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.

We had a great Christmas tour of Williamsburg. The guide was very knowledgeable and answered our many questions. It is not a very long walk, so very doable for all ages.

The tour guide Trish was very knowledgeable in the history of Williamsburg African American history. We think it can be improved by actually going into the buildings that the guide is speaking of.

Trish, our guide for this tour, was excellent! She was extremely knowledgeable and obviously cares a great deal about this subject.

The other family on the walk was black and I wondered how they would react to the information we all were learning. They were as fascinated... More
