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.

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

The walking tour was really good and very informative!!! Trish was an excellent tour guide and full of information. She answered all of our questions and was so nice! My ten year old son loved the tour and learned a lot that is not taught in schools. The hour and a half went by so quickly, I wanted to keep... 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!!!

This is by far the best and only way to see and experience Colonial Williamsburg! You can go by yourself and just walk around but that doesn't get you behind closed doors. You get the expert knowledge of the wonderful and friendly tour guide too! A-#1 Don't miss it!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I took the Walk About History tour yesterday with my mom and sister, and it was great! Our tour guide took us through Williamsburg and kept the history interesting. Every time she pointed out a historical home or building, she would follow with a good story or historical gossip to go along with it. I am not usually... More

Trish was an excellent tour guide for our family when we visited Williamsburg last week. We took the history tour. She told us so many interesting stories about the places we saw as we walked. She shared an amazing amount of knowledge, and my two teen age granddaughters seemed to enjoy the tour as much as the adults in our... More

Trish Duncan did a historic walking tour with us. She was absolute phenomenal! She had lots of information, about EVERY site and EVERY person involved. She not only knew the stories, but she knew the "inside stories and the back stories.". She also does ghost tours, and more!!!
