Historic Ghost Walk
This is a good activity for families with small children. Knowledgeable guides decked out in 18th Century Colonial garb will take you through the streets of Williamsburg by lantern light. Learn about the history of the area, hear about the legend of Blackbeard and huddle together in the dark as you learn about the resident ghosts of Williamsburg. Tours must be booked in advance over the phone. Children aged 6 and under are admitted free of charge.
The stories are very fascinating, and you walk through some very interesting areas. The campus of William & Mary is very spooky in itself. I would have really preferred if we could have actually walked into a few of the houses. Overall, I do highly recommend it as it is entertaining, but don't expect to get scared.
We both love Williamsburg .We were married there in 2001.Had been going there even brfore we were married ! There's nothing we don't like.It's a everything place.Bush Gardens ,shopping touring the houses,ghost walks,(it's the best) and the Estates ! Great food so much we love !We keep coming back year after year !
We had a wonderful time on the Ghost walk of Williamsburg. our guide was a wonderful speaker, very knowledgable of the history and lore. There are many, many guides so if you do not get a good one the tour will not be as enjoyable. Go early as there are several tours starting around the same times, if you do not like the guide you are assigned to just hold onto your ticket and wait for the next one starting a few minutes later.
First, we traveled to Virginia from NY with three families, 6 adults and 8 children which included my 18 month daughter. After a 1 1/2 day of touring Busch Gardens. One couple arranged for the tour. It was a disaster, We began our adventure at 8.45 pm, (after all it is a ghost tour). Our guide looked about 80 years old, could hardly hear his voice and spoke very slowly. A very nice man but definitely a cure for Insomnia. Within 10 minutes, the kids are acting up, the stories were a bit long and boring and of course too much standing around. We lasted about 45 minutes before we noticed people began to disappear. The guide began to take notice he was losing the crowd so he added some humor in his presentation. The jokes were great if you were born in the 1920's. Our kids were very tired and confused. Too make a long story short, half of us went back to our cars and fell asleep, the other half lasted till the end of the tour (10.45pm) I kid you not. Put it this way, none of us discussed the tour after the vacation.
If you do want to see the tour, I suggest a) Do not bring any children, b) Take a nap prior to the tour, C) wear sneakers and bring a warm sweater, D) A Large coffee is a must E) It's only 10 dollars F) You must enjoy History. take care
