What people are saying about Salem

We bought the 2 day ticket for Boston. The hop on hop off trolley was worth it alone. But then we got to Revere house, USS Constitution, Aquarium, Harbor Cruise and we barely scratched the list of what is included. Just doing those few things it paid for itself in 1 day! All the sites we talked about the pass to knew what we were talking about. This is legit. 100% recommend

It had tons of fantastic activities and the PDF guide was so helpful with time frames, addresses, open-close time and how to reserve time slots! Great pass and a real asset to our trip to Boston!

Aquarium and Sci Museum for a great rate. Saved $ and had an awesome time.

Great pass! Saved us so much on entrance fees! We’ll worth the price.

Trust It Is Worth It! Can’t Wait To Be Back & Do It All Over Again!
