Gather bits and bobs of Frederick’s history & fun facts while viewing Frederick on a whole new level.

You will receive an interactive tour in which our Clippie (guide) will weave a story of local historic interest from 1745 to the present. Once you finish the tour, your ticket also includes a discount at Frederick Social for a refreshing bite.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT: You will be picked up in historic, downtown Frederick along our beautiful Carroll Creek area. You can’t miss our big 13′ high yellow double decker. Once you board and find your seat, all you need to do you is sit back, relax and leave the driving to us. We will cruise past over 10 points of interest in Frederick while listening to our amazing Clippie (guide) lead the way. Once we have completed our tour, you will be dropped off back at the same location craving something refreshing and tasty! Frederick Social is just a short jaunt away where you will show them your wristband so they know you’ve been on the bus!
