What do you do in the winter? This is common question asked of Watermark employees and one of the biggest answers we give is annual tour guide training. Before our guides walk the streets in their period dress attire, they receive over 50 hours of training beginning with the founding of Maryland in the 1600’s to present day. Training sessions include information on the history of Annapolis and its contribution to the founding of our country, how our state government works, architecture, African-American history, St. John’s College, and historic homes in Annapolis and their significance. All guides are also certified by the United States Naval Academy. Our guides are re-certified annually; we take pride in knowing that we have the best trained guides who provide our visitors with an opportunity to learn and to laugh.
This is all just a taste of what happens in tour guide training...and in the Winter months at Watermark! Learn more about our tour guides and how to become a guide yourself.
