    Good haunted history lesson
    Guna_S, Nov 2022
    We did the night tour and it set the stage for a scary atmosphere. Our guide was good and made our imagination run wild! The photos he shared with us really upped the tour and made the experience that much eerier. Only downside was that we almost didn’t make it on time for the tour as the directions took us to a road that was closed till 10 pm. After making a no. of wrong turns we arrived in front of a parking area that said only private parking, was not made clear to us that we were allowed to park there.
    A different, but better type of ghost tour
    Dawn_I, Oct 2022
    This tour was different than other ghost tours because it was more than just stories. We got to see real photos of ghosts and apparitions taken by both the trout guide and past guests. We were able to take our own photos and have him help us identify if we had captured any ghosts in our own photos. The stories we heard were historically accurate and not just fiction for the tour. It was also very affordable as compared to other tours and it was longer in duration without having to pay extra for “bonus” locations. I did this tour with my husband and my 2 kids (age 11 and 13) and we all enjoyed it.
    A memorable night

    We had so much fun on this ghost tour! Tim was a great story teller. Even though my 9 year old was scared by the end, she ended up saying it was her favorite part of our trip to Williamsburg (better than Busch Gardens?!). We all enjoyed taking pictures and looking for ghosts.

    Ghost Photo Tour - Williamsburg
    Bryan_G, Nov 2021
    Guide (Tim S.) was very personable and knowledgeable. Loved viewing his photographs. Actually going to try and find a copy of his book(s) today. Great fun listening to him and trying our hand at some ghost photography.
    Kirsten_L, Nov 2021
    Very confusing to get to location. No easy close parking and unclear directions to parking or location for out of town visitors. Went on two other ghost tours and had no problem; organized and well done. Once host realized had problems finding location and directions were unclear, no offer to refund money for tickets. Would not recommend spending money.
    History and ghosts
    Chrystal_M, Nov 2021

    Thanks so much for the great review!

    I didn't go because it was raining. I tried to find out if it was cancelled. The booking agent couldn't tell me and offered little in the way of help. Worst $35 ever spent.
    Response from Host, Nov 2021
    It was not raining at the time of the tour, & everyone else that booked came and enjoyed the tour. The website plainly states that tours will go on as scheduled whether it's raining or not, as do other tour companies in Williamsburg, because of the frequency of rain in this area. Otherwise any tour business in this town would not last long.
    The BEST Ghost Tour !!!

    One of the best ghost tours I’ve been on. The visuals and stories really were incredible. He had a visual and story for each place we visited, even the place we were staying on site. A must if you are looking for a great ghost tour.
