Labor Day is just around the corner and we’re starting to receive walking tour inquiries. Over the long weekend we’re giving three different tours: Historical Pub Crawl, Discover Alexandria, and Ghosts of Alexandria.
The Historical Pub Crawl stops at 3 different Alexandria pubs. As you walk from pub to pub you’ll learn about some of Old Town’s famous sites like the Carlyle House and Gadsby’s Tavern. This is our longest tour; it lasts just over 90 minutes.
The Discover Alexandria tour is our most popular tour because it covers just over a mile of famous historical sites in town. Two of American history’s most popular figures- George Washington and Robert E Lee are featured on this tour. It’s great for children and dogs too!
Our latest addition is the Ghosts of Alexandria tour. We can’t tell you any of the tour secrets ahead of time, but just know that our guides get more and more spooked each time they give the tour. You never know what you might see.
All of our tours begin at the Alexandria Visitor’s Center on King St. You can purchase tickets there using a credit card or pay your tour guide in person. Tickets at $12.00 for adults, $10.00 for veterans and senior citizens, $5.00 for children (children 5 and under are free).
