What happens if I arrive late for the tour?
We must start the tour on time because our other guests do not want to wait. The pub crawl and other tours leave promptly on time, and no refunds will be issued to people who are late and miss the tour. Please give yourself plenty of time to get to the tour and find parking! We recommend that you check in with the tour guide at least 10 minutes before your tour departure. Please note, we do allow you to reschedule with 24 hours notice, so if you think you will be late, we recommend you reschedule in advance.

Does the tour happen rain or shine?
Yes, the tour runs in all weather, so please bring an umbrella.

Do we go inside buildings during the tour?
The Wicked History Pub Tours and the Wicked Brews Tour will enter into some local pubs and taverns. We don’t always go into the same pubs and taverns because of available space. The number of pubs and taverns depends on how much time we spend at each location, but we will typically visit 3-4.

The Wicked History Walking tour stops outside of the buildings to tell the stories.

Are restrooms available along the tour?
Yes, every venue we enter will have restrooms available for patrons. No restrooms are available for the Fells Point Wicked History Walking Tour as we do not go inside any buildings on this tour.

Where does the tour end?
The tour usually ends in the last pub visited, which will vary according to the tour guide. All of these pubs are within a one block radius of the tour starting point.

Is there parking near the tour?
There is a parking garage located at 803 S Caroline St, in Fells Point, Baltimore, MD, which is near the meeting location, and metered parking is also available, though hard to find. Street parking is really hard to find so we strongly encourage you to arrive early enough to park at the garage.

Is the tour wheelchair accessible?
If we know beforehand that someone in a wheelchair will be on the tour, we will make every effort to accommodate you. Please contact us at as some pubs in Fell’s Point are not wheelchair accessible.

Can I bring my dog with me on your tour?
The Wicked Pub Tours enter places that may serve food, so pets will not be allowed on the tour, except service animals. However, our All Ages Fells Point Wicked History Walking Tours do allow leashed dogs.

Do you offer group tours?
Absolutely! Private group tours are available for certain dates. Please see our group tour information page.
