The coordination of this tour is crucial to it's success, and Capital City Colonials has obviously put a lot of planning on the timing and overall value. The food stops were great, the guide was very knowledgeable, and the individual microphones for ease in hearing made the day complete.

Best new tour in Annapolis

I have done Annapolis by boat, and on land for a history walk, but I went on this tour for the food, and was pleasantly suprised at the wealth of local historic knowledge that the guide filled us in on as we strolled leisurly through the historic district of Annapolis. Bolstered by wonderful earphones for each person on the tour, we wandered from taverns to ice cream makers through wine cellars to historic homes and kitchens and more. There were plenty of samplings to consider it lunch. Now I feel well equiped to go out on my own and find a great restaurant for dinner. This is the first year this tour has been offered, and I would say that Capital City Colonials has a real hit!

The idea of incorporating food stops into a city tour brought a fresh and unique twist. I found the colonial guide to be entertaining along with great anecdotal tales. At the conclusion of the tour I was well fed and "full up". The pop overs near the end of the tour were outstanding! One should not miss this tour.

Fun tour of Annapolis

Enjoyed the tour of Annapolis. Our tour guide was dressed and talked as if she walked out of a 18th Century home in the town. She made the trip very informative and did cute little things that made for a great tour. The food was fun too. Most I had had before but the pop-overs were to die for. I learned many exciting facts about the city I love. Thanks so much for a fun day!

Tour guides with a good sense of humor towards questions. Fun and fulfilling in that one is never without food or drink throughout the tour. If you like cool architecture and stories about the past and present, this is the right tour. They even gave us individual headsets so that they don't have to shout, we can listen to them at the volume we wish to hear them at, and there are so many cool things along the way one can lag behind for pictures and the like without missing the tour.

Excellent tour about town with delicious tastings

This was such a phenomenal way to spend an afternoon in the historic city of Annapolis. Our guide, Susan Denis was extremely versed in local historical interesting facts and added humor to her dialogue. We went to multiple and varied sites that she presented such unique facts on, that it was very surprising to me as I have been a local resident most of my life and taught school in this county for a quarter of a century ! At each stop we enjoyed some type of colonial snack or beverage-each more appetizing than the previous. The other tour participants were British and Scottish, and were most impressed with Susan's factual knowledge & enjoyable humorous comments. After each libation, she treated us to a colonial toast and the reason for it's use in historic Annapolis. The pace was leisurely and enjoyable on a lovely spring afternoon in our original capital city. Three cheers for Susan Denis and her portrayal, in her lovely colonial attire, of an 18th century lady. Her use of tiny speaker ear pieces was a great help while being in the city on a busy Sunday afternoon. I have recommended this to many people since taking it, and would gladly delight in taking it again !

A great tour!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the food and history walking tour. The food choices were all delicious, and the guide was quite knowledgeable. True history buffs might want to know that there is not an historical connection for all of the food choices and eating establishments. Yet all were great fun! I highly recommend this tour.

Highly Recommend!

Our guide, Susan, was terrific. She was very knowledgable and fun to be with. Susan is a very patient person, which one has to be on these types of tours. We were extraordinarily fortunate that it was just the two of us rather than a group! The number two most wonderful part of this tour was that she provided headphones so that my husband, who is hard of hearing, could hear everything she was saying. It also meant that we could look around and still hear! It was a wonderful addition to any tour! We have been to many cities as tourists, gone on may food tours, and have enjoyed them all. This was especially nice because it was in our own backyard! We definitely will return to Annapolis and frequent some of the places we visited during our tour with Susan. We highly recommend both Susan and the tour.

In spite of inclement weather, our guide was upbeat and knowledgeable about many historical periods, not just the Colonial period. We threw some odd questions his way and he answered them with good humor and an assurance borne of knowledge.

The food was wonderful, but it was the walk and the history that we really appreciated.

We would definately recommend this tour to anyone who loves food, walking or history . And who doesn't?

In fact we have already talked it up to friends in the Baltimore Area.

Thanks for a wonderful afternoon in Annapolis.
