Alice, who is phenomenally well-read, did a fantastic job of telling us about the state capitol and the Naval Academy, and various Annapolis homes and institutions. Since it was in the 20s outside, we were her only two guests on the tour, so we got a wonderfully personalized experience. She was dressed in historic garb, which we found quite impressive... More

We took the 40 minute tour of the harbor. We had no reservations and purchased tickets about 20 minutes before the cruise where they fill up the boats. Judging from the length of the line, I was concerned that we would not make the cruise, but it turned out fine. The boat ride itself was relaxing with benches to sit... More

On a gorgeous sunny Sunday morning , it was a lovely thing to do, take a boat up the bay for an hour and a half. My only disappointment was the guide was a recording and not live, and the PA speaker at the rear was not working properly , so was hard to hear. Still very well worth it.

My wife and I took the bay cruise from Annapolis to St. Michael's Island. The trip was very pleasant! The ship was clean and comfortable. The crew was extremely friendly and courteous, we were late and they held the boat for us. Thank you. We had great weather and a really smooth ride. To help keep expenses down you might... More

This was our second tour (we did it last year too) and it was a great time. The tour guides dressed in period clothing were great. We loved the stories along the walking tour and the little stop at the WIlliam Paca House was great! I loved spending the evening walking around Annapolis.

I thoroughly enjoyed our Ghost trip of Annapolis with Mistress Allison. She was able to mix history with myths and facts about the Ghosts of Annapolis. My Granddaughter and Grandson thoroughly enjoyed it and they are teenagers and were not bored. When we arrived at Mr. Paca's house, the servant Patsy took over and when we went into the house,...

My family and I took the Special Historic Hauntings tour last Saturday and it was great! It was a cold blustery night after Halloween... what a perfect setting to hear the tales of the hauntings of Annapolis! Great stories of what life was like back then and our guide did a wonderful job dressed in period costume. Loved it and... More

It was a beautiful day on the Chesapeake. The cruise lets you see 3 lighthouses, go under the Bay Bridge, and see colorful foliage on shore. There were lots of sailboats to see and some anchored freighters. It was a great day on the Chesapeake. Highly recommend the 3 1/2 hour cruise.

We jumped on one of the watermark 45 min. bay cruises, leaving downtown Annapolis, and circling the bay, passing the Naval Academy. This was a wonderfully relaxing 45 min, with the weather completely cooperating with us. We had done the walking tour prior to this, so this gave our feet some welcomed rest. Various points of interest are pointed out... More
