Discover harrowing details of the 1600s witch trials as you walk down Williamsburg’s darkest streets at night.

Your tour guide will tell ghost stories, while walking you through town, in the dark night, by candlelight. You will hear of ghostly encounters which have been thoroughly researched and documented. They never embellish the stories. What you hear are true experiences and sightings of ghosts.
Since they conduct the tours in the historic area of Williamsburg, no ghost tours are allowed to enter these 18th-century buildings. You may walk up to the buildings, however, once the tour is over.
All tickets are non-refundable.
Bring an umbrella. Ghost and witch tours are conducted rain or shine. If the conditions become hazardous or severe, they reserve the right to cancel the tour. They recommend dressing appropriately for all weather conditions. They will contact you if the ghost or witch tour is canceled, so be certain to give us your cell phone number when you reserve.
If they cancel your tour for any reason, you will receive a full refund or, if you prefer, you may reschedule.
You can either print your tickets or show them via your cell phone.

If you are late, you will miss the tour. Tours leave right on time, and to be fair to the whole group, they cannot wait for late arrivals, neither will they call to see where you are.
They have seen lots of ghosts on the tours, but they cannot guarantee it. Please feel free to ask your tour guide about haunted experiences in town.
This is a storytelling tour, not a haunted house. Nothing is staged and no employees will jump out and try to scare you. If anything happens on your tour, it is truly paranormal in nature.
They love dogs and welcome them on all the outdoor tours. Please see that your dog is friendly, on a leash, and please be sure to bring the appropriate supplies to clean up any messes.
