So my entire trip to Alexandria was a bit last minute but saw the signs up for the evening ghost tours on my way to dinner and figured it would be fun, and it was! A good deal of local history and historical context is...More

Great way to see the city at night and get some history as well as some exercise. This is a 2 hour walking tour. There are various routes and many stops. Great for families too.

The tour was great!!! It had both ghost stories and a bit of history about the city of Alexandria. If you are visiting the Alexandria area, I would highly recommend this tour.

Too bad nobody showed up to give us our tour after we paid $60. Called to confirm the reservation, stood outside for 20 minutes and finally left. What a waste of one of only 3 nights visiting DC

I really enjoyed this. It was the first ghost tour I’ve ever done, but won’t be the last. Old Town Alexander is so quaint and awesome. Besides how great Jimmy was, the stories were fascinating and the ambiance of the town added to the mystique.

Not your average ghost tour! Jimmy is the best, very funny and if you joke around he jokes around with you. It was kind of rainy but he made light of it and we all ended up having a great time. Definitely recommend the tour...More

Jimmy was our guide and he did a great job. We had about 20 8th graders and a couple of adults. He was interesting, funny, and informative. We did the ghost tour and enjoyed it a bunch, we would recommend it.
