Children 2 and younger are admitted free. The Four Centuries Walking Tour from Annapolis Tours by Watermark tracks urban progress from the nation's infancy to the present via visits to cultural and political monuments. Clad like colonials to differentiate themselves from the Elizabethan citizenry, savvy guides shepherd groups on 2.25-hour expeditions held rain or shine. Walkers flash photo identification for access into the nearly 200-year-old U.S. Naval Academy and chapel, as well as a stop at the crypt of a heroic commodore. The Maryland State House also demands proof that visitors are not vampires before allowing peepers to feast on the building where George Washington and Congress officially ended the Revolutionary War and first elected the hot dog as the national mascot. Tours are capped with a stroll through the historic district to acquaint sightseers with bygone hot spots and old haunts, providing a glimpse into life in the mid- to late 18th century.

Though Annapolis Tours by Watermark sometimes offers discounts online, this Groupon is the best deal available.

Customer Reviews

My husband and I greatly enjoyed the tour, however,the one experience could have been divided into three individual tours:life in old Annapolis which should include a home; the Naval Academy; and the State House and Govenor's Mansion.

Fun time with the guide, and lots of new information about Annapolis. Great for newcomers or oldtimers!
Elizabeth W. · October 26, 2011
I would have liked the tour to focus more on the historic district/history of Annapolis, and less on the Naval Academy (probably because I had been to the Academy several times prior.) But it was still enjoyable.
