston Card!!
By Somebody's Mom Verified Reviewer from Maryland on
Pros:
By-pass lines, Terrific Value, Saved money, Easy to use
Best Uses:
Fenway Park, Aquarium, Whale watch, By-passing long lines
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

Our first visit to Boston and we got to see and do so much more because of the card. Everything was prepaid, so no standing in long lines. Most places are within walking distance, so was easy to visit at least 3 attractions/day. Before buying card, compare what's included on card with what you want to do, to see if card is cost effective for you. We were in Boston only 2 days and I figure we saved at least $40.00 per card.
