Great experience. The guide was knowledgeable and fun. I do believe I caught something quite unusual in the 2 photos taken milliseconds apart.

Our guide Ben weaved a memorable night, full of history and ghosts. He was an excellent story-teller, drawing our group in with tales from the past, casting a spell on the audience. Ben presented with great narrative timing, thought quick on his feet, and was a wonderful balance of humor and spooky. Well-paced tour and fun for the whole family - would recommend!

Great tour! We had a full moon the night of our tour which added to the spookiness! My husband and I really enjoyed hearing the stories and seeing the spooky sites in Colonial Williamsburg. Would definitely recommend. Good for families as well.

Awesome tour!
We really enjoyed the walking tour with Rick, our tour guide. He was fun, interactive, and told a lot of stories(some personal) and history that we had not heard before, even being frequent visitors of Williamsburg. He kept all the adults, and our young daughters (10 and 6) entertained the entire 1.5 hours. He even showed some awesome photos that people in previous tours had shared with him, including orbs and full figured spirits in colonial clothing! Would definitely recommend!

Rick was amazing, he not only knew his history, but what a character. He really went out of his way to make sure it was an immersive experience, and instead of just reciting a script, he was very charismatic and a true tribute to storytelling! We can’t say enough good things about Rick, give this man a raise!

Not what I expected
Oct 2021 • Friends
Missed some interesting points for example in the Briton Parish graveyard on the tombstone. We left the tour after about 45 minutes because we felt he was not really talking about the sites in Williamsburg and more background. He knew his stuff but we found it boring and catered more to the kids in the group than the adults. I would not recommend this to adults.
