I will be all over the MA/RI area from July 25-28th (Boston, Providence, Warwick, Newport, Boston, Springfield, and Boston again). On the 26th I'm taking a Peter Pan bus up from Newport (touring the mansions that morning) and will get to Boston South Station at around 3:40pm. Here's the thing- I REALLY want to take a Fenway tour...but I'm slightly paranoid that by the time I get there (by cab or rail) to buy a ticket for the 5pm tour, it will be sold out. Does this REALLY happen often? I mean, an hour in advance should be good, right?
Also, about how much will a cab from South Station to Fenway run me? Google maps says it's only about 10 minutes away, but depending on your city it could be $5 or $30 for that ten minutes....Help!!Edited: 3:05 pm, June 28, 2013
