What makes this tour special

Enjoy a walking tour of Alexandria with a private guide, where you will uncover the city through the stories of notable American figures. On your private tour, you will:

On your private walking tour of Alexandria, you will hear the tales of one of America’s earliest cities, and one of its most important leading up to the Revolution. You’ll learn about America’s famous founding fathers, and their ties to the town—from Washington and Jefferson to Frenchman Lafayette and founding trustee John Carlyle. Explore the larger-than-life figure, Washington, by traversing the places which made Alexandria his home: visit the church where Washington was a member, walk by the home of his first love and the home of his physician. 

On your walking tour, you’ll see Gadsby’s Tavern, where you will hear of the letters written between other notable past presidents — Thomas Jefferson and John Adams — political opponents who went on to have an epic friendship, carried out largely through letters. You’ll see some of the country’s greatest Georgian architecture at the Fairfax home, and walk Captains Row, where the cobblestone roads date back to the early 1700s.

 Along your walk, learn how the city of Alexandria arose — from its landed gentry to its slave heritage who built much of the infrastructure that remains today. Visit the historic Alexandria waterfront, which is always bustling now with water taxis and private craft, and visit the Torpedo Factory Art Center to see the city’s vibrant art scene. 

At the end of your walking tour, you are free to continue exploring this gem of a town at your own leisure, grab a bite to eat or see the farmer's market and enjoy the town's waterfront.
