We go to Williamsburg every year for the Ghost Tours. This years experience with the Witches, Ghosts and Pirates was wonderful. Very interactive. Keeping the crowd involved was a great idea as well as keeping the children involved kept them interested. There were facts about the area and buildings that we had not heard previously. We will definitely go again to another one of their tours as well as next year.

Such a great tour for anyone interested in the paranormal side of Colonial Williamsburg! I felt that I learned quite a lot and our tour guide, Lexi, was EXTREMELY knowledgeable! I highly recommend this to anyone looking to expand their knowledge of the area!

Fun tour! We have two younger boys and the addition of a witch and pirate all dressed up leading the tour really made it that much better. They got to learn some history and have fun doing it. We passed several other tours and we were the only ones laughing. The whole family would highly recommend it!
