I love history and when I was there was told they were doing some renovations on some of the ships. So I didn't spend money on the tickets but gained a lot of knowledge from outside the ships on the plaques.

Lots of renovating being done on ships while we were there. Not real impressed but nice to see them in the harbor.

I toured 2 ships - the Constellation and the USCG Taney - amazing. I felt that I walked around in shock that I was exploring ships that survived 2 major wars. The USS Constellation had a cannon demonstration while I was there. There was a...More

My wife and I totally enjoyed touring the four ships that are part of the tour. Make sure you show your AAA card (if you have one) to get a nice discount off the normal four ship tour price. Take your time during each ship's...More

If a history buff, you'll love the Constellation! To think it is such a beautifully restored ship in our harbor, how much she has witnessed through all the years.

Baltimore is home to many historic ships. We are lucky to have in our harbor; USS Constellation, US Submarine Torsk, US Coast Guard Cutter Taney, and the Lightship 116 Chesapeake. Unlike a museum, when you purchase a ticket, you get the chance to go aboard...More

The ships range from 1854 to the Vietnam war. There are 3 ships and a sub. You get to see what life for the people who lived on the boats. It's a lot of walking between the four ships. There is also a round white...More

This is something that I may have rated higher, but we had already done one ship tour earlier in our vacation and as a result, this was more of the same. If choosing, I would do the Constellation and the Torsk (Submarine). Those were the...More

You see 4 different ships, 4 ships from 4 different times in history. An old clipper ship, an old submarine, a coast guard cutter that survived the Pearl Harbor attact. Very interesting, informative and educational. Too good to miss!

At least five ships. If you are a nautical buff, you go from wooden ships and iron meen, to steel and steam. All the ships have great docents. As a local bringing guests, I have done these tours five times in ten years and expect...More

If you can find a spot on the street it's meters and that's the cheapest. There is also a small parking lot directly across from harbor place and not attached to a hotel. It's still expensive but not as bad as the hotel... More

We spent the most time on the oldest ship also. We took our time and spent 3 hours on 3 ships, skipping the sub. We had a great time but if you take your time, you could spend all day there. Well worth it though. Enjoyed... More
