Alexandria: Spirits of Old Town Walking Ghost Tour

1. Alexandria: Spirits of Old Town Walking Ghost Tour

Take a journey through historic Alexandria’s most spine-chilling haunted locations on this walking tour. Listen to tales of betrayal, murder, and magic as you wind through the shadowy streets of Old Town. Upgrade to an extended tour for even more ghost stories. Meet your guide at the meeting point, then set off on your ghostly walk, armed with a lantern. As you go, hear chilling, first-hand accounts of paranormal activity dating as far back as the 1800s. You might even capture your own evidence. Stand at the gates of the harrowing Carlyle House, where an ancient Scottish tradition has been warding off evil spirits for the last 100 years. Investigate a 19th-century murder in the Wilkes Tunnel, and gather clues about the mysterious dead stranger hanging around Gadsby’s Tavern. At the Schafer House, follow young lovers from their first meeting to their tragic deaths and beyond. Wander the same paths as George Washington, mingle with the ghosts of Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers, and gain insight into the darker side of American history. At the end of the tour, circle back to the meeting point with plenty of spooky tales to entertain friends and family.

What people are saying about Alexandria, Virginia

My sister and I went on the lunch cruise to celebrate our birthdays. It was wonderful. The food was delicious and our server Danylle was lovely. We danced for a while and then went outside to enjoy the scenery and beautiful day. It would recommend this lunch cruise.

Fun local activity to see the neighborhood in old town and learn some history. Tour guide was entertaining and friendly. We recommend to come early and use street parking or garage underneath. Lots of restaurants and shops.

Dwayne and Ki (I'm not sure how to spell her name ) they were amazing! very friendly and professional. They made the trip worth it. Dwayne's smile was great! every time we talked to him he was smiling.

The service staff was great. Entertaining and attentive. Our servers were DeWayne and Marteko. They were a lot of fun.

Food was fantastic, the view was great music was tastefully. No complaints
