This half-day tour is a mix of two of our most popular tours, Fells Point Happy Hour tour and the Iconic Baltimore Inner Harbor tour, and is guaranteed to give you a broad introduction to the best that the city has to offer.
Your tour begins at the Camden Yards Sports Complex — at the feet of one of Baltimore’s most famous sons, Babe Ruth. Here, we’ll talk Baltimore sports and fill you in on the city’s transportation history before setting out to see the iconic sights of Baltimore!
From the meeting point, we’ll begin to make our way towards the water. During your walk, your guide will point out several locations of historical and architectural interest, including a railroad station, beautiful churches and the Baltimore Convention Center. Your guide will then escort you onto the Charm City Circulator, a free bus service around the area that offers a speedier journey to our next destination.
Next up, we’ll taste one of Baltimore’s most famous dishes (crab!) at a popular seafood joint that locals have voted “Best Place to Get Crab” in the city.
After sampling Baltimore’s world-famous crab, we’ll set out on a short walk to the docks. Weather permitting, you’ll begin the over-water part of your tour, onboard one of the Inner Harbor’s many ferries which boast beautiful views of the Harbor and its attractions.
After your ferry ride, we’ll continue to make your way around the harbor — you’ll know when you’re getting close to our next stop as you’ll be able to smell the sweet deliciousness in the air! A sample of local fudge is just the thing to give you an energy burst for the second leg of your tour!
There will be a brief opportunity to rest before you’ll need to take a short bus ride to Broadway Square where the foodie portion of your tour begins.
We’ll make our way to the waterfront neighborhood of Fells Point, where you’ll discover the cultural and ethnic history that has given Baltimore its diverse culinary offerings.
Next, we’re off to the Broadway Market, the oldest market building in Baltimore. Here, you’ll taste another Eastern European import, the pierogi, while your guide tells you tales of some of the market’s more colorful characters.
From the Broadway Market, we’ll make our way towards a sweeter stop at a local cafe. If you like, your guide can also recommend a beverage for you to purchase and take with you as you continue your journey.
We’ll then head over to 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 brew, we’ll take you to you to your final destination, a historic saloon. Here we will taste one of Baltimore’s lesser-known (but popular with locals) snacks and you’ll 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 will be happy to give you his or her recommendations for dinner or drinks in the area and give you tips on what else there is to see and do.
