Take a Private Tour to Baltimore and Experience a Whole Lot More
Take a Private Tour to Baltimore and Experience a whole lot more in this major city in Maryland.
Baltimore has had a very long history as an important Seaport and was once one of the most important port towns in the United States. Nowadays it is just a very lovely place to visit and sail away the hours.
Baltimore has many nicknames like many cities in the United States of America, such as ‘a city of neighbourhoods’ because of its many different districts and many different cultures.
The nickname ‘Charm City’ in my opinion is the perfect one. To describe Baltimore, you would say it was charming and welcoming.
As someone stated before Baltimore is like the ugly duckling that transforms into a beautiful Swan. Once a gritty, nautical and angry city it has now become beautiful through its architecture, world-class museums, great restaurants and trendy shopping malls and streets.
It really is a very welcoming city with friendly people that will go out of their way for anyone who needs it.

Baltimore is not an overpriced city, but it is not any cheaper either. How much you spend on a break in Baltimore will all depend on what you like and want to spend. For instance, you can stay in a good clean hotel for $70 a night but if you would like a little more luxury you can find hotels for $450 a night. The same applies for eating out too but honestly check around because there are cheap restaurants with great food better than the expensive ones
Crime is not prominent in Baltimore but always be safe and know your bearings. Get to know the area you are staying in and do not walk down strange alleys alone at night. When it comes to tipping people in restaurants or wherever, it is expected but not a law. Never feel you have to tip if the service was dreadful, they will ever learn then. Be sure if you are getting taxis the meter is switched on only when you stat to move.
