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

After visiting in June 2014, my family & I came back to Williamsburg for a few days in August 2014 and we enjoyed another great experience with Bonnie-the owner and tour guide. For this walking tour Bonnie was dressed as Catherine Rathell and we were again really impressed with her excellent presentation. We think it's ALWAYS A REALLY NEAT EXPERIENCE... More

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

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

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...
