The gondolas pick up at The Esplanade in front of the Hatch Shell. Enter The Esplanade at the corner of Beacon St. and Arlington St. (just left of Cheers and across from Boston Public Gardens). At the light, cross the orange Arthur Fiedler Footbridge. Directly in front of you, next to the Esplanade Cafe, you'll see our green, white and gold gondola poles. Tours depart right on time, so please arrive 10-15 minutes early.

The Hatch Shell is a half-dome venue on The Esplanade that hosts Boston's most popular outdoor musical events, including the famous annual July 4th Boston Pops concert.
