Your tour guide comes to you from the 18th century, returning from the other side. On a ghostly, candlelit walk, your new 18th century “friend” will take you to Williamsburg’s most haunted house, where 23 evil ghostly inhabitants bring the past to life. Don’t forget to introduce yourself if you are unfortunate enough to meet such a spirit, face to face. Your skin will crawl, you will have goosebumps, and by the end of the tour you will be looking over your shoulder. If you hear screams, you know it’s a Spooks and Legends Tour. Join us if you dare. And be sure to bring your camera. You never know what you might find in those photos! Please meet 15 minutes prior to tour time. « less

My fiancé planned a date night for us while we were visiting for the weekend. Unfortunately they were booked but being the amazing man he is he asked her if there is any way she could squeeze us in because we were leaving town the next day. She screamed at him that she already had 46 people on the tour... More

We bought our tickets on Groupon and the owner would not honor them Not only that but she was very rude on the tele and hung up on us Funny, you need help so you offer a deal and when somebody pays for that deal you refuse to honor it.

I'm so glad you wrote so that I can not only explain to you again, but also for others who choose to purchase Groupons. As I told you both several times, over the phone, Groupons require a reservation of 72 hours in advance. You called just a couple hours before the tour that already had over 40 people on it...a...

My kids and I really enjoyed this experience in July. I've done some of the other tours in the area and I think the costumed performers interacting during the tour really adds to the experience. Enjoy!!

I attended a tour and loved it! The stories she tells us are from history. She was very personable, talking with all the quests. She "stayed in character" till the end and answered any questions the group had. I am not sure if I believe in ghosts, but I had some interesting pictures I couldn't explain. There are more ghost...

My best friend and I came to Williamsburg in May- only for it to be a very rainy week! Coming out to the Spooks and Legends Tour was the first thing we were able to do outside that week and it was worth the rainy wait! It was very entertaining and we enjoyed it very much. Since then I have... More

My husband and I have been on several Ghost Tours throughout the South. This was one of the best we have attended. The fact our tour guide was in character and shared stories about ghost and history was fantastic. Our 10 year old b/g twins really enjoyed it also.

I am a long time resident of wmbsg and have taken many of my guests on many of the local tours. This was the worst tour I ever went on. The stories were mostly background talks on various colonial pieces in the historic district ie the pillory, the various signage. The cemetery visit she advertises was standing the the middle...

I do remember your group so well....all with Groupons and one 8 year old you refused to pay for saying she was 6. Her sister told the truth though. I also remember one of your party being intoxicated. Consequently, your review is not worthy of any other response. More

This is a great tour with the perfect mix of ghost stories and history. Bonnie stays in character and really sets the mood for the evening. Her act is believable and I love the other characters that come into play as well. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone spending time in Williamsburg. - The History Girl
