Total disappointment
, Jul 2020
Completely worthless.. the young lady who guided us showed no enthusiasm, her gasping speech made the stories non understandable. sometimes she also had some memory loss while telling the stories. it was an experience to never and ever be repeatable. I should be refunded.

Could have been a lot better but...

We signed up for the extended ghost tour from 8 to 9:30PM, and we were really excited about it. It could have been the heat or it could be that the tour guide was new and not adequately trained, but the tour was not scary or spine tingling at all. It could have been though...the sparse information that was mentioned could have been elaborated upon and presented in an entirely different manner. Colonial Williamsburg is a fascinating and historical gem full of ambiance and well...history. Walking around at night should stir anyone's imagination. It did not happen. Not one historical date was mentioned; the delivery was disjointed. I have been on other ghost tours in other states and the tour guides loved history, were well versed, and have a love of story telling. All these qualities that make a ghost tour memorable were missing. In light of everything happening around the world, this is a minor inconvenience. I just thought it should be mentioned as I believe you would want an honest review.

Hi Anne, I am so sorry that the tour did not meet your expectations. We strive to have an equal amount of history as well as the scare factor. If you could email us at and tell us how we can help. Thank you
Great Family Experience

Our tour guide was fantastic, Julie H - she kept everyone entertained! She provided lots of stories and went above and beyond with answering all questions. We did not sign up for the extended tour but we will next time. Would highly recommend.

Nice hr long tour some history given. Got a few orb pictures but not as much as last time- too many tours being given at the same time. Our guide did an excellent job. Thank you!

Thanks Krys!
Love Williamsburg tours

Our guide was delightful and nobody got lost! I do think that there were way too many tours going on at the same time and that was distracting

Hi Krys! Thank you for the feedback! We're glad you liked our guide! We apologize that it was very crowded during Halloween season. We will pass along that feedback to the tour managers. Thank you!

Not great, not bad. There were some interesting stories, but no wow factors. They walk you around to the different homes and tell some of the sightings that have occurred. Other large groups from different tour places are also walking around making for a bit of a crowded night crowd. It would be better if there were fewer people, but obviously the company has no control over that. You could also read up on a few ghost stories and do your own night time sightseeing instead of doing the tour. So if you have kids, this would probably be more scary, but for teena and adults, not so much.

Hi Sryan. We're sorry you didn't have a great experience. We apologize that you weren't as wowed as some of guests have been. Please try our late night ghost hunt for something even creepier and more interactive!

Our ghost tour was led by Jordan, a very enthusiastic tour guide. We were shown many paranormal sights and even found a ghost in one of our pictures!

The tour guide, a university student, was excellent. He loved the stories himself and made it thought provoking. His enthusiasm was infectious. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
