“Annapolis "4 Centuries Walking Tour" big hit”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Last weekend I participated in Watermark's "4 Centuries" walking tour of Historic Annapolis and the Naval Academy. The tour was just over 2 hours and 15 minutes long and was fantastic. Richard, our tour guide (in period costume) was terrific and provided a nice mix of humor and history. I would highly recommend this tour. You'll need a photo ID to get into the Maryland State House and to get into the Naval Academy. Be sure to wear good shoes!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your tour. Great advice on bringing a photo ID and good shoes. Your tour guide, Squire Richard has led over 600 tours for Watermark. He was recently profiled in Annapolis' local paper.

“Great way to get on the water!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

I wanted to see Annapolis from the water and see why it is called the 'sailing capital of Maryland". This was a great tour of the harbor and the surrounding rivers only 40 minutes out and back. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the captain kept us all on our toes with his jokes! I only wished I had time to take a longer cruise. They offer hour-long tours and even day trips. Next time I visit I will on one of the longer specialty tours! It was a fun time for the whole family.

“Worth The Price”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

This was a terrific way to learn about Annapolis. The tour was informative, and pointed out all sorts of interesting tidbits I would not have known, such as the fact that Annapolis briefly served as our nation's capital. 40 minutes was just about the right amount of time, too, because much longer would have gotten rough in the cold March winds. They had a refreshment bar with drinks available on board, though it didn't look like anyone on our tour ordered anything. This is definitely a highly recommended attraction!

I contacted watermark tours spoke with Claudette McDonald for info. Received the brochure a few days later. Booked a trip for 57 people from our Adult Community in Jackson New Jersey.
Not only was the weather just great for October, 2012, but the service WaterMark provided was exceptional. Claudette McDonald handled handled all passes, guides and lunch preparations.
Guides met us at the designted arrival location and the group was directed to the Naval Academy for tour and lunch. After lunch a 45 minute boat ride was conducted around the Naval Academy. The personnel , guides and wait staff should be commended. The boat crew were exceptional, they held up departure for one of our disabled members and her husband . WaterMark you ARE NUMBER ONE C LAUDETTE YOU GET *****+
