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.

I highly recommend Trish to all who are interest in African-American and native American history as a guide. It does not matter if you are a beginner, expert or intermediate; however, at what ever level, you will discover and find out information you did not know. You will learn about history that is not covered in any other tour. She... More

The WALK ABOUT HISTORY TOUR with Trish was an excellent choice as first time visitors. Trish provided us with an overview of Colonial Williamsburg in about two hours or so as we walked the historic city center. A wealth of information, she made sure to cover the history of the region, including that of the European Colonists and Native American... More

This is the only Af-am tour we found in Williamsburg and it was everything we hoped. Trish tells history truthfully without the usual sugar-coat. That's when my husband and I engaged. Trish connected us to afr-ams who struggled, and triumphed inspite of their circumstances but would have otherwise remained nameless. We came away proud of our history, and of the... More

I took my twin 9yr old twin girls and my 7yr old son and they were bored the whole time. They thought we were going inside spooky houses. Our tour guide was very nice and told many interesting stories about a few houses there. There wasn't as much walking as I thought though the kids were tired. Only a few... More
