I went on the Annapolis Food Tour with Nora as the tour guide and I have to say that it was a fantastic mix of history, food, and a bit of contemporary Annapolis culture. I dig history, so I was surprised at how much I learned on this tour that I was not even remotely aware of (for example, Boston wasn't the only city that had themselves a Tea Party preceding the Revolutionary War).
The food selections were fantastic. Off the top of my head, I know I ate: a flatbread with pear and honey, an oyster shooter, pumpkin ravioli, a catfish taco, cream of crab that had a lump meat crab ball, and locally made ice cream. I feel like I am forgetting something else somewhere in there, but it was a sizable amount of really, really, good food.
Aside from the food itself, the walking tour and the knowledge Nora shared also stood out. Nora imparted stories of Founding Fathers on benders, the rivalry between the Naval Academy and St. John's College, brothels converted into Inns, and ghosts. You got a little bit of everything and Nora was engaging and entertaining the entire time.
The amount of walking necessary on this tour might seem a bit daunting, but with all the food you eat and the various cool sites to see (and the corresponding stories you'll hear), you're going to be glad you did. Also, the stops are frequent, so even if you're not in the best shape of your life, you will get regular breaks.
Overall, this was a great way to spend an afternoon and I would recommend this food tour.
