Stowe Historical Walking Tours




Thursday’s and Saturdays June – Columbus Day 11am and 2pm




Join us for a 2 hour walking tour through the history and charm of Historic Stowe Village. We’ll stroll around the village experiencing the architectural styles favored in New England during the 18th and 19th centuries. And of course stories and accounts of the persons who’ve given Stowe its rich and colorful story.


Tours are offered two days a week: Thursday and Saturday. Advanced reservations through GoStowe are encouraged. The cost is $20 per person, plus 6% VT Sales Tax (kids 5 and under no charge). Our groups are a maximum of 14. We meet at the Stowe Area Association/Go Stowe building in the heart of the Village on Main St. We depart at 11 AM sharp for the early tour and at 2 PM sharp for the late tour, so please show up no less than 15 minutes prior to departure. Sometimes the tour route varies due to client questions and interests. Since this is an outside walking excursion, please note that we could cover 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 miles. Also consider weather. We head out sun or rain, so be prepared with the proper clothing, sunscreen, hats, etc., and water.
