Full description
Take a ton of American history, add a dash of East Coast charm, then mix in a few secrets, and you’ve got lovely Annapolis! One of the oldest cities in America, Annapolis is bursting with original colonial buildings and deep-rooted stories of the nation’s heritage. Your local guide will tell you the city’s history and show you its hidden gems, as you learn about the importance of this seaport town in the building of America.

Learn why the beloved Chesapeake Bay was so critical to America’s growth and why it needs to be preserved for the country’s future. Stop for a panoramic view of local waterways and get a sense of the area’s geography, and find out how this city helped to shape the country’s identity. Annapolis was a temporary capital of the United States before the capital was in Washington, DC, and the city is home to the United States Naval Academy, as well as four signers of the Declaration of Independence — their original homes are still standing today.

Discover why Annapolis’ beautiful harbor once wasn’t so pretty, even though it was impactful, and hear other lesser known stories of American history. Your mind will be swirling with tales!

The fun and unique all-electric vehicles will whisk you around town and in and out of streets and neighborhoods you’d never otherwise see. Each eCruiser can accommodate up to five guests so it’s like having your own private tour.
Includes
  • Private transportation on an all electric, 5 passenger eCruiser

Our guide was exceptional! He related to each of us as individuals, he really listened and made certain we got to see what was important to us. He certainly answered all of our questions and really knew his stuff. I have already recommended this tour to several people! Memories are made on this tour!!

Fantastic!

A perfect Annapolis August day! Mike was full of "old and new" history in almost every nook and cranny of Annapolis and Eastport! Mike even made the bumps in the roads (both brick and pavement) feel like we were back in the colonial days of buggy travels. This was a great way to see a little more "inside" Annapolis than walking and driving your own car.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND - A BARGAIN!

What a wonderful, relaxing way to have a history lesson which many visitors to Annapolis won't experience. You ride about in a small (5 passenger + driver) electric vehicle and have your own very knowledgeable guide. We were lucky to have John who is a font of information and obviously enjoys his job and the city of Annapolis. This little e-car can get in and out of the narrow neighborhood streets so you see and hear the history of out of the way places in addition to the ones on the usual walking tours. Take this tour early in your visit as it's a great overview of Annapolis.
