  • This ultimate Baltimore tour is a combination of three of our most popular tours in Baltimore: Iconic Baltimore: Inner Harbor, History in the Making, and Fells Point Happy Hour!

    Your total day tour of Baltimore begins in the Mount Vernon neighborhood, at the George Washington Monument to be exact, where we get you up to speed with the history of this great port city and the changing architecture of the area.

    From here, we make our way down Charles Street, where your guide points out several buildings of interest — such as filming locations for some of TV’s most popular shows. Fun fact: Many shows that are supposed to be set in Washington, DC are actually filmed in Baltimore because of the similarities in their neighborhoods’ architecture.

    Soon we arrive at the Baltimore Basilica. Conditions permitting, your guide takes you inside the columned entrance to marvel at the domed ceilings, prayer chapels, and works of art.

    Our next destination is inside the Mount Vernon Marketplace. Inside this former-warehouse is one of the city’s most popular new hubs for artisanal food and drink. Your guide shows you to his or her favorite spot and orders up a bite for the group to enjoy.

    We then head back out to see a few more sights before making our way to a nearby coffeehouse with an international flare. Your guide happily suggests their favorite cookie to go along with your beverage of choice.

    After the Mount Vernon tour, we take a short break together before taking a light rail ride to the nearby starting location of the Inner Harbor part of the tour.

    We make our way to Camden Yards Sports Complex — at the feet of one of Baltimore’s most celebrated sons, Babe Ruth. Here, we talk Baltimore sports and fill you in on the city’s transportation history before setting out to see more famous sights of Baltimore! Your guide points out several locations of historical and architectural interest, including a railroad station, beautiful churches, and the Baltimore Convention Center.

    Then, we hop on the bus where your guide fills you in on his or her favorite recommendations for shopping, museums, and other interests and we continue on to taste one of Baltimore’s most famous dishes, crab, at a popular seafood joint that locals have voted the “Best Place to Get Crab.”

    Weather-permitting, you begin the on the water part of your all-day Baltimore tour next, onboard one of the Inner Harbor’s many ferries. Aboard the ferry, you have a unique perspective and a beautiful view of the harbor and its attractions — seeing modern day Baltimore while experiencing the same (albeit much shorter) journey that many early settlers experienced hundreds of years ago.

    After disembarking the ferry, we take a walk to a delightful artisan fudge store, to indulge our sweet tooth, passing the USS Constellation as we go.

    After a short rest we take another bus ride to join the final part of the tour, which begins in Broadway Square in the waterfront neighborhood of Fells Point. From here, you discover the cultural and ethnic history that has given Baltimore its diverse culinary offerings.

    We visit a small shop packed with history and get a chance to meet the owner.

    Next, we head to the Broadway Market, the oldest market building in Baltimore, where you taste another Eastern European import, the pierogi, while your guide tells you tales of some of the market’s more colorful characters.

    After exploring Broadway Market, we stop for something sweet at a local cafe. Still thirsty? Enjoy a beer as we take in the sunset on the deck, or inside the gorgeous bar of a nearby hotel.

    Once you finish your drink, we head to our final destination of the day: A historic saloon. Taste one of Baltimore’s lesser-known snacks and you have an opportunity to buy a beer at the very same location of Poe’s final drink.

    If you’re still hungry when your tour is over (unlikely!), your guide is happy to give you his or her recommendations for dinner or drinks in the area. Don’t forget to ask for tips on what else to see and do while you’re in the city too!
