Picture a Friday eve in October, the night of the full (harvest) moon and rallying your friends for a guided ghost walking tour of Alexandria. Well, we only stopped at three places and the tour was light and spotty on ghost stories, way too heavy...More

We took the tour hoping for history about the area and ghosts stories. It was very light on the ghost stories and the history given really didn't give enough background about the area. The guide was costumed and spoke in a Scotiah/Irish accent and seemed...More

Ben, our tour guide did a great job leading us on a 2 hour architectural tour of Old Town. Our guide went out of his way to customize the tour to our interests. Loved it! Highly recommended.

We have always wanted to try a "ghost tour" but never found the right time. My wife and I were in Alexandria for the night and saw a brochure in the visitor center and decided to try it. It was $10 for adults and $5...More
