How it works

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.

Please note: Activated passes are non-refundable.

What delivery method should I choose?
  • Having your cards shipped in advance will save you time traveling to a pick up location when you get there. Note that transit times vary depending on shipping options. View delivery options.
  • With in-city pickup you can get a physical card and full-color printed guidebook without waiting for shipping. We will email you a voucher which can be redeemed for passes at one of our voucher redemption locations.
Do you ship Go Boston Cards to hotels?

Sorry, we cannot ship to hotels because of delivery concerns.

I have a voucher, where can I pick up my card?

View a list of in-city pickup locations where you can redeem your voucher for cards.

Where can I buy the cards in Boston?

View a list of sales locations in Boston. Note that in-city purchases are available for full price only.

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. Many customers save more than 50%.

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!

Please feel free to call us at 866‑628‑9027 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.

You should treat your Go Boston Card like cash. If it is lost or stolen, it cannot be replaced.

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.

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

There was a wide range of activities available for many different interests. My only real con was that once started you couldn't stop. With the temperatures so high, it would have been nice to have had a break in activities. (we had the 5 day card)

LOVE the GO CARDS!!
By MP Verified Reviewer from Slidell, LA on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

I just got back from Boston, used the 5 day card for Boston and Newport RI. My husband and I saved at least 110.00 each and we did a lot more things than we normally would have done. Like the aquarium, we only had an hour before it closed, but since it was on the card we went in and still were able to see the highlights, otherwise we would have not paid since we would not have gotten our money's worth. All the venders were happy to take the card, had no problems at all. We had also used the Blue Ridge Go card during the summer and it was great also. I look forward to going many more places that have the Go Card!! Just plan your time so you can get the most out of the card, and you will love it.

By Bob from PA from Columbia, PA on
Pros:
Convenient good value
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

This is a great card IF you plan the trip. We had an alternative plan for rain and it did for a day and a half (8/14-8/15/11). We toured the National Aquarium and Children's Museum as inside activities on the rain day. We only completed these 2 things on that day which is why planning is important. Also, many places are only open 9 or 10 to 4 or 5 so don't plan to see everything due to travel time between destinations and the time to see it. Plan a few things a day for what you may do and then do a comparison between just paying the admission and the card. It is convenient and it also saved us time in lines, like the Aquarium, as we could just walk to the desk and be admitted. (The Aquarium had a long line at 9:00 when it opened and we avoided it). I would recommmend the card.

Bottom Line:

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

I ordered my cards b4 we left and pre-booked the Whale watch and Brunch cruise which was a great idea. Both were great! Keep in mind whale watch on open water-take gravol b4 you go! The trolley tour was great. Fenway Park tour enjoyable. If you want to see a lot of Boston in a short time this is a great way to do it!My husband lost sun glasses on trolley and the kind staff return them to us the next day!!

Over all good experience
By Mandy Verified Reviewer from London Ontario Canada on
Pros:
Jump the line, Everything prepaid
Cons:
Time restrictive,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

Overall the experience was good... I feel like we got our money's worth out of the card... if we didn't have our own vehicle it would have been difficult to get from one attraction to another... the hop on hop off trolloy was a major pain... couldn't find the ticket pickup near the commons went to the prudential centre that one was hard to find... spent 2 hours trying to get the ticket then waited for over 30 minutes at a pick up spot and no trolloy came so we gave up... we were really looking forward to this that was the most frustrating part of using this ticket...

Family Trip
By Maryberry Verified Reviewer from Buffalo, NY on
Pros:
No hassle, Easy to use, Good Value
Best Uses:
Whale watch, Duck tour, Aquarium
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go Boston Card:

My sisters and I planned a family trip, and purchased the 3 day card. We took the Duck Tour, Freedom Trail tour, Fenway Park Tour, Boston Massacre tour at Old State House, Whale Watch, Swan Boats, and went to the Aquarium twice.(one day we went in around 4 and the next day we went in for an hour, while waiting for the whale watch...best part...we didn't have to wait in the LONG LINE!) We also went to the Museum of Fine Art to see the Chihuly Exhibit.We definitely felt we got our money's worth..it saved time, and we weren't always looking for money..We ordered the cards a few weeks before our trip,had them sent and then planned all the things we wanted to see and do.We also used the discounts for souvenirs.Whale watch was awesome...whales were up close and way too many to count. Tour guides at Fenway and Freedom Trail were terrific. (it was 95 degrees and our tour guide kept my 9 year old nephews interest for the 90 minute tour.Just can't say enough about our weekend..and really give alot of credit to having the card and preplanning.Keep the book handy..We were going to do the Trolley Tour and went to Quincy Market to pick up the tickets...it was no longer there..but I called and they told me how to get to the nearest spot..unfortunately we ran out of time and never did the Trolley. Everyone is very helpful.PS. If you want an early Duck Tour..get to the Prudential Center..get in line by 8:15-they open at 8:30. (We got a 10:30 tour...but we needed 7 seats.Same thing for Fenway Park..we got to the Team Store at 8:30- we got on the 9:00 tour.
