We did the history tour at the University of Virginia which is free of charge. Our tour guide was very attentive to our group and provided great insight into the history past and present of the University. She was very pleasant and I apologize I can't remember her name. She is an 2nd year Economics major though.
We took the 10 am tour and were glad that we did. The 11 am tour had so many people that they had broken it up into 3 separate groups.
We parked at the garage on Emmett St which was $2.00/hour with the first hour being free. Plus if you purchase something at the university book store they will give you $2.00 off your purchase so our parking for the tour was actually free.
The campus is very large and as we walked our way from the parking to the rotunda to meet for the tour we found anyone that we asked for directions was very helpful.
Overall a very enjoyable visit to this campus.More
