  • My friends and I went last night, and we thought it was awesome! Our tour guide was Kris, and he was very friendly, knowledgeable and ready to answer any of your questions. I had no idea that most of the sites even existed, and I had never heard any of the stories before.

  • Booked the 8pm tour and added the extended tour. Let’s say we were not disappointed at all. Our guide Chris did an awesome job presenting the stories of ghosts with historical information and eyewitness accounts. We had a great time! I recommend you add the extended tour for a few dollars more.

  • We booked the Ultimate Ghost Tour (9/9/14 @ 11pm) with the hopes of getting a better tour (one not toned down to be kid-friendly). Our guides were amazing! My only regret is that we didn’t have the time to book the other tour they offer for the week we were there. This is a must-do and will blow the other ghost tours out of the water!

  • This was the most interesting part of the trip. The kids loved it also. We all learned so much about the area. The tour was well worth the price.

  • We had great fun on the tour. Our guide Lance was really interesting and funny. My two sons (12 and 9) had EMF detectors that went off a couple of times. We really liked the stories on this tour, and I would book the extended version of this tour if we return to the area. It is lots of fun for a family evening out.

  • Our guides were very professional, knowledgeable and interactive with the tour, and we would highly recommend them anytime. During the tour we even felt a paranormal presence at least twice, which made it even more amazing. Definitely a ‘must’ for those eager or curious about the supernatural in colonial Williamsburg.

  • The tour itself was filled with research, information from interviews, facts, quotes and history of the area itself. It was so much more than we expected.
