Watermark believes the “Four Centuries Walking Tour of Annapolis” offers visitors the very best their company can offer. It connects attendees to the city’s colonial era and historic events that led to American independence. Fans of history will be entertained by 400 years worth of Annapolis stories on either the 2-hour 15-minute or 90-minute version of the tour.
Top Tour Guides
Watermark’s courteous, experienced, and well-trained guides have helped visitors discover and enjoy Annapolis for more than 30 years.
Dressed in colonial attire, a knowledgeable tour guide will accompany guests through Annapolis’ Historic District, where they will pass several 18th century mansions, some of which are National Historic Landmarks. The guide’s colorful narration will discuss their famous residents and remarkable architecture.
The tour will then proceed to the Maryland State House, where George Washington resigned as Commander in Chief after the Revolutionary War in 1783.
Two Tour Versions
Guests taking the 90-minute tour will finish their excursion at the entrance of the United States Naval Academy (USNA). Those taking the 2-hour 15 minute tour will continue and enter the beautiful campus, where future officers of the U.S. Navy and Marines are trained.
United States Naval Academy
Certified by the USNA, Watermark’s guides will lead their guests on an inspiring tour of the Naval Academy. The stops include the Naval Chapel, the Crypt of John Paul Jones, and Bancroft Hall. Depending on the weather and academy schedule, tour attendees will be able to watch the ceremonial midshipmen’s Noon Meal Formation.
