Your personal guide to Charlottesville, Virginia
I join you in your vehicle in Charlottesville. You could be an Elderhostel tour in a motor coach or a couple in your car. Either way I tell you stories about the people and events that make this place a fascinating town. So many of the fundamental ideas of a free society have roots here.
Insurance issues and state regulatory requirements regarding for-hire vehicles. Maybe the future will be different.
Not really. There were no real battles to speak of in Charlottesville during the Civil War. The only exceptions were a skirmish just north of town with General Custer and a three-day occupation a year later where no fighting took place. Charlottesville spent most of the war giving medical care to wounded soldiers. If youre a real Civil War buff and would like a step-on guide in your car who specializes in the Civil War then call Frank Walker of Tourguide, Ltd (540) 672-9414. He is in Orange County just northeast of Charlottesville
Yes and no. Tell Me About It Tours can hire as many motor coaches and step-on guides as necessary (depending on availability). The real limits, if any, come from those imposed by your destinations. Wineries, for example, each have a maximum number they can accommodate in their tasting rooms.
It depends on availability. You might get same day service. Someone may have cancelled. Or a given date might be booked months in advance. Best thing to do is call as soon as you start thinking about it. Well take it from there.
No. My experience is that people treat me and my time respectfully and I respect theirs. A deposit is not necessary.
Phone Calls: Feel free to call me between 8 AM and 10 PM. I may be with a tour and not able to answer the phone. If so, leave a message and I should be able to get back to you within a day.
Tours: Generally, tours occur between the hours of 9 AM and 6 PM, seven days a week, federal holidays excepted. Sometimes I can be flexible. Other times there will be events which limit my hours further. Its always case-by-case. So give a call.
No. I do not require a contract for the same reason I do not require a deposit. If you would like a contract, I will happily send you one.
