Our one-hour Ghostly Tales tour takes you through Williamsburg's historic area in the evening. You will be introduced to the historic importance of each site visited, you will hear of the local ghostly legends that surround them, and of recent encounters with the spirits that reside there. Our Walk About History tour is a one-hour introduction to the history of Williamsburg - its historical importance, development in the 18th century, glimpses into daily life of colonial inhabitants, and modern restoration. An excellent choice if you have limited time to visit Williamsburg, or are looking for an in-depth orientation before touring the town on your own.

We did not purchase tickets through Colonial Williamsburg. We didn't feel the need to spend that money on going into the small little houses. When you seen one, you seen them all. You can entered the area without paying, it is free. You only have to pay if you want to go into certain houses. We chose to purchase our... More

We selected the ghost tour and were not disappointed. Part of the charm, in addition to the stories, was walking the streets at night. Williamsburg is beautiful and worth visiting both day and at night. Ghost stories were not scary, but small children may not be able to maintain interest. Entire tour was approximately 90 minutes, and on a warm... More

Great way to spend an evening after the shops close and crowds disperse. The ghost tour is not too frightful and has excellent storytelling. Tours take place even on rainy nights. Get your ticket early. Read discriptions to check the appropriate audience age level.

We spent the day at colonial Williamsburg. We had a great time, but the highlight of our day was the walking history tour with Trish. She is one of the best history tour guides we have ever seen. Trish had great information, and sources when we asked. She was so friendly and relational, and expert and insightful at the same... More

We loved our walking tour with Trish around Colonial Williamsburg. She is an amazing story-teller, so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and lucky enough to have such a rich heritage of history to reference. Tour was fun, engaging, interesting and educational. Plenty of opportunity to ask questions. We are not motivated to read up a bit more on history and come back... More

Our tour guide, Trish was wonderful. Her wealth of knowledge on the history of the people, buildings and regional culture was phenomenal. She was able to answer all questions asked by the people on our tour. She had wonderful suggestions of other things to do in the Williamsburg and surrounding areas. I highly recommend this tour!!!
