    We booked this tour months in advance. We show up for our tour early and waited past the meeting time. No one showed up and no one ever reached out to us to cancel or apologize. Very disappointing as this was one of those must dos for our trip

    Ghost Your, Different
    Tim takes you on a tour of various places within Williamsburg tells a story about the house and shows you pictures of ghosts which he supposedly has taken at that location. The “ghost” pictures are geared towards the story. I am not sold on him taking pictures of ghosts because anyone with Photoshop ability could create these. Tim is a great presenter, and the photos he shows draws you into the story. He gives some great historical information about places we visit. Overall it was a fun night if you just take it at that. Questioning whether to give this a 3 or 4 and decided on 3 because at the start of tour, he just gave us a sales pitch for his books.

    Fun!
    Lots of photos shown of where he has found ghosts in old Williamsburg. Amazing the way Tim can use the equipment to capture the faces once the picture has been taken. Nothing scary. Very interesting. Prepare to walk from one end to the other. Prepare for longer than an hour. Well worth the fee. Be prepared to tip at the end bc you will be amazed at what all he can show you.

    Learning about the history of Williamsburg and the ghosts that haunt it. The pictures were incredible and I now am a firm believer in ghosts.

    Great ghost tour!
    My wife and I along with three teenage daughters went for a tour with Tim, it was a fantastic time and everyone enjoyed it. I’m usually a skeptic but there were more than s few times I got the chills from Tim’s story telling and photo’s. We have done a few other tours and this one was by far the best. It’s not the usual memorized ghost stories. Tim shows pictures he has taken and published in several books and just presents things in a matter of fact way never trying to convince you to believe in ghosts or anything else, he presents the pictures and let’s you decided what you see and many are mind blowing. Tim is well respected in the field and has been asked to do work for radio and TV programs. We highly recommend this tour over the usual local memorized tours offered around town. You will not be disappointed!

    A Chilling Experience
    This tour is a one of a kind and a must for those who love ghost tours, history tours, etc. Tim was outstanding and is an awesome photographer. Some of his photos are extremely spooky and will give you the chills. He taught us what to look for when taking pictures. I always shoot with a small camera and usually get orbs, but I never thought about taking pictures, seeing a light cloud, and cropping them to see what is in those pictures. We did get faces. It's truly amazing. Tim is knowledgeable about the area and will keep you mesmerized. We will go on the ghostographer tour again and we are planning to buy Tim's book. I would have uploaded my pictures, but what is showing on the camera, won't show on my computer. First, I uploaded the pictures and made duplicates, just in case I cropped incorrectly. Then I went back into my computer and the ghostly pictures were gone. So I uploaded again. Now those same pictures are black. All the other pictures are fine. No, not operator error. It's very bizarre.

    Excellent ghost tour. Tim shared his amazing ghost photos and stories on an engaging tour. He showed us the sites that he has captured some of his images and gave us plenty of time to take as many photos as we wanted.

    Amazing ghost tour!
    Amazing tour!! Interesting, intriguing, and spooky stories about the Williamsburg area. The uniqueness of the tour is that the guide provides a plethora of photographs he has taken, which further validates the stories and enhances the overall experience. Choose this tour, guys!! You won't be disappointed.

    It’s my Birthday!
    We had so much fun on the Williamsburg West Tour! The pictures helped tell the story of the area. Our guide was so knowledgeable and kept us engaged. I was so shocked when I went to take a picture by the church two images went past me so fast I couldn’t capture them but it FREAKED me out!

    This was a great ghost tour! Tim has the pictures to back the ghost stories. I don't think that can be said for many ghost tours. TIm is very knowledgeable and a good storyteller.

    Tim has many interesting stories and theories to share. He was attentive to my husband’s and my stories too. We look forward to his trip to Arizona to find more ghosts. Hopefully ours are not malevolent. Thanks Tim!

    Interesting, informative and fun.
    We highly recommend this tour! Tim and his pictures are just amazing. He was able to tell us history of the homes and show us images of the ghost pics he had taken. He encouraged us to take our own pics at the sites he pointed out and to review them later to see if we had captured a ghost in them. We were so excited the next day when we reviewed our pics to find we had captured a clear image along with several less perfect ones. We could not have asked for a nicer or more informative guide!

    Photos of Ghosts
    Been on “a couple” of ghost tours and Tim’s tour is one of a kind. The tour is focused on the photos Tim has taken and the locations where he took them. While I remain a skeptic, the blend of images, historic location, and stories were worth the time and money. I would have no problems taking another tour!

    Awesome Ghost Tour!
    Did not know what to expect with this tour and Tim took my family on a fantastic journey through Colonial Williamsburg! We enjoy the telling of the ghost stories and the enhancement of the photography he has captured. He gets you involved by getting you to take pictures. You are hoping that you can capture some ghost images too. I would recommend this tour with the highest marks.

    Not your average ghost tour
    If you are looking for a ghost tour with a twist this is the tour for you. Tim was awesome and his photographs were amazing. We took the 10 pm tour but I would love to have done both. So I suggest doing what we did. Start your stay with the ghost tour offered at the visitors center. They take you inside the houses and tell you stories. Then visit the sites during the day. Finish your stay with Tim. When your tour is over your experience in Williamsburg will be completely transformed. Things that didn't make complete sense during the day will be crystal clear. You may also be sorry you ever set foot inside one house in particular. Thanks again Tim.

The night was very informative and interesting. We heard some interesting stories and saw photos of possible ghosts. Took photos ourselves. One of the best tours we have taken for night walks and “ghosts”. We hss as be taken many this was also not crowded like the others going on at the same time. You will enjoy your time for sure.

I really enjoyed this! Mr. Scullion was an entertaining guide, and it was fun to wander the streets of Colonial Williamsburg at night while listening to his stories and seeing his photos (which he displayed on his laptop). Even if you're a skeptic, just hearing the tales & legends helped bring old Williamsburg to life. Highly recommended! And one of his books is available at the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center, if you're interested.

Great tour! Tim was extremely knowledgeable. He kept us (including my 8 y/o son) intrigued while telling stories and showing fascinating pics. We loved the tour so much that we found, and listened to several podcasts featuring Tim on the way home. If you want to see creepy convincing images ,with equally intriguing stories, this is the tour for you. Best ghost tour I’ve been on and fun experience for my family.

It was a private tour that we had with Tim in December and it was educational and exciting to see the many possibilities for actual ghosts in Old Williamsburg. Not only did Tim provide the ghost tour he also gave us some insight as to the historical significance of Williamsburg in the early days and about some of the real residents during that time frame. It was definitely the highlight of our trip.

All we did was basically walk around the block and look at photos on the guy’s tablet. It was ok for 30 min or so and then it became very redundant, the best part was honestly just walking around and hoping to get some footage with my phone. The tour was way too long for the content. We left before it was over.

This tour is Heavily Advertised as showing real ghost photos at every stop, so why would you purchase tickets if you felt that way about "Ghosts on a tablet"? There are over 20 other ghost tours that just tell real or fabricated stories about ghosts to choose from.

Disappointing to say the least. This tour was mostly made up of looking at photos that may or may not have been ghost pictures. Some stories were told but we spent most of the time looking at his computer screen. After an hour, it was redundant and ended up being quite boring.

All advertisements and descriptions for this tour state that you will see real ghost photos at every stop as well as the ghost stories that go along with them. Why would you purchase tickets to this tour when there are over 20 other ghost tours that just tell stories?
