Our Tours

1 - Is there anything special I need to bring?

Be sure to bring your love of history. Engaged, inquisitive passengers help create the best customer experience. Ask questions (no question is silly) and feel free to share your knowledge with others.

2 - Will my cell-phone work where we are going?

Most motorcoach companies provide onboard WIFI to their customers. Be sure to ask that this service is provided when booking your tour bus. While touring some locations, however—particularly on Maryland’s Eastern Shore—you may find it difficult to get a cell signal, so expect some communication to be interrupted. Be sure to bring a charger with you on the bus to keep powered up at all times.

3 - I have physical access concerns. Will I be able to access the sites on your tour by wheelchair, walker or cane?

Many of the sites we visit are handicapped accessible and ADA compliant. When a site is not accessible all efforts are made to deliver the passenger and close to the experience as possible. Please contact our booking agent to discuss available options.

4 - Will there be bathroom breaks on the tour?

Yes! There will be bathroom breaks. Most groups, arriving in their own rented bus, will have a bathroom aboard the vehicle. Most motorcoach companies provide bathrooms for ease and use of their customers. While many of the sites we visit will have bathrooms for your use, other groups may be touring these sites as well. It is not uncommon while visiting a popular tourist destination that you may have to wait in line while other groups and customers make use of these facilities. it is highly recommended that passengers avail themselves of the bathrooms on their private bus whenever possible.

5 - How rigorous are your tours? Is there a lot of walking involved?

Our pre-formed group's tours are mainly operated by bus with several stops at which passengers disembark and walk through sites such as parks and museums. Most sites have some type of seating for those who are limited in movement. Our walking tours require passengers to stand/walk for periods of time from one to two hours. Places to briefly stop and sit down are available on all our walking tours. Look for the symbol, next to each tour description, for the level of physical intensity. If you have additional concerns about mobility please contact our booking agent to discuss options. 

6 - What age ranges are appropriate to participate in one of your tours?

While most of our tours are designed for adults, passengers as young 10 will get great value from our experiences. When including meals as part of your booking special children’s options are available. Tours designed especially for youth and school groups are available.

7 - How long are the tours?

Trips vary in length from 3 to 6 hours depending on the tour. While some tours operate on a set time schedule, others can be tailored to the needs of your group and its time requirements.

8 - What is a "Step-on Tour Guide?"

A Step-On guide is an experienced tour guide who literally steps onto your bus when it arrives. The guide provides the onboard narration, navigates the journey and makes sure you will get in and out of each site in a timely manner. The Step-On guide does not drive the bus or make the behind the scenes arrangements for your tour. Like any other service provider, such as a waiter in a restaurant, you can show you appreciation for their work by offering them a gratuity at the end of your trip.

9 - Where do your tours operate from?

Our tours are conducted across the Chesapeake region which includes the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Baltimore, Annapolis and the Washington DC metro area. Tour groups can choose from a single day experience or extend their trip for multiple days and locations.

10 - How do I sign up for one of your tours?

You can sign up for one of our pre-designed tours through our website booking system, or you can speak directly with our booking agent who can answer your questions and tailor a tour specifically for you.

11 - What type of tours do you offer?

We offer tours, workshops and immersion experiences for groups, individuals and youth who are arriving with their own bus transportation, as well as walking tours for those arriving by car.  All of our offerings are history and heritage-based experiences and include visits to historical and cultural sites as well as shopping, gaming and culinary options.
