What is a ghost tour?
Your tour guide will tell ghost stories, while walking you through town, in the dark night, by candlelight. You will hear of ghostly encounters which have been thoroughly researched and documented. Stories have been reported by security officers, employees and residents of the town.
Do we get to go inside the buildings?
Since we conduct our tours in the historic area of Williamsburg, no ghost tours are allowed to enter these 18th-century buildings. You may walk up to the buildings, however, once the tour is over. Tickets to Colonial Williamsburg may be purchased for entrance to many of the buildings, during the day, but are not needed to attend one of our ghost or witch tours.
What happens in the case of rain?
If it rains, tours will still be conducted. Bring an umbrella or rain jacket!
Are restrooms available throughout the tour?
Restrooms are available, though generally not along our tour route. They are easily accessible a short distance away, however, so you may walk to one, if need be.
Is the tour suitable for children?
Yes. Tours are family-friendly.
What happens if I show up late?
If you arrive late, you will miss the tour. Tours depart promptly at their scheduled time.
