Overview

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.

Your appreciation is most welcome. Our company does its own historic research constantly so that we don't get stale and deliver things by rote. And we do serve as an overview of the history of the City of Williamsburg, including both before and after the...More

I highly recommend this tour! You will learn little-known historical facts and tidbits ( the story behind the story) that you won’t get anywhere else. Trish was an excellent tour guide!
