Great experience. The guide was knowledgeable and fun. I do believe I caught something quite unusual in the 2 photos taken milliseconds apart.

Our guide Ben weaved a memorable night, full of history and ghosts. He was an excellent story-teller, drawing our group in with tales from the past, casting a spell on the audience. Ben presented with great narrative timing, thought quick on his feet, and was a wonderful balance of humor and spooky. Well-paced tour and fun for the whole family - would recommend!

Great experience! Really great story tellers. My husband and I talked about it all night afterwards and did our own research. Would love to do it again.

Randy was an amazing guide! He was very informative and answered questions that weren’t even a part of the tour! He also brought us into the stories with him.

Our host Woody made our walk thru haunted Williamsburg come alive with his experiences on a stormy, spooky night. A great group activity.

Great tour! We had a full moon the night of our tour which added to the spookiness! My husband and I really enjoyed hearing the stories and seeing the spooky sites in Colonial Williamsburg. Would definitely recommend. Good for families as well.

Ben was a great story teller. We learned a little history. Wish we took this tour before the CW tour so we know what to look for when visiting the houses. My family thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
