Are restrooms available on tour?
Restrooms are always available at the tour starting location, and again at select locations during the course of tours. We recommend using restrooms prior to touring for your own comfort while on tour and to prevent holding up the tour group or missing any part of the tour.
Will the tour be cancelled if it rains?
Tours are held rain or shine. If the weather is very inclement, e.g. heavy snow or hurricane, the tour may be cancelled. Rescheduling or refunds will be offered in the extremely rare event that the company cancels the tour.
Can photos be taken on tour?
Photos can be taken everywhere with the exception of the colonial kitchen in the Hammond-Harwood House, the Sands House, and in the Jonas Green House. This restriction is requested by the historic homes involved.
Are tours wheelchair and stroller friendly?
Yes, this is true for most tours. The exceptions would be The Sands House, The Grand Houses, and the Green Family Print Shop Tours. These tours cannot accommodate wheelchairs, and strollers must be left outside. On our other tours, the State House can be entered from the lower level where there is use of an elevator to go to main floor. The colonial kitchen involves 3 stairs which present no problem for strollers. Wheelchair participants usually find they can see and hear amply from the doorway of the colonial kitchen.
Why don't your public tours include the U.S. Naval Academy?
Touring the United States Naval Academy (USNA) takes nearly an hour and detours from our primary objective of presenting the major venues of historic Annapolis. Most of our tour guides are certified to conduct USNA tours, and if requested on a private tour we can make arrangements for this. Guides at USNA visitor's center do an extraordinary job giving public tours of the academy and feel that we do historic Annapolis best and they do the Naval Academy best. For details about about these tours, please visit www.usna.edu/visit.
Why are picture I.D.'s Required?
Pictures I.D.'s are required to go into the Maryland State House and the United States Naval Academy. Be prepared to go through a security checkpoint similar to that of an airport. Several of our tours go into these locations.
