There are two different ghost tours in Williamsburg. This one goes into 3 different houses and you sit and listen to a spooky story. The story has nothing to do with the people who lived in that house and nothing to do with ghost sitings...More

Someone reviewed this tour as a series of girl scout stories around the fire and that pretty much describes it except you don't have the excitement of a dancing fire. A snooze fest. The most interesting thing was being inside the houses at night. We...More

I went on a tour called Ghosts Among Us and was not impressed. In the Colonial Williamsburg adverts, they had said that this would be the scarier of the two ghost tours. I didn't find it at all scary and it had limited moments of...More

This was really an interesting tour. The guide was very informative and he added some historical information as well. It wasn't really scary but I don't believe it was intended to be. It really did raise my interest into the paranormal activity in some of...More

Our walk began at the Weavers, then a quick walk to behind the Court House for the official rules. Then across the way to the Peyton Randolf House (I think) for an overly dramatic rendition of events there. Then a quick walk to the Prentis...More

This one is put on my Colonial Williamsburg, but you do not enter the buildings. Bummer #1. The groups were also pretty large. Bummer #2. Our guide was a very good storyteller, but many of the stories were more about modern haunts that people encountered...More

This tour was clearly a problem from the start. With over 60 attending the Ultimate Extended Tour on Fri Oct 13th, this organization still felt one guide would be enough. While the weather (and ghosts) were less than good, the one thing this company could...More

I have been in many Ghost Walks, this is, I am sorry to say, is the most disappointing. The guide was nice enough but subject matter and it's delivery didn't engage many, especially the younger guests.

The Ghost Tour is separate admission. While you're there you should eat at one of the taverns. :)
