Our tour of Church Hill was awesome. Our guide, Michael, was knowledgeable, passionate, and entertaining. We learned a lot about the area and Richmond as a whole. Tour was about 2hrs and was mainly level ground. Highly recommend the Richmond Tour Guys!

The Richmond area has so many great neighborhoods and we enjoyed the walking tour of Church Hill with Michael. The walk was manageable with the guide steering us clear of some of the steeper hills. The architecture, both antebellum and post Civil War, is stunning...More

Ray did a great job on the tour despite the 96 degree heat! We learned a lot of Richmond history and enjoyed seeing the sights.
