Don’t book last hour

After we located the tour and missed the first 25 minutes, it was very informative. I guess since we booked online within an hour from the beginning of the tour, our guide did not expect us and left the departure location earlier than the departure time of 8 pm. We waited there from 7:51 till 8:10 before we set out on our own. After chasing down three other tours before one guide told us to look for guide in a red shirt, we then found and joined our group of about 10 people. The guide did try to catch us up on the missed information. I also tried to call the number listed and got a not available message from Verizon. Moral of my story: don’t book last minute.

We do welcome last minute reservations. We apologize for the confusion, but the guide did try to locate you before she left at 805 pm. You also were issued a refund prior to your review. Our tour meets on the DOG street side of the William and Mary Book store. We are so glad you enjoyed your tour once we found you. Thanks so much for taking the time to review your experience.
The original ghost tour
, Jul 2020
This was a tour that educated us on paranormal sightings and activity in the haunted building and homes of President and people in the area. It was interesting and some seen things that made it scary. Yet the guide clarified u need to be sensitive to the paranormal to see! Well Savannah seen the floating candle from one room to another. We both seen shadows float across the home. Yet kaleah seen red orbs. She later said she seen actual people jumping from a home and on the roof of a home that had save all the people in the house but one when the basement caught fire. So I do believe in ghost yet I don't believe they are meant to harm us.

We have had many guests encounter other worldly things on our tours, even total nonbelievers. Being sensitive is not a requirement but it sometimes enhances the experience! We are so delighted you had such a great experience.
Must go! You won't be disappointed!

Not too Ghost-y

Historical tour of select homes with stories of death, murder, theft and scorned lovers of colonial williamsburg. Guide may have been a bit distracted, but pleasant.
