My boyfriend and I went on this tour of Old Town not expecting much, but we were delivered an excellent storytelling experience, some creepy stories, and overall a fun lesson in some of Alexandria’s history. We had Leigh, who was the best of all the guides that evening — make sure you get her! She was funny, warm, and kept us engaged for the full hour. The group was small enough that she was easy to hear at each little stop, and we thoroughly enjoyed her and the group experience. Highly recommend for a cheap, easy and entertaining evening!
My friends and I went on this tour recently while visiting Old Town. I think our tour guide did an okay job. It was nice to hear more history about Alexandria, but I wasn’t overly impressed with the story tellers ability to emphasize “ghoustly” or “scary” in this tour. It’s an interesting thing to do, but don’t expect too much.
