Only 45 minutes from our nation’s capital is one of America’s most historic cities, the Maryland State Capital of Annapolis. The home of the United States Naval Academy and a central point of the American Revolution.
Once called the “Athens of America”, Annapolis was settled in 1649 by Puritan exiles from Virginia. The community had a series of names, including Providence and Anne Arundel Town, until finally named Annapolis in 1694 in honor of Princess Anne of England.
Annapolis’s fantastic location along the world-famous Chesapeake Bay has been enabled it to be a prime location for fishing and boating. While you are here, enjoy some tasty Maryland crab for lunch at one of the amazing dockside restaurants!
After learning the colonial history of the area via a walking tour, we go into the Navy Academy for an exclusive tour behind the scene with trained Military tour guides!
This private tour also includes a stop in Maryland to visit Baltimore. Often dubbed ‘charm city,’ Baltimore is a short 60-minute drive from Washington DC.
You’ll be collected from your Washington DC location in one of our luxury tour vehicles, and after a short scenic drive through Maryland, we’ll arrive at our destination. Check out the grave of legendary writer Edgar Allen Poe and the former home of baseball icon Babe Ruth!. Next up, your expert guide will give you an informative tour of the cultural Inner Harbour, complete with entrance to the USS Constellation Ship and Fort McHenry, where Francis Scott Key wrote ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’.
The afternoon is spent exploring nearby Annapolis, a charming state capital with a rich colonial history. Enjoy eye-catching architecture downtown before taking a historic Annapolis walking tour of the United States Naval Academy. Don’t forget to grab some of the region’s renowned seafood in a harbourside restaurant before the journey home!
Our luxury tour buses provide a comfortable and climate-controlled environment for an enjoyable touring experience, while also offering protection from the elements. We cater to various group sizes with a diverse fleet of vehicles, from SUVs to premium motor-coaches, ensuring that our private tours can be customized for couples or large groups alike. To maintain a more intimate atmosphere on our public tours, we intentionally limit the capacity of our tour buses to keep the average group size small.
We do our best to keep large, same-party groups together on the same bus, but please remember that the seating is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Once you claim your seats – they’re reserved only for you for the duration of the tour.
Unfortunately, our shuttles are not wheelchair accessible, nor is there storage for baby strollers. If you have a wheelchair, please call us to make special vehicle arrangements for your tour. Some of our tours involve longer walks so if you like, you may stay on board the shuttle, near the landmark, without exiting the shuttle bus every time.
