About The Original Ghost Tour
We are Virginia’s oldest ghost tour. The Original Ghosts of Williamsburg Candlelight Walking Tour stands above all others as the most authentic and successful ghost tour in Williamsburg. Our exclusive copyrighted research and writings our tours are based on verifiable facts and actual hauntings, not fabricated tales or unsourced stories. Paranormal events do happen on our tours, and we will take you to secret locations where the hauntings are likely to occur. So be sure to bring a camera along with your courage! Our 30 year old, 90 minute family friendly Original Ghost Tour meets at the William & Mary Bookstore in Merchants Square. In 2012 we launched the first late night Extreme Tour. This 2 hour tour meets at Bruton Parish Church. For the last three decades we have toured thousands of happy guests who return year after year, knowing that nobody does a ghost tour like we do. After all, we invented them!
