We crossed paths with Squire Allen on Memorial Day weekend, as his group came by while we were admiring the Thurgood Marshall Memorial, about 30 minutes into a 2 hour tour. His banter was so interesting that we paid to join them as they were entering the State Capitol, and it was well worth it. Everything that you might want in a historical walking tour! Probably would have missed how much colonial/revolutionary history is contained in a fairly compact historical town. Don't miss it.

We parked at the Annapolis Visitors Center and discovered that we could tour the historic district of Annapolis and The Naval Academy with the same knowledgeable guide, departing right from the Visitors Center. Our excellent, friendly guide had a special interest in architecture, so he was a wealth of information and the 10:30am tour got us to the Academy in time to watch the noon formation. Our hats off to Watermark Tours for hiring great tour guides!

I took the walking tour with "Squire Don" on a beautiful September morning and really enjoyed myself while learning so much about Annapolis and American history. It was fun to walk along the old streets where our famous forefathers had been and learn about the historic buildings and events. "Squire Don" seemed to know everything and presented information in a pleasant way which made it interesting to learn so much. Even though I had taken the tour of the USNA the previous day with another guide, I learned some more interesting facts, saw different things, and had fun walking along the beautiful campus and seeing the noon presentation again with the midshipmen in different uniformsms. It was a glorious and informational morning on the guided tour on a picture-perfect day.

This tour was lovely! It covered much of Annapolis and we learned a lot. Annapolis is such a wonderful place - We've visited in the spring, summer and fall (...it's a bit chilly in the winter with the wind coming off the water) But the shops and sights are terrific and the people were all very friendly. We enjoyed our tour and would recomend it to others!
