60 Minute Historic Annapolis Tour
WHERE DO YOU GO? WHAT DO YOU SEE?
Our 60 minute tours start and end at the Annapolis Visitor's Center, located at 26 West St.
There are about 1300 buildings in Annapolis at least a century old, representing 15 different architectural styles. This tour focuses on the largest and the oldest of those 1300 buildings, with special attention on the Georgian style --harmonious and balanced--named for the Kings George who ruled Britain much of the 18th century. Annapolis has the highest concentration of Georgian buildings in America.
Bring your camera for the one stop at the Severn River Overlook for sweeping views of the Naval Academy and Maryland's World War II Memorial.
The fare for adults is $18; Active Military and young adults aged 11-15 are $9, children 10 and under are $3. Preschoolers are free.
If you live in Anne Arundel County, and if paying customers have not filled the trolley, the tour is free! Please present a drivers license showing county residency. Your guests also receive a dollar off the regular fares.
