And, which pub was once the most popular brothel in town and which tavern of our founding fathers was chased drunkenly out of!

Me and my boyfriend went on the walking ghost tour. We went to several different sights and all the stories were really interesting. My boyfriend snapped a picture of one of the haunted houses (brice house) and guess what was in the picture? A ghost!!! im not kidding, i didnt really believe in this stuff until the pic. There was nothing in the pictures i snapped but there was a figure in 3 of the pictures my bf took. No body else got anything in the pictures so it was really weird. Our tour guide was really nice and informative, i think her name was Melissa but im not sure. Anyways, make this a must to do on your list cause it was the best part of my trip ( even more than the naval academy tour lol).

Met our guide outside the Maryland Inn and she immediately took us into the lobby where it was warm and where the ghost stories began. That was a bit confusing for late arrivals who didn't know where we were. We wore glow-in-the-dark bracelets for safety and followed our tour guide, Julie, around town and listened to several interesting stories. Also got to see original foundations over which are modern buildings. Worth the hour and a half walk - though you start and finish at different places - parking at the visitor's center was a convenient walk to the Inn and where we finished.

Julia was really entertaining, and we had a blast. The stories were eerie and many of them funny. Despite the cold, we all had a great time. Definitely recommend this tour!

I have lived in Annapolis my entire life. I learned a lot about Annapolis history that I didn't know before. Definately take you places the ordinary tours don't. The Pub Crawl was exceptional as well. Nothing goes better with ghost stories than a few cold ones.

First of all there are 2 competing companies offering ghost tours in Annapolis, this is the tours booked via www.ghostsofannapolis.com web site. They frequently offer discounts from various daily deal sites. There are different themed tours, we did the Haunted Pub Crawl.
Second - the particular guide has a huge impact on the success and value of the tour due to their personality and knowledge. Friends have done this tour with other guides and their relayed experiences were variable. There are a couple good guides and a couple okay guides it appears.

We lucked out - out guide was Julia, who has recently coathored a book about Annapolis ghosts. She was a great storyteller and kept the evening interesting as we went from pub to pub and heard stories about the history and hauntings of each establishment as well as the areas we walked through or near (eg Academy grounds were not open to us and the statehouse was closed at night).
She also appeared on good terms with the staff at the establishments we visited.

Would definately recommned this to friends and family.
