We got our moneys worth by visiting a number of the attractions available with the Go Boston card. Most of the time we walked to the Attractions because it was quicker them waiting for the Beantown Trolley buses. A lot of the Attractions were only about 10-20 minutes walk from the Long Wharf, but to wait and take the Trolley buses it took us about 60-80 minutes. All so the Movie and TV tour was very good and informative but started in one location and finished in a different location. A lot of the tourists had no idea how to get back to the start location

Unfortunately, we were only able to use this twice. We stayed in provincetown and no one took this card nice to have but was a waste for us.

Note from Viator: Thanks for your review, Geraldine. We decided to ask the Go Boston Card staff about your question, and here is their reply:
'We are happy to explain why the Boston Duck Tour can only be boarded at the Museum of Science ticket location. The reason is the Boston Duck Tour is a VERY popular attraction and their Prudential Center ticket location often sells out very far in advance. We want to ensure that as many of our customers as possible are able to enjoy this tour, so we direct all customers to the Museum of Science ticket location, where you have the best opportunity to get a seat. The Museum of Science ticket location is still crowded, but it is less crowded than the Prudential Center location. The tour route covers the same sites and both locations are easily accessible by public transportation (the Green Line). Please note that a reservation is not mandatory, but we highly suggest it since tickets often sell out far in advance. Of course, you can always take your chances and show up early in the morning to reserve a seat.'
Note from Viator: Thanks for the review Melinda. Here's a reply from the staff at Go Boston Card, just so you have their perspective as well:
'If you have time to experience even just one additional activity while you are visiting, then the Go Boston Card will save you money. The Go Boston Card includes admission on a 2-day hop-on hop-off trolley tour, which by itself retails for around $42. If you are able to squeeze in just the New England Aquarium for instance (a $19.95 value), then a 1-day pass has already saved you $7 per person, since our 1-day Go Boston Card typically sells for $54.99.'
