Learn About American History With Alexandria Colonial Tours

You know Old Town Alexandria is a historical city, but do you really appreciate the significance of this local landmark? Alexandria Colonial Tours has the informative (but still fun!) guided excursions to teach you more about Old Town and its past. 

Choose from a public, group, or private tour to explore Alexandria’s many firsts in American history. There’s also a specialized tour that explores African American heritage in the town. For the kids, there are walking tours for schools and clubs, or the not-too-spooky ghost tour that meanders through the streets by the lantern light of a costumed guide. You can even hire company president Wellington Watts to come to you for an entertaining presentation on colonial history, language origins, and more. Mr. Watts even touches on flirting in colonial times and will tell a few ghost stories dressed in his finest Civil War-era garb. Purchase tickets for a tour online, over the phone, or at the visitors center on King Street.
