      Fun new date idea
      My girlfriend and I wanted to try something new and had a great time. Heather was fun, personable, and knowledgeable. Learned a little history and met some great people on the tour.

      Great tour with fun stories and drinks to match
      We had a great time on this tour! Lots of fun stories and area facts and we saw a little bit of the area that we hadn’t yet explored. Our guide was funny, informative, and friendly. It was a wonderful experience getting to socialize with him and the other members of our group!

      Great date night fun!
      My husband and I thought this would be a fun date night and we enjoyed ourselves. We walked around parts of CW with weird, funny, and even gross stories about the previous residents and visitors. Heather was a great tour guide. She was attentive to the various needs of the people in our group and she was open and respectful and honest.

      A Murderous Good Time
      Our guide Heather had amazing energy and knowledge. We enjoyed the pubs that were chosen. Our whole family had a great time visiting from California. We learned a lot about the colonial area and had some good laughs.

      Great Christmas Spirits Tour
      Had a blast with Heather, our amazing tour guide. We got some really good pics(some creepy ones, too). We heard some historic and spooky stories. Our tour guide Heather was an amazing storyteller that made our hour and a half fly by.

      Overall a pretty good tour
      The tour was nice, and the guide very knowledgeable, very friendly and interesting to talk to. I would have liked to have gone in to the houses like the official Williamsburg Ghost Tour and wolf like to have seen our guide in colonial clothing. Other then than that, it was a good tour.

      Had a great time! The stories were entertaining and our guide Heather was very knowledgeable. My daughter even took an interesting photo that may have caught something paranormal.

      Husband happy, cool tour guide
      I booked this tour because my husband loves this kind of thing and I try to book one everytime we visit somewhere that offers one. The tour guide, Heather, was very nice and kind of picked up on my I love my husband but I don’t wanna see your ghost photos vibes right quick, which THANK YOU. My husband enjoyed himself, Heather was cool, and frankly in my book if you check all those boxes you did a great job!

      Not Worth It
      The tour company is not affiliated with Colonial Williamsburg. This means that Colonial Williamsburg can cause things to change. We went on 12/16. Instead of it being 7PM it was 8:30PM (and basically you had no choice but to go at that time). We walked about 4 blocks as the guide "talked" about stuff. It was all outside, we never went into any of the properties. I was not convinced on any of the stories. At the Randolph House she made a play at seeing something in the window (totally fake). The guide was a nice lady, and I was fine with doing it, but I wouldn't do it again and don't recommend it at all.

      Unexplained tour cancellation.
      We went to the appointed meeting site 20 minutes prior to the scheduled tour start time. There was nobody there, tour guide or other customers. It turned out that they cancelled the tour a little over an hour prior to the start time. They tried to contact us, but we did not have our phone with us. We did not receive any explanation for the cancellation. We waited in the cold until 20 minutes after the start time and finally gave up. The next day, they did refund our charges.

      Lost and found
      We were lost and Nate, our guide, sent us a text and came to the rescue! On the tour, he was knowledgeable and was great at spinning the tales! We’ll definitely return and bring friends! (And I don’t mean return as a ghost….or do I!)

      Fun and historic
      Took the tour on 3.13.23 after a bit of rain. It was fun. Unfortunately I don't remember 5he name of our guide but he was very knowledgeable and made it spooky. I jumped once or twice.

      Great job Dennis
      Now don’t get me wrong the guide Dennis was friendly and very knowledgeable however nothing that I saw in this tour gabe me belief in the paranormal. Do I belive in paranormal activity? Absolutely I’ve had several experiences and today was the absolute worse. So many things were questionable and to be completely honest after an hour of watching this I left. It was a total waste of money and I’m pretty sure I will never attend another.

    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!

    Nikkie is an amazing tour guide - everyone in our group were fascinated by her stories. She is very entertaining, interactive, knowledgeble. Our tour was on Friday, April 2nd. Today we walked around Williamsburg and my 18 y.o. son was repeating these stories and connecting them with real history figures and searching for deeper understanding of past event. Truly exeptional expirience! I will definetely come back and very highly recommend this tour!

    We enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Carey, was excellent. Her enthusiasm made the experience fun and informative. We did a Colonial Williamsburg ghost tour a few years ago, and the only advantage was going inside some colonial houses. We didn't get as many stories, and it was quite pricey. I suspect with Covid regulations, they aren't going into houses because of the inability to social distance. I strongly recommend this tour. The 90 minutes flew by.

    My daughter and I love the paranormal and have taken several ghost tours along the East Coast. Hands down this company provides the best tours of any that we have done. Our guide on the 19th was Randy who was very knowledgeable and entertaining at the same time. My daughter and I both captured images in photos at Bruton Parish and saw something in the graveyard just past the red gates on the side entrance. We will be back in October for the Extreme Tour and the Murder Cruise!!!!

    This may be more fun under regular circumstances but guide did not practice social distancing by any means. Pulled people up next to him, yelled in faces & down played mask wearing. We did not feel comfortable and left. What we did stay for was just a short walk and a couple stories.

    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!

    Rick was an excellent tour guide. He engaged his audience and kept us intrigued as he walked us through each stop on the tour. Each story had a life if it's own and was well versed.. A true delight to take a tour with. So much fun and educational all mixed in one. Thanks for an excellent adventure!!

    Rick did a great job and was courteous, informed, and went to great lengths to engage the audience. He was a natural storyteller.

    Having said that, however, we could have done with more ghost stories (which we paid for) and fewer tales about emerging sayings. Perhaps he could also have spent less time encouraging people to take photographs of orbs.

    In addition, we spent a great deal of time in just several areas standing, and we would have liked to have been able to move through different locations.

    Our guide Ben was excellent. Great storyteller. He made the stories come alive with facial expressions, hand gestures and vocal changes. Very entertaining. We got some excellent history with a touch of the paranormal. Definitely will be doing this activity again in the future.

    Our tour guide Rick really made our experience as great as it was! He was amazing and clearly loved doing what he does. He not only shared some really cool ghost stories, but he also shared a lot of history. He was very interactive with the group and had volunteers come up when he would reenact some of the stories. He was very personable and was by far the BEST guide we have ever had on a tour, anywhere! If you go on this tour, I would definitely request him if possible. Thank you Rick for giving us a very fun and informative night!
