Really enjoyed the storytelling and the hair on my arms stood up several times. Thought the tour was just the right length and learned a few things too.

Visited the old town of Alexandria and took the colonial ghost tour. It was a leisurely one hour walk around the old town, full of history and hauntings. A great way to spend the evening.
