Wear walking shoes to the Four Centuries tour
Mar 26, 2015 by: Allan S from Hyattsville, Maryland
The tour guide met us in the lobby of the Visitor Center and began promptly on schedule. He was knowledgeable and gave "insider" information about Maryland in general and Annapolis in particular. There were about a dozen in the group, making it easy to ask questions as desired. The most memorable part for us was the Naval Academy portion of the tour, especially the noon meal formation. They try to get you to that, but it doesn't happen every day. The morning tour ends at the dock by several lunch places, but the Visitor Center is easy to find if that's where you parked. One park I could have skipped was the State House, as we couldn't enter the chambers because they were in session. There wasn't much of interest but at least it was warm inside.

We enjoyed the harbor cruise, although there wasn't much to see. But the captain was friendly and pointed out several things. Fun to see the Naval Academy from the water.
Fast and Fun! A great tour!!

I grew up around Annapolis but had never done this tour - the "Tricorns and Tennis Shoe" tour. Our tour guide - dressed in admittedly not quite accurate period clothing - was excellent. Mistress Laura took us all around the perimeter of the Naval Academy, onto St. John's College campus and to each of the 4 houses of the Maryland signers of the Declaration of Independence. I really learned a LOT! Be ready to MOVE - the tour guide will move you fast! Thanks so much for a wonderful afternoon and helping to celebrate Maryland Day!
Alice was amazing!

Alice, who is phenomenally well-read, did a fantastic job of telling us about the state capitol and the Naval Academy, and various Annapolis homes and institutions. Since it was in the 20s outside, we were her only two guests on the tour, so we got a wonderfully personalized experience. She was dressed in historic garb, which we found quite impressive since she was not dressed as warmly as we were. It was helpful that we got to go inside repeatedly.
Not Bad for $15

We took the 40 minute tour of the harbor. We had no reservations and purchased tickets about 20 minutes before the cruise where they fill up the boats. Judging from the length of the line, I was concerned that we would not make the cruise, but it turned out fine. The boat ride itself was relaxing with benches to sit on. There is an upper deck and lower deck. There was also some dogs on board. A nice introduction to the Annapolis harbor area.
