    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
