Free Annapolis Walking Tour

Free Annapolis Walking Tour is a specialty tour by reservation only, led by local celebrity, Steve Carr, a retired political and environmental consultant, author, and travel writer who gives an incredible performance as he tells stories about his historic Colonial hometown.

Learn the remarkable story of how America’s first capital has evolved from a sleepy fishing village on the shores of the majestic Chesapeake Bay into Maryland’s state capital and America’s sailing capital.

Discover the real Annapolis as you learn about its racial diversity, environmental issues, political games, cultural clashes, and the fun events that all go into making the Land of Pleasant Living.

And as an added bonus, Steve will tell you about the best places to eat, shop, play, so you can have some fun during the rest of your visit to Annapolis.

FREE! Annapolis Walking Tour was a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner in 2019.

What visitors think about Free Annapolis Walking Tour?

Federico E Cura
No better way to visit Annapolis (historic distric) than from the perspective of someone who knows it well, knows the locals, and who lives there. Steve knows the businesses there and has intimate knowledge of the people and the history. He has the ability to make otherwise dry material come alive in a fascinating way. Great tips on restaurants too!

This tour was wonderful and Steve has a wealth of information about the city and its history, politics and inner workings. I have been to Annapolis several times, but some of the sights we visited on this tour I have never seen before and, overall, it was a very pleasant and educational experience. It is not your typical free tour on foot, for sure!

We came down to Annapolis for a long weekend and lucky we saw Steve’s tour. We had a great time learned the backstory of Annapolis from a well-rounded native. His tour is a must do, after the tour he points you in the direction of many other things to do and great places to eat.
