Enjoy our Twisted History Tavern Tour, find out what your guides now lovingly refer to it as. You'll have to check it out yourself to find out why. From murder to mayhem, sex and scandal, Annapolis has seen more than its fair share. The Twisted History Pub Crawl is a 2-hour walking tour (approx. 1/2 mile) into some of the most historic and famous taverns in Annapolis. Come out drinking and touring with your learned Twisted Historian. Find out the how, who, where, why and which pub was once the most popular brothel in town. Also, learn which tavern one of our founding fathers was chased drunkenly out of.
You'll stay in each bar approximately 30 minutes. You will be given ample time to purchase your choice of beverage before the guide launches into their stories.
