How it works

What do you mean by "consecutive calendar days"?

"Consecutive calendar days" are days in a row, on a calendar. A calendar day is not a 24-hour period.

For example, if you have a 3-Day Go Boston Card and visit your first attraction on a Monday evening, it is valid for the remainder of Monday (1st calendar day) and the two days immediately following it: Tuesday (2nd calendar day), and Wednesday (3rd calendar day).

Tip: to get the most out of your pass, plan to visit attractions early in the day.

Is this just a discount card? Will I still need to buy tickets?

No. Passes include admission to each attraction; no need to pay anything at the gate. Some attractions may offer upgrades or special exhibits for an additional fee.

Do I need to choose my attractions in advance?

Nope, you can choose from the included attractions as you go.

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.

How will I get my pass?

Instantly! Choose between 2 options:

  • Use your pass right on your phone with the free Go City Card app.
  • Print your pass and guidebook at home.

Links and easy-to-follow instructions for both options will be in your confirmation email.

How do I "activate" my card?

Simply visit your first attraction!

Is my card valid all day?

Yes. You can enter attractions any time with the Go Boston Card.

What is your refund policy?

Our Risk Free Guarantee gives you one year from your purchase date to return any non-activated passes for a full refund.

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.

Can I purchase passes on the spur of the moment when I arrive in Boston?

Of course! With instant digital delivery, you can purchase and access passes right on your mobile device. Or, visit one of our local purchase locations.

Does a Go Boston Card expire?

Yes. You have one year from the date of purchase to begin using your pass. After one year, it will expire.

How much will I save?

Compare the price of the pass to the gate prices of the attractions you want to visit to see how much you can save. Or, check out some real savings examples from Go City Card customers to see how much they actually saved!

We give you the flexibility to create your own itinerary and choose the attractions you want to visit depending on your interests.

For inspiration, check out some of our sample itineraries, insider tips, and more for info on all the fun things to do in Boston so you can make the most of your time here.

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.

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.

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’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.

Can I share my pass with a friend or sell it?

No. The Go Boston Card is non-transferrable and may not be re-sold.

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!

I still have questions!

Please feel free to call us at 800‑887‑9103 and we’ll be happy to help you!

Note: A Go Boston Card is non-transferable. This means that once you start using it, you are the only person who can use it to get into attractions. Go Boston Cards may not be re-sold.

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston® Card All-Inclusive Pass:

We were able to see SO much more using the Go card than if we had tried to do everything without it! We visited the aquarium, zoo, rented bikes, rode the trolley and more. It was great not having to worry about paying for each place separately, and we enjoyed the ease of it all.

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston® Card All-Inclusive Pass:

We visited Boston in late September and purchased the 3 day all inclusive Go Boston Card. We spent our arrival day just walking around getting a feel for the city. On our first full day we had an idea where everything was and we activated our card. With a little planning we were able to plan our day to see the maximum amount of attractions. The 2 day trolley was used for day 2 and 3 and it was great to get easy access to the attractions that were further away. We haven't totaled our savings but I'm sure we saved at least 50% for the attractions we were able to fit in. We were able to see everything we wanted and a couple more that weren't included. The Freedom Trail guided tour was fabulous. Would be nice if the Tea Party Museum was added as a premium attraction because it was well worth seeing.

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston® Card All-Inclusive Pass:

We used the card to go to all of the historic sights in Boston and also traveled outside of Boston too- Plymouth Plantation, Salem, Sturbridge Village and included with the 7 day pass- Free Whale Watching! We saw so many Humpback Whales! We really used the Go Boston Card and saved SO MUCH money for our family of 4. We also saw ALOT more because so much was included for the one price.

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston® Card All-Inclusive Pass:

The card was easy to use and the instructions on how to use it at each site were very helpful. My only complaint was that we were unable to go on the duck tour because it was booked every time we tried to get on it.

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston® Card All-Inclusive Pass:

It took the stress out of sightseeing as I knew that we could go use the bus to get to and from places and not have to worry about always buying a ticket or trying to get to the subway. The only thing that was a bit confusing was that there were no specified lines at the places that accept the GoCard so we did end up waiting in line at a couple of places, I had thought that there were lines designated for the GoCard holders.
