Alexandria Colonial Tours
Bring the whole family along for Alexandria’s Original Ghost & Graveyard Tour. Follow an 18th century costumed guide by lantern light through the charming streets of Alexandria’s historic district, Old Town. On this entertaining tour you’ll hear ghost stories, legends and folklore.
Our public tour is appropriate for ages nine and up. If you have younger children, or would prefer tour material appropriate for children of all ages, we offer private family tours for groups of 15 or more.
Join our Alexandria History tour. Walk in the footsteps of George Washington along our brick-lined streets, by elegant Federal homes and cobblestone alleyways. From Colonial times through the Civil War, Alexandria has been the scene of many “firsts” in American history.
Tours meet at the Visitor Center located at 221 King Street, only two blocks from the Potomac River. Please arrive 5-10 minutes in advance.
