The guide told very little kontext. That means, you have to be an expert in The Wire to understand, what you were looking at

Great tour, the tourguide knows what he is doing and knows any backalley. He is also happily catering to your interests. Besides all kind of Wire lore he also points out important markers of Baltimore history.

This is a fabulous tour. I teach "The Wire" on the university level and have even written scholarship on it, and I learned A LOT from this tour! The Guide is smart, knowledgeable, and incredibly generous with his time. He knows a huge amount about behind the scenes aspects of the Show, and the people upon whom the Show is based. I also found out many eye-opening things about Baltimore that were complete news to me! TAKE THE TOUR! It's worth every cent!
