Our family, including a 19 and 21 year old, took the tour last week with our guide, Carolyn. She was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We couldn't have had a better time. This is a great way to learn about Annapolis and try out some restaurants so that your can return for a full meal later. We already have a few on our list for a return visit. Highly recommend.

Excellent Annapolis Tour

Nora provided a wonderful tour of the highlights of Annapolis and introduced us to fantastic food around the city. The tour was a great mix of landmarks, historical stories, current cultural insights, and a tasty variety of things to eat! Every person in my family tried some food they wouldn't normally eat, just because it was clearly a thought out choice by Nora and worth the taste! We were not disappointed!

Disappointing

I am originally from Maryland, so I thought it would be fun to bring two South Carolina friends on this food tour.

Our guide was nice but the food was not at all what I expected, nor the tour. I could buy pizza, ravioli, ice cream, potatoe soup and a catfish taco pretty much anywhere. There was one oyster shooter and that was regional, and a very bad crab ball in the potatoe soup but I was expecting regional food....crab soup, steamed or soft shell crab, Utz potatoe chips, etc. there is plenty to eat on this tour so that was not the problem but you could easily have taken an Annapolis tour and then picked your own spots to graze. Also, this is not a tour I would do with more than 6 people total, children would not like or be happy on this tour and do not expect to be fed in historic taverns. This could have been a great way to see Annapolis. It was not. Save your money.

Perfect experience

Tour guide was wonderful and added in a lot of fun historic details we would never know and weve lived in Maryland forever. The restaurants were a nice variety and the food was fun, if not always what I would have ordered for myself. Proud that I did my first ever oyster shooter! ( probably my last, but it was still an experience)

Nice Tourist Activity

Our tour guide Carolyn was very friendly and knowledgeable. She took time on the tour to get to know each party within the tour group.

The website should really be updated. We only actually ate 2 things that were on the website's list. What to ammend: Housemade sangria, craft beers, high tea including caramel poundcake, and premium specialty coffee. Nothing was mentioned about the locale which our forefathers frequented (as mentioned on the website). Also, this listing leads one to believe that specialty drinks (sangria, beer) will be included, yet the only actual drink we were offered for our money was water. One shot of beer arrived with the oyster shooter and it was NOT a craft beer, just Natty Boh.

I enjoyed the tour. A current website is really key to honest salesmanship and satisfied customers.

we did not go to the places I expected, except Reynold's Tavern. I don't think a oyster shooter is a good choice there. My guess is many people don't want that. Something crab would be good. The other stops were excellent. There was only 2 on our tour, which the guide really tried to cancel. Bad news. If we can't cancel, why do you think you can?

Restaurant tour-not food tour
Sat, Apr 5, 14   1:00 PM joantancrede Unspecified 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
It was a history and restaurant tour-not a food tour. Guide explained history of Annapolis-but did not comment on the waterfront history or anything about the fishing industry or seafood.. Food was very good, but no details about what kind of food and why it was chosen to represent Annapolis. Too much personal family info

Our tour was fabulous both food-wise and with our tour guide, Carolyn, who was a wonderful historical resource and great fun! The restaurants selected were varied and prompt with service. The day was rainy and cold so each stop gave us a chance to warm up and dry off! The tastings were ample so my advice is: go hungry!
