Went here to get an overview literally and figuratively of Boston. We used the audio and enjoyed the information shared at each of the stops. It was a clear day and views were amazing! The side stops were fun as well - questions to citizenship,...More

I could come back on the same ticket by night. No extra fee. That was in September 2017. Bring your ID, since the guard at the entrance writes down the details of your ID/passport.
