from The Dead of Night Ghost Tour
Hear factual stories of real ghosts who inhabit the town of Williamsburg. Follow your costumed, ghostly guide down eerie streets, by candlelight. A first-person tour, your guide becomes a ghost from the 18th Century, who lived and died in this very haunted town. You will experience the Peyton Randolph House, the most haunted in Virginia. Guests often see and hear strange, inexplicable sights and sounds, so you will not want to attend without a camera in hand. A truly one-of-a-kind, unique tour you will not want to miss!

This original tour is what our business has been built on. Our success is because of this unique and fun tour. Presented by the ghost of an 18th century character from town, you will be taken down the hauntingly scary streets, by candlelight.

Suitable for all age groups, children love the character in costume as older guests fully understand the fully researched ghost stories that are told. This tour is not a history tour. Children ages 6 and under are free.

My boyfriend and I went to the combo tour this past Saturday. It was really cool and learned some new things about the history of Williamsburg. Our tour guides Will and Nikki were very detailed and knowledgeable and the tour was fun and I got some cool "sketches." Orbs galore.

"It’s a paranormal activity tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed July 19, 2018 NEW
I want to begin this review by saying our tour guide was great! She did a great job leading a large group through the streets of williamsburg at night and telling engaging ghost stories. I gave this tour 3 stars because I’ve been on better ghost tours. We got about 4 ghost stories in the course of an hour. For the money you pay that doesn’t seem like a lot. In addition to this, I don’t know if I’d call what we heard ghost stories. It was more of a tour of what paranormal activity has been seen and documented in Williamsburg. Which is fun but it would have been equally as fun to have heard more of the legends associated with some of the places we visited.
