1. Colonial Ghosts of the Revolution Haunted Tour by USGA

Since the 1930s, Colonial Williamsburg has honored the city’s past by recreating the glory days of the 18th century. Horse-drawn carriages, cobblestone paths, historic brick buildings, and vintage clothing set a charming, patriotic scene — but there’s a dark energy lurking in the shadows of this tourist town… Join a seasoned local guide for a nighttime walking tour of the most chilling, haunted sites in Williamsburg. Did you know one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence was poisoned by his grandnephew? Or that a sadistic Civil War surgeon did his dirty deeds at Market Square? Williamsburg may be home to American treasures like the Raleigh Tavern, but it’s also home to one of the most haunted, cursed homes ever built: The Peyton Randolph House. Stand in its blood-red glow as you hear first-hand accounts of its evil energy. Tales of true crime, betrayal, and bloody wars line the streets of this famous city. Are you brave enough to get to know the real Williamsburg? The spirits are waiting.

Catherine gave such an amazing tour to what ended up being just my husband and I. She even took us to some unplanned spots when we mentioned that we were interested. This is a must when visiting Williamsburg. Highly recommend!

Bryce was a great tour guide! His enthusiasm and stories made the ghost tour really entertaining. Some creepy photos were taken, and during a tale with a black cat, one showed up!

My party had a great time. The storytelling was great. Bryce was great. Unexplained things happen but that just made the night even better.

Frightfully fun! Robert was knowledgeable and entertaining. History mixed with some Ghost stories. Thanks!

Super great job! My family enjoyed our time. Kaley was fantastic.
