This is a 40 minute quick paced tour of historic Annapolis. Great way to get a quick overview of town history town layout for further exploration. The enclosed trolley kept us warm and dry in the chilly temperature.

It wasn't too hot and my butt withstood the hard wood seats. It was a decent tour of the downtown area and some environs. I especially liked the info about St. John's College and their ace croquet team. But, as always, it's hard to take "grandeur" alongside the practice of slavery.

This very enjoyable and interesting trolley tour of Annapolis was our favorite thing to do on our trip to Annapolis. You get to see everything in and around the city, so many important places that we didn't even know about. We learned so much, yet it was fun too. In our 60s, it is hard for us to walk far,... More

We had a great tour guide who was witty and informative. It was helpful to do the tour of Annapolis on the trolley first, so that we could see everywhere we would like to go and visit further.

My wife and I love to take these types of 1-2 hours tours whenever they are available. They are sooooo helpful in getting your bearing in a tourist town. We learned a lot of the history of Annapolis, some of the important structures, and interesting trivia such as why the roads are laid out in such a manner. Our tour... More

Whenever we visit a new city, we like to get a feel for the place by taking a trolley tour if it's available. The Annapolis Visitor Center had such a tour. The driver/tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable and he gave us some tips for what to see around the city. It's definiately worth the time and money.

I usually like trolley tours when I visit a city for the first time. But this trolley was overpriced, hot, and not very interesting. The man driving and narrating was a nice person, but his voice was high and squeaky, not the sort of sound you wanted to hear for an hour. I regretted that we spent $18 for the... More

We went on a Friday morning, the trolley was not full allowing many passengers their own seat and a cooler day so the AC felt cold at times. Not hot as previous reviews. Our driver was knowledgable and we definitely saw parts of the city we would not have, but at a pretty fast pace. So much to see. It... More

I enjoyed the emphasis on architecture, colonial history, and human historical stories. There's a lot to learn on this tour. Annapolis is familiar territory but I saw neighborhoods, museums, houses, etc that were all new to me. Worth every penny of the cost!

We took this trolley tour as we wanted our teenage son to learn some history and information about Annapolis and the Naval Academy since my dad went to the academy. It was a wonderful tour. The trolley operator was very knowledgeable. He was very friendly and went out of his way to answer our questions. It was well worth the... More
