This Ghost tour was a perfect mix of history and spookiness. Our guide kept the tour interesting and added a perfect amount of humor. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants a little history behind the haunting.
West Grove, Pennsylvania
Allison was great! She provided the perfect mix of humor and history. Our whole group really enjoyed it. We found her to be engaging, knowledgable, and very personable. She clearly has a passion for the area history and it comes through in the tour. She had far more stories than other ghost tours we've been on. We are already talking about another trip down to Williamsburg.
Locust Grove, Virginia
Four of us took the tour on Halloween night and were thrilled to have done so. Our tour guide, Allison, was informative, engaging, and extremely knowledgeable of the history of the area. She told so many different stories and the 90 minutes flew by. We would definitely recommend this tour as a "must" while visiting Williamsburg

What an evening!
The family went on their first ghost tour last evening. We ranged from 70 to 14 in age, and I want to say we all had a wonderful evening. Being a history major in college, I was so impressed with the stories Allison told and the excitement in her talks. I learned things about Williamsburg and residents of long ago that I never knew. Don't miss out on this tour. I will go back again and again, and will tell all my friends about it.

Alison is a great storyteller, very personable and knowledgeable. She is passionate about the history of Williamsburg and its ghost stories. I highly recommend this walking tour.
Virginia Beach, Virginia
Allison had an incredible tour. She is a fabulous storyteller who was able to engage the tour group with 2nd graders all the way up to mature adults. She was personable and kept our group engaged and excited even with rain!!!

Allison is an excellent storyteller! The tour was very informative and fun. I highly recommend putting it on your list of activities while visiting this historic area. (5 stars on Facebook)
I was on this tour expecting boring stories but I was shocked when I almost peed my pants from the Randolph House and the pictures I took! (5 stars on Facebook)
Awesome! My whole family enjoyed it and Allison was great! (5 stars on Facebook)
Something for everyone
Just got back from the ghost tour and everyone in our group had an awesome time. It was my husband, both of my children and their families. 9 of us ranging in ages from 68 to 10. We all loved it. There was something for everyone. You don't even have to believe in ghost! Allison entertained us with her historical trivia and hauntingly eerie tales of ghostly mischief. I'd take the tour again, and I highly recommend it. (5 stars on Facebook)

Allison was very knowledgeable and friendly! The tour was great, captured a ton of orbs on camera and also what appears to be the face of PEYTON RANDOLPH!! We had a great time and would even do it all over again! Thanks again, Allison! (5 stars on Facebook)

Loved the tour!
Loved the tour with Allison! Once we got to the Courthouse, my friend's camera/phone stopped functioning correctly. Once we left that area, her camera was fine. And her ghost app on her phone was going wild!
A fantastic tour with Allison! First time we’ve ever done a ghost tour, but won’t be the last. It was a lot of fun, and we got to learn some new things about Williamsburg and the folks who helped make it famous. I used the “Ghost Radar” Legacy app on my Android. It went off several times, with many energy spots popping up on the screen in addition to the words it captured. We got a good 32 words while on our tour. I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to have a different experience of Colonial Williamsburg, believers or not.

Went on a tour with my mother, husband, and two tween boys. Our guide shared a lot of historic tales that were interesting to all of us. It was an exciting tour even for the family skeptic. We got some great pictures too. Highly recommend.

Thoroughly enjoyed it
Went on the tour last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. So many times on a tour like this you can’t hear the guide, or can’t understand what he or she is saying, or can understand but the guide is not particularly interesting or well-versed, etc. But not so with Allison. She spent decades in front of a classroom at William and Mary and it shows. She knows the area. She knows the history. She knows how to tell a story. She’s good with kids. I’d go again in a heartbeat.

A great time
Great tour with Allison! Her tour is the perfect blend of fun and history. Our entire group had a great time. Allison was knowledgable, engaging, and very personable. Her passion for history was evident throughout the tour. She also had more ghost stories than the average ghost tour I’ve been on. We got some great pictures, so take your phone! I’m sure we will be back.
