This was a wonderful way to entertain guests on a post-Thanksgiving afternoon. Ashley was a pleasant and knowledgeable tour guide. Being outside in a small group (masked) made us feel quite safe in spite of the raging panedmic. Alexandria is a beautiful town with a long and interesting history. I'd do it again and recommend the experience to friends.

We had arranged a private tour and had Kieran as our guide. He made everywhere come to life. We learnt so much. No question was too hard. E mails sent prior in organising the tour were dealt with promptly and efficiently. Highly recommend them.

I am a local and scheduled a tour for my family while they were visiting Virginia. Ashley was a great tour guide - the tour was informative, interesting, and covered a lot of Old Town. We learned about the history of the city and saw homes and businesses of colonial residents. I would highly recommend this tour!

Ashley is a terrific travel guide - well informed & enthusiastic. Our entire group of 16 people thought she was great. We scheduled a private tour with Discover Alexandria and it was a highlight of our reunion weekend.

We probably learned more about 1700-1800's America in one hour with Ashley than any other tour or museum visit during our ten days in Washington. The tour was well paced, informative and mixed historical with the current day. Ashley is a knowledgeable and eloquent professional historian but keeps details accessible for the layman. The tour is to be thoroughly recommended, you come away with a much more vivid picture of Alexandria past and present.

We went on both the ghost tour and regular tour. There was some over lap but both tours were very informative. Ashley was a great guide. With a soon to have PHD in history she has a passion for history. I would advise you checking this tour out.

Our group had a great time yesterday on our Colonial/Revolutionary tour. Kieran was an excellent guide.

I thought the points of interest were relevant, and fun. The length of the tour was just right.

I would love to go on more adventures with this tour company.

The tour was hands down the best ghost tour I’ve ever been on!!! I’m new to the area and the ghost tour was recommended to me by a friend. The tour guide took us around old town where she masterfully blended historical facts with lore. Very knowledgeable on the area but more importantly instinctively caught me before I gracefully ate the pavement. In all seriousness a must in Alexandria, it’s woman-veteran owned company. Had a blast!!!! #discoveralexandria #Ghosttour

We had a great walking tour led by Ashley. We enjoyed the PBS show "Mercy Street" and wanted to visit some of the actual sites that formed the settings for the show. Ashley provided a comprehensive description of sites as well as background information about the show.
She also conducts other themed walking tours in Old Town Alexandria - we will be sure to take some in the future.
