Owner description: 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.

Groupon was why I selected this company over the others.... Guide was in costume and was very knowledgeable.... I was often too far away to hear as there were a lot of people gathered around.

The tour was entertaining, informative and fun. It was easy to make reservations and check in. Bonnie, our guide, stayed in character the entire tour. She portrays the spirit of a slightly crazy woman who is said to currently haunt one of the original structures in the colonial area. She did an amazing job. The stories were entertaining and some...

We are well traveled and have attended many events in many places, this was by far the worst we have ever experienced as far as customer service goes. After all the hassle, we should have just listened to the locals we spoke with and avoided it all together. Very disappointed.

I'm so sorry you were disappointed. We have been told our customer service is the best. I just wish you had elaborated a bit more so we could improve on whatever it is that you are referring to.Without details, we cannot address the issue. Thank you for posting. Bonnie Florek More

My wife and I went on this tour while spending an anniversary weekend in Williamsburg. Like many old towns, Williamsburg is full of ghost tours. We chose this on because of the good reviews and the fact that it did not appear to be over-the-top and campy like many proprietors of ghost tours are. We made the right decision. Right... More

My family and I attended the newest Spooks and Legends Tour on Saturday 11-Oct-2014. I can tell you the tour was absolutely amazing!

My family had a great time on the tour. Bonnie was very kind and carefully explained the history of each house. The seventy-five minutes flew by quickly. After the tour ends, you can also go back to the house and take additional pictures or examine them closer. Overall, we had a pleasant time and highly recommend this to everyone!

My husband and I had a little getaway to Williamsburg for three days and while looking on Groupon for things to do in the area, I saw this haunted tour. We had never been on a haunted tour before, but I have always wanted to so of course I had to take advantage of the deal. My husband doesn't believe... More

We saw the Groupon before we left home in NJ so I purchased the Groupon and booked the Ghost Tour before leaving home. We went on a Friday night so Williamsburg was pretty busy. We loved it. We loved that Bonnie was in costume and living in the past times as many of the other costumed performers do during the... More

Thank you for letting me know you had a nice time. Nothing makes me happier! And I do appreciate your mentioning the Groupon. Though it says to reserve 72 hours in advance, with a Groupon, I do waive that rule whenever I can, though I am not obligated to do so. As you mentioned, summer is a busy time. Consequently,... More

Wanted to try something different, rather than the regular history daytime tours. It was fun and just a little creepy. Not scary enough that kids can't enjoy it. The history behind the buildings was interesting. Would've been nice to go inside the buildings, or get a little closer, but I understand rules are rules. We got totally lost and missed... More
