Also, we are proud to say the local community of Williamsburghas awarded us special accolades.

Here’s what Colonial Ghosts's award for the “Best of Williamsburg” tour said in 2014:

“Each year, the Williamsburg Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Williamsburg area a great place to live, work and play. Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2015 Williamsburg Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Williamsburg Award Program and data provided by third parties.”

The Williamsburg Award Program is an annual awards program honoring the achievements and accomplishments of local businesses throughout the Williamsburg area. Recognition is given to those companies that have shown the ability to use their best practices and implemented programs to generate competitive advantages and long-term value. The award is not based on popularity or votes acquired.

Commercially, we have been recognized as a top contender by both U.S. City Traveler and Trip Advisor as one of the Top 13 Ghost Tours in the entire United States, the best Ghost Tour company in Williamsburg, Virginia, and the 4th best attraction in Williamsburg, Virginia in any category, including wine tasting, sailing and even zip-lining!
