Description: Original Haunted Tour ....rated #1 in town. Come join us on Williamsburg's...
Original Haunted Tour ....rated #1 in town. Come join us on Williamsburg's most haunted, frightening tour in Williamsburg! 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.

The first time we went on this ghost tour I was not sure what to expect as it was my first. Bonnie showed up in character and did an AMAZING job of telling ghost stories about the haunted town as well as telling some of the history that the area has all in character. It was so good that we... More

Our Guide "Lucy Ludwell" was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I was taken on this tour for a surprise, and I was so happy that I went. History was abounding and the eerie nature of the tours was felt. I would do it again!!!!

This was the first haunted tour I ever went on, and tour guide Bonnie set the bar high. It turns out Colonial Williamsburg is the perfect setting for spooky lore, which it happens to be rich in. The stories told seemed authentic, and there were at least a couple of moments where my partner and I felt a shiver! Bonnie... More

We had a great time on this tour! Our guide, Bonnie, was highly entertaining and you could tell she wanted everyone to enjoy their experience. Extra bonus points for telling the ghost stories in costume as an 18th century character, which added to the ghoulish atmosphere. We also joined the tour last minute and Bonnie was very accommodating. It was... More
