What people are saying about Williamsburg, Virginia

We go to Williamsburg every year for the Ghost Tours. This years experience with the Witches, Ghosts and Pirates was wonderful. Very interactive. Keeping the crowd involved was a great idea as well as keeping the children involved kept them interested. There were facts about the area and buildings that we had not heard previously. We will definitely go again to another one of their tours as well as next year.

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!
