About
Join Baltimore Wicked History Tours to plumb the depths of Baltimore's underbelly. While we stroll through town, you'll hear about times past when some struggled to survive and others thumbed their noses at authority. From speakeasies to underhanded villains to celebrated personalities who passed through these streets. This is a history lesson like no other. Some might call it wicked.

We did the wicked history walking tour, it lasted about 3 hours. Our guide, cliff was very knowledgeable and told us some interesting historical information at 3 different locations. We really had fun but would have liked to see more of town. Overall, great value and great guide.

We had a small group, so the dynamics were friendly and very much to my liking. Our historian and guide for the evening, Cliff, was knowledgeable, solicitous, kind and a character! If there were historical tours related to other aspects of local history, I'd sign up for them as well. Many thanks for a memorable evening!

Came across this adventure accidentally and couldn't have been happier. The description was great. The cost was extremely affordable. And the tour exceeded our expectations beyound anything we had imagined. Cliff is a GREAT tour guide, extremely knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about his job. Would do this again when back in Baltimore. Highly Recommended!!!

Just in Baltimore for a Football game and decided on this tour for the Saturday night. It was fun and got a brief history of Fell's point. The bars were very interesting but the price for drinks in some bars were quite high. Overall was a great night!

We like to get some history in when traveling, especially on the east coast, so the Wicked History Pub Tour seemed right up our alley, and I had my fingers crossed that we’d get the bearded maestro I saw in reviews on TripAdvisor, and indeed, when we arrived at the meeting point, red-vested, twinkly-eyed Cliff was making his way towards us.

He regaled us with fabulous stories at Bertha’s, One-Eyed Mike’s, Mezze, and finally, The Horse You Came in on. Aside from fun facts and sordid tales, we learned from this tour around Fells Point that Baltimore is definitely a drinking town with each establishment having their own gimmick whether it’s a bumper sticker or a club or infusions. Cliff’s definitely an entertainer/storyteller, so it helps if you let yourself get into it instead of being snarky about it. He’s a well-known character around town. The bartenders seemed to know and love him, he’d made friends earlier in the night with a young man and his date who bought him a pipette of the oldest Grand Marnier in the world, and even our guide the next day had been inspired by Cliff.

We wound up being “the last ones at the party” having a couple more drinks with Cliff (ask about the tequila bar) and even stopping for late night takeout at a food truck with him before making our way home. He’s a delight, a legend, and charming enough to have probably been a good criminal back in the days that he’ll tell you about (but you’d have a good time getting swindled). So take the tour, let yourself be taken in/away, and tip him well so he can get the other hip replaced. ;)

Cliff was awesome! We were nervous the tour was going to be basic and boring at first, but Cliff was very engaging and had really great stories! We learned alot and are from the city. Do this tour and make sure you get Cliff!

It was a great opportunity to do something different for a birthday celebration. Enjoyed by all from age 21 to 55. The tour guide was both knowledgeable and fun, and the bars were already eclectic, but even more interesting after hearing the the associated tales! Highly recommend.

Cliff was knowledgeable and entertaining!! Very interesting stuff! If you're lucky, you'll get to hang out with him after the tour is over. He's a wealth of knowledge!

Wicked History Tours is great! First, I made our reservation for Saturday on accident and emailed to ask if I could make a change. They responded first thing in the morning and rebooked us without question. Then, when we arrived at our meeting place, the guide was already there (15 minutes early) and he was very pleasant and funny. Everyone in our group loved Cliff and think that he was great.

We visited four different pubs with Cliff telling us stories on the way to the pub, outside of the pub and of course, inside the pubs. The stories were wickedly fun and we had a great time.

We recommend you taking this tour and we will certainly take the Ghost Tour the next time that we are in Baltimore too!
