Our ghost stories
Our ghost stories about early Williamsburg residents have been handed down for centuries. They’ve been recorded by some and frequently kept alive by our faithful dead. Many guests end up with a few surprises in their photos!

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. Starting at 7:46pm, …we got a good 32 words while on our tour. – “Audience, Sharp, JANUARY, Continent, Law, Write, Headed, Package, Pan, Establish, Branch, Report, Kristin, JANUARY, Idea, Or, Handle, Buy, Hide, Parent, Pain, Brush, Factor, Order, Won, Facing, Mississippi, Brush, Square, Planned, Nodded, Exactly”.Very cool! 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 interest…ing to all of us. It was an exciting tour even for the family skeptic. We got some great pictures too. Highly recommend.

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..

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.

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.
