Our tour guide, Michael, was well informed and gave us great insight into Richmond's past using the areas around the State Capitol. It was a bit cold on the day that we went but we all appreciated the experience and the history lessons. I would go back and do the other ones in the future. The walk is not strenuous with no hills. Perhaps being able to go into more buildings would have been helpful especially on a chilly day.

This tour is definitely a must do tour and was an amazing experience. The tour guide, I think his name is Mike, was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. He took us on an amazing tour of downtown Richmond, stopping and giving historical insight at all the historic buildings downtown. His knowledge of not only the buildings, but the personalities of historic Richmond was so refreshing. Considering this is a free tour, and tour guide works for tips, this is well worth the two hour investment. Leave a generous tip 😊

My husband and I just got home from a 2 hour walking tour of downtown Richmond by The Richmond Tour Guys. Matthew was our guide. He was excellent. Knowledgeable, nice loud voice, funny. The pace was moderate, but there weren't too many hills or steps. We have lived in the Richmond area for 17 years and we learned a lot. We are looking forward to doing the other tours that Richmond Tour Guys offer. Thanks, Matthew for a great tour.

I love a good walking tour...most of the time. This one was too long, and to clarify this, it was too long winded, not distance. It was supposed to be two hours long and was over 2 1/2. I had hoped for a nice overview of Richmond and it's history. Ray, our tour guide, covered a lot of history and just seemed to go on and on. Ray had a lot of knowledge and some good insight, but went on a little long or maybe it was presented to dryly...We stayed in a rather small area of Richmond, and passed many important sites, but we stood and listened a lot. By the time the tour finished at almost 2pm, I felt I had wasted a lot of time without going into any of the places I was interested in seeing.
