It was truly the way to go. Was able to buy upfront with no hassles!

It was an action packed vacation, to say the least. We truly enjoyed Boston and the history! The Whale watching was magnificent, but other tourists would about knock you down to see. So be prepared for that especially if you have small children, even they are not safe on the sunset cruise. With so much to do, it is hard to pack it all in and we had the 5 day pass. We got to about half of the events listed and a few that weren't..

The meeting place was not clear. Map not good. We lost 2 hours walking

Meeting place map was not good. We lost 2 hours looking for it. An address could have been an excellent choice! The 800 number helped but with the noise in the city?! You could just imagine our frustrations seeing the hop on hop off bus and could not get on it in Boston !?!? Also, bus drivers were asking us for tickets when we have digital ones. They should have scanners if we can hop on hop off in different stops.

Great Tour - be sure to do both lines - it's worth it!

Special shout out to Cowboy whose delivery was easy to follow for those not used to an American accent. Information provided by all drivers had personal reference so very nice in that regard. Deflinitely worth doing both lines to ensure you get all the stops and to do the loop a couple of times with different drivers for that personal perspective. The two day option is to be recommended also.

Weather prevented use in the time I had - so I spent too much money.

I ordered a 3-day pass, but unfortunately the 3rd nor'easter to hit Boston in March curtailed activity in the middle of my stay - thus I could only use the pass on one day. I enjoyed what I did (Museum of Fine Arts), but felt I had paid too much for only one activity. There was no way to receive credit and it is extremely unlikely that I will be back in Boston within a year.

Interesting & worth it as an ‘easy on the legs introduction to Boston

The tour hits most of the main sights with sometimes fun, sometimes annoying commentary from the drivers. The tour is reasonable value if booked online. The main criticism has to be too few buses at peak times with long waits at the stops, so you wouldn’t want to hop on & off too many times.
