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.

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.

We went here as a recommendation from a friend, and it didn't disappoint. Fun for all ages (we were a bunch of 20-somethings), they dress in colonial garb and take you around this city by lantern. The stories are very interesting, and it's fun to...More

I highly recommend the Ghost & Graveyard Tour, especially if you can manage to get Jimmy as your tour guide. He's fantastic at his job and really made the experience what it was. Super knowledgeable, great sense of humor, and doesn't just "phone it in"...More

It would be better named History and Legends tour. There isn't anything scary about the tour or the stories, although a small cemetery at night can be unsettling. Aside from the Carlyle House, the stories were more myth and legend than anything historically accurate. That...More

Jimmy gave us the best tour- he didn’t quicken the experience even though we were getting soaked with wind and rain. It was insightful, fun, and well deserved worth the trip! We took the south tour and will be back for the north side soon!!

We were in Alexandria for the day and decided to do a ghost walk. We've been on similar tours in Gettysburg, Williamsburg and Salem, and this was by far the worst. My husband, 14-year-old son and I showed up early at our destination. There was...More

This tour started off as promising and the guide did explain that Alexandria didn't always like to own up to its haunted past because they thought it would take away from the "charm" of the town. Meh. It stated with a story about a philanderer...More
