Since Baltimore is a smaller city, most visitors like to travel around the city on their own schedule. One tour takes visitors throughout the city streets (and waterways!) to various attractions (Ride the Ducks of Baltimore), but most of Baltimore’s tours offer a specialized look at one part of the city. These are great if you want to learn more about Fell’s Point’s ghosts, the affect of the Civil War on Baltimore, or any other part of the city.

Since Baltimore is situated around the Chesapeake Bay, the most breathtaking tours available are on the water. The lady ships of Baltimore; the Bay Lady and Lady Baltimore, and the Prince Charming ship, offer tourists a one-hour narrated tour around the Inner Harbor four times daily from April through October. Special event cruises such as Thanksgiving, Breakfast with Santa, and a New Year’s Eve Extraganza are held throughout the year. The boats are also available for private charter for weddings or special events.

If you like sailing or have always wanted to spend a few hours on a sailboat, HarborSail offers chartered tours from historic Fell’s Point. You will see historic attractions such as Fort McHenry and Federal Hill.

Clipper City offers visitors a ride to see the historic sites of Baltimore. The Clipper City ship is a replica of one of the tall ships that carried lumber into and out of the Port of Baltimore from 1854 to 1892. The ship offers two-hour tours twice daily on most days to Fort McHenry and the bustling seaport.

Baltimore also has something for sports fans. The Baltimore Orioles baseball team plays its home games at Camden Yards. The one-time railroad center has now been converted to a state-of-the-art baseball stadium right in the heart of downtown Baltimore. Visitors are invited to tour the ballpark including the club level suites, the press levels, and the Orioles dugout.

Although Baltimore doesn’t offer many tours that provide travelers with an overview of the city, its specialized tours give visitors the opportunity to visit and learn more about certain parts of the city. Below is a list of tours that many visitors find enjoyable. Many more tour opportunities exist, so check with the visitor center, your hotel, or your travel agent to see what other areas of Baltimore offer a more detailed look at the unique offerings.
