  • I love history. I love stories. This place has it all. My tour guide was Steve K. He had so much to say I may have actually reached my information peak. I had questions he had all the answers. I did get a one on one tour. I went on a very slow day. I would recommend this tour while you are in town. When you go tell Penny I said, Hi. I’m absolutely sure she still lives there.
  • The tour was excellent. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and kept the conversation on a casual, comfortable level. She informed us of the Carlyle family as well as the history of the building and its role in the growth of Alexandria. I highly recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in historic homes or the history of Alexandria. Well worth an hour of your time and in super easy walking distance of the King Street and waterfront area.
