Highlight of my visit to see my adult daughter who recently moved to Richmond, Virginia!! The docent’s passion for the history of the cemetery was inspiring. We went on Saturday, October 19th at 10:00 am and it was perfect! Part of my daughter’s reason for moving to Richmond was because of ancestral ties to the city. Both her paternal grandparents are buried in the Hollywood Cemetery. If you are ever able to do the centenary tour, I highly recommend it and the fees for the tour support the efforts to keep history alive.

My husband and I enjoyed the Walking Tour of Richmond. As it was our first trip and we knew very little about the City, it was a nice introduction to its history. Two hours doesn't allow for much in depth discussion but it certainly gave us the highlights. We enjoy the benefits of walking which allow you to get much closer to the sights.

As an avid fan of history tours, this one in particular stood out to me with its welcoming introduction to the city and it's rich and varied stories. The tour is provided through and ends at the Valentine Museum whose collections focus on local history and events. Along the tour you are in introduced to both lesser known and iconic names such as Bolling Haxall and Maggie L Walker. The tour leads through lively urban areas and the peaceful capitol grounds, showcasing the environmental diversity of Richmond. I highly suggest this tour for tourists and locals alike!
