Private Iconic Baltimore
This unique, private walking tour takes you through area neighborhoods and will soon have you feeling like a local. Along with your local, knowledgeable and friendly English-speaking guide, you and your small group of no more than 12 guests will ride on city transportation and take a ferry through the harbor. Discover the local side of one of the most popular destinations in Baltimore, the Inner Harbor, and learn of fascinating tales about international sports legends plus take a ferry ride across the Harbor to taste a few of Baltimore's favorite foods. This private tour will give you a great introduction to what this lively city has to offer and to wrap it up, try your guide's favorite fudge at a local fudge shop.
Your private tour of Baltimore's iconic Inner Harbor begins at the Camden Yards Sports Complex, at the feet of one of Baltimore's most celebrated sons, Babe Ruth. Here, you can talk Baltimore sports and be filled in on the city's transportation history before setting out to see the famous sights of Baltimore.
From the meeting point you will make your 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.
While on the bus, you will have the chance to spot many popular destinations and your guide will fill you in on his or her favorite recommendations for shopping, museums and other interests. When you reach your stop, you and your guide will disembark and continue to taste one of Baltimore's most famous dishes, crab, at a popular seafood joint that locals have voted "Best Place to Get Crab."
After sampling Baltimore's world-famous crab in one of its many delicious forms, set out on a short walk to the docks. Weather permitting, begin the over-water part of your tour onboard one of the Inner Harbor's many ferries. Aboard the ferry you will have a unique perspective and a beautiful view of the harbor and its attractions, seeing modern-day Baltimore while experiencing the same (albeit much shorter) journey that many early settlers experienced hundreds of years ago.
Once you disembark your seafaring transportation, find your land legs for the final stroll of your tour. Continue to make your way around the harbor, now seeing iconic historic attractions, including the civil-war era ship, the USS Constellation.
You'll know when you're getting close to the tour's final stop as you will be able to smell the sweet deliciousness in the air! A tasty sample of local fudge is just the thing to finish up your tour of the Inner Harbor. Make sure to ask your guide for his or her favorite fudge flavors.
If you're still looking for more to see before dinner, your guide will be happy to give you his or her recommendations for other nearby sights and attractions before you part ways. This wonderful private tour in Baltimore covers so many of the must-do attractions while in the city, you will certainly make lasting memories of your time spent in this iconic place.
