Our 1-hour Ghostly Tales tour takes you through Williamsburg's historic area in the evening. You will be introduced to the historic importance of each site visited, you will hear of the local ghostly legends that surround them, and of recent encounters with the spirits that reside there. Our Walk About History tour is a 1 1/2-hour introduction to the history of Williamsburg - its historical importance, development in the 18th century, glimpses into daily life of colonial inhabitants, and modern restoration. Our unique African American History Tour is specific to the Black experience in Williamsburg and lasts 1 1/2 hours. ALL TOURS ARE OUTDOOR WALKING TOURS. WE DO NOT GO INSIDE THE BUILDINGS. An excellent choice if you have limited time to visit Williamsburg, or are looking for an in-depth orientation before touring the town on your own.

This was very interesting even if you aren’t into history! The guide was excellent. It is a lot of walking, so wear comfortable shoes & bring water.

We were honored to host students from Duke University. This tour was created to fill a void in Williamsburg. It is the only tour concerning the African American experience here. We are forthright and completely honest about the subject. Our research is solid, and we...More

Trish was our guide and did a wonderful job! She knows the background and presents the history and the stories in a very delightful way. She has a great sense of humor! We loved it!

Wanted to learn more about the history of Williamsburg than what you could get just walking down the streets so we decided to sign up for this walking tour. We did the tour that offers general history of the town and not the ghost tour....More

There are several paid lots nearby. We parked at the Visitor's Center which was free. It was a little farther away and made for a good walk, but certainly not horrible. Just make sure to allow yourself plenty of extra... More

Although fares to Colonial Williamsburg are sold - there is no fee to enter and shop and explore. Certainly, no entrance ticket is necessary to do the one day tour.
