About The Story Weaver
Wander around the streets of Prince Albert on the evening Ghost Walk and hear stories of characters from the past and the ghosts who don't want to leave! Or join a Historical Ramble and discover the fascinating tales of days gone by as you admire a wide range of architecture. Prince Albert has so many stories! The Walks are informative and entertaining - fun for families but also suited to those with a deeper interest in the 250+ year history and the culture of our small rural South African community.

It brought the whole town alive for us. There is so much more than shop fronts, there is rich deep history there.

I booked a ghost tour with Ailsa and had a thoroughly good evening! I was the only person booked (due to Covid-19 lockdown and tourism standstill in SA) and she was still most happy to accompany me. We had a wonderful walk through this incredible town and Ailsa passionately shared some great stories, sights and cultural information. The crisp evening and sunset glow made it even more special. It's recommended to do the tour with her early on during your stay to see the town with a knowledgeable perspective and appreciation. lt will definitely enrich your visit to Prince Albert! Ailsa was also able to assist with additional questions and information that I required.

This experience is a must for anyone visiting Prince Albert. Ailsa is such a fantastic guide and storyteller, as she talks about the history of the town and the ghosts that linger, you find yourself hooked on her every word. Her walks are truly a fantastic experience and her warmth and friendliness makes you feel right at home. I would be honored to do another walk with her when I find myself in Prince Albert again.

We enjoyed the ghost walk thoroughly!! Ailsa shared her knowledge with so much enthusiam and is a brilliant storyteller! She had us in awe! From stories about how Prince Albert came to be, historical events, the architecture, to all the interesting characters that inhabited this wonderful town, and the ghosts that are still sticking around, because in Ailsa's words - "the town is just too wonderful for them to leave!" Loved every second of the tour!

A walk with Ailsa is a must as early as possible in your stay in Prince Albert. She has such a wealth of knowledge about the history, architecture, characters, geography and legends of the town. Then as you explore the town later her talks bring so much added enjoyment. Although there were only the two of us on the walk - and it hardly seemed worth her while to take us out, she did so with great enthusiasm.

It is always a pleasure to share Prince Albert with visitors, Brian! What's really special for me is that so many visitors are as captivated by the town as I am. Thank you for your review - I do hope you and Barbara will visit us again. I have added you to my mailing list for my newsletter so you'll be receiving Prince Albert titbits on a regular basis. Ailsa.
