Great videos, nice tour of a ship, fun acting, and very informative! We loved the shop and the tea is great! We also had sandwiches for lunch and sampled the historic teas. My favorite was the turkey dinner sandwich!

It was very interactive and the actors and actresses were really good. It's more than just walking through the ship. I would say more but I don't want to ruin the surprise.

This was a great experience. It was a theatrical walk through history with an opportunity to "throw tea into the harbour." The whole experience takes about and hour.

Well done and interesting but a little expensive, especially for a family of 4. Well enacted by the guides and good animations. Nice tea room too

This is such fun! It is a fully interactive, historical re-enactment/dramatization of the Boston Tea Party. The leaders all really know their stuff and are completely in character, whilst maintaining some humourous asides. You get to explore replica boats and throw the tea overboard. But,...More

The “barking crab” was extremely popular when I was in Boston. A second popular restaurant was “the daily catch seaport.” Neither did I try...but the amount of people at both was mostly local.

I think it's feasible to access the boat with a wheelchair or a similar device, but you might not find it easy to manoeuvre on to/on the ship. If should have someone with you who can lift it and move it by hand.

We bought tickets when we arrived but later noticed that there were coupon codes online that we could have used.
