Our tour of the William Paca House and Garden was a delightful experience. The tour guide for the house did a wonderful job of explaining how the house was used when the Paca family lived there, and how the house and garden were restored from their earlier existence as a hotel and parking lot. The garden is in the old... More

The ladies were very gracious when asked questions, even though they were very busy, the grounds are stunning.

We enjoyed our tour of the gardens (at our own pace) than got to go on a tour with an informative and passionate docent that made the building and it's long - ago residents come to life.

The house & history are interesting, even if most of it is pieced together & not entirely accurate. The house is well maintained. The gardens were full of puddles from the severe rains so it would be nice to go back when all's in bloom! Our tourguide went about 30 min over, but the info was pretty interesting!

A friend and I did our best to hit all the historical homes in Annapolis and we clearly saved the best for last. Tours begin on the half hour and last about an hour.We did miss out on the last tour of the day when we arrived as it filled just as we arrived, so make a point to arrive... More

We were recommended to go up to this house for a "wonderful tasting of historic chocolates." Well, it was not worth the effort. The house is interesting although nothing much is original since it was used as a hotel and almost destroyed before restoration. The guides were nice but not nearly as knowledgeable as I would have like and seemed... More

Knowledgeable tour guides, beautiful house, great history, and fabulous gardens that you can walk in as long as you want after the tour. Highly recommended. We went as a family of 6 and all were impressed.

Spent a lovely evening with Mr. Paca last night at the William Paca home on King George Street in Annapolis, MD! Great evening out with my father for an early Father's Day gift. Tasted three brews out of Philadelphia provided by Mills Wine and spirits in downtown Annapolis. My favorite was the George Washington's Tavern Porter, a smooth molasses flavor.... More
