We had arranged a private tour and had Kieran as our guide. He made everywhere come to life. We learnt so much. No question was too hard. E mails sent prior in organising the tour were dealt with promptly and efficiently. Highly recommend them.

Ashley is a terrific travel guide - well informed & enthusiastic. Our entire group of 16 people thought she was great. We scheduled a private tour with Discover Alexandria and it was a highlight of our reunion weekend.
