Overview

Our 1-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 1 1/2-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. Our unique African American History Tour is specific to the Black experience in Williamsburg and lasts 1 1/2 hours. ALL TOURS ARE OUTDOOR WALKING TOURS. WE DO NOT GO INSIDE THE BUILDINGS. 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.

The truth is often lost in the past. That's why, in many cultures, the oral tradition of storytelling is so important -- and interpretation should be based on documentation whenever possible.

This tour (the African American History Tour) is very informative. It is interesting and the guide seems to have really done her research. The tour includes a lot of interesting and scandalous details about colonial times and the treatment of slaves and native Americans. However,...More

Our tours are based on facts, which point out parallels in history, not politics. In this case -- a reference to minority internment camps in the U.S. over the years, including the present -- elicited comments from you that were far from gentle and an...More

We can't fully remember the past without the constant retelling of what we know to be true. Revisionist history helps no one. Thank you for letting us know our message is appreciated. -- David

There are several paid lots nearby. We parked at the Visitor's Center which was free. It was a little farther away and made for a good walk, but certainly not horrible. Just make sure to allow yourself plenty of extra... More
