Overview
Follow an 18th century ghost, as you walk down the dark streets of town. You will immediately hear of the bodies, buried behind the homes and shops, throughout town. Strange stories of the secret vault, buried in the graveyard, and dead bodies still lying below the church floors, will creep you out! Speaking of the vault, move on to Mr. George Wythe’s house, where the old well still stands, today. Secrets of Thomas Jefferson’s visit down the well’s tunnel into the vault, proves the heavy conspiracy associated with this town. Mr. Wythe may just pop his ghostly face out to greet you, as he peeks between the cracks of the shutters, opening and closing before your eyes. Guests call this tour the most engaging, unique and fun tour in town. We pride ourselves on being the only in-character, costumed tour, in Williamsburg. There’s a ghost waiting just for you!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Bonnie, the owner, met everyone at the departure point and introduced us to our guide, Mike. Mike was fantastic! He was 'in character' and told stories as though he lived the experiences and was really there when they occurred.
