Looking for bit of adventure in Alexandria? There is nothing better than a Ghostly Tour through historical sites and dark graveyards

A Ghostly Tour in Alexandria

Mar 12, 2014

Do you and your friends enjoy getting spooked? For a ghostly fun time in Virginia, how about you grab a few of your daring friends, hop onto a charter bus and head over to Alexandria? Alexandria Colonial Tours offers original tours that are based on original ghost stories, folklore and tales. On top of a scary tour, you will also learn more about the history of the city and its colonial culture.

The most unique part about the ghostly tours are the fact that your tour guides will be in colonial costumes and holding 18th century lanterns, making the tour authentic and interesting.

Here are some of the tours offered by Alexandria Colonial Tours:

Ghost & Graveyard Tour

Led by an 18th century costumed guide only with a lantern light, rental bus visitors will walk through the streets of Old Town, a historic district in Alexandria. During this tour, you will hear the many ghost stories and unsolved mysteries tied to this district.

The public tours cost $13 for adults, $7 for children ages 7 to 17, and free for children ages 6 and under. However, this tour is more appropriate for children age 9 onwards.

Haunted Dine Around

Working together with DC Metro Food Tours, your Alexandria Colonial Tours will take you for a three and a half hour tour, where you dine around Old Town, led by a lantern-wielding costumed guide. As you stroll from one restaurant to another, you will be entertained by spooky stories from the Ghost & Graveyard Tour, and tales of ghostly hauntings throughout the city.

History of Alexandria Tour

There are many hidden places of history around Old Town in Alexandria. You may end up walking at the same places George Washington and Robert E. Lee walked along the brick-lined streets, passing by the same elegant Federal homes and cobblestone alleyways as they did.

This tour is only by appointment only for groups consisting of 15 persons or more. For 90 minutes, you will be led around the historic areas of Old Town by an entertaining guide, and covering between 8-10 blocks of buidings.
