About Colonial Ghosts
Colonial Ghosts is the most real walking ghost tour through Colonial Williamsburg and the College of William and Mary, ranked as one the Top 10 Ghost Tours in the US. Colonial Ghosts was awarded the Best of Williamsburg Tour Operator, and has been recognized by Huffington Post and Southern Living Magazine. Our stories are taken from our own research and interviews with people who have had first hand haunting experiences, not from folklore. See our youtube page or website for captured hauntings and interviews! We have tour options appropriate for everyone and private groups of all sizes. This tour features more locations and hauntings not covered on other tours. We take a documentary and factual approach to the hauntings, versus a fantasy or costume-lantern-theatrical approach. Guests often witness hauntings on our tours, most commonly during the 10PM Ultimate Tour. Tours are offered nightly at 8 and 9pm, lasting one hour. Ultimate tours at 10pm are 90 minutes. All tours have an exclusive extended tour through the College of William and Mary that adds 30 minutes and several new tour locations! All tours are appropriate for all ages. Children 6 and under are free to the 8 and 9pm tours. Our stories are derived from factual events, research, history, personal accounts, and hauntings sourced from eyewitnesses accounts and those captured on video, which you can view on our website. The special 10PM Ultimate Tour is perfect for adults and offered on select nights. The latest tour available in Williamsburg features new locations and stories not featured on other tours. More importantly, this is the tour where most witness paranormal activity during or after the tour. Electromagnetic field detectors (EMFs) are available to rent to help identify paranormal activity near each person for $6 each. We also offer a GPS guided audio tour app on iTunes and Google Play that features several more haunted locations in Williamsburg, in addition to 20 other cities across the US. We want to make sure you have fun and are entertained by the intriguing tales of haunted Williamsburg on your ghost tour of Williamsburg. From large private groups over 200 to small intimate birthday, business, or bridal parties, we want to serve and scare you! Many of our guests witness strange phenomena on our tours, and we're not talking about "orbs" in photos! Many have felt hand on their shoulders, something breathing on them, or have even been choked. We hope you'll join us on one of our ghost tours!

We’re local, Yorktown residents. We went (in the rain) on a Saturday night tour. William, our guide, was knowledgeable, interesting and easy-going. The tour was a leisurely stroll, with amusing “haunted” stories. I recommend.

Our tour guide, Andrew, was fantastic! He projected and enunciated really well. His way of teasing out every story really allowed our imagination to run wild. We could have enjoyed this tour for hours on end. This was such a fun experience and a unique introduction to the area's haunted history!
