Take an Old Town Alexandria Walking Tour and discover its extraordinary history with a resident historian and owner of DC Military Tours, Tom Schultz. I am a twenty-year resident of Old Town and I enjoy showing off my neighborhood. Steps from my own home, we will stroll around Old Town Alexandria, a colonial city rich in architecture. We may run into shopkeepers and neighbors whom I know personally. Receive inside knowledge on the local habits and the best tastes and bargains in Old Town. Start your private walking tour at the garden of the Alexandria Visitor’s Center at 221 King Street. This is a dog friendly tour so bring the pooch! Navigate the colonial streets of Old Town with discoveries at the Athenaeum, Captain’s Row, The Carlyle House, an actual Torpedo Factory, the Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary and Gadsby’s Tavern
