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

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

Such a wonderful family friendly tour! I loved this tour and Bonnie did such an amazing job portraying her character she was dressed in costume and acted out the part of a woman from the 1700s she was also very sweet and friendly to everyone in the group. The directions on the website were easily to follow and checking in... More

I am so glad you enjoyed the tour and that you took the time to post your pics, as well. It is always fun to go home, after the tour, only to realize you were able to bring some of those ghosts home with you, in photos. I am always amazed by what people take. I love seeing them. Thank... More

Spooks and Legends is by far the best ghost tour that I have ever been on. The tour guide always stayed in character, and made it feel like we were back in time. Anytime we would walk to the next destination, she always made sure we were together, and that we could hear her. This is my favorite thing to... More

Family friendly. Bonnie is a wonderful tour guide with so much historical knowledge an experiences. It's very dark & mysterious on the roads of Colonial Williamsburg. My family witnessed shutters gradually opening from the inside of the George Wythe home. I also have a picture of the blue orb in the basement window she spoke of. Very exciting!! Thank you... More

I am so glad you enjoyed the tour and especially glad you saw the shutters open and close and the blue orb. What makes the tour authentic is that we do not have any control over what is seen or heard. Things seen and / or heard happen on their own. So glad you got to experience some of that... More

We've attended several ghost tours and thought this looked interesting.The tickets were $7 each on Groupon. Directions on the website were clear and check in was easy. Although there were over 40 people in our group, and we sometimes had trouble hearing, we could still keep up. The guide was dressed in costume and acted the part of a woman... More

I'm so sorry you were disappointed. Though I have been doing this same tour for years, with excellent reviews overall, I do realize there is something for everyone. I do see that the recent negative reviews, however, are very close together and are from people who have never posted another good or bad review, not even to review the other... More

This was a great, family-friendly tour. Bonnie does a great job at portraying her character, as well as being extremely pleasant to everyone. After going on the tour, I reached out to Bonnie to see if she would be willing to donate tickets to an auction for a non-profit charity event. Bonnie was extremely willing and generous; she even wanted... More

This tour was unique and entertaining and I plan to visit again soon. I noticed the historical tours was a small market and competition for customers seemed to be fierce, but Bonnie was so kind and professional and we were immediately drawn to her experienced approach to this specialized market. She had obviously done research on her subjects and presented... More

My family and I have been on ghost tours around the country, including three official ghost tours through Coloonial Williamsburg, which are first rate. The tour guide for Spooks and Legends was rude and on several occasions raised her voice and attempted to humiliate members of the group. The tour guide, who is also the owner, explained that she would... More

Started with rudeness and ended that way... What we thought would be a group of 15-20 ended up being what seemed like over 50 people. This company is all about the numbers and not the experience. NOT scary at all, just a history lesson which was interesting but not what was advertise. Guide was not able to maintain good flow... More
