Excellent value and wonderful and intriguing stories of the town's past! Both options of the tour are amazing and give you a view of the historical significance of Ellicott City to the present.

I cant wait to return. This whole city amazed us...walking tours, railroad museum, and antique shops to die for! Be sure to drive around side streets if you are in auto after this tour and create your own tour.

The literary pub crawl is a close cousin to the haunted history tours of Ellicott City. Our hostess, dressed for the part, read passages from locals like Edgar Allan Poe, and H.L.Mencken as well as passers through like Daniel Boone. A great way to feel...More
